Baseball Rules Quiz

• 1.

### No outs, bases loaded. The first baseman catches a foul ball in play but his momentum carries him out of bounds. Where are runners on first, second and third placed?

• A.

• B.

The runners are not allowed to advance at all.

• C.

All runners are allowed to score.

• D.

D. All runners advance one base.
Explanation
When the first baseman catches a foul ball in play but his momentum carries him out of bounds, it is considered a "dead ball" situation. According to the rules, in a dead ball situation, all runners are awarded one base from their current position. Therefore, in this scenario, all runners on first, second, and third base would advance one base.

### One out. Runner on 1st is attempting to steal second. The catcher interferes with the batter who strikes out, and the catcher also throws out the runner at second. What is the call?

• A.

Batter is awarded first, runner stealing second is out.

• B.

Batter is out, runner is out.

• C.

Batter is out, runner is awarded second base.

• D.

Batter is awarded first base, runner is awarded second base.

D. Batter is awarded first base, runner is awarded second base.
Explanation
The correct call in this situation is that the batter is awarded first base and the runner is awarded second base. This is because the catcher interfered with the batter, which is considered a defensive interference. As a result, the batter is awarded first base. Additionally, since the runner was attempting to steal second base at the time of the interference, they are also awarded second base.

### Two outs, bases loaded, 3-2 count. With all the runners going on the pitch, the batter takes ball four. The runner from second touches and rounds third base and is picked off before the runner from 3rd has scored. Does the run count?

• A.

No, because it happened after the third out.

• B.

Yes, because the the runner was forced without liability

• C.

No, because only Jacoby Ellsbury can score from second on a play like that.

• D.

No, because the runner didn't retouch third base.

B. Yes, because the the runner was forced without liability
Explanation
In this scenario, the runner from second base was forced to advance to third base due to the batter taking ball four. Since there were two outs and the bases were loaded, the runner from third base was also forced to advance to home plate. The fact that the runner from second base was picked off before the runner from third base scored does not negate the run. The run counts because the runner was forced without any liability or choice in the matter.

• C.

The batter gets second, the runner gets home.

The batter gets second, the runner gets home because when the ball is called ball four and gets by the catcher and rolls out of play, it is considered a dead ball. According to the rules, when a ball is dead and the batter-runner advances to second base, any runners on base are awarded one base from their position at the time of the pitch. Therefore, the batter-runner is awarded second base and the runner on second base is awarded home.
