The game of softball is played on a softball field or, "pitch" that includes 3 bases and a home plate arranged in the shape of a diamond:

Softball involves two teams of 9 players - one team on defense and one team on offense. The object of the game is to get a "runner" on base by hitting a pitched ball and to advance this runner safely around all the bases to home plate. A runner advances safely by not being touched by a player holding the ball or by getting to the next base before the defense can get the ball to that same base. This scores your team one "run." The team with the most runs in seven innings wins the game. If the score is tied after seven innings, teams continue to play until one of the them scores more runs at the end of any inning thereafter to win. The tie-breaker rule is put into effect at the eighth inning. Each teams half of the inning (counted when they are on offense) ends where three of its batters have been ruled out. (We talk about outs in the How Do You Play the Game? Section). The positions for the defensive team are as follows:
