2020 Softball Season
Welcome to Softball. Softball is an exciting team sport in Special Olympics played between two teams. Every team aims in scoring as many runs possible, against the opponents by striking the ball with a bat. It is a direct descendant of baseball although there are some key differences: softballs are larger than baseballs, and the pitches are thrown underhand rather than overhand.
As softball is a TEAM SPORT, be aware that once the teams are formed only those players who plan to participate in the scheduled tournaments will be able to participate in the softball program. This allows the teams to practice together as a “team”, which is essential to competition. (We do this for all team sports now!) We look forward to another great season of practices and tournaments!
