No outs. Runners on 2nd and 3rd. 2-2 count on batter. Batter interference on 3rd dropped strike. Runner on third was stealing home . Who is out? What is the call? Is ball dead? Batter out for interference and runners return to base at the time of pitch?


Thanks for the question!

In all honesty, I am not 100% sure of this answer, but going to give it a try. If you are reading this question and know the answer, please feel free to comment.

After doing some research, I think the ball is dead, the runner is out because there are less than two outs and the batter was interfering with the catcher on a scoring play. Due to it being a scoring play and less than two outs, the runner is called out. The runner at 2nd returns to 2nd and the batter is still up with 2 strikes. If there were two outs, then it would be called like a normal offensive interference call in which the batter would be out which would end the inning.
