Fast Pitch

Kristi Olsen and a contingent of York County tourism officials sailed Wednesday. Brian Fuller of York Parks & Rec reported that 147 teams from 16 states are here this week for the Girls Class B World Series of Fast Pitch Softball. They’re playing on fields across York, James City and Williamsburg. Top pitchers can throw as fast as 68 mph. While that may seem less threatening than the 90 mph found in Major League Baseball, he said the softball distance to the plate is only 43 feet vs. 90 feet 6 inches in the majors. That’s fast.
