First of all, I'm assuming you are referring to fast pitch softball. the rule is that the batter is automatically out with a third strike ball is not caught by the catcher AND when first base is occupied AND there are less than two outs. The runners are not forced to advance but they can run at their own risk. If they do choose to run, a tag is required since this is not a force play. If the catcher drops the third strike, the batter can run to first base. But, the catcher can throw to first and get them out.
This rule does not apply if there is a runner on first already, the batter just gets out.
Yes they can.
A pitcher can get credited with 4 strike outs in one inning by the drop 3rd strike rule as long as the runner makes it to 1st base
If the ball stays in fair territory, then everything is like a normal bunt. But if the ball is bunted into foul territory on a third strike, then the batter is automatically out.
If you are talking about baseball/softball, then no, on the 3rd strike called by the umpire, the player/batter is out.
Anytime the ball hits the dirt on a 3rd strike it is considered a "dropped 3rd strike", even if it is executed as the pitcher and catcher wanted (ie. curveball in the dirt). On a dropped 3rd strike, the batter can try and advance by running to 1st base, as with any runner, the defensive team will need to tag the batter out or throw to 1st base. If the runner walks to the dugout, the umpire can call him outon his disgression. The dropped 3rd strike rule does not apply if there is a runner on 1st base with less then 2 outs. If there are 2 outs, all runners required to run would be forced to advance and be safe for this rule to apply
I doubt there is a rule requiring a specific drop. Most players at that age would be using -10 or -12.
No, If first base is open you are allowed to try to run to first on a missed 3rd strike but if it is occupied then you will immediately be called out unless there are two outs. If there are two outs the uncaught third strike rule does not apply.
the scoring in softball is done if a player touches 1st 2nd 3rd and home it is a point
The most important position in softball is 1st base and pitcher
When someone is on 3rd and runs home
its marks every 3rd strike out
Infinite - 3rd Strike
The batter would be out. The same rule applies as if it is a drop 3rd strike. The first baseman can claim the orange bag to give the catcher a clear throwing lane to the bag. The first baseman is claiming the orange bag as the safest bag to make the play on.
It is a fly out. According to baseball rule 10.15 (a) (4) The pitcher is credited with a strikeout on a 3rd-strike foul bunt, unless "(4)... unless such bunt on third strike results in a foul fly caught by any fielder, in which case the official scorer shall not score a strikeout and shall credit the fielder who catches such foul fly with a putout."
I presume you mean "dropped" ball rule. The rule that a batter can attempt to advance to first base after a dropped third strike was part of the "New York Rules," written in 1845. These rules eventually evolved into what we now know as baseball. The justification, flimsy as it may sound, was (and remains) that every "out" should involve SOME fielding capability, not just the ability of the pitcher. If that sounds silly to you, then it's 167 years too late to complain.
When there is a dropped 3rd strike
the spot between 3rd base and 2nd base
If the Out at 1B is the 2nd Out, the the run would score. If the Out at 1B is the 3rd Out, the run would not score, because it's a force play, and if the 3rd Out is on a force play, no runs score.
The infield positions in softball are the same as in baseball.... pitcher, catcher, 1st, 2nd, 3rd base and shortstop. One difference in their positioning in comparison to baseball is that the 3rd base player and often the 1st base player, play in front of the base, closer to home plate. This is due to the greater amount of bunting and slap hitting in softball.
An infield in softball is the dirt part of the field. It is where the pitcher, catcher, 1st baseman, 2nd baseman, 3rd baseman, and shortstop play. The infield in softball is the same as the infield in baseball, except a softball infield is typically all dirt, while a baseball infield is all grass except for the base paths.
