The home run in softball is the same as in baseball. When the batter hits the ball over the outfield fence in fair territory it is a home run. It is also considered a home run if the batter hits the ball inside the fence and is able to run all the bases and back to home plate before being thrown out...
Jeez, first of all, you need to catch up on reading that rules book of yours! A strike is a pitch thrown by the pitcher and hits the catcher's glove so that the catcher doesn't have to move her/his glove at all. Or if the pitch is in the "strike zone", the umpire may also call it a strike.

Thanksgiving Day in 1887.
My catcher gear last year was Under Armour. Under Armour is the best catcher gear money can buy. All the other brands doesn't protect the chest as well. The Under Armour chest piece is broader on the shoulders and has more padding. I suggest the Under Armour catcher gear.
You've got plenty of bats since you're on a softball team. Use your imagination.

what age do you have to be to play pro softball
Softball is usually fun for those ages. But the girls must be willing to work hard and to cooperate.

When you slide you slide into second third or home never slide into first. you don't have to slide when it is a forced out either. To slide you run at full speed if you slow down you could injure your self and wont go far on the slide. you should slide about 7 feet from the base. When you start to...
you lead off only as far as you can with enough time to dive back to the base in the event the ball is caught. if the ball is caught you return to the base if it is dropped you run to third and possibly home. always be aware of your base coach when approaching third they should tell you to go home...

The batter or the runner? Either would have to be tagged to result in an out. The catcher (or any player) would have to have the ball and touch the runner from third. If you mean the batter is still in the batter's box and the ball rebounds and hits him then I would surmise that it is a judgment...
1. The actual balls used are much different. The softballs are larger.. 2. B: pitches overhand, S: pitches underhand. 3. B: can lead off the base at any time, S: can only leave the base on a hit of if the pitcher releases the ball. 4. The baseball fields are much larger.. 5. B: mostly males, S: only...
