About This Quiz

It's been a long time coming, but women's fastpitch softball is FINALLY headed back to the Olympics. The last time we saw our favorite softball players smacking home runs and stealing bases on sport's greatest stage was 2008. We are beyond pumped to cheer for Team USA's players in 2020 as they go for gold in Tokyo.

With the Olympics less than a year away now, it seems like the perfect time for a quiz to find out what legendary softball player you are. We're strolling through the halls of history to reveal which of the greatest athletes to ever play the game you are most like.

We want to know if you're a home run hitter or speed demon on the base paths. Do you dive for balls in the outfield grass, or is your style throwing out runners from your knees on the infield dirt? Are you the tried and tested leader or quiet and focused team player?

There's nothing "soft" about softball. The women who play this game at the highest level are incredible athletes, and their real stories of overcoming adversity are what legends are made of.

Take a few practice swings, then step into the batter's box and answer our questions. In far less time than it takes to play seven innings, we'll reveal what legendary softball player you are. 

If you're ready, let's play ball!
