Stealing is a term used in both Baseball and softball which is when a runner on 1st, 2nd, or 3rd base leaves their base right after a pitch to try to get to the next base when the ball is not hit: either foul or fair.
in younger ages it is not alloud, but when you get in to 4th or 5th grade you can.
When the runner is not required to run to a base she/he must be tagged in order to be out. (like when stealing)
I play softball because it builds character. Also, theres more to do in softball like batting, stealing, pitching catching, and infield/outfield than soccer or basketball. Its fun too, and it also builds endurance. Soccer and basketball can be cool but i prefer softball.
If you are talking about stealing, then you can only steal when the pitcher releases the ball otherwise you would be out.
It's called advancing on errors.
In fast pitch, a runner can attempt to steal as soon as the ball has left the pitcher's hand.
if your on a base and the ball leaves the pitchers hands you can run to the next base. that's called stealing the base
There are several skills in softball....The general ones are catching and throwing, fielding, batting, base runnning....the specialized one is pitching. Under the general skills there are skills you have to learn as well like bunting, stealing...etc
it is called "stealing" when the ball is first released from the pichers hand the runner can take off running and slide into whatever base she is going to.
In softball, points are referred to as runs. To get a run, a batter must successfully make it the whole way around the bases back to home plate. This can be accomplished by hitting a homerun, stealing bases, or having other batters hit the ball while you are on a base.
They are the same thing!! "Why softball is better than softball?"
