I believe if either one is directly in the baseline, that is indeed interference (the runner is awarded the base).

Obstruction can only be called if the runner makes contact with one of the fielders. If he zig-zags around them without drawing contact then he can be called out for going out of the baseline.

In softball when are the fielders able to use a force out?

Hello. A force out can be used when the runner is 'forced' to move to the next base. For example, when there's a baserunner at first and the batter hits the ball, there are force outs at both first (where the batter must go) and second (since the batter is coming to first, it forces the baserunner to second). However, if the ball is caught, the baserunner may stay at first since the batter is out. If the baserunner is not 'forced' to move to the next base, a force out cannot be used. For example, when there's a baserunner at second, first is empty and the batter hits the ball, there is only a force out at first. Since the baserunner on second does not have to yield her base to a runner directly behind her, she must be tagged to make the out if she tries to take third. Even in a situation where a force out will work, a tag is also an out. So IMO if the runner is off base and you can tag her, do it, then look to see if there are other outs that could be made.


Is it a balk if on pick-off attempt at second base the pitcher throws to the shortstop in normal stationary position and not to the base?

If the pitcher throws directly from the rubber to the shortstop, it is a balk. However, if the pitcher first steps back off the rubber, he can throw anywhere.


Can a baserunner running to first turn left after passing the base and come directly back to first be tagged out?

Yes, anytime a runner turns towards 2nd he has "made an attempt to advance" and can be tagged out like any other baserunner. When running to first if you over run the base you will want to either turn to the right and go into foul territory to return to 1st base or turn directly around and go back to 1st base, in these instances, even if you are tagged you are NOT out. If you take even one step to the left towards 2nd, and you are tagged going back to 1st base you ARE out

A 'seeing eye dog' in baseball is a slowly hit ball that is hit perfectly - that makes it between the shortstop and the third baseman or the second baseman and the first baseman for a single. A ball hit with the same speed directly at a fielder is a routine out.

How far of a throw is it from shortstop to first base?

About 60 feet. Baseball is played on a " Diamond " right? The dimensions of the baseball Diamond are 90 feet along all four sides. A throw directly across the diamond from 3rd base to 1st base is 127 feet 3 3/8 inches. If the shortstop was positioned exactly midway between 3rd base and 2nd base and 15 feet off the base line toward left field, the throw would be approx. 114 feet.

Where should you hit a shot when playing doubles tennis matches?

In doubles you have more tennis court to cover, including the alleys. At the same time you also have a partner. Make sure you move as a team. Let's say that you're ready at the baseline and your opposing team has one player at the net and one player at the baseline then hit your return to the player at the baseline. This is the high percentage shot that has a great chance of going in. If you hit a high shot anywhere near the person at the net they will attack it with an offensive volley. Mix things up a bit and hit shots during a point that sometimes go directly at the net player. You can sail a lob over their head, or hit a strong winner down the alley, or hit an intense angle. This is the lower percentage shot, but it is good to put it in the game to keep your opponents on their toes.


Can you fake out a Runner trying to steal second by the pitcher throwing to shortstop?

I don't believe. Having been primarily positioned as a pitcher and having been around the game most of my days, I can't recall a single situation in which I've picked or have seen any one try and pick-off to the short stop. From my understanding you as a pitcher can only pickoff to a designated bag or it be called a balk and the runner will get himself a free bag. If the shortstop is actually covering 2nd base, then I think it be allowed. The idea of fakin a pick to a short stop positioned directly between 3rd and 2ns just doesn't seem rt. to me so I say no.
