Fastpitch & Slowpitch

The two most popular versions of softball are fastpitch and slowpitch. Fastpitch is typically played in club and association competitions, and is the traditional basis for elite state, national, and international championships and events.

In fastpitch, the ball is pitched without limit on arc or velocity, which is the main difference to slowpitch. In recent years modifications have developed to meet the demands of the diverse range of softball participants.
