Where you stand at to hit, is called home plate. The first base you run to is called 1st base. The next base is 2nd base. And the one after that is 3rd.
you can steal home plate, you can be on 3rd when it is bases loaded and you are forced to go to home plate or you can be on 3rd and run to home plate when the ball is hit
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.
The Base path is 60 ft. from the back of home plate to the front of 1st base, & the same from base to base, back home from 3rd. From the back of home plate to 2nd base is 84'10". The same from 1st to 3rd. There should be a minimum of 180' to the closest fence with a maximum of 200'. An 8' radius should be around the pitching rubber which is positioned at 40' from the front of home plate.
In terms of running the bases, it is 180 feet or 60 feet straight from one to another.
There are a total of 9 positions for softball. You have your catcher who is behing home plate, the pitcher, 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base, shortstop ; who is in between 2nd and 3rd, then you have right field ; behind first base, center field ; behind 2nd base and left field behind 3rd base. Hope that helped :)
when theres a base runner on a base.. the batter hits the softball and trys to get to a base while the base runner at 3rd or 2nd run home and get a point
there are 4 on a baseball field. 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base, and home plate
Anything not inside the 1st and 3rd baselines and anything that hits home plate.
4 - Home Plate, 1st Base, 2nd Base, and 3rd Base.
The most important position in softball is 1st base and pitcher
