What happens if the ball is in the glove and in play when you take your glove off?

If you're still holding the glove you still have possession of the ball. You don't have to be wearing the glove. There was a play one time where the ball was hit to the pitcher and it got stuck in his glove, so he threw the whole glove to the first baseman. The batter was out because he still had control of the ball, even though it was still in somebody else's glove.

What is the ideal position in catching a fly ball in softball?

In softball the ideal position would be running from behind the point where the ball is going to land to get momentum to throw the ball. Your glove should be about chest high and off to your right hand side if you are a righty (off to you left if you are lefty). Your throwing hand should be near you glove so that you an catch the ball with two hands, quickly retrieve the ball from your glove, and throw to the necessary base to try to get another out.

Why can't a 14' softball glove be used for infeild?

The way you have this question you're asking about a glove that's 14 feet (14'). I assume you mean 14 inches (14") and you can use one in the infield. It's not a preferred size because you can lose the ball in the glove meaning it's harder to get the ball out of a larger glove. In the infield, specifically middle infield, you use your glove more to redirect the ball instead of catch and contain. A smaller glove allows you the ability to get a grip on the ball faster in order to throw the ball quickly.

If a player catches a fly ball and in attempting to throw it to hold a runner but drops the ball is this an error on the player and is the hitter awarded a hit?

If the fielder catches the ball and, during the motion of reaching into the glove to grab the ball to throw, the ball drops to the ground the batter is called out. As long as the fielder has complete control of the ball before attempting to throw, the umpire will call the batter out.

What happens when a fielder drops his glove to chase a batted ball?
