Balls/strikes/outs are consistent. Baseball can leave the base prior to the pitcher releasing the ball, whereas in softball the runners may not leave until the ball is released. If you are familiar with baseball, you can research softball under ASA or Pony leagues for additional information.At the minutia level of detail, softball players curiously do not wear pants, like baseball players [in 2008, the trend toward pants is gaining momentum...basically TEAM USA (the Olympic Team, is one of the last organized teams that wear shorts]. The softball is usually yellow vs. white. The softball pitcher may leave the pitching rubber during delivery before releasing the ball; in baseball this would be an illegal pitch. The softball bat is also different from a baseball bat in that it is not tapered. In ASA Softball, all players are required to have a cage attached to the batting helmet.

Baseball is open to both men and women. But it is very difficult for a woman to make it very far in baseball because of softball, though some woman have played in the Major Leagues and the Negro leagues. Little league baseball is open to both genders, and schools are required to allow women to play on a baseball team if that school does not have a softball team.

softball was more played like baseball back then. they used a baseball and wooden bats. they also made the women wear skirts to make it a little more girlie. now girls use aluminum or composite bats and a bigger ball.
