Fielder hit

by Kelly
(Pleasant Lake, Indiana)

Batter hits the ball to third base and hits the girl in the head. Batter keeps running all the way home. All players,on the field go to the player who got hit. Is the ball still live and the run counts?

Live Ball
by: Dan

Hi Kelly,

Believe it or not, it is still a live ball, so the runner is permitted to keep running and the run counts. I was at a game where the two outfielders ran into each other and basically knocked each other out and the batter circled the basis and the run counted. The ball is live and therefore the runner is permitted to advance at their own risk.
