You score in baseball by advancing runners around the bases (first, second, third and home). Once a runner touches home plate without being tagged out, this is counted as a run. Each runner that crosses home plate counts as one more run.
no. force out runner to first base kills the run crossing the plate with 2 outs
The guys on the field with all the pads. One is behind the plate(calls balls or strikes), one by third base(calls the runner safe or if he is out), and one by first base(calls the runner safe or if he is out.
No the runner is not out unless the first baseman tags him, the first baseman touches the bag before the runner there, or the runner steps out of the baseline. The runner could go back and forth on the base path for as long as he can stay safe. So simply, no the runner is not out yet.
If a batter hits the ball and a defensive player tries to get the runner at the plate does the batter get a hit recorded?If the official scorekeeper feels that the runner would have been put out at first, it is a Fielder's Choice. If the scorekeeper feels that the runner would have been safe at first anyway, it is a hit.This would be true, unless the runner is thrown out at the plate, then it would again be recorded as a Fielder's Choice.
Whenever there is a play the runner has to slide. there is no mandatory slide rule the runner just has to avoid contact
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.
Not only in youth baseball but in all levels of baseball, a closed base means that the next base that a base runner needs to get to has a runner already on the bag. E.G.: There's a runner on first and second, so a ground ball will force a throw from second base to first base considering that those bases are "closed" with base runners. In a bases loaded situation, all bases are "closed" because all bases have a base runner and the batter is considered on home plate.
No runner is allowed to be touched while running the bases. Only a bad umpire would enforce this rule on a high five. There is no rule that prohibits touching a runner, but there is a rule prohibiting physically assisting a runner.
YES the catcher is SUPPOSED to block the plate as long as he has the ball. if the batter swings and hits the catcher the runner would return to third and the batter awarded first base. If the bases were loaded the catchers interference would force the runner home.
of course not
No, only an offensive player can score a run, and they must be in order. If one runner passes another runner, he's out.
