well if a pitcher just starts off and throws for a long time her arm will be sore, but if she is used to it, she will be okay to through for a decent amount of time and will have to ice her arm.

They do in little league, but the action of pitching a softball is less harmful to the body than an overhand pitch, asa and usssa haven't seen the need for it as yet, there is not enough data on injuries due to extended pitching underhand.

Can a softball pitcher throw more accurate than a baseball pitcher.?

This is an interesting question. I don't know the exact answer, but i would guess that a softball pitcher could indeed be more accurate than a baseball pitcher at their respective distances. baseball pitcher's throwing mechanics are unatural for the human body as the arm comes up over the shoulder and is torqued, so they will tire a lot faster than a softball pitcher. a softball pitcher has a more natural motion as the arm stays down and the arm will not tire as quickly. this would lead me to think that they could indeed throw more accurate, but for a specific answer i would have to say it just depends on the individual.

Can a softball pitcher throw overhand?

There is nothing I have found in the MLB rules that would prohibit a pitcher from a pitching motion similar to that of a softball pitcher. Actually, the underhanded motion was the rule when Alexander Cartwright came up with the rules of baseball in 1845. I have included a link, named 'MLB Rule 8', to the MLB rules concerning the pitcher on this page.
