Yes, as long as the batter thrown out at first is not the third out of the inning.
no it just has to be a strike
The ball is still on play on a dropped-third strike and a runner can attempt to reach first base as long as a runner doesn't occupy first base prior to the dropped pitch.
The drop third strike rule only applies when there is no runner on first base. In this case nothing would happen but the batter would be out.
Batter is out, the ball is dead when it hits the batter. Runner at third returns to third.
In MLB, you can run on an uncaught third strike in two situations: 1) There are two outs. 2) There are less than two outs and there is not a runner on first base.
Yes, if it just merely a dropped 3rd strike and he is safe, then he will be credited with a steal, however, if the pitch is ruled a passed ball or wild pitch, then the runner will not be credited with a stolen base, but rather just advancing on a passed ball/wild pitch
"Dropped third strike", batter swings and misses the third strike, he then runs to an unoccupied first base, but catcher throws him out at first to complete the STRIKE OUT. it's a STRIKE OUT (Capital "K" in the book).
On a dropped third strike, if there's a runner on first and less than 2 outs than the batter is automatically retired, whether or not the runner from first was stealing on the pitch. If there are 2 out, the batter can try to reach base, and the runner from first would be forced to try to advance to second. As on any other pitch, a runner can always try to advance, but would only be credited with a stolen base if he left the bag when the pitch was thrown, not after it was dropped.
No. You must tag the player or throw him out at first base - or get another runner out by force!!
