What happens to a hitter while during his plate appearance the third out is made in an errant attempt by a runner to steal a base.
(Fountain Valley, Ca)
Out at Second
Todd asked:So a hitter is up at the plate with two outs.
A runner at first attempts to steal second base and is thrown out thus making the third out.
What happens to the hitter?
Does he regain an attempt at the plate the next time his team bats or is that scored as a sacrifice/ fielder's choice charged to his plate appearance?
Rick answered: Todd, thank you for your question.
The batter becomes the lead-off hitter when that team comes back in to hit.
Yours in baseball,
