Rule Clarification

Softball is a relatively simple game, but given all the rules clarifications lately,
I thought the following simple explanation regarding softball rules would be appropriate.

Softball is a game played by two teams, one out, the other in.
The one that's in, sends players out, one at a time, to see if they can get in before they get out.
If they get out before they get in, they come in, but it doesn't count.
If they get in before they get out, it does count.
When the ones out get three outs from the ones in before they get in without
being out, the team that's out comes in and the team in goes out to get those
going in out before they get in without being out.
When both teams have been in and out seven times, the game is over.
The team with the most in without being out before coming in, wins unless the ones in are
equal, in which case, the last ones in go out to get the ones in out before
they get in without being out.
The game will end when each team has the same number of ins out, but one team
has more in without being out before coming in.

Or something like that.....

I can't help but wonder which post like this was actually the original...
Both have same date. The only differences I note are the beginning, end and title.

You are correct. I received this via email and decided to share with the board. Unfortunatly I was in a hurry and did not take the time to see if it was already posted. It's lighter reading than a lot of the recent posts, so it probably won't be a problem.
