For ptiching it is underhand, all other throws that not involved with pitching are overhead just as a baseball would be thrown.

An overhand motion, lean into the throw, feet shoulder width apart, and aim for the target, wether it be the man or woman at the base or the cut off person when throwing from the outfield

When throwing a softball, your hand should be pointed towards the target you are throwing at. It is also important to get the body into a position in which you can get the most power from your throw.

The proper throwing technique is to grip the ball with your whole hand, hold the ball behind your head but level with your head, extend the arm and roll the ball off of your fingertips. Practice with a grapefruit or something that you have to hold in your whole hand.


Answer by  bowski (24)

In softball the proper throwing technoque varies. If you are a pitcher then the throwing technique is underhand. If you are playing a position other then pitcher then the technique is to throw overhand. In both cases the idea is to bring the ball back and throw it as hard as possible.
