American Sign Language: "softball"

The sign for "softball" is based on the generic sign for BALL.



The specific meaning of this sign relies on context.  For example, suppose I ask you if you are going to the ________ tournament this Saturday?  Which concept would fit? Obviously there is no such thing as a "ball tournament" and you would understand that I was talking about a softball tournament.  If there is any doubt if you are signing softball, you can just do the sign "baseball" and then follow it up with the "softball" sign to show that you are talking about the version of baseball that uses the larger ball.
