Runner on third. A line drive is kicked and batted in the air by the 3rd baseman. Runner then leaves the base and heads home. Ball is caught in the air by the rover who then touches 3rd base. Is the runner out?
Yes, runner didn't tag up.
No, runner left the base after the ball made contact with a defensive player.
Situation: There are zero outs, there is a runner on 1st, and a runner on 3rd. A ball is kicked into the air and bounces off a outfielder. The runner on 1st then leaves leaves 1st base toward 2nd. The outfielder then catches the ball without it ever touching the ground. Then the runner on 3rd base leaves 3rd toward home. The ball is thrown to and controlled by the pitcher before either runner reaches their next base. The pitcher immediately takes the ball to tag 1st base. The runner that was at 1st before the play is now stopped on 2nd base, and the runner that was on 3rd base has crossed the home place. So, how many outs are there after the play ends?
