Does a runner has to run after a bunt in a softball?

Yes unless it was a foul, when a batter bunts it's usually for a sacrifice run for a team member who is on third base. It's used as a distraction to make them throw to first to get the runner out and not at home.

Does the run count when a batter bunts and the runner on third scores before the first baseman tags the batter for the third out?

No, because the third out was made on the same play. It is no different than if the batter hits a ground ball to the shortstop or any other infielder and is thrown out at first base for the third out. However, if there are two outs and there is a runner on third and the batter hits a single into left field but is thrown out at second when attempting to turn the play into a double and the runner on third makes it home before the third out at second is recorded, the run does count. Hope that isn't too confusing.

Batter is out, the ball is dead when it hits the batter. Runner at third returns to third.

A play in which a runner on third base tries to score as the batter bunts the pitch?

Runner on third and batter bunts Pitcher throws home and runner is safe at home and first. how is this scored?

A line is drawn along the first baseline for the batter and a FC (Fielder's Choice) is assigned to them. In the same box, a 1-2 is written. A line is drawn from 3rd to home in the runners box and the box is filled in to show that the runner has scored.

Is it a sacrific if the batter bunts a ball with runners on first base and third base and is thrown out at first?


What is a suicide squeeze in baseball?

A squeeze is when there is when a sacrifice bunt is called for with a runner on third. The idea is that when the batter bunts the ball, he will be thrown out at first, allowing the runner on third base to score. In a suicide squeeze, the runner takes off from third as soon as the pitcher begins his delivery toward the plate. If the batter makes contact with the ball then the play will most likely be successful. The problem comes when the batter fails to make contact with the ball. If this happens the play is most likely going to be at home plate. This play normally works best with someone who you can count on to make contact with the ball no matter the pitch.

What happens to the batter when a suicide squeeze bunt hits the runner from third base in fair territory If it matters I should add that the batter never left the batter's box?

It does not matter what the batter did. If the runner from 3rd was in fair territory when the ball hit him -- the runner is out, batter is credited with a single and gets to go to 1st base

What is it called when a runner is on third tries to score when the batter bunted?

It is called a sqeeze play. It is a form of sacrifice bunting, but when the running is on third, it is exclusively known as a squeeze play. Also, when this happens the batter's sole porpose is to get the runner in and not to reach base himself.

What is a safety in baseball?

Is there is no such thing as a 'safety' in baseball. The only reference to 'safety' in baseball is the 'safety squeeze'. There are two types of 'squeeze' plays - a safety squeeze and a suicide squeeze. Generally, a squeeze play occurs with a runner on third with less than two outs and the batter bunts the ball. The idea is that if the runner on third can get a good enough jump as the pitcher is delivering the ball and batter bunts the ball on the ground and far enough away from home plate, the defense will not be able to throw out the runner at home and the offense essentially 'steals' a run. Now - for a 'suicide' squeeze the runner on third immediately sprints towards home as soon as the pitcher starts his windup (identical to trying to steal home). If the batter is able to lay down a bunt, this runner will likely score because of the jump that he was able to get. However, if the batter is unable to bunt the ball (he misses or pops up) then the runner at third will definitely be tagged out. For a safety squeeze, the runner at third does not start his sprint towards home until he sees the batter bunt the ball. This has the advantage of allowing the batter to miss or look at a pitch without creating a situation where the runner on third will definitely be out. However, it has the disadvantage of the runner getting a very slow start towards home and even if the batter bunts the ball well, it is still likely that he will be thrown out at home by a good defensive play. Of note, the 'safety' squeeze is rarely used in major league baseball because the poor jump by the runner at third combined with the talented defensives almost guarntee failure. However, in other leagues - high school, college - the safety squeeze is more common.

What happens if there is one out and a runner on first with the dropped third strike rule?

The drop third strike rule only applies when there is no runner on first base. In this case nothing would happen but the batter would be out.

Can a runner from third base score if the batter is tagged out for the third out?

If the batter is tagged out before he reaches first base it is still considered a force out and the runner cannot score, however if the batter crosses first base safely and then is tagged out, the run counts if the third base runner crosses home plate before the batter is tagged out.

Why would the batter bunt?

A bunt is typically designed to advance a base runner. It is most often employed when the infield is playing deep. As a bunt attempt increases the odds of making contact with the ball, bunts are often used by National League pitchers who aren't paid for their skill at the plate. A sacrifice bunt designed to advance a runner from first or second base is generally laid down in the area between the mound and first base - behind the runner. A bunt designed to advance a runner from third base is generally placed between the mound and third base. Bunts can also be attempted for a base hit. A "suicide squeeze" is one of the most exciting plays in baseball. It results when a runner on third base breaks for home on the pitch as the batter attempts a bunt. A bunt made with two strikes that rolls foul is a third strike and the batter is out. This differs from other foul balls.
