No, but there should be.
No there is no framing rule.
That's just the rule. It is like baseball, because if you pitched underhanded in baseball, it would be a balk, and there is probably a similar rule in softball.
In softball pitching the pitcher is only allowed one big step because the rule states that prior to the pitch both feet should be on the pitcher's plate and during the pitch one foot should be on the plate before ball is released. you can check the basics of pitching here: http://www.softballperformance.com/softball-pitching/coaching-softball-pitching.html
I don't know what the "legal" umpire answer would be, but I do know that fastpitch bats are made lighter so they can be swung quicker. It seems like you would want to use a slowpitch bat in slowpitch for the extra power you would get from the extra weight of the bat. There is no rule against it as long as the bat is an approved bat in the league you are playing in, i.e. ASA, USSSA, ISA, NSA.
pretty much every rule is the same with some exceptions for pitching because that is the only major difference between the two
10 seconds from the time the pitcher has the ball in the circle. This rule is seldom ever enforced. The only way you will ever get this call is for the pitcher to get on the rubber and ready to pitch which will show a delay by the batter.
If you are going to compete in an organized sporting event, then it is not legal. If you are going to roll your bat, make sure you keep it for your personal home use. See the related link below for the clarifications from the Armature Softball Association of America. Every Sanction of baseball, fastpitch, little league and slopitch softball has an "alteration" or "modification rule except for the ISA in slowpitch soft ball they cleary state it is illegal. Try Batrolling4u.com... I've had great luck with them
It depends on the league. Generally youth leagues have a rule that states how much each player must play, but ASA doesnt cover that, as there are no rules specific to the game of softball that declares a player must play in high school and more advanced leagues
7 innings unless there is a mercy rule
No, Out of everything boys have done, Boys rule girls drool.
In competitive mens slowpitch softball, a "sac fly" is an out. However, the batter still receives the RBI.
I assume you are referring to the international tie breaking procedure. It can be used as a state adoption. Please check with your states high school athletic association to see if they have adopted the rule.
Its a 5 point mercy rule
softball has 7 innings in less a tie then they play more innings if one team is winning by a lot they have the mercy rule and they call the game
8 or more runs after 5 innings.
Catholic School Girls Rule was created on 1985-08-16.
Not in high school or college or MLB. There could be local slowpitch softball leagues that have a rule like that but there is no such rule in baseball.
If you are a girl, you probably think girls 'rule', however if you are a boy, you probably think boys 'rule'. There is no right or wrong answer, it is just a matter of opinion.
In fastpitch softball, any player removed from the game and substituted by another player is allowed on re-entry. Some sanctioning bodies also allow for a courtesy runner for the pitcher and the catcher. Using a courtesy runner does not follow the substitution rule. In baseball, any player removed from the game is out. Period. No re-entry allowed.
They aren't girls rule.
Because girls rule boys drool.
Pay attention to the game at all times! Know where your runners are, and if their covered.
There is nothing I have found in the MLB rules that would prohibit a pitcher from a pitching motion similar to that of a softball pitcher. Actually, the underhanded motion was the rule when Alexander Cartwright came up with the rules of baseball in 1845. I have included a link, named 'MLB Rule 8', to the MLB rules concerning the pitcher on this page.
yes she sure can! GIRLS RULE!
game stops after 5 innings when one team has a 10 or more run lead.
