How do you steal a base in fastpitch softball?

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.

Is there leadoffs in softball?

There are leadoffs, but they're not the same as for baseball. You may only take a lead once the pitcher releases the ball. If you leave the base at any time while the ball is in the pitcher's circle you must continue moving to the next base until the ball leaves the circle. Once the pitcher makes the decision to try to get the out you may attempt to return to the base you came from.
