A strike in softball is when a pitcher pitches a softball to the batter [located in the batter box in front of the catcher] and the batter misses. When it is a strike, it is thrown in a particular area from the batter's armpits to the bottom of their knees.
By striking out.
There are quite a few ways to score from 3rd base in softball: * You can steal * RBI * If the bases are loaded you can get walked in * If the bases are loaded the batter can get hit by pitch * If you are in 12u or about you can perform a delay steal
The batter watches a strike go by and doesn't swing the bat. A batter swings at a strike and misses. A batter swings at a ball and misses. A batter could also attempt to bunt on the third strike, bunting it foul would lead to the batter being called out.
The Batter can get to base: 1) with a good hit from a swing 2) when the pitcher pitches 4 balls 3) when the batter is hit by a pitched ball
It is a term to identify the next batter in the line up after the current batter.
yes, math is used in softball in many ways.
A batter can get a hit.A batter can walk.A batter can get hit by a pitch.A batter can run out a drop third strike and make it safely.A batter can reach first base on an error.A batter can reach first base because of a fielder's choice to make a play elsewhere.
A single in softball is when the batter hits the ball and she gets to first base. A double would be her getting to second. A triple is getting to third. And a home run is getting around all four bases and coming home.
They can strike out, hit the ball and it be caught, or hit the ball and either be tagged (with the ball) or a player gets to the base before them (with the ball).
The distance between the pitcher and the batter should be around 30 feet.
Lead off batter or the first batter to start off the teams turn at bat.
There are many ways that a batter can get out. * They can get a strike out. (The ball is thrown in the strike zone and the batter doesn't hit it 3 times) * They can get an out at first. (The batter hits the ball somewhere in the field and the fielder throws the ball to first before the batter lands her foot on the bag making a force out) * Be called out by umpire for leaving bag too early for a lead off.(If the batter gets a head start for the next bag they are going to before the ball leaves the pitchers hand then the batter is called out by the umpire)
A runner doesn't get a strike, a batter does.
In softball yes.. if first base is not occupied.... but it depends on baseball and softball and what leval you play at
If it hit the batter the batter gets first and it's scored as a hit by pitch.
It provides better visibility for the batter.
yes. a base on balls occurs when a batter receives but does not swing at four pitches outside of the strike zone in one at bat
no the softball is much bigger and different. you use your index, middle, ring, and pinky(for support) and your thumb to pitch. softball and baseball has the nsame pitches, but different ways to do it. trust me I'm a softball player :) and a pitcher:) and a hitting slugger:)
