What should the first baseman do? There is a runner on third with two outs. The game is tied in the bottom of the last inning of regulation play. (This is the 6th inning in our league.) The batter hits a ground ball directly to the first baseman, who fields it cleanly.





A. He should throw home to try to get the runner at the plate. If the runner scores, the other team wins so he has to get the out there.
B. He should step on first base to get the force out. When the defense makes the third out on a forced runner, no runs scores even if a runner touches the plate before the defense makes the out.
C. He should throw to second base.
