Does The Run Count

The bases are loaded and there is one out. There is a flyball hit to right field that is caught for the 2nd out. The runner on third tags and advances to the plate and scores. The right fielder throws the ball back to the pitcher. The defensive teams coach claims that the runner who was on 2nd base and tagged up and went to 3rd base left early. they appeal and the umpire says she did leave early and is called out

The question is does the run count that tagged from third and scored on the sac fly?

The Run Does not Count
by: Dan

Hi Ryan,

Under Rule 5 - The Game; Section 5 - Scoring of Runs; B: No run shall be scored if the third out of the inning is the result of (3) A preceding runner is declared out on an appeal play. NOTE: An appeal can be made after the third out in order to nullify a run.

That is self-explanatory that the run does not count.

Good luck with your season!
