Softball question
    2017-August-3  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A: How was the press conference yesterday?

B: Someone asked a softball question that had been typed out by the secretary of the actress, who then spent 20 minutes talking about her devotion to charity work.

Note: A softball question is one that’s easy to deal with. Softball is a sport similar to baseball but is played on a smaller field and with a ball that is pitched underhand. The ball is also larger and softer than a baseball. Girls play softball and boys play baseball. The baseball, hard and heavy, is sometimes called hardball. While a softball question is an easy question, to “play hardball” with someone is to ask him/her hard questions or to make his/her life hard/uncomfortable.
