Unlimited as long as the pinch runner is designated the pinch runner for the pitching position only and is a sub that does not enter the game.
You don't need to know how to play softball to run in the Olympics. If you're asking about being a pinch runner then you're out of luck because they no longer have softball in the Olympics.
Yes. Pinch runners can be used if a certain player is slow or if the batter is the catcher, and needs to get his/her gear on. The next time at bat the batter must stay in the lineup and bat when it is his/her turn. This is the same thing for a pinch batter.
A pinch runner is a substitute for a runner that is already on base. If player A is on second base and the manager decides to replace player A with player B, player B would be called a pinch runner.
Yes. The substitute runner is called the "pinch runner".
The Pinch Runner Memorandum was created in 1976.
Total bases is not relevant with pinch runners. Total bases is only relevant with batters and is a statistical category used to measure a baseball player's effectiveness at the plate. So the pinch runner would be credited with 0 total bases. However, the run scored would be credited to the pinch runner.
A designated runner can run for pitchers and catchers. It needs to be the same runner every time you put them into the game. You can also use a pinch runner, but this counts as a substitution so be careful when you do this that you are not going over the substitution limit.
The pitcher of record, i. e., the pitcher who was the player who last pitched, would get credit for the win. The pinch hitter or pinch runner is not considered the pitcher until he takes the mound, not when he replaces the pitcher as a pinch hitter or pinch runner. To further explain, even if the pinch hitter or pinch runner, or another pitcher enters the game to pitch after the end of the inning in which they pinch hit and/or pinch ran, and the losing team does not tie the game, or go ahead, that previous pitcher (the one that was pinch hit for, or pinch ran for) gets credit for the win.
