I just started playing lob ball (softball) and the rules are very different. Do you get called out if you step on home plate when you bat? Should you touch home plate if you are running in from third base?
Hey dylmanLob ball, slow pitch and softball are all played with a variety of different rules, depending on the league or age-level that is being played. A batter is usually out if they step on home plate. Some leagues may allow batters to step on home plate if they're swinging at a pitched ball.
In lob ball or slo-pitch softball, a base runner is out if they touch home plate when running from third base. Instead of crossing home plate, base runners score a run by crossing a marked line beside home plate. This rule was introduced to avoid nasty collisions at home plate between base runners and the catcher, which often cause serious injuries.
