Slow Pitch Softball

I have my first game of the season tonight and this is the FIRST time I've ever played slow pitch, and co-ed. Tore it up in fast-pitch in highschool. Is there that much of a difference? Any tips?

Its hard for most people to adjust to the slower pitch after playing fast pitch. You have to make yourself wait on the ball...hitting will be your biggest challenge. Have fun....seems late in the year to be playing your first game.

Co-ed tip #1....flash your boobs at the males on the field whenever possible to ensure base hits,dropped fly balls,and close calls at home.

Im a field superviser for Warrensburg Park and rec, so thats all i do is watch softball for 5 hours a day. What I have noticed them do is literally hit it at the girls... Kind of a shitty way to do it, but it works every time for the guys and girls that can place their hits.

Big difference. Waiting for that moonpitch to come down can be hard at times. You also have to uppercut the ball to meet it solid and drive it. Totally different than the level swing that one needs to put on a fast pitch.

Patience, is the best thing I can think of. The other is, you can actually pick your shots in softball. If you know there is a weekness in the infield or outfield, you can deliberately drive the ball to that part of the field.

Why is it called softball anyway? The balls aren't soft at all.

wait on the ball.

Arc limit? 12' ?

start in the back of the box when batting.

Lots of time to move forward to adjust to pitch if needed.

Hitting to a girl never hurts

Yep. Coming straight from the hardball diamond, you go, gee, I bet I can tag up on that fly foul ball that is only 10 feet from third base, they are going to be all happy they caught it right against the wall, and have no idea I am coming and no one is covering, the pitcher, catcher and third baseman are all over there and going to be high fiving.


I tag, they react exactly like I thought and I go, I am halfway there, and the fools react startled, then finally start running towards third, and I am already sliding in.

Then the best part is, the fools all are going, he can't do that, not on a foul ball. The ump, being a good ump stands there silently, saying nothing. "Well can you" they ask the ump. He puts his hand out, safe.

Then the dummies go, "appeal it, he had to have left early, just appeal it."

So they did, and as soon as they did, the ump goes emphatically, "SAFE!!11!"



Yeah, its pretty soft ball when you can pull a move like that on people.

Glory days.

Don't wear a bra while you're playing...... it's a known fact that bras have no place in softball.

Ohh and be sure to post the film of the game....

Well, here's what I do - follow my lead. I go out, hit homeruns and make no errors. It's pretty simple, actually.

You missed the part were you drink so much beer it makes you think you're hitting homeruns and not making any errors when you're actually striking out or stumbling over first base.......
