LIttle League Baseball: Batter hits solid double but is thrown out trying to stretch it for a triple
Anonymous asked: Howdy:
Question on how to properly log the following situation: Little League Batter (Age 10) hits a solid double. He safely reaches 2nd and decides to try to advance to third. He is thrown out at third.
Is this scored as:
A hit (double) and Caught Stealing into third?
simply as an out; Center Field throws to third base (8-5)?
What is the correct way to score this situation?
Thanks in advance for the guidance!
Rick answered: Thank you for your question!
In your situation, the batter/runner is credited with a double. Record the 8-5 as an out, record the out as 1,2 or 3, whichever it is, and circle the number.
Yours in baseball,
