We are in our first year of girls stealing bases and playing dropped third strike. The first game saw a total of 4 hit yet 35 runs were scored. Girl walks, steals second, steal third, and then scores on passed ball. Since none of the girls swing the bat and wait for the walk, my question is can I play my center fielder behind the catcher to prevent (or at least delay the inevitable walking the batter with bases loaded) the runner to score from third.
Do you have to play your fielders in the field or can you play them anywhere?
