Rule: A runner cannot over run any other base other than first. Skill: To slide, tuck one leg under the other, to make a "4" and lean backwards. Make sure the arms stay up, off the ground to avoid spraining the wrist. Rule: The runner cannot leave before the ball leaves the pitcher's hands. Rule: An infield fly is when a fly ball is hit, and there are runners on first and second, and even third. The batter is automatically out. Rule: There are three strikes until a strike out. There are four balls until a walk. There are three outs an inning. S FTBALL Rule: If a runner runs out of the base path, she is out Rule: A crow hop is when a pitcher does not push of the rubber, but rather takes a small step from the rubber which results in a new push off point. This is illegal. However, it is legal if the pitcher leaps and makes a continuous drag of her pivot foot.
