Judy asked: Why did the runner on 3rd base get to advance to home when batter called time out?

Rick answered: Judy, I will need additional information and detail for your question.

Not enough info to know what took place.

Please submit with the additional info.

Yours in baseball,

Balk NEW

I believe that is because the pitcher balked. Many things can be called a balk. The pitcher dropping the ball is one of them.
