==Cheer the fielder first and don't forget the first baseman == Even a routine grounder must be fielded and thrown to the first baseman before an out is recorded. There is really no need to cheer for the runner. More than a few routine ground balls are not fielded properly. Remember the famous Billy Buckner/Mookie Wilson play which many believe cost the Red Sox a World Series title. Position players mentioned in this question must function together - team work -for an out to occur.

Who covers first on a ball hit between first and second and fielded by the first baseman?

The pitcher normally, unless the second baseman can for some reason out leg him, which he really shouldn't be able to after trying to field the ground ball.


Is it a hit if the shortstop fields a ground ball and throws to first and the first baseman stretches and their foot comes off the bag and the runner beats the throw or is it an error?

This would be a hit assuming the ball was fielded and caught cleanly. If a play is so close that a 1st baseman has to stretch to make the out, then it will be a base hit if the runner is safe, even if he stretches off the base. Now if the ball was bobbled when fielded or the throw was off and pulled the 1st baseman off the bag because of a bad throw, then the fielder would be charged an error and no basehit given, if the batter would have been out on a properly fielded or thrown ball


What is Putout in baseball?

A putout is the term for getting a batter or runner out. An unassisted put out happens when only one fielder is involved, such as when an outfielder catches a fly ball, or the first baseman grabs a ground ball and touches the bag. An example of an assisted put out would be a ground ball that's fielded by an infielder who throws the ball to the first baseman.

When there is a runner on first and the batter hits a ground ball to the first baseman should the first baseman throw the ball to second?

If the first baseman has time they should tag the runner. If the runner is already too far they should throw it. If the first baseman is close to first, they should step on first and then throw the ball to the shortstop at second. Note: Tagging first base first takes away the force out at second and the runner must then be tagged. They are also allowed to return to first base.


Is a batter out if the first-baseman controls the ball on the ground before the batter reaches first?

no.Unless the first baseman is touching first base.


Should you send a baserunner from third base to home on a ground ball hit to the third baseman with less than two outs?

Generally, no. Absolutely not. If the baserunner break home on contact, he would be hosed at the plate by the third baseman. If he freezes, and waits for the third baseman to commit to throwing to first, the first baseman would have plenty of time to throw home and nail the runner.


How far should a 12 year old hit a softball?

It depends on how experienced you are. If you have a long experience and have the right form, you should be hitting fast, hard line drives into the outfield giving you at least a single and at most a triple. If you aren't experienced you are probably stuck hitting slow ground balls directly to the 3rd baseman, 2nd baseman, or 1st baseman. Or you just strike out!


What is a 3U in softball mean?

It means the first baseman, position 3, made an unassisted out. Example would be a ground ball to first baseman and they tagged the base for the out.


What is one and cover in the game of baseball?

One and cover is a practice activity where an infielder fields a ground ball, throws to first base which is considered base one in the base numbering system. The first baseman then throws to home plate where the catcher throws to the corresponding base of the fielder who just fielded the ball, who is covering his designated base.


If a ball is hit over third base and the third baseman reaches across the line and catches the ball is the batter out?

If the ball never touches the ground before the 3rd baseman catches the ball the batter is out.


Who throws the ball to the first baseman after and inning of play?

I believe you're talking about between innings when they throw around the practice balls. The first baseman throws grounders to the other infielders (2nd, SS, 3rd) and they scoop up the ground ball and throw it back to the first baseman.
