Baseball scenario question
Two outs, runner on third. Pitcher throws a pitch, runner takes off to steal home. Strike three is called, catcher drops the ball. Batter turns to go back to dugout, catcher picks up ball to tag batter, runner crossed before he tagged him. Does the run count? I assumed batter was out when he gave himself up and turned to dugout.

re: Baseball scenario question
If the batter left the box he is out

Run doesn't count. A runner can't score when the 3rd out is made before a runner reaches 1st base.
quote:

4.09 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;

This. It literally happens all the time when you have a runner on 3rd base and 2 outs. The runner on 3rd will frequently cross home before the 3rd out is made on a force play at 1st.

The confusion obviously comes because a tag play doesnt negate the run but a force play does.

A tag out is still considered a force out if there was a force to be made on the player that was tagged.

re: Baseball scenario question
It was 14 year old boys. My boss runs the league in st. Martinville and he always calls and ask me My opinion on scenarios. That one happened and I told him batter was out and runner doesn’t score due to it being a force out. I just wanted to hear some opinions on it.
