(Mechanicsville, Virginia, United States )
Cody asked: Can the defense appeal the last play of the game?
Rick answered: Cody, thank you for your question.
The defense is able to appeal the last play of a game.
The rule which covers this situation is 8-2, article 6...Appeal Procedures and Guidelines.
j. End of game. If any situation arises which could lead to an appeal by the defense on the last play of the game, the appeal must be made while an umpire is still on the field of play.
Thank you again for your question.
Yours in baseball,
