The game of softball is similar to baseball except the diamond is shorter, the field itself is smaller, there are only seven innings and the pitcher throws the ball underhand to the batter. The ball used in softball is larger than that used in baseball but can rise, drop, curve and change speed during the pitch.


Softball competition of the 2021 MIG will consist of both male and female teams in two age groups.

For specific information regarding the rules and regulations that will be followed for the 2021 MIG, please refer to World Baseball Softball Confederation Softball Division Rulebook and the Sport Technical Package.
