My hypothesis is that the Baseball will indeed go farther. To explain why well because it is smaller so it will gain more speed. While a softball is big it will not gain as much speed but could be hit far as well. thank you.

It is smaller, harder, and has less wind resistance.

I don't think so..a softball is bigger. More mass means more resistance.

### Which can be thrown further a softball or baseball?

A baseball for sure. Baseballs have a denser mass than softballs, and because they are smaller they have less air resistance. This is the reason that in baseball the fences and bases are farther than in softball (regulation baselines in baseball is 90', softball is 60' ).

### You think that a softball would travel the farthest out of a baseball?

baseballs travel farther because they are more aerodynamic

### 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.

### Does a baseball travel farther than a softball?

The baseball will travel farther because it is smaller. The smaller an object is, the less resistance it has to overcome to continue traveling. This is one of the reasons why a softball field is so much smaller than a baseball field. If softball was played on a baseball field, no one would be able to hit home-runs.

### Does a baseball go further hit with metal or wood?

When hitting a softball you can hear the tink off of the bat. When you hit a baseball you hear kind of a slap and therefore when you hit a baseball goes farther.

### Does freezing a softball make it go farther?

Yes it does. Will a hard compression ball go farther than a softer one? The harder the ball the farther it will travel.

### Can a softball go farther if hit with an aluminum bat or a plastic bat?

an aluminum bat is harder so it hits farther

### Which travels farther an eleven inch softball or a twelve inch softball?

i would say a eleven inch due to the fact that it is lighter. but i am no mathmatician, just a lover of softball. HELP PUT SOFTBALL BACK IN THE OLYPMICS!!!!

### What travels farther a cold or a hot softball?

a hot softball travels faster. (Not considering your hand's reaction to the ball)
