-There is always a possibility to get injured when pitching in either softball or baseball. But the pitch in softball (underhand) is more natural.
Softball and baseball are different for several reasons. First off the ball size of a softball and baseball are different. A softball is bigger than a baseball. Also a softball is yellow and a baseball is white. Also the dimensions of the field are different. In softball the bases are 60 ft apart and the baseball bases are 90 ft apart. The fences vary and the pitchers mounds for different leagues in both, but in baseball both the pitching mound and the fences tend to be a further than in softball. The pitching motions of the two are also different. In baseball one pitches overhand and in softball they pitch underhand. The games have the same basics concept, but differ a great deal.
A baseball is smaller than a softball softball- first base looks different Pitch underhand Baseball- overhand
not typically.. the softball is bigger than the baseball and is thrown underhand, typically making it slower. -Yes, throwing underhand is not as fast as a baseball pitch. But, in softball you have less time to react to the ball than you would in baseball. So technically softball.
Much like baseball pitching, softball pitching is used to throw a ball towards the batter. In baseball they throw overhand but in softball when your pitching you wind up, load, and throw underhand. There are more pitches possible in the softball pitching than baseball. All pitched possible to be thrown by a softball pitcher are screw ball, change-up, fastball, curve ball, rise ball, drop ball, and knuckle ball.
in softball you throw under hand in baseball you throw over hand. usually the fields in baseball are bigger than in softball.
Yes a softball is bigger than a baseball.
Softball uses a larger ball than baseball does. Softball bats and gloves are different in size and weight. Also a softball field is a lot smaller than a baseball field.
Yes, softball is better than baseball. Think about it. In major league baseball do you see many women? No. In softball do you see very many men? Yes. Not as many as women, but you still do see men. I also think softball is better because if you are pitcher, you can ruin your arm by pitching in baseball. In softball, you cannot hurt your arm unless you are pitching wrong. Some people say "softball is for girls" because it is a sport for wimps. But that is not true. softballs just leave a bigger bruse!
the thing about softball is that the ball thrown by the pitcher is different than baseball in baseball they trow it normal and in softball the pitcher trows it as a circular form, and baseball is played most by man and softball women.
No, a standard baseball is smaller than a standard softball.
softball uses a bigger ball than baseball and softball uses bigger bats than baseball.
WELL IF YOU WATCH SPORT SCIENCE THAN IT TELLS YOU THAT SOFTBALL IS HARDER THAN BASEBALL. JENNIE FINCH BROKE BULLET PROOF GLASS BUT THE BASEBALL JUST BOUNCED OFF THE GLASS. The softball is not harder than a baseball it may be bigger but the softball is not that hard! i play softball and i know that a softball is not harder than a baseball because i got hit with a softball and it didn't hurt as much as the baseball.....and the people who were pitching pitched the exact same speed! so there u have it a baseball IS HARDER than a softball!!!! Yes it is a fact that baseballs are harder than softballs because they are wound tighter. It may be a smaller ball but it is solid. softballs are rubber with string wrapped around it so they fly almost 200 ft less than a baseball will.
There are several key differences between softball and baseball regulations. The first difference is that there are different pitching rules. In baseball the ball is pitched overhand and in softball the ball is pitched underhand. There is also different sizes for balls, softballs are bigger than baseballs. There is also different rules in leading. For softball you can only leave the base once the ball leaves the pitchers hand, in baseball you are allowed to leave the base prior to the pitcher releasing the ball. Another difference is that in baseball bases are 90 feet apart, and in softball they are 60 feet apart.
They're bigger(the ball) and they're meant to throw underhand than baseball
The softball has longer legs.
Baseball is played with a smaller and harder ball than softball, hence the term SOFTball.
no, thethe gravity of a baseball is bigger than a softball's. so baseball has more friction than softball. hence, if you hit both of them from the same speed ,baseball will go further than softball.
A softball pitch is a lot harder to master than a baseball pitch because the motion is so different than regular throwing. However, once the pitcher has the motion down, the softball pitch is much easier on the body than a baseball pitch. This is because the softball pitch is a lot smoother than the violent baseball pitch. It cause a lot less shoulder injuries than a baseball pitch.
Softballs are heavier than baseballs. The softball field is smaller than a baseball field.
Baseball is not called softball. The game of softball is called softball because the ball used is softer than a baseball.
Are you asking if which sport is more popular, or which object is larger, a baseball or a softball? A softball is a larger ball then a baseball, but baseball is tremendously more popular than softball.
same as baseball, but the actual softball is bigger in size than the baseball
