Baseball vs Softball at Clarke University


The rules of the game are simple. The
baseball pitcher will face three softball batters, and the softball
pitcher will throw to three baseball hitters. The batter gets to see as many
pitches as it takes to either get a fair hit or a strikeout. Foul balls and walks
don’t count. The catcher will call the ball, and their ruling is final. For each
strike, the pitcher gets a point for their team, and for each hit, the batter
gets a point for their team. At the end of the game, the team with the most
points is the better sport. Good luck. Good luck. Let’s go, boys. Let’s go, ladies. What do you think the
most challenging part will be as a hitter? A different release point.
It’s going to be, I think, a lot harder to see the ball. I’m worried about the distance. The distance? Yeah, that’s true. The distance is closer. So, what do you think it’s going to take to strike the girls out? What are you going to do? I think we have to move around the zone with fastball, and a couple curve balls here and there. They won’t know what to do. I think, most importantly, to use the rise ball because I don’t think that they’ve had
experiences with the rise ball. Jenna, what do you typically pitch? I’m normally a drop ball
pitcher, but the rise ball I’m really feeling it today. Might see a little
change-up action, you never know. All right. Good to hear. Good to hear. Foreman, what kind of pitches are you gonna be throwing to these girls? What are they gonna see here? Fastball. Fastball. Oh, and another fastball. Shoving it. Another fastball. I’m Jenna Schwartzoff. I’m from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I’m a freshman here at Clarke. My major is psychology/PT, and I’m a pitcher. I’m Courtney Ryder. I’m from good ole Dubuque, Iowa. I’m a senior here at Clarke. I’m a psych major, and I’m a catcher. Hi, my name is Wil Navarro. I’m from Miami, Florida. I’m a senior. I’m a philosophy major, and
I’m a catcher. My name is Kevin Hunley. I’m from
Glendale, Arizona. I’m a junior. My major is business management with a minor in sport management. And, I’m an outfielder and a pitcher. Foul ball. No, I’d say fair. I’m Connor Floyd. I’m from Ojai,
California. I’m a junior. I’m a sport management and philosophy major. And, I’m an outfielder. So, now that softball is done, it’s time we move the rubber back 17 feet. I’m Jeremy Foreman from Phoenix, Arizona. I’m a freshman. I’m a CIS major, and I’m a right-hand pitcher. I’m Morgan Lenderink. I’m
from Tinley Park, Illinois. I’m a freshman here at Clarke. I’m majoring in psych/PT, and I’m a utility player. My name is Bailey Engel. I’m from Naperville, Illinois. I’m a junior at Clarke, and my major is elementary education. And, I play the
outfield. Hi, my name is Ally Renforth. I’m from
Waterloo, Wisconsin. I’m a senior here at Clarke. I am an education major, And, I play pitcher and first base. Come on, Foreman. So, what do you guys think? Was it harder or easier than you originally thought? I thought it was a lot harder than I thought. I got humbled. Definitely had some confidence before, but I like it. Ladies, how about you? It was definitely hard. Yeah. I mean, it was just like getting your hands to the ball is a lot different than how we swing. So, you got us. So, did you guys have a good time overall? Would you say it was pretty fun? Tons of fun. Rematch next year? Yes. Rematch next week. Good game.

    Love the radar showing it's not the speed that makes the difference. Great lesson for both sets of players.

    Men are stronger than women which will mean men are better than women at sports that was unfair. (I don’t get why people say hitting a softball is hard).

    If you had them go twice through, the baseball players would have easily adjusted, softball players still wouldn’t have been able to hit the baseball pitches.

    as a baseballer and softballer i would say the hardest thing between the to is in baseball trying to see from a different release point and softball is to not dip back cause you may swing and miss more, but also the shorter distance

    if anything in this video shocks you then you don't understand the science of pitching at all. Do some research and actually watch a baseball game. pitching is all about getting batters to second guess themselves and be unbalanced. its all about having the exact same delivery speed but having big changes in ball speed

    For all of you people saying that 81 is slow, there are MLB pitchers that throw about an 85 fastball, it’s just that it has a lot of movement. Moving fastballs are hard to hit no matter how fast it is.

    The game isn't always decided on how good the pitchers are, guys. C'mon. You need a good catcher, outfield, and infield. Pitchers get all the glory.
    (most of the time. Not trying to pick on pitchers).

    All the people arguing about which is harder… Both are equal. Pitching is hard in softball, but in baseball batting is way harder. They are different so it’s hard to compare fielding… since the fields are bigger in baseball.
