As some of you might already know, Force’s girl plays softball on an inner-city team. Although softball doesn’t play an important part in the book, I have a few questions and hope my readers can help me with them. (I know a few things about baseball but not so much about softball.)
So here are my questions:
1. Are you allowed to steal bases in softball?
2. Assuming that you are allowed to steal bases, is it possible (realistic) for a girl catcher to throw someone out at second or is it too far to lob that great big ball?
