Abstract:
The aim of the study was to investigate the significant differences of selected physical fitness variables of School national level baseball & softball boys & girls. A group of 64 sportspersons (32 baseball and 32 softball) players of age group 11-14 years were selected for this study.. It was hypothesized that there may be significant differences with regard to selected physical fitness variables among school national level baseball and softball players. The 50- yard dash test (AAPHER 1976) was used to measure, “ speed”, shuttle run test (AAPHER 1976) was used to measure, “ agility”, standing broad jump test (AAPHER 1976) was used to measure, “muscular power”, and softball throw for distance test (Disch et al. 1977) was used to measure, “muscular strength”.. In order to analyze the data t-test was used..The level of p≤0.01 and 0.05 was considered significant. It revealed that baseball & softball boys had significantly higher muscular strength, agility, power, speed (p<0.01 & 0.05) than baseball & softball girls.
