When a ball is hit into left field it is the shortstop's job to act as a cutoff man while the second baseman covers second base and when the ball is hit to right field it is the second baseman's job to act as a cutoff unless the play is at home then the outfielder will throw to the first baseman as a middle man while the shortstop covers second base. Now if the ball is hit to center field then it is the shortstop's job to cutoff unless again the play is at home then the first baseman is the cutoff.

In softball what is a 'ball'?

Insoftball u get a strike (when the batter hits at the ball but misses). There is also a foul ball (batter hits the ball but it goes out of the field of play). Then u get the call of "ball" this is when the pitcher pitches the ball and it goes lower than the knees and if the ball is higher than the shoulders basically it is when the ball is unplayable). After one batter gets four "balls" then they get a free walk to first base, if there is someone on first base then they also get to walk to second base, etc.

A fly ball heading to left field goes over third base fair but the winds take it foul in left field and lands foul in left field is it fair or foul?
