Best Answer

The batter is out, if they hit a ball in the air and a defensive player catches the ball before it touches the ground, in fair or foul territory.

If a defensive player has the ball in control and touches a base before the runner, the runner is out.

If a defensive player has the ball in control and touches the runner with the ball in their hand or glove, the runner is out.

To get someone out in softball the pitcher can strike them out. They can hit a pop-fly that is caught.
