Softball Facts

The game of softball is not an official sport in the Summer Olympics anymore, but when it was the US Softball Team won gold both in 1996 and 2000. In 1996, the US beat China and in 2000, the US beat Japan. There is a petition to bring back both softball and baseball to the Summer Olympic games.

Despite the name, the ball used is not soft. It is about 12 in. (30 cm) in circumference (sometimes larger for slow-pitch), which is 3 in. (8 cm) larger than a baseball. The infield in softball is smaller than in baseball; each base is 60 ft (18 m) from the next, as opposed to baseball's 90 ft (27 m). There are two types of softball: in the most common, slow-pitch softball, the ball, sometimes larger than the standard 12 in, must arch on its path to the batter, 10 players make up a team, and bunting and stealing are prohibited; in fast-pitch softball the pitch is fast, there are 9 players on a team, and bunting and stealing are permitted. Softball rules vary somewhat from those of baseball. Two major differences are that the ball must be pitched underhand?from 46 ft (14 m) for men or 40 ft (12 m) for women as compared with 60.5 ft (18.4 m) in baseball?and that seven innings instead of nine constitute a regulation game.


Softball was known as various other names including 'diamond ball' and 'mush ball' before a Denver YMCA official suggested the name softball in 1926 when talking to the National Recreation Congress
