There are several different ways to get to first base. One is if you hit the ball and make it safely to first without getting tagged or thrown out. Another way is being walked. This means the pitcher throws you 4 balls. In some leagues, if you strike out and the catcher drops the third strike, you can also run to first. This can only happen when there is no one on first base. The catcher can tag you or throw you out.
there are 4 bases in softball, homeplate, first base, second base, third base...
First base is the base you run to after you hit the ball.
when someone hits the softball and and the person on first, second, and third base has to run tothe next base
the most important position in softball is deffinatley first base.
after you hit the ball, you run to first base and you are a baserunner..
Go to first base.
Three. First base, second base and third base. Home plate is not a base.
In softball yes.. if first base is not occupied.... but it depends on baseball and softball and what leval you play at
if your running the bases it is 120 feet
yes but not head first
all of the bases are 60 feet
84 Feet 10 inches
It can be. A base hit is just when you hit the ball, and get on base without getting out.
I believe, yes and no, in fast pitch travel softball you are aloud to dive into 1st
An extended first based in softball is known as a double bag as well. It is an orange bag that is in foul territory. A runner that is running straight through first base is entitled to the orange base, leaving the first baseman the white base to make the play. This is just to prevent unnecessary collisions at first base, as a safety precaution. It is an optional addition to fields.
In both baseball and softball, a runner is allowed to touch first base and keep on running and then come back to first base. He stays in foul territory. Then he comes back. The umpire calls him safe as long as he gets to the base before the ball does. In both baseball and softball, he comes back to the base. In baseball, he can leave the base, in softball he can not. In softball, he must be on the base while the pitcher has the ball until the ball is almost over home plate. In baseball, he can start running at anytime. If he starts too soon, the catcher can signal him to throw the ball to the first baseman and if the ball gets there, the first baseman will tag him out. It is called a pick off.
