FORCE RUN: A runner does not have to advance to the next base unless someone is behind him/her running to the base that the first runner is on. If there is a runner, and you are forced to advance to the next base, it is a forced run. For example, a batter hits the ball and safely runs to second base (making sure to step on 1st base). The next batter hits the ball but only runs to first base. The first runner therefore does not have to run to third base. Now there are two runners on bases and the next hit would make both runners run to the next base. When runners are forced to run, the fielders only have to throw the ball to the next base with somebody catching it. If a runner runs at will (that is not being forced to run), then the fielder must touch the player with ball and not just the base. If not a forced run, you have to tag the runner. If it is a forced run, you tag the base.
when someone hits the softball and and the person on first, second, and third base has to run tothe next base
In softball a run is when you score.
A forced fun means that the bases are full and there is not room for another batter. This causes all the batters to be pushed to the next base.
Actually, a force out in Softball is, for example: If runners are on first and second, the force out is at third because the runner is forced to run to third base due to the runners behind him/her.
You earn runs in softball, not 'points.' A run is earned when players successfully touch all three bases as well as home plate without being tagged or forced out.
No...you run counterclockwise.
soccer you just run and softball you run,steal,lead,slide,bat,and catch
Bat, Feild, and run!
no, but you have to run if there is two outs
You don't need to know how to play softball to run in the Olympics. If you're asking about being a pinch runner then you're out of luck because they no longer have softball in the Olympics.
No, unless there's is no force play involved. Meaning, you only tag if the runner is not forced to run to next base. But a runner is automatically out once tagged
There are 7 innings in softball there can be tie breakers, but there are run rules as well.
in most towns softball is run by the recreational leaugue
A run in softball is when a base runner makes it safely around the bases and touches home plate. The team the runner is for is then given a point, also known as a run.
A forced run is when the person must run because there is another runner coming to the base. You cannot have two people on a base so the runner must run. A not forced run is when there is no runner coming to the base so they could stay or the could run.
stick ur foot out and run
you can steal home plate, you can be on 3rd when it is bases loaded and you are forced to go to home plate or you can be on 3rd and run to home plate when the ball is hit
In softball every time someone crosses home plate and they are safe, you get one run.
When someone is on 3rd and runs home
Run Batted In =RBI
It's called a force. The runner is being forced to proceed to the next base by the batter/runner.
the fielder must tag the base runner
force to 3rd base means that when there are runners on 1st and 2nd and they are being forced to run to the next base ( in this case 2nd would be forced to 3rd) and all you have to do is step on the base, not having to tag the runner. this can also happen with a force to 2nd.
