People say baseball is America's pastime, but there's most definitely something to be said for softball as well. In both the fastpitch and slowpitch forms, softball has captured the hearts of many. Whether you're an elite athlete facing off against a pitcher hurling the ball 70 mph or you're taking part in a weekly league game with your coworkers, all kinds of people can (and do) enjoy softball. The thwap of that big, yellow ball when it hits your mitt just right is one of the best sounds in the world. Second only to the crack of the bat. Ah, now that's the real soundtrack of summer.
Which brings us to the all-important question: what's your position? Are you all about the lush green grass of the outfield? Or is the dusty infield more your style? Do you make your home between second and third base? Or do you feel your best behind home plate? We know you hit loads of home runs, but because they say defense wins championships, we're taking a closer look at where you played in the field. Step up to the plate, and take our quiz to see if we can guess your softball position. So, what are you waiting for? Let's play ball!
