What Is The Difference Between Baseball and Softball — 17 Comments

  1. Hi Jeremy
    I had no idea that there were so many differences between baseball and softball. I just thought softball was just that, playing the game with a softer ball (lol). I did however notice that the pitching styles were different but I gotta say, this post is an eye opener. Now I know better and I am sure I can impress a friend or two with this new knowledge. Thank you.

    • Hey Vanessa! It seems to be a common misunderstanding about a softball being soft. I still cannot understand why they decided to call it “softball”. You are now fully armed with the differences, so impress away (lol). Thanks for stopping by. ~Jeremy

  6. Very nice page you made it so easy to understand. Nice theme. I used to play softball when I was in high school during intramurals and that was quite a long time ago. Nice to refresh again about it and how it differs with baseball.
