Play like no tomorrow and enjoy the ride! 😊

It’s your last chance to see them all in action. Come out and cheer on the Home team!!!
ARMCHAIR UMPIRE – YOU MAKE THE CALL
Situation: Two outs, the runner on Third base is hit by a fair, batted ball near the base (standing on the line, hence in fair territory).
The umpire properly declares the runner out for interference.
Since this is the third out, the batter never reached first base.
Question: Does the batter get to bat again to lead off the next inning?

ARMCHAIR UMPIRE RULING
For scoring purposes, the batter is credited with a safe, base hit and
he does not bat again to lead off the next inning.
TIP FOR THE DAY –
STAY FOCUSED AT THE PLATE AND KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL!
Don’t get any ideas 😊
Have a great weekend.
