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 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

In field hockey play is in the circle so is the umpire an attacker hits the ball it comes off the umpires foot and enters the goal what is given?

In this situation the goal SHOULD BE AWARDED. The umpire's body and equipment are part of the field of play, and if the ball strikes them, play continues regardless.
