Scoring is accomplished by the batter running and touching a series of four markers on the ground called bases. Softball is a direct descendant of baseball, which is sometimes referred to as hardball to distinguish the two, but differs from it in several ways. This article assumes no knowledge of baseball.<br />

The sport's governing body, the International Softball Federation holds world championships, held every four years, in several categories.<br />
