Baseball versus Softball. When you look at the picture of the man playing baseball and the other picture of the woman playing softball, you will be almost confused that the two players are playing the same game. A newbie in this game will be forgiven because the two games are almost identical in many respects, but you will certainly notice a few distinctive characteristics between the two when you pay close attention. To identify the differences, you need to pay close attention to certain characteristics like the pitching area, distance from the pitcher’s area to home plate, base paths, field size, size of the ball, and the bats.
Although a closer look at the two games shows the above differences, the two games appears physically challenging as they both show a considerable necessity of strategy and skill. Save for the close examination of the size of the field, size of the ball, shape of the bat and the pitching mould, the two games are significantly similar. However the softball appears softer and fit for the woman and the baseball has a masculine look and fit for the man. Notable differences from the two pictures therefore, can be identified from the bats, fields and pitches.
