Double-Play Ball

Postby stupot88 » Thu Apr 07, 2005 6:43 pm

I couldn't find another forum for this but...

When there is a man on first... and like 0 or 1 outs and a groundball is hit to the second baseman... why doesnt the runner purposly get hit by the ball to avoid the double play

7.09.g

If, in the judgment of the umpire, a base runner willfully and deliberately interferes with a batted ball or a fielder in the act of fielding a batted ball with the obvious intent to break up a double play, the ball is dead. The umpire shall call the runner out for interference and also call out the batter runner because of the action of his teammate. In no event may bases be run or runs scored because of such action by a runner.

Oftentimes, the baserunner doesn't have to deliberately interfere to be in the path of the flying baseball. Yet infielders will continually throw through the baserunner because they know the runner values his face more than the out.

Where did you get this from? Are the official rules online somewhere?

Yeah, MLB.com it's fantastic.

Hard as hell to navigate sometimes but it has everything (statwise) you need.
