In softball pitching the pitcher is only allowed one big step because the rule states that prior to the pitch both feet should be on the pitcher's plate and during the pitch one foot should be on the plate before ball is released. you can check the basics of pitching here: http://www.softballperformance.com/softball-pitching/coaching-softball-pitching.html
You are allowed to take a lead off the base when the ball is out of the pitcher's hand.
It matters if you take small steps or big steps
To be a decent softball pitcher it could take 3-4 years to pitch a softball. Fastpitch that is. The ball is bigger and weighs more than a baseball. The wind up is tricky. Most pitchers that I know have to practice their pitching around 3 to 4 days a week.
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
there are many. -pitchers pitch underhand -when you pitch, you cannot do more than two windups. -you can steal -you can take leads off the base but only once the pitcher has released the ball -you cannot duck down after the pitcher release the ball; causing the "strike" to become an "overhead ball"
To be successful, there are many steps you may need to take. The most important steps are to persevere and be determined.
it doesnt matter how long it takes you to become the next Jenny Finch, but it depends how long and hard you practice. -aLONdRa <333
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.
