    51) Charles is scheduled to bat but Daniel steps into the box and promptly strokes a double to right center field. The defensive team appeals to the home plate umpire before the next pitch or play. The umpire recognizes that Charles was scheduled to bat and that Daniel batted out of turn. The umpire calls Daniel out and removes him from the second base. (Rule 6.07(b))

    52) The 4th batter in the batting lineup is scheduled to bat, but the 5th batter bats instead (and gets good wood (?)on the ball) and strokes a triple. The defense manager is asking the assistant coach if that was the proper batter. While the assistant coach is checking the scorebook the 6th batter steps into the box. The first pitch is delivered to the 6th batter when the defensive dugout finds that the 5th batter did in fact bat out of turn. They call “Time” and inform the umpire, the umpire calls the 5th batter out and removes him/her from third base. (Rule 6.07(c))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 3. 
    53) The 4th batter is scheduled to bat but the 5th batter hits a single. The 7th batter now bats and takes ball 1. The defensive team calls “Time” and tells the umpire something is wrong. The umpire looks over the lineup card and sees that indeed 4 should have batted; but because of the pitch to the 7th batter the umpire rules that the next proper batter is the 6th batter and should get in the box with a 1-0 count. (Rule 6.07(d))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 4. 
    54) The batter is set in the box and the pitcher winds up and fires. The pitch is high and inside and clips the batter’s uniform sleeve. The defensive manager argues that it did not hit the batter it hit the uniform shirt. The umpire agrees and tells the batter to stay in the box and hit. (Rule 6.08(b))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    55) Runner on third base, no outs and a 3-2 count on the batter. As the pitch is delivered the batter takes a mighty swing and clips the catcher’s glove as the ball is hit to deep leftfield. The ball is caught for the first out of the inning and the runner on third tags properly and scores. The umpire calls “Time” and calls the offensive manager out of the dugout. The umpire tells the manager he can have the run and the out or he can have the runner back on third base and a runner on first base because of the catchers interference. (Rule 6.08(c))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    56) In a Junior Baseball/Softball game there are runners on second and third base and the pitcher delivers a pitch in the dirt that the batter swings and misses. The umpire rules that since the catcher caught the ball on the bounce the batter is not allowed to run to first, only when the ball is dropped is the batter allowed to run to first. Rule 6.09(b) Baseball and 6.09(h) Softball)
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    57) The batter crushes a fastball down the left field line that has extra bases written all over it. The leftfielder thinks the same thing and throws his/her glove at the ball and hits the ball with the  glove. Unfortunately this knocks the ball even further away from the leftfielder. The batter-runner puts it into high gear and scores just ahead of the throw for an inside the park home run. However, the umpire sends the batter-runner back to third base because the rule calls for only a three-base award for throwing equipment and hitting a batted ball. (Rule 7.05(c))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 8. 
    58) The throw in from the outfielder skips past the pitcher as the runner touches second base. The catcher has the mask in the right hand and reaches out and scoops up the ball in the mask.  The umpire sees that all play is over and by rule awards the runner home, a two-base award.  (Rule 7.05(d))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 9. 
    59) The first baseman has responsibility for being the cut-off on the throw from the outfielders to the plate. The run scores as the throw comes in on one bounce to the first baseman, but it takes a bad hop over the first baseman’s head. The first baseman throws his/her glove at and hits the ball as it goes over his/her head. The batter-runner has just tagged first base so the umpire, by rule, awards the batter-runner 3d base. (Rule 7.05(e))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 10. 
    60) Groundball to the shortstop who comes up firing, trying to get the speedy runner. But in the shortstop’s haste to throw the runner out, the ball is overthrown. The umpire places the runner at third base. (Rule 7.05(g))
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False
