Although I was perhaps the worst Little League second baseman to ever take the field, I feel that I know the rules of the sport better than most. I was surprised to learn the following, however. Do you know?
According to the Official Rules of Major League Baseball, whatÂ occurs when a fielder attempts to catch a batted ball with his hat or mask (or byÂ tossing his glove at the ball)?
HereÂ is the ANSWER.
The batter who hit the ball is awarded three bases (placed on third base), and any runners that were already on base score a run.
