Yes it is. It is actually a very, very smart defensive play. By catching the ball, yes you gain the out, but the runner will most likely score. By letting the ball go, the player gave their pitcher another chance to strike the batter out or have the batter hit a ball in an easier to handle area.

Is there automatic time out after base on balls in baseball?

No. After a base on balls, or a walk, the ball is still in play. That leads to a common "trick" used often in sub-professional ball where the batter will jog to first after a walk and continue to second. When the fourth ball of an at bat is a passed ball, the batter can try and stretch the walk to second base. Both of these moves are legal.

No. MLB Rule 6.03 states: "The batter's legal position shall be with both feet within the batter's box. APPROVED RULING: The lines defining the box are within the batter's box." Since home plate is not within the batter's box, touching the plate with a foot while swinging would not be legal.

What happens if a runner on third takes off to steal home and the pitcher legally steps off of the mound and throws home and the batter hits the ball?

It's called a "run and hit" play. The runner from third takes off towards home plate and it's the batters job to put the ball in play so the runner can score.Correct answer:The answer above does not apply to the question as the question implies the pitcher stepped off, so the ball thrown home is not a pitch. (my opinion, but i will leave it)First off, I dont think this is a situation that you will find in the rule book exactly as described, so there will need to be some interpretation done on the side of the umpires as to "what actually happened". If this was a game I was umpiring I would call the runner out for interference by a player/coach that is not envolved in the play (the batter, in this situation). But like I said, the umpire would have to determine that the pitcher stepped off legally -- the fact that the batter hit it would be deemed as intentional because there is a big difference between a throw to the plate as a pitch, and one that is not a pitch -- first off if he stepped off, i doubt the pitcher would follow the legal mechanics to make a legal pitch -- so right there it has to be ruled either -- 1. pitcher stepped off and is making a play on the runner at 3rd or 2. a balk (and the runner would be rewarded home)BUT, under no circumstances could the pitcher both step off the pitching rubber and the batter hit the ball thrown home. -- the umpire would have to determine as said before.. if the pitcher stepped off legally or balkedThank you. I misread the question.
