A forced fun means that the bases are full and there is not room for another batter. This causes all the batters to be pushed to the next base.

What is a force run in softball?

FORCE RUN: A runner does not have to advance to the next base unless someone is behind him/her running to the base that the first runner is on. If there is a runner, and you are forced to advance to the next base, it is a forced run. For example, a batter hits the ball and safely runs to second base (making sure to step on 1st base). The next batter hits the ball but only runs to first base. The first runner therefore does not have to run to third base. Now there are two runners on bases and the next hit would make both runners run to the next base. When runners are forced to run, the fielders only have to throw the ball to the next base with somebody catching it. If a runner runs at will (that is not being forced to run), then the fielder must touch the player with ball and not just the base. If not a forced run, you have to tag the runner. If it is a forced run, you tag the base.

What does force third base mean in softball?

force to 3rd base means that when there are runners on 1st and 2nd and they are being forced to run to the next base ( in this case 2nd would be forced to 3rd) and all you have to do is step on the base, not having to tag the runner. this can also happen with a force to 2nd.
