Best Answer

As soon as the ump calls the infield fly rule, the batter is out, but the runners can still advance at their own risk. To answer your question specifically, no, the fielder can't do that - that is the exact result that the infield fly rule was enacted to prevent!

Usually when they call the infield fly rule, the baserunners go back to the bases relatively quickly, because the play is over.

Have there been any changes to the baseball?

recently they have allowed umpires to use relplays for awkward homeruns. there was also one time when a rule was that a catch is not a catch until the player has full control of the ball. one player caught a ball and bobbled it all the way into the infield so the runers couldn't go because it had not been declared a catch yet.

It is where there is one-two runners aboard the bases (probably a runner at first base or two runners at first and second base) and a baseball player hits the ball within the infield and gets two of the runners out (depending on who was on what bases) and then there is two outs from that play!

What is in-field play in softball?

The infield positions in softball are the same as in baseball.... pitcher, catcher, 1st, 2nd, 3rd base and shortstop. One difference in their positioning in comparison to baseball is that the 3rd base player and often the 1st base player, play in front of the base, closer to home plate. This is due to the greater amount of bunting and slap hitting in softball.

What is the rover position in slow pitch softball?

Slow pitch softaball includes a 10th fielder. Usually this fielder is an additional center fielder, playing either left center or right center. The extra player may also play a rover position, usually just outside the infield. This allows three people to play more deeply to cover long fly balls, and still have a player to field the bloop hits that just leave the infield. This is similar in princible to a 'shift' in baseball, where players leave their normal positions to have a better chance of fielding a ball.

Can there be a triple play without the defense touching the ball?

A defensive player doesn't have to touch the ball for an Out to be recorded. The batter can strike out, a runner can be called Out on interference for being struck by a fair batted ball, and a runner can be called Out on appeal for missing a base, a batter can be declared out as a result of the Infield Fly Rule, etc. But in each of these cases, only one Out is recorded. I can't imagine any situation where it would be possible to record a triple play without a defensive player touching the ball.
