No hit it is a fielders choice
A fly ball that advances a runner from second to third is not counted as a sacrifice fly, and it does count as an at bat. Unless a runner scores on a fly ball, the batter is charged with an at bat.
No, a bunt that is scored as a sacrifice is never charged as an at-bat.
No. Any base runner that gets on base and scores is charged to the pitcher that pitched to him, regardless whether the batter reached base by a force out, error, catcher's interference,etc.
Which ever pitcher is responsible for the runner who scores to lose the game. Say pitcher A gives up a double, and is then replaced by Pitcher B. If pitcher B gives up another double, and the runner on second scores, Pitcher A gets the loss, because he put the scoring runner on base.
If the ball hits the runner before it passes a defensive player other than the pitcher, he is out. If the ball has passed another player (like the 2nd baseman) and then it hits the runner he is not out.
ed Parker isn't
It's a sacrifice fly. The batter is credited with an RBI, and the at-bat does not count against his batting average. The runner on second is inconsequential to the scoring decision.
In my opinion, if the pitcher who is responsible for the batter being on second base to begin with, then I believe it is an earned run...
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.
Assuming that the hit to the pitcher is a grounder, the shortstop should cover second base, and the second basemen should back-up the throw, so that it doesn't leak into center field. Of course, if the hit is a line-drive or pop-up that is caught by the pitcher, causing an out, the pitcher can throw the ball to the first baseman and get another out, if the runner is caught off that bag.
say there is a runner on 1st and 2nd. the runner on second would run to 3rd and be safe then the runner on 1st would run twould be safeo second and say there is a runner on 1st and 2nd. the runner on second would run to 3rd and be safe then the runner on 1st would run twould be safeo second and
Yes all the other bases are a force out. The runner going to first forces the runner at first to second. The runner at first forces the runner at second to third. The runner at second forces the runner at third to home. You only have to tag the runner when a runner that was "forcing" you (from a previous base) is out. In the scenario you have mentioned the only time the third baseman would have had to tag the runner from second to third would be if the initial force out was behind the runner at either at first or second (the putout thus not forcing the runner from second to third, which would now require a tag. If the initial force out was at first or second, the runner on second would have the choice of going to third or retreating to second, and not "forced" to run. Since the initial force out was at home, the runner from second to third is still being "forced" to run by the runners behind him. Make sense?
NO. Base runner's must run the bases in the order they batted. If a runner overtakes another runner, he is automatically out.
If s/he touches Second Base he can't retreat.
yes, as long as there was only 0 or 1 out b/c if there was 2 outs the out on the advancing runner would end the inning
Yes as long as the runner advances Assuming you mean the runner tags up on a fly ball and advances to second, it is not scored as a sacrifice, but, simply as a fly out and the batter is charged with a time at bat. If the batter bunt a ground ball, the runner would not be required to "tag up" to advance and the batter would be credited with a sacrifice. If the batter is attempting a sacrifice bunt and pops up and the runner, tags up and somehow advances to second the batter is not credited with a sacrifice.
The run would not count since the fielder tagged a runner out during the batter's run to 1st base. It makes no difference where the runner who was on 3rd base is at.
The third place win is usually referred to as the second runner up. The winner is first, the runner up is second, the second runner up is third.
Runner on first is out. Runner on second is safe because he was tagged while standing on second base.
The second runner can, assuming he hasn't crossed in front of the lead runner. If he does that, they are both called out.
if he interferes with the runner that would be called obstruction
