UK Softball Rules for Beginners

The basic rules of softball have many similarities to baseball but there are a few significant differences for the 'softer' recreational game.

ISF SOFTBALL RULES: The three most noticeable differences between softball regulations and baseball are the smaller field size, larger strike zone, and a ball pitched underhand in slow pitch recreation games.

Softball Rules and Regulations were first created as a game for ladies called indoor baseball in Chicago around 1887.

Other common names for the modern day sport include kitten ball, mush ball, and playground.

The playful and amusement sport is widely popular throughout North America but there are professional leagues played in the United Kingdom, Europe, and in Asia.
