Best Answer

No, because the catcher asks the umpire for time out and is granted time out before he visits the pitcher. No runner may advance while time is out.

The catcher can cause a balk, but the balk is charged to the pitcher. If, during an intentional walk, the catcher steps out of the catcher's box before the ball leaves the pitcher's hand, it is a balk. Or, if a runner is trying to score from 3rd base by a steal or squeeze play and the catcher touches the batter or the batter's bat, or steps on home plate or in front of home plate without the ball, it is a balk.

Can a balk be called on the catcher in baseball?

One Answer:A balk can only be called on the pitcher. A balk is when a pitcher interrupts the pitching motion. Another Answer:In addition to the usual and commonly known reasons for a balk, here are a few others: Rule 4.03 - If, during an intentional walk, the catcher steps out of the catcher's box before the ball leaves the pitcher's hand, it is a balk. All other players must be in fair territory (for example, if a first or third baseman is straddling the bag holding a runner on, both feet must be in fair territory) at the time the ball leaves the pitcher's hand, or it is a balk.Rule 7.07 - If a runner is trying to score from 3rd base by a steal or squeeze play and a fielder or the catcher touches the batter or the batter's bat, or steps on home plate or in front of home plate without the ball, it is a balk (charged against the pitcher).

What is a passed ball?

Passed BallA pitch that should have been fielded by the catcher but was missed, allowing a runner to advance a base.Note: this is not the same thing as a wild pitch, which is scored as the pitchers fault.I presume you mean "passed ball." This is a ball that gets past the catcher when thrown by the pitcher, when the catcher should have caught it. It is distinct from a wild pitch, which is one where the pitcher, not the catcher, is considered to have been at fault. The distinction between the two have no effect on the final score. The decision on whether a ball is a wild pitch or a passed ball is made by the official scorer at the game.


Can a runner score on a fly ball if the other runner doesn't?

Sure. The runner on 3rd base can tag up and score. The runner on 2nd may not even be able to advance to 3rd base, especially if the fly ball is to left field. To further clarify..a base runner may not pass another base runner who is ahead of him..so, if your question means can a runner on 2nd or 1st, tag up and score if the runner on third doesn't, the simple answer is no...however, in a rare case they could. Let's assume that the runner on third tags up, but is thrown out at home and it is not the 3rd out of the inning, then the catcher either throws the ball away, or otherwise loses the ball, the other runner or runners may then advance and score. The batter, though, is not credited with a Sacrifice Fly, nor an RBI.


Can a runner score on the third out of an inning?

How can you rewrite '' he tags the runner out' into to an imperative?

When writing or "doing the official score book", when a runner is tagged out, the number designated by the field position (so pitcher would be 1, catcher would be 2, ect...) with the letter "U" would be the correct notation. So for instance if the 2nd baseman would to tag a runner going from 1st to 2nd base the notation would be 4U. Meaning second baseman unassisted.

How do you score a missed throw by a fielder during a stolen base?

If the scorer believes that the runner would have been safe either way no error is awarded if the runner does not advance further. If the runner would have been out then the scorer gives the error to either the fielder or the catcher depending on the throw.

What is a home plate collision?

A home plate collision is usually the case of a base runner that was on one of the bases trying to reach home plate in order to score while the other team's Catcher is trying to block home plate in order to prevent the base runner from touching home plate in an effort to prevent a run from scoring and the runner and the base runner usually slides into the Catcher that is blocking home plate which is what one example of a home plate collision is.


How does a pitcher earn a win in baseball?

TO UPDATE THE PERSON'S POST ABOVE: MLB Rules state that a condition for a "save" is that the pitcher is not eligible for a "win". As such, a relief pitcher entering the game prior to the 5th as a reliever would get credit for the win, with no save allocated. If a pitcher pitches 6 innings and leaves the mound with the lead to field another position, then returns in the 9th to close, he remains credited with the win (if his score holds) with no save allocated. As for a team taking the lead with a pinch-hitter for a pitcher, the actual change of pitcher of record does not take effect until the next pitcher "takes the mound". Though the pitcher is removed for a pinch-hitter, the performance of the team will affect his ability to win the game. In other words, if the pitcher leaves the game while his team is on offense with the lead, he can only earn a win or a no decision. If he leaves the game while his team is on offense with a tie or behind, he can win, lose, or have a no-decision, depending on what the score is when the next pitcher takes the mound.


Why in baseball can't you steal home?

Technically you can steal home if the ball goes behind the catcher or something. You can attempt to steal home if the catcher is there but it wouldn't be the smartest thing to do because they would just tag you out. /// The above answer is completely wrong. Of course you can steal home! If there is a passed ball or wild pitch-- that isn't a steal, that's scoring on an error!// A steal of home is exciting, but rarely done in modern baseball. In contrast, Ty Cobb stole home 54 times! The classic or "pure" steal is where the runner steals with no help from the batter. For example, if the runner notices the pitcher is not holding him close and/or the 3rd baseman is way off the bag, the runner can get a walking lead or a large secondary lead and then take off as the pitcher is still winding up and then try to score. The element of surprise often makes this successful. Note that there are 28 ways or situations in which a runner on 3rd can score in baseball. This is just 1 of them.

The element of surprise often makes this successful. There are two squeeze bunt plays that can be called by the coach that allow the runner on 3rd to score. However, if successful, it is due to the hit of the batter and is therefore not technically a steal. a. Safety squeeze, a play called by the coach. The runner runs home after seeing the batter (who is of course also in on the play) bunt successfully anywhere EXCEPT to the pitcher. That is, if the bunt is left or right of the pitcher, the runner takes off and attempts to score. b. Suicide squeeze. Here the runner assumes the batter will indeed make contact with a bunt and assumes it will not be hit in the air and caught (opening up double play risks). When the play is called, the runner simply takes off and trusts the batter to bunt successfully. Very risky. Note that there are 28 ways or situations in which a runner on 3rd can score in baseball. These are 3 of them.
