A force is when there is an automatic out at the base if the ball is thrown there
The most important position in softball is 1st base and pitcher
force to 3rd base means that when there are runners on 1st and 2nd and they are being forced to run to the next base ( in this case 2nd would be forced to 3rd) and all you have to do is step on the base, not having to tag the runner. this can also happen with a force to 2nd.
Actually, a force out in Softball is, for example: If runners are on first and second, the force out is at third because the runner is forced to run to third base due to the runners behind him/her.
-Pitcher -Catcher -1st base -3rd base -2nd base -Shortstop
I believe, yes and no, in fast pitch travel softball you are aloud to dive into 1st
On a 60' square diamond it is 89' 10".
When there isn't a runner behind them forcing them to run. For example, if a runner is on 2nd base but there is no one on 1st base, the runner must be tagged on their way to 3rd in order to get them out. However, if there IS a runner on 1st, the 3rd baseman can simply touch the base because it is a force out.
89 feet 10 inches
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.
All the postitions on the softball field are: Pitcher, Catcher, 1st Base, 2nd Base, 3rd Base, Center Field, Right Field, and Left FieldMECrocks.
Its 120ft if youre running the bases.ANSWER84' 10" across the middle of infield.
If there is a person on base, but there is no force (base runners on base from 3rd, 2nd to 1st, or just 1st)
3rd base is 89 feet 10 inches from 1st base
Stealing is a term used in both baseball and softball which is when a runner on 1st, 2nd, or 3rd base leaves their base right after a pitch to try to get to the next base when the ball is not hit: either foul or fair.
The fastest is around a 2.5 home to 1st time
The only base that can be over run without fear of being tagged out in softball like in baseball is 1st base. But also of course you can over run home base.
Pitcher, Catcher, 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base or short stop
