Best Answer

when someone hits the ball and it is caught, the runner(s) on base can "tag" the base they are on once it is caught and then run to the next base. If they tag 3rd base and run home to score it is the tag run.

How do you correctly tag a player out in softball?

To tag a player out in softball, you can either tag them directly with the ball, or with the ball in your glove. It will not be called an out if you tag them with the glove with the ball in the other hand. When tagging a player, it is easier to straddle the bag, so you can easily get the tag down and make the out. You might want to look up videos on youtube for a visual example
