Your hair is part of your body

Your hair is part of your body

Your hair is part of your body

Thomas asked: BASEBALL RULES CONCERNING IF HAIR IS PART OF THE PLAYER PER SE.


CAN A RUNNER BE TAGGED OUT GLOVE TO HAIR LIKE GLOVE TO UNIFORM?


Rick answered: Thomas, thank you for your question.

Rule 2.0...Definition of terms...the person of a player or an umpire is any part of his body, his clothing or equipment.

Hair would be considered a part of the body, as it is attached to such.

A tag anywhere on that person, their clothing and or equipment would be considered a legal tag and an out, as long as it was made prior to the runner's contact with the base.

The same would be true for a batter being hit with a pitch, the hair is a part of his body.

Yours in baseball,

Rick

RICK. THANKS FOR YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE.
IM SURE CAMERA REVIEW COULD CONFIRM THE CALL
"SAFE OR OUT BY THE HAIR..." BUT CSI COULD ALWAYS DO A DNA ANALYSIS. THANKS AGAIN RICK.
