As a softball player myself, my friend plays first. But, leftys can really play any position. first is most common.
This is a myth that lefthanders don't play catcher, they do! It's just not very common.
Well for example: If a runner is on first and second, and the batter hits the ball, the force play is at third base because the lead runner is forced to run to third due to the runners behind him/her.
The umpire does not have to call time when the ball is in the infield, BUT when the pitcher has it in the circle so the play is OFFICIALLY dead.
UT = Utility Player or someone who can play multiple positions, such as in the infield or outfield
A player who is not a starter that can play several different defensive positions.
you can either play first second third base or shortstop.
