Sorry if I'm in the wrong spot on this board. My 9 year old daughter wanted to try REC softball, an email went out that unless they found another coach they wouldn't be able to hold the draft. Okay then, I volunteered.
My qualifications are watching youth baseball for the last 10 years (6u-17u), and a LOT of patience....so, can someone please tell me the rule differences in softball and baseball so I can look LESS like an idiot.
Some random things that happen in baseball would be:
1. Dropped third strike, batter can advance to first if the catcher/player doesn't get them out
2. Infield fly rule
3. Catcher's interference
4. If the runner on 1st passes the runner on second they are automatically out
5. catching a foul tip = out
6. Must slide when coming into home if the catcher has the ball
Are things like that relevant to softball too?
