Slow Pitch Softball Rules
Slow pitch softball rules can vary significantly depending on the type of league or tournament you enter. On top of the various slowpitch softball associations like the ASA and NSA, there are also different rules by the USSSA and International Softball Federation.
Equipment is heavily controlled in all slowpitch softball leagues but there are also field differences including distance of the pitching mound and other similar changes. Slowpitch softball bats are heavily regulated in every association including length, weight, make, and modifications. Other rules govern actions on the field, safety gear, sportsmanship, and nearly anything else you can do in or around a softball field.
Bunting is illegal in slowpitch but not fastpitch and quick pitches being illegal are just a few regulations you'll find in some leagues but not others.
