A defensive inning (1/2 inning actually) is when the players are in position in the infield and outfield with the defensive pitcher throwing the ball to the catcher trying to not have the batter (offensive Player) hit the ball.
7 innings unless there is a mercy rule
softball has 7 innings in less a tie then they play more innings if one team is winning by a lot they have the mercy rule and they call the game
usually about 7 innings
The main of softball is to have the most number of runs at the end of the 7th innings
There could be 3-9 winnings . LOL i love softball Hamm:)
3 bases and 1 home plate.
There are anywhere from 5-7 innings
