Was watching a game this weekend and saw a play that I was curious to see what you guys thought…. U-trip sanctioned, 1 courtesy foul… Ok- Bases are loaded with 1 out. The batter has no fouls remaining. He hits a lazy pop up that is foul, and the first baseman runs, slides, and catches the ball (no call has been made yet that the batter is out or the ball is dead), well for some reason the guy on 2nd base had ran off the bag like he was going to go to 3rd and the 1st baseman thows it over there and 2nd baseman tags the runner out. For what they think “is a double play”. Well the team that’s hitting, speaks up and says “No way, that’s a dead ball on 3rd strike foul (fouled out)”… I agree with the batter being out by the ball being fouled out, but whats the rulling for the guy coming off of 2nd base and getting tagged, Time was never called so is it assumed that the game is timed out since the batter had just fouled out?
