no it just has to be a strike
yes he can do it
yes it is legal
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.

An illegal batter is a batter who bats out of his legal turn.
It is called plagerism.
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.
They generally "run" documents to court or do filings elsewhere.

Well, if it was up to me, killing any animal would be illegal.
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.
no. so just hope he is a fast runner.
Your question makes no sense. Disclaimer signs are legal. This doesn't change if a person is in a changing room stealing something.
It is legal to trip the ballcarrier. Rulebook definition: Tripping is the use of the lower leg or foot to obstruct an opponent, who is not the runner (ballcarrier), below the knee. If tripping occurs on an opponent other than the runner it is a 15 yard penalty.
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.
On a force out, you may either tag the base the runner is being forced to, or you may tag the runner before he gets to that base. If it is not a force out, you must tag the runner while he is off whatever base he has a legal right to occupy.
A batter must request and then be given time from the home plate umpire. If the batter backs out of the batter's box without time being called the pitch is legal and valid.
Yes, it's legal in Major League Baseball provided the pitcher isn't in the middle of a pitch otherwise it's illegal.
In every state it is legal to marry your second cousin. In 1/2 of the states it is legal to marry your first cousin. Check the applicable law in your state.
As long as one foot is not COMPLETELY outside the batter's box when the bat contacts the ball, the hit is legal.
no absolutely not it is an automatic strike If the ball is pitched and hits the ground before it gets to the batter and the batter then hits the ball it is a legal hit.
The first marriage is legal. If there is a divorce then, the second marriage is legal. If there isn't a divorce, then it is not legal.
Yes, there are no rules in baseball stating what kind of pitch a batter may swing at. It wouldn't be wise to swing at a pitch thrown during an intentional walk, but if the batter wanted to it would be legal.
