This is the sport i am currently fully concentrated on, trying to be as good in it as possible

it is "little brother" of baseball, but IT IS NOT "baseball for women"...men are playing it too and are capable to throw the yellow ball fast and fire it long way too

the main differences to baseball are - smaller field (both inner and outer), no raised hill for pitcher, no grass in infield, bigger ball, different bats made from alloy, never from wood, different pitching style, runners may not advance from base while pitcher holding the ball

is there anyone who knows (or even plays) this great sport?

Just fast googling it, it looks like baseball (as in picture), ... so when you get any victory game, come to notice : )

Yea, its kinda like baseball (basically - smaller field, bigger ball, pitching by rotating the hand from front to back, no pickoffs + about ton of minor changes)..in US practically only girls play it (men compete in a variant called "slowpitch"), in Europe are both men and women leagues, it is also played in Asia (China, Japan), New Zealand, South America (Venezuela, Argentina), even some African teams are there

i prefer it over baseball, because it is faster and more intense...on the other hand its more accessible to newbies, at least here...

and Czech republic is the best country in Europe when talking about mens softball (practically only Danes and Dutch are any competition atm) and around 5th in womens
