Softball is a sport with less intensity than baseball. When softball is played, two teams will alternately hit and catch the ball. The two sides of the game will compete for high scores in seven games (i.e. seven rounds of hitting). Three batters will be eliminated from the game. The half game of the team will end. Two teams of the seven games will draw, and the two teams will enter the playoffs until one side wins.
Softball is developed from baseball, and its rules are similar. Its technical difficulty and intensity are lower than baseball. Softball is divided into two kinds – fast softball and slow softball. Both forms of softball are deeply loved by the American people. With the expansion of American power in the Second World War, softball was popularized all over the world. In the early stage of softball development, there were four shortstop players and ten players on each side.
