You can block any base as long as you have the ball, if you do not have the ball you can be called for interference and the runner can have the base.
A base runner can steal a base at any time while he is on base. The only reason they wouldn't give him the steal is if the ball was fouled or he was thrown out by the catcher.
No. After ball four is thrown to the batter it is a base on balls. The batter is entitled to first base, and any base runner forced ahead may advance. Even if the runner on first is attempting to steal on the pitch, he is awarded second base and cannot be thrown out. Of course the runner from first is award second base, but is only protected up to the base. If he overruns or overslides the second base because in his steal attempt he was not paying attention, he can be tagged out if he is off the bag.
yes because as long as the ball was taken the movement is still able to be played. also depending on what league of baseball you play.
Yes, if the fielder had full possession of the ball when he touched the base the runner is out.
they must go back,dead ball after hitting batter
Yes, the ball is still live.
That depends on whether a runner is forced to vacate a base when a ground ball is hit. If there is a runner on first base and a ground ball is hit, the runner is forced to run to second base because the batter is running to first base. If there is also a runner on second base, that runner is forced to run to third because the runner from first is running to second. If a runner is not forced to run, they do not have to. If there are runners on first base and third base and a ground ball is hit, the runner at first is forced to run to second because the batter is running to first. But the runner on third is not forced to run because no runner is running to third base from second base.
In any fastpitch softball if the pitcher is not on the mound the runner can steal, but the pitcher can always throw the ball 2 get them out.
Either the second basemen or the short stop in responsible for covering second when a runner is trying to steal.
Runner attempting a steal from first, or a runner caught returning to second base.
