Baseball

Softball and baseball are American sports which fall into the same category as the British game of rounders. The basic principles are the same: a player stands with a bat, is bowled to or pitched at with the ball which is hit as hard and as far as possible while the batsman runs around a series of four bases trying not to be caught out (by a player catching the ball before it bounces) or stumped out (by a player with the ball ‘stumping’ the base that a the batsman is running to). The main difference between baseball and softball is the style of pitching, in baseball, the ball can be pitched in any way although the majority of players choose the over arm style, whilst in softball the ball must be pitched underarm. Much of the kit for the sports is similar. Players sport t-shirts and jackets although cleats and caps are more associated with baseball than softball. Softball is certainly a less aggressive sport than baseball although neither are contact sports. If you are new to the idea, you may wish to start with softball to get comfortable and then progress to baseball when you are ready.
