Rules Question

Well, I am in the thick of fall ball and have been doing a few games here and there. Even though most of the games aren't very competative, I enjoy fall ball. It gives me a chance to work on new plate mechanics or to sharpen up things that need work on. It is also, for the most part, a much more relaxed atmosphere than the summer.

I have three games this week so I hope to have some stories by the weekend but now is a good time for a couple rules questions.

This play I saw earlier this summer. I know I got the call right but the coach didn't agree. Let's see what you come up with.

Runner on first. The first baseman is playing in front of the runner. Batter hits a line drive past the first baseman and it hits the the runner. The 2nd baseman hasn't moved. Whats the call?

I'm sure all of you will get that one. I sure hope so.

Well, I am going to try to come up with some really good rules questions over the next few weeks. Until then, remember that the tie does not go to the runner and PLAY BALL!!!!
