Questions and Answers

    31) The batter steps into the batter’s box and promptly strokes a single on the first pitch. The defensive manager comes out to the umpire and appeals to the umpire that the offensive team is batting out of order. In checking this out, the umpire decides that the batter is a substitute batter and should be allowed to stay on first and not called out. (Rule 3.08(2))

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The batter is allowed to stay on first because they are a substitute batter, as determined by the umpire. According to Rule 3.08(2), if a batter bats out of order and it is discovered while they are at bat, the proper batter is the one who should have batted. However, if the improper batter completes their turn at bat and reaches base safely, the defensive team cannot appeal the batting out of order and the batter is allowed to stay on base.
