Runner on 2nd. Batter bunts the ball. Home plate calls dead ball. Ball hit batter outside of box. Runner runs to 1st. Runner on 2nd advance to 3rd. 2nd basemen comes of 1st because ump calls dead ball. Coach appeals to field ump. They talk and said ball didn’t hit batter. Everyone is safe. My question is that right even though ump called deadball and defense quit playing.
