You are allowed to take a lead off the base when the ball is out of the pitcher's hand.
After the softball has crossed over that home plate.
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
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.
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.
4 balls and take your base you've been walked.
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.
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.
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.
