I can't quote or site it but I remember reading an article in a magazine (ESPN or SI) that stated a pitcher from the 70's was hurling it about 115-120 underhand. That's crazy fast. It may have even been the guy the other responder mentioned, but it was definitely over 104.

There is no "official" record for the fastest softball pitch. Here are some of the reputed records after a search of various archives:Guinness is supposed to have clocked a softball pitch at 68.9 miles per hour.National Pro Fastpitch (NPF), a women’s professional softball league, claims that pitches of "70+" MPH are common. There are many other references in various sources making the same 70+ miles per hour claim.The fastest softball pitch reportedly clocked at the Atlanta Olympics was 73.2 MPH.Eddie Feigner, a famous softball player and the founder of the "King and His Court" 4-man softball team is supposed to have been clocked at 104 miles per hour. In a game against Major Leaguers ballplayers, Eddie Feigner struck out, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Brooks Robinson Willie McCovey, Maurey Wills, and Harmon Killebrew all in a row.
