How fast is a 70 mph softball pitch?
Because of the distance gap, a softball can reach home plate faster than a baseball. Depending on the pitchers and type of pitch thrown, the speed of a 70-mph softball fastball could have the same outcome as a low 90-mph baseball fastball because of how the ball catches speed from each distance.
