> > ok first off softball is a lot harder. Also the swing is really different. Baseballs also go a lot farther. Did you know that Jennie Finch struck out a ton of MLB players? I rest my case....softball is soo much harder ok
> u suck
I disagree with your interpretation. Both sports have to be respected for what they offer. But if what you say is true, women would be playing major league baseball in significant numbers.

The fact that Jennie Finch struck out major league hitters is impressive, but many major league hitters do not fair well against pitchers they have never seen. And the hitters were probably trying to kill the ball rather than simply make contact and let their natural strength account for the distance. The first time around the pitcher has the advantage for the most part. It should also be noted that many major league players have trouble hitting a slow pitch softball.

The best fastpitch softball hitters (3 and 4 hitters) have solid rotational mechanics. Just watch and ESPN telecast and note for yourself.
(Food for thought)
