What is the difference between baseball and soccer cleats/spikes?

I played both softball and soccer but am drawing a blank.
Is there a huge difference in baseball and soccer cleats?
Are soccer cleats lighter?

  • @kitkabob is totally right! Look what I found on WikiAnswers [http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_are_the_differences_between_soccer_cleats_and_baseball_cleats] : the difference of them is that the softball cleat has a pointy thing at the bottom of the toe.....and soccer cleat's don't if you did have softball cleats on while playing soccer you might pop the ball..if you have on soccer cleats on while playing softball you might slip or not get a grab in the dirt with them on there is a big difference. The 'pointy things' on the bottom of you cleats a called 'spikes'. Also, Softball does not actually count as real Baseball, because a guy moving ninety feet is considered an outfielder... It is true, though, that most sports that require cleats will have completely different styles of shoes. These will have different types of spikes (metal, rubber, etc.) and different levels of support for the ankle.
