The Ole Ball Game

If bases are loaded and there is a ground all hit to as and 3rd Base makes it home before we can make an out for what ever reason, is it still a run?7

curt asked: If bases are loaded and there is a ground ball hit as the runner on third base makes it home before the defense can make an out, for whatever reason, is it still a run?

Rick answered: Curtis, thank you for your question.

Rule 5:08 How A Team Scores

(a) One run shall be scored each time a runner legally advances to and touches first, second, third and home base before three men are put out to end the inning.

Exception: A run is not scored if the runner advances to home base during a play in which the third out is made (1) by the batter-runner before he touches first base

(2) by any runner being forced out, or

(3) by a preceding runner who is declared out because he failed to touch one of the bases.

Yours in baseball,
