If someone gets to the base with the ball before you, or you get tagged by the ball.
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.
They can strike out, hit the ball and it be caught, or hit the ball and either be tagged (with the ball) or a player gets to the base before them (with the ball).
Base on ball is also known as a walk. This occurs when the pitcher throws 4 balls to a batter. In this situation the batter gets to automatically advance to first base
Some of the violations in softball is when pitch the ball your back foot has to stay on the ground. If a batter gets hit by a ball its called a dead ball and they get a free base. If a batter hits the catcher with the bat then the player gets a free base because they call that interference. Some umpires dont alow the catcher to talk to the batter either. If u have any more questions just ask.
To get someone out in softball the pitcher can strike them out. They can hit a pop-fly that is caught. The ball can beat the runner to first base by a defensive player tagging that base before the runner gets there. If the runner runs into a defensive player who is making the initial play on the ball, the runner is out. The runner could be tagged out before they touch the base.
well when someone hits the ball and gets on base... you will eventually make it around to third base (hopefully if you dont get out) then when u get a chance you run and touch home plate
There are a lot of rules to softball but you said a few so I will name some of them. ONE:If there is a throw down to second base then the second basemen has to tag the runner and not simply touch the bag with her foot . TWO:If the ball is hit into a pop fyly ball and if the ball is caught and if there is a runner that ran to the next base then the runner has to tag back up on the bag that they came from before they can go to the next base. THREE:If the batter is batting in the box and the catcher is in the way of the batter and interfears with the hit then the batter gets to go to first base. There you go. Three rules about softball.
In most cases this is called a ball. If the batter swings at the ball and misses, however, the pitch is called a strike. If the player swings and gets on base, the ball is obviously not called anything.
Sacrifice. It's usually used for a Sacrifice Bunt, which is when the hitter bunts a ball and gets out on purpose in order to move the runner already on base.
if nobody gets on base or noone hits off the pitcher
A single in softball is when the batter hits the ball and she gets to first base. A double would be her getting to second. A triple is getting to third. And a home run is getting around all four bases and coming home.
