  • Goodbye ASA, hello USA Softball

    Goodbye ASA, hello USA Softball

    With the softball season in full swing, some things never change. Practices move outside, games inevitably get rained out and softball diamonds across the state are filled with cheering fans, competitive games, and hamburgers on the grill. This year however, one thing is different. No, we haven't found a way to stop the rain from falling or the wind from blowing in Tooele. So what's the big change? As of January 1, 2017, ASA softball has been renamed/rebranded to USA Softball.

    Why the rebrand?

    ASA/USA President Warren Jones explains: "This is an exciting time for ASA/USA Softball as the rebrand to USA Softball reflects our vision for the growth of the sport. For over 80 years, ASA/USA Softball has been the driving force behind the sport of softball, and this new logo truly embodies that character and legacy."

    So what does this mean for you? There are new websites (local and national) to register teams, sign up for events, and get info on USA Soft...

    Softball Definitions



    What Is Softball? To put it in a nut shell, its a game resembling baseball that is played on a smaller diamond, with a larger, different colored ball, and is pitched underhand. It is popular as an amateur sport. In US high schools, club teams and colleges women play fastpitch. Underhand Slow pitch is popular for everyone. Softball has a set number of innings, usually seven. An inning is one series of both teams playing offense and defense. At the end of the seven innings the team with the highest score wins.

    Field Dimensions

    Softball Field Dimensions

    The softball diamond is closely related to the baseball diamond, which is one of the oldest and most complex pieces of geometric symmetry in all of sports. Of course, not every field is constructed exactly the same. Fields all across the world differ in terms of distances of baselines, outfield fences, and the pitching rubber.

    In the official rules of the International Softball Federation, the maximum outfield distance is stated to be 250 feet. Interestingly, this maximum is shared by both men and women. The variations in the distances are purely team-specific. While men’s fields tend to be deeper, youth leagues and collegiate teams often have smaller outfields. These dimensions can also vary depending on the league.

    The following are all taken from the official International Softball Federation rules, but apply universally to nearly every full-sized field in the world. Home Plate Area
