Usually this happens when the runner is sliding in, or has just slid into the bag. It is a measure in case the runner comes off the bag while getting up, or simply a "why not, you never know" kind of deal where they tag just to be sure.
Any time a runner is not forced to advance to the next base, the defensiver player must tag the runner. If a runner is attempting to steal 2nd, either the 2nd baseman or the shortstop must tag the runner.
two men on base, runners in scoring position second and first, second and third and especially on the corners third and first base
Offense in softball is when you're hitting the ball (because you are scoring). There aren't necessarily positions, but there are names to refer to where you are in the lineup. On defense there are pitchers, catchers, first basemen, second basemen, shortstops, third basemen, left fielders, center fielders, and right fielders.
Nope. It's a stolen base.
No hit it is a fielders choice
it means that all the runners move up a base, like runner on first move to second and the runner on second move up to third etc.
If the runner was thrown out at first then it is a sacrifice. Fielders choice is when you couldve easily been thrown out at first but the baseman throws it to a different base to try to get someone else out.CorrectionThis would be neither, the 1st part of the answer above is incorrect, the later part is correct. It really depends on how the play unfolds. If you hit it to 2nd basemen and you are thrown out at first, then it is just scored a 4-3 groundout -- if the player fields the ball at 2nd and throws the ball anywhere other then 1st to get the batter out, then it would be a "Fielders Choice" -- there is no instance in which this would be a sacrifice if you swing the bat and the ball goes to the 2nd basemen (if this was a bunt fielded by the 2nd basemen... it would be a sacrifice) -------tigersy2k3
False.An infield fly situation exists when A) there are less than two outs, and B) there are runners on first and second or runners on first, second, and third.
No. A sacrifice is when the batter turns around to bunt and lets everyone on the defense know what they are going to do. The batter is 'sacrificing' (allowing the defense to get him/her out) so the runners can advance one base.
When there are runners on first and second or first, second, and third with less than two outs.
9 players, pitcher, catcher, first, second third basemen, shortstop, right left and center fielders.
well a runner up is in second place so any team that is in second place is a runner up team
