Softball is distinct from other sports, so it’s no surprise that you should utilize unique methods when conditioning, whether you are in or out of season. Here at Softball Rampage, we did some research to get you started down the path to the perfect workout routine, because we want you to be at your very best next season.
- Cardio: Having a solid cardiovascular base is important, but because softball plays unfold so quickly, the experts say anaerobic readiness is actually more important. This is why interval training is especially beneficial—you will gain speed, endurance and explosive power.
- Strength: Softball requires you to use a large variety of movements and muscle groups, which is why circuit training is recommended. Choose 10 stations or exercises that all work different muscle groups, for a set amount of time or repetitions, and repeat the whole circuit at least 3 times for the best results. Circuit training will exhaust your muscles and get your heart rate pumping!
- Flexibility: The experts say flexibility training is of the utmost importance in softball to prevent injury, which can be all too common if cold muscles are quickly forced into action. Be sure to warm up before and cool down after all activities. Engage in active flexibility training, mixed with speed drills or circuits, as static stretching may actually decrease your performance.
- Balance: Often overlooked, working on your balance will improve coordination, prevent injury and help build core strength. Stability balls and balance boards will force your muscles to react to unstable conditions, and will take any player to the next level.
Of course each position has their own special considerations and you should tailor your plan accordingly, but hopefully we helped you get started.

For Immediate Release (Nashville) – The National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) League announced today a new partnership with Softball Rampage. The agreement makes Softball Rampage, located in Columbus, OH, the Official Online Retail Partner of National Pro Fastpitch.
Softball Rampage is an online retail outlet that stocks a complete line of softball bats, softball gloves, batting gloves, softball helmets, and other equipment to meet the needs of softball players of all ages.

This partnership with Softball Rampage allows us to roll all of that into one,” commented NPF Commissioner, Cheri Kempf. ”Since Softball Rampage is a retailer for many of our equipment supplier partners, this is a way to expose our athletes and teams as they relate to the use of particular supplier products. Along the way, we will increase overall awareness of the NPF.”
Softball Rampage, through a dedicated NPF page, will offer select NPF branded and licensed merchandise. In addition, Softball Rampage will have opportunities to sell merchandise on-site in NPF venues and at the Championship Series.
“Softball Rampage is thrilled with the opportunity to partner with National Pro Fastpitch, its teams and athletes,” stated Robert Drumm, Marketing Manager of Softball Rampage. “We are in the business of selling softball equipment and it makes sense that we would want to promote the professional level and the pro athletes. We hope to increase awareness of the NPF and to continue to be an equipment resource for tomorrow’s professionals.”
The NPF’s 10th Anniversary season kicks off on June 5th with the Chicago Bandits hosting the Akron Racers at The Ballpark at Rosemont and on June 9th the USSSA Pride will host opening day competition against the NY/NJ Comets in Kissimmee, FL.

Softball cheers are a time honored tradition in girls fastpitch softball. No matter where you’re located, passing a softball field will almost certainly invoke the chants and sounds of girls cheering for hitters, fielders, pitchers, and many other softball related actions.
A good cheer can rally a team from behind or help keep things loose when things aren’t going their way. We’ve found several of our favorite, funny softball cheers and have posted them here for your enjoyment.
We don’t play with barbie dolls,
We just play with bats and balls,
We dont wear no minny skirts,
We just wear pants and t-shirts,
We dont drink no lemonade,
We just drink our powerade,
So if I were you, I’d scoot your booty back,
But I’m not you so I’d stay where you’re at
Welcome to the cemetary (repeat twice),
Where the (Say Team Name) is gonna get buried (repeat twice),
6 feet wide and 7 feet under (repeat twice),
When we hit we hit like thunder (repeat twice),
When we run we run like lighting (repeat twice),
That’s what makes our team so frightening. (repeat twice)
Now that you’ve seen a couple of our favorite softball cheers, post your good, funny, cool, and new softball cheers below. While not as common in slow pitch softball, feel free to post your slowpitch softball cheers and chants as well.
