Baseball and Softball
What is Baseball and Softball?
Well…they’re two different sports! But they share a lot in common: they’re fun, social, fast-paced and have indoor and outdoor versions. They both involve a batter hitting a ball (in softball, the ball is larger) that is pitched (thrown) towards them – batting team's score points for running around bases, while fielding teams get players out by beating them to the base with the ball. Best of all, it’s a lot simpler to play than to describe!
What are the benefits?

What will I need?
Most clubs and sessions will provide you with all the equipment you need, so it’s just a case of comfortable clothes and the right shoes. Check whether you’re indoors or outdoors first.
