Is Softball A Sport?

- Softball has never been a sport that has been of great interest to me and I had never attended a game prior to watching the Fighting Illini Softball team. I did not really have any impressions regarding the softball team other than some opinions from our class saying that overall they are not a very strong team and have struggled in the past in terms of stats and accumulating fans.

Softball : The Major Differences Of Softball Vs. Baseball

- Softball is not the same thing as baseball. The first question I get when I tell people I play softball is, “Isn't that the same thing as baseball?”. Yeah, no.

Second, in softball, the pitching rubber is 43 feet away from the plate instead of 60.5 feet away from the plate. Also, you can lead off the bases in baseball, which are 90 feet away, and you cannot in softball, where the bases are only 60 feet away....   [tags: Baseball, Softball, Catcher, Baseball positions]
