    Women can land F/A-18's on a carrier deck at night. There's a sport for you! Who cares whether they can beat the boys in softball.

    Fast pitch 11-inch balls have a higher compression than slow-pitch 11-inch balls and are used by boys' and girls' fast pitch teams when the players are 10 years old or younger. The 11-inch slow pitch ball is used by women's slow-pitch teams, women's senior teams, coed teams when a woman is up to bat, and all youth slow pitch teams, according to the ASA. Men do not use the 11-inch ball in regulation play, except when fielding for a female batter.

    12-Inch Softballs

    Most softball players are familiar with 12-inch softballs. A softball 12 inches in diameter is required for regulation play by men's fast pitch softball teams, including senior men's fast pitch teams and boys' youth fast pitch teams. It is also used by women's fast pitch softball teams and girls' youth fast pitch teams. The balls are also used in modified fast pitch games, but the ASA requires modified games to use 12-inch balls with modified compression..

    so.. most state's slow-pitch rules call for a women's 11 inch and men's 12 inch.....

    WNBA ball smaller.. Olympic volleyball nets lower... not saying women sports aren't valid.. just don't preach equality to me until you fight to have standardized balls, nets, and pushups..

    The question and subsequent answer has nothing to do with equality. Men and women are specifically designed to be different. Each creatively equipped with their own strengths and weaknesses. Sports teach life skills for use in all of one's endeavors, such as: how to win, how to lose, how to compete, how to set goals, how to achieve, how to be grateful, how to be humble .......... for both Men and Women.

    I have 2 boys and 1 girl with 5 years of age between each one. I have invested a long running agenda of having participated in their weekend sporting competitions. The investment has been worth it.

    I was unaware of the differences in the standards, but I'm not surprised by it. I'd agree with @ND_ponyexpress_ that if equality is demanded, equal standards need be met. But that's entire leagues and divisions and what have you that need straightening out. My only argument is for those advanced female players that ARE able to meet the requirements and keep up with the men - they should be able to play in the league of their choice. They proved they can do it.

    I also agree with @tango

    I agree... such a shame the best WNBA players can't play with NBA players because the difference in the ball will mess up their shot. same with men trying to use a women's basketball... it is smaller and would fit into the hoop easier on a jumper but the weight would be off.
