Yes, if you are the batter.
It provides better visibility for the batter.
I believe so. I think Shane Victorino does it.
Yes they can no matter the pitch count.
if the batter swings and misses or if the pitch is between the chest and kness
If it hit the batter the batter gets first and it's scored as a hit by pitch.
In softball yes.. if first base is not occupied.... but it depends on baseball and softball and what leval you play at
Yes. The batter may bat from whichever side he/she chooses with whatever bat he/she chooses. However, once the pitcher is on the pitching rubber the batter may not switch sides nor bats until after that pitch.
You can move to the other side of the plate during an at bat IF you ask for time out from the umpire AND time out is granted.
In competitive mens slowpitch softball, a "sac fly" is an out. However, the batter still receives the RBI.
If the pitch count is at 2 strikes and 3 balls that is a "full count" meaning the next pitch is the last for that batter. (For all you critics; this is because in softball, if the third strike is fouled out of play the batter is out)
Personally i believe she should be facing straight at home plate to follow through with her pitch.
The slowest pitch in softball is the change-up. It is used to batter swing off-balanced. Off-balanced batters tend to hit more pop-fly's than balanced batters. Pop-flys are considered the easiest out in softball.
The rise ball is a very useful pitch in softball. A good rise ball begins looking like a strike so the batter will swing at it. However, by the time the ball reaches the batter, is it higher than it was when it first started out. The causes the batter to swing in miss since upward adjustments with a softball swing are very hard to make.
Softball Pitch is underarm hand movement
noWrong!! The batter may switch sides of the plate as long as the pitcher is not on the rubber prepared to pitch. He could switch several times during the at-bat.
it matters how old you are . i know if you are 12 you pitch 40 feet, and if your 14 you pitch at 43 feet .
Yes, a batter can change from one side of the plate to the either during his at-bat, but he cannot do it once the pitcher is ready to pitch. Rule 6.06(b) states: A batter is out for illegal action when stepping from one batter's box to the other while the pitcher is in position ready to pitch.
yes there is different types of softball. There is fast-pitch and there is slow-pitch softball.
The ball should never hit in the batter's box in any softball game. The coach may want to remove that pitcher if he or she continues to pitch like that.
If no one is on base then a ball is awarded to the batter. If a runner or runners are on base then they will be moved up one base and a ball is awarded to the batter.
