    There's some missing information in that. For instance, a softball is 33% bigger as it appears to the batter making it easier to see than a baseball. You have to factor that in when considering the speed that it is coming at you.

    I think one of the benefits that baseball has is that there is less disparity among the talent on the field than there is with softball.

    Go GATORS!

    You also cant have one pitcher throw 40 games a season. One super recruit pitcher can transform a team in softball. Not baseball.

    If baseball wasn't so damn slow, it would be much more appealing. (For me) Still like it, just prefer softball.

    All the scientific evidence I needed was watching Stacey Neslon!

    With her, the verdict was in as soon as one laid eyes on her.

    I refrained from a much more, ah "colorful" joke where the punch line is Stacey impatiently asking her boyfriend "Is 'the verdict' IN YET?!"

    Softball rocks! Funny that wingtee had to express his distaste. I am pretty sure I had this conversation with him a couple of years ago. A lot of times you get the argument that it is an inferior game because a dominant pitcher can lead you to a championship because she is able to pitch every game.

    I guess Football isn't a good game either then, cuz a dominant QB can play in every game and lead his team to a championship.

    I get it, this argument is in contrast to baseball, but still I find it weak. Look at the number of dominant pitchers in the college game right now, there are lots of them on a lot of different teams. A good hitting team can overcome a dominant pitcher, as the Gators did to Sara Nevins of USF. They destroyed her 11-1 one day and that shellacking certainly helped to get her rattled in the next game: she walked several of the home run threats (Haeger intentionally) producing 2 runs.
