When a ball is hit into left field it is the shortstop's job to act as a cutoff man while the second baseman covers second base and when the ball is hit to right field it is the second baseman's job to act as a cutoff unless the play is at home then the outfielder will throw to the first baseman as a middle man while the shortstop covers second base. Now if the ball is hit to center field then it is the shortstop's job to cutoff unless again the play is at home then the first baseman is the cutoff.
chase utley is!
Lately it's been Steven Drew.
when the ball is hit to the left fielder or goes into center field on the shortstops side of second base
No, a home run is when the ball goes out of the field.
the ball is given a no ball
No, once the fielder comes in contact with the batted ball a runner cannot be called for runner interference unless he intentionally goes out of his way (basepath) to make contact with the fielder
at first you pretty much stand there and wait for people to throw the ball to you. at second you have to field the ball and cover your base short stop is the hardest cause you have to field and cover tird and second base. outfield you just pretty get the ball when it goes out there in any position and third you play up on a bunt and field and pitcher you pitch and catching is difficult you have to know everything that's going on in the game at all times!
Once a ball bounces into the stands, it's out of play. It doesn't matter whether or not it bounced back into the field. The fact that a player touched it also doesn't change anything. So the rule here is the same as it would be for any ball that went into the stands: * A fair ball that reaches the stands without having bounced on the field is a homerun. * A fair ball that bounced into the stands is a ground rule double.
An aerial ball is when the ball goes into the air (a couple of feet off teh ground).
Fair. If the ball hits the bag [base] first then goes foul it is fair
YES... the ball is always live till the umpire stops play ... if the ball goes into the dugout the runner get one (1) base if the goes into the stands the runner take two (2) bases... if there's a runner on base they take the next open base...
ball of pudding
It is ruled a dead ball and each base runner would advance one base.
