The umpire does not have to call time when the ball is in the infield, BUT when the pitcher has it in the circle so the play is OFFICIALLY dead.

Why does a baseball infield have grass and softball infield have clay?

Clay or GrassJust a guess, but softball fields are usually owned or maintained by municipalities with small budgets. Clay requires less maintenance than the manicuring necessary for infield grass. Clay is just plain cheaper than grass.No, It's because in baseball the ball comes off the bat faster, so they have grass so they can slow it down. In, softball the ball doesn't come off the bat as fast so they don't need the grass to slow the ball down.

Is softball exciting?

Is a base runner out if he leaves first base after being called safe?

In both baseball and softball, a runner is allowed to touch first base and keep on running and then come back to first base. He stays in foul territory. Then he comes back. The umpire calls him safe as long as he gets to the base before the ball does. In both baseball and softball, he comes back to the base. In baseball, he can leave the base, in softball he can not. In softball, he must be on the base while the pitcher has the ball until the ball is almost over home plate. In baseball, he can start running at anytime. If he starts too soon, the catcher can signal him to throw the ball to the first baseman and if the ball gets there, the first baseman will tag him out. It is called a pick off.

I just got my ears pierced and the umpire for my softball games won't let me wear earring or tape them down and i can't take my earrings out so what do I do?

You have to keep them in for at least 6 weeks if you want them to heal, so if you are not able to wear them, you may just have to take them out. If you have to take them out for softball for long periods of time before that 6 weeks is up, they are going to close up anyways. I guess it all comes down to whatever you like better -- your earrings, or softball. or you can pur down your hair and tell him you took them out

What is the name of the river that the mud used to rub all baseballs comes from?

I believe it is the Delaware River. I seem to remember the term "Delaware mud." I saw a post which claimed the baseball mud comes from Baltimore, as the dirt there is 'extra fine'. Although many years ago, as a resident of the Philadelphia area I was told the apparently widely accepted story of how the mud comes from only one secret place in New Jersey, there may be some truth to the Baltimore story as I vividly recall the infield dirt at a funky softball field where we played bar league games, was the finest I had ever seen. The outfield was trash, but that infield was the best. I saw it, and it was major league quality, if not even better. check out for some more answers about baseball mud. I heard the Mississippi River. Mississippi mud.

What is the official called who oversees the game of cricket from behind the wickets?

The person who you are thinking of would be the umpire standing at the non strikers end. They stand about one meter or so inline with the stumps as to give them the best view of the batsmen's stance in relation to the stumps and the keeper. This gives them the best possible chance of making the correct decision when it comes to an lbw or caught behind appeal. There are many other officials who oversee the game, with the other on field umpire being the square leg umpire (who, unsurprisingly, stands at square leg). The main umpire and the square leg umpire take turns in the relative positions. There are also the people who hold the official of positions of third and fourth umpire, but they are not on the field of play.

Does a baseball of softball have more kinetic energy when thrown at 35mph?

KE = 1/2mv2, where m is mass in kg, and vis velocity in m/s. Since both the baseball and the softball are thrown at the same velocity, the difference in KE comes down to mass. A baseball has a mass of 0.142kg - 0.149kg, and a softball has a mass of 0.177kg - 0.198kg. Therefore, since the softball has the greater mass, the softball would have more kinetic energy. The 2 after the v is supposed to be a superscript and is supposed to mean velocity squared.

What have people learned about a soft softball or a hardball softball?

A soft softball is made out of foam and never actually used in a real game of softball. If it is ever used, it is probably used in PE. or in a game that is just for fun. A hard softball is used in a real game of softball. A certified softball is a lime green sort of color and comes in a variety of sizes. The smallest size is 10 inches around, another is 11 inches around, and the biggest (and the one used for college softball and the Olympic team) is 12 inches around. Most of the time you would use the smaller sized softballs in a little league and a s the kids got older, the size of the ball gets bigger. The string that hold the ball together is red, just like a baseball. Softballs weigh about 175-178 grams. It's density is 15.5 to 16.5 per square inch.

Baseball and softballs pitchers have completely different deliveries when it comes to pitching. A baseball player throws the ball over hand, like the rest of his team.
