Every softball player starts somewhere. For most, it’s the backyard or the neighborhood park where they’ll first pick up a bat and glove, learning the basics as they hone their skills.
And those early moments, however small, are especially critical. This is when young players learn good habits, good form and a good stance not to mention a healthy love of the game.
Much like baseball, softball is played on a field featuring a diamond shaped infield and four bases. When a batter swings and hits the ball in the field of play, she must head down the right base path and try to reach first base before a fielder fields and throws it to the first baseman.
When a struck ball is caught in the air, the runner also is out. Like baseball, a half-inning ends when a team records three outs, a player walks after taking four balls and strikes out after the third strike. When players successfully round the bases and cross home plate, a run is scored. The goal, of course, is to score more runs than your opponent.
Hitting a softball is not easy if you don't have the right fundamentals nailed down.
