Best Answer

Rule 7.05(h) says that if a catcher (or any fielder) deliberately uses his hat or mask to touch a ball in play, the runner shall advance one more base.

7.05(d) says if the catcher (or any fielder) throws his hat or mask to catch or stop a thrown ball, the runner shall advance two bases.
