When the ball is in the hand of the pitcher inside the circle , baserunners may not advance.
85 Type your answer here...
10 seconds from the time the pitcher has the ball in the circle. This rule is seldom ever enforced. The only way you will ever get this call is for the pitcher to get on the rubber and ready to pitch which will show a delay by the batter.
43 feet in fast pitch
The height of an outfield fence in fastpitch softball is generally between 4 and 8 feet.
A fastpitch bat is typically used in a game of fast pitch softball. The bats usually come in composite and aluminum styles. Louisville Slugger makes some fastpitch bats.
They can both be effective pitches. Whether a pitcher can control a pitch is the key to how effective that pitch is.
the fastest pitch ever recorded was 93.2 in the 1996 olimpics!!!
Slowpitch Softball is played using a high-arc pitching technique where the ball slowly falls into the strike-zone. Slowpitch speeds range from 25mph-35mph. Fastpitch Softball a windmill pitching technique is used that increases that speed of the pitch significantly and allows the pitcher to throw different kinds of pitches like drop, rise, curve, screw, and change. Fastpitch speed range from usually 50mph-65mph. The rules are basically the same, minus some variations in batting. In slow pitch if you foul off the third strike you are out. In fastpitch the strike is not called until you swing with no contact with the ball. Both require different equipment. EX:A fastpitch bat is different from a slowpitch bat. Slow Pitch...the coach pitches it and fast pitch....one of the teammates pitches it! :)
10 teams are in fast pitch softball.
No, but the pitcher still can pitch the ball and it is either a called ball or a called strike depending on where it is located on the plate
To be a decent softball pitcher it could take 3-4 years to pitch a softball. Fastpitch that is. The ball is bigger and weighs more than a baseball. The wind up is tricky. Most pitchers that I know have to practice their pitching around 3 to 4 days a week.
it depends how many games are at the tournament.
