THE RULES OF FASTBALL 45 

FASTBALL 45 is innovative and dynamic! An exciting new product with modifications to provide a higher paced and intense version of softball for both male and females.

The concept is designed to enhance the best parts of the game with higher frequency. To achieve this state of play traditional rules have been broken and radicalised to; increase the amount of ball in play, increase double plays, scoring opportunities and the points system itself.

Having analysed game data and reviewing feedback from last season’s FASTBALL 45 Auckland club series further tweaks have were made to the rules.
