The above video gives tips on how to pitch if you're interested in the details.
The softball diamond is a little smaller than a regulation baseball diamond. There's the same number of players and positions, so the main difference is how the pitchers address the plate. Underhand for softball and almost any other way for baseball. Some pitchers in baseball go sidearm, although overhand is the most common. There's the same 3 outs, although it's usually only 7 innings instead of 9 innings like baseball.
This year the Japan team beat the USA women's team for the gold medal match. It was really close, with some amazing plays. At one point a member of team USA was able to keep a home run ball from going over the wall by making an outstanding catch. Canada was able to get the bronze medal in a hard fought game with Mexico. It was a really close one, 3-2 was the final score.
There won't be softball or baseball at the next summer Olympics in Paris. I'm not sure if it will return in 2028, maybe since I think that's in L.A. again?

I had to check with DH on this one to make sure the French was correct. I've seen other patterns where it isn't. Bonne fête Bonne fêtes
