(Upper Cape May)
Full count with runner on 3rd base, 2 outs, third strike is a passed ball. Runner comes home, catcher throws down to first and batter is put out. Does the run count?
COACH HENZE’S ANSWER
Thanks for the question Joe!
In this case, the run does NOT count. The out that was recorded at first base was a “force-out.” Any tag situation would have resulted in the run counting, but since all the defense had to do was force an out at 1st, the run does not count.
Thanks again for the question!
