When hit by a boy with a bat wich goes father softball or baseball?

It depends on which bat you use. If you use a softball bat, a baseball will go farther. If you use a baseball bat, a baseball will also go farther. Baseballs are generally considered a "live" ball. It's hot off the bat. This is why major leaguers use wood bats. The "dead"-ness of their bats slow the ball down a little. So A Softball is generally considered a "dead" ball. Softball players use bats that are "hot." In order to increase the speed of the ball off the bat. So when you pair a hot bat with a hot ball, (a baseball and softball bat) it will damage your bat (and is not recommended to try), but it will go farther. Also, a softball is larger. Based on the laws of aerodynamics, a baseball picks up less wind-resistance, and thus travels at a faster rate and farther on the fly. Therefore, a baseball will travel farther. Think of the proportions of a field. Baseball fields are larger because of how far and hard the ball travels through the air. Softball fields are smaller because the softballs are bigger and travel more difficultly through the air. It depends on which bat you use. If you use a softball bat, a baseball will go farther.

Why will a baseball go farther then a softball when you throw it?

An object with less mass will have a greater speed when the same amount of energy is expended into it. Thus, a baseball will be going much faster than a softball at the time it is thrown. For the same angle of launch, an object will go further when it has a higher velocity (a fairly trivial and simple fact). Additionally, an object with greater surface area is slowed much quicker than one with less surface area. The baseball experiences less drag at the same speed than the softabll; while it is travelling faster and experiences greater drag as a result, it will also go further before being remotely near to the speed of the softball.
