Baseball vs Softball at Clarke University

August 30, 2019 100 By Stanley Isaacs


The rules of the game are simple. The
baseball pitcher will face three softball batters, and the softball
pitcher will throw to three baseball hitters. The batter gets to see as many
pitches as it takes to either get a fair hit or a strikeout. Foul balls and walks
don’t count. The catcher will call the ball, and their ruling is final. For each
strike, the pitcher gets a point for their team, and for each hit, the batter
gets a point for their team. At the end of the game, the team with the most
points is the better sport. Good luck. Good luck. Let’s go, boys. Let’s go, ladies. What do you think the
most challenging part will be as a hitter? A different release point.
It’s going to be, I think, a lot harder to see the ball. I’m worried about the distance. The distance? Yeah, that’s true. The distance is closer. So, what do you think it’s going to take to strike the girls out? What are you going to do? I think we have to move around the zone with fastball, and a couple curve balls here and there. They won’t know what to do. I think, most importantly, to use the rise ball because I don’t think that they’ve had
experiences with the rise ball. Jenna, what do you typically pitch? I’m normally a drop ball
pitcher, but the rise ball I’m really feeling it today. Might see a little
change-up action, you never know. All right. Good to hear. Good to hear. Foreman, what kind of pitches are you gonna be throwing to these girls? What are they gonna see here? Fastball. Fastball. Oh, and another fastball. Shoving it. Another fastball. I’m Jenna Schwartzoff. I’m from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I’m a freshman here at Clarke. My major is psychology/PT, and I’m a pitcher. I’m Courtney Ryder. I’m from good ole Dubuque, Iowa. I’m a senior here at Clarke. I’m a psych major, and I’m a catcher. Hi, my name is Wil Navarro. I’m from Miami, Florida. I’m a senior.

Glendale, Arizona. I’m a junior. My major is business management with a minor in sport management. And, I’m an outfielder and a pitcher. Foul ball. No, I’d say fair. I’m Connor Floyd. I’m from Ojai,
California. I’m a junior. I’m a sport management and philosophy major. And, I’m an outfielder. So, now that softball is done, it’s time we move the rubber back 17 feet. I’m Jeremy Foreman from Phoenix, Arizona. I’m a freshman. I’m a CIS major, and I’m a right-hand pitcher. I’m Morgan Lenderink. I’m

Was it harder or easier than you originally thought? I thought it was a lot harder than I thought. I got humbled. Definitely had some confidence before, but I like it. Ladies, how about you? It was definitely hard. Yeah. I mean, it was just like getting your hands to the ball is a lot different than how we swing. So, you got us. So, did you guys have a good time overall? Would you say it was pretty fun? Tons of fun. Rematch next year? Yes. Rematch next week. Good game.
