yes but not head first
Yes you can slide in softball, however, you cannot slide into first base. The only exception to that is if you make the turn to go to second base, but you end up not going, so in that case, you can do a retreat slide. Other than that, you can slide into any base; including home ; that you would like.
I believe, yes and no, in fast pitch travel softball you are aloud to dive into 1st
You can slide into first base in any baseball game, but people don't because most people that do usually break their legs or their a head on collision.
No, it's legal to go back head first.
Yes. You cannot slide head first while advancing but you can dive head first BACK to a 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.
Yes, you can slide into any base.
there are 4 bases in softball, homeplate, first base, second base, third base...
