    No, because the player fielding the ball doesn't get the same special consideration. Duh!

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.....

    Me thinks... no.

    I have never seen a softball that had an 11 or 12 inch diameter. Kickballs yes, softballs no.

    possibly you were looking for "circumference"

    My accommodation of your incompetence does not make you right.

    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.

    As a kid we played corkball. Used a cork ball and a broomstick. If you could hit the cork you could hit anything.

    I learned from a man who played ball with Hank Aaron.

I teach my Daughters that it is great to strive to do whatever you want to do and to have goals, but that we will find our limitations. My how certain I was as a lad that I would be playing shortstop for the MN Twins.

    This stood out to me to illustrate their point.

    We will see how long before transgender is allowed in and we see women's world records shattered to never be beaten by any thing but another tranny. Or the quota system for team sports. Affirmative action 2.0.

    Imagine womens wrestling or boxing...with a tranny fighting a woman.

    Oh and by the way, there needs to be a constant check to make sure they don't get to go back and forth between tranny and normal mode and take advantage of both.

    We already see it in womens lacrosse in North Carolina...best female player is a male tranny.

    Good point ..... of course a "lady" can take steroids and other enhancements until she gets to a point that she has altered her God given physical make - up. Take for instance Cris Cyborg who presently fights in the MMA and wants a shot at UFC's Rousey. Take a look and judge for your self.
