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.
A tag play is when it is required to tag a base runner to get them out. A force play is when it is required to have possession of the ball and touch the base to get the base runner out. By definition, a force play is in effect when a base runner is 'forced' to run to the next base because of the ball being hit and another runner being 'forced' to run to the base that the runner currently occupies. If there is a runner on first base and the batter hits a ground ball to third base, the runner on first base is 'forced' to run to second base because the batter is running to first base. In this case, a force play is in effect at second base (and at first base because a batter is always 'forced' to run to first base after hitting a fair ball. A force play is always in effect at first base when a batter hits a fair ball.). If there is a runner only on second base and the batter hits a ball to first base, the runner at second is not 'forced' to run to third base because no one is 'forced' to run to second base. In this case, a tag play is in effect at third base if the runner at second attempts to advance.
The infield positions in softball are the same as in Baseball.... pitcher, catcher, 1st, 2nd, 3rd base and shortstop. One difference in their positioning in comparison to baseball is that the 3rd base player and often the 1st base player, play in front of the base, closer to home plate. This is due to the greater amount of bunting and slap hitting in softball.
As a softball player myself, my friend plays first. But, leftys can really play any position. first is most common.
they are in the infield and in the outfield
in softball no one really controls the infield. you just have one person who is a leader. most of of the time it is the pitcher.
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.
Most softball bases today are made out of rubber. They do have a metal bottom that allows the base to stay where it is supposed to be. There are throw-down bases that are made out of foam and can be thrown down anywhere.
Middle infield. Shortstop or 2nd base.
i did your mom last night
softball players are girls, there are nine postions! depends on your position to tell what you do? then offence hits three strikes your out! four balls you get first base and can steal second if your smart and do it right IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT SOFTBALL PLAYERS DO THEN YOUR WEIRD. NOT SMART!!!!!! okay then, BYE!!!
The pitcher and catcher are those directly involved with the batter and pitching. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd basemans and the shortstop all play on the infield. The right, center and left fielders all play in the outfield.
softball is like baseball. it uses a bigger ball, metal bat, and the infield is made out of dirt not grass. there r other small differences too
You play softball in the spring and in the summer!
