Assuming he is right-handed, and if there is a runner on second base, he can either throw to second base or pitch.
No, once the runner heading for first base is out, the runner heading toward second base may safely return to first.
Runner attempting a steal from first, or a runner caught returning to second base.
When the runner on first steals to second base and the pitcher has already pitched the ball, the catcher should throw the ball from home to second to get the runner who is stealing out. ^^^lololol no. Unless the pitcher's throwing a fastball the runner has a good chance of making it.
No. The only base he has to throw to if he steps toward it from the rubber is 1st base.
The lead runner is the runner at the base closest to home plate when there is more than one runner on base. If there are runners on second base and third base, the runner on third base is the lead runner. If there are runners on first and second, the runner on second is the lead runner. If there is only one runner on base, there is no lead runner.
Yes. But he has to be careful not to balk.
That would depend on how the runner was retired at second base. For example, if the runner slipped and fell on his way to second base and the outfielder had the time to throw him out on a force play, the batter would not get credited with a base hit. If the runner made it to second base safely and then slipped rounding the bag and the outfielder threw to second base and the runner was tagged out, the batter would be credited with a base hit. If a runner is forced out at any base, regardless of where the ball was hit, the batter is not credited with a base hit.
you could check the runners at 2nd and 3rd, and then throw to first base. Once that is done, throw it home to prevent the runner on 3rd to go home.
No. If the runner doesn't cross the first base/right field line they cannot be considered attempting to go to second base.
Nope. It's a stolen base.
