If a right-handed batter bunts down the first base line is it considered a drag bunt?

A batter attempts a drag bunt when he begins running while bunting the ball. Righthanded batters can do it, but it is easier for lefthanded hitters because they are closer to first base.AnswerNo, that would not be a drag bunt. If a right hander ever did a slap bunt they would have to take off running out of the batters box towards 3rd and drag it down the 3rd base line. Your question is a push bunt as you are "pushing" the ball away from you, rather then "dragging" it with you. The reason right handers don't "drag bunt" is because well 1 as mentioned above they would have to run towards 3rd if they did do it, but the main reason is because if they tried to run towards 1st as they are bunting, they would have to cross the path of the plate making it impossible to hit or bunt the ball. You will see right handers "walk the box" which is similar to what a left hander does on a drag bunt

Can you slap hit righty in softball?

It isn't illegal to, but there really wouldn't be any point of it because the whole point of slapping lefty is so that you can run to the base faster. Basically, slap hitting righty would be like bunting except the impact would probablly be greater when slap hitting and would probablly be easier for most people to dmake contact rather than bunt.

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.
