After the softball has crossed over that home plate.
You are allowed to take a lead off the base when the ball is out of the pitcher's hand.
No u can not lead off but as soon as the ball leaves the pitchers hand you can get off the base
The maximum speed in which a softball can come off the bat at in mph. (The bat's composition or structure is designed to limit the speed of the ball off the bat to 120mph)
i delayed steal is you do your normal lead off from whatever base you are on and then when the catcher throws the ball to the pitcher you take off to the next base
It is the first girl in the batting order
no. the only way to get out while base running is: if you get thrown out. if you get tagged out. or, if you lead off before the pitcher has released the ball.
runner is out
NoOnly after the pitched ball goes outside, "an imaginary circle"* that surrounds the pitching mound.*I know because I was called out for leaving the base too soon...
Yes you can get picked off if you're slow to get back to the base.
yes! when the pitcher releases the ball from her hand then the runner can come off the bag and either take a lead or steal the next base.
A 'lead off walk' is when the first batter (lead off) of an inning gets on base from a base on balls (walk).
if nobody gets on base or noone hits off the pitcher
Well in baseball men are able to "lead off" but once the pitcher has the ball in the circle the runner can't take their place off their base or they will be out.
In softball your best bunter usually bats second. This is because the 2nd batter will often need to perform sacrifice bunts to move the lead-off hitter over a base. The 2nd batter is also usually fast.
Yes, the runner can take a lead off the base in baseball. That is, you can step off the base a little in order to get an advantage when you steal a base, or when the batter hits the ball and you run. Today, almost all runners in baseball take a lead off the bag when they are on base.
Lead off batter or the first batter to start off the teams turn at bat.
In fastpitch softball you can either do a straight steal or a delayed steal. A straight steal is when you take off running for the next base as soon as the pitcher releases the ball. A delayed steal is when you lead off the base like you would any other pitch, but a little farther. When the catch throws the ball back to the pitcher you take off running to the next base. This is successful because it confuses the defense, especially if they are not paying attention to you. A lot of times you can steal a base using a delayed steal without them even getting the chance to throw the ball before you get to the base.
No, because the field is smaller than a baseball field, they can't. Although they can steal
Slowpitch Softball is played using a high-arc pitching technique where the ball slowly falls into the strike-zone. Slowpitch speeds range from 25mph-35mph. Fastpitch Softball a windmill pitching technique is used that increases that speed of the pitch significantly and allows the pitcher to throw different kinds of pitches like drop, rise, curve, screw, and change. Fastpitch speed range from usually 50mph-65mph. The rules are basically the same, minus some variations in batting. In slow pitch if you foul off the third strike you are out. In fastpitch the strike is not called until you swing with no contact with the ball. Both require different equipment. EX:A fastpitch bat is different from a slowpitch bat. Slow Pitch...the coach pitches it and fast pitch....one of the teammates pitches it! :)
it is called "stealing" when the ball is first released from the pichers hand the runner can take off running and slide into whatever base she is going to.
In high school a lead off hitter should be about two and a half seconds while the average is low threes and high twos. A slower girl will be in the mid threes and above.
Position C is the catcher's position. They stay behind home plate. Usually they are the toughest and one of the players having a big knowledge of softball. They help lead the team by calling plays, picking base runners off, and by calling pitches for the pitcher to throw. The catcher is one of the most important people on the field.
89.999 feet, if the pitcher allows it.
