> 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)
I think both sports have to be respected. I also think that fastpitch softball is growing everyday. And what you said about women and the major leagues.....i have to say is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Softball is rising to the top. I also randomly went around and asked MEN which they would prefer to watch, a MLB game or college softball game and almost all of them prefer softball- personally i think its a lot more intense than baseball because one-the field is closer and also the ball is bigger and harder to drive out into the outfield. I love Baseball and I love softball and i respect anyone who has put forth hard work and dedication i just wish men would get the same perspective as women. I wouldnt be surprised if there isnt Major League Softball teams poppin' up pretty soon.
