Who is baseballs top home runner?
First off, the question should be phrased who has the most home runs? The answer is Barry Bonds for both a single year (73 in 2001) and lifetime (762).
However, Bonds and others in recent years are suspected by many to be a steroid user in the 1990's and 2000's. Therefore, many baseball fans feel Henry Aaron's record of 755 lifetime and Roger Maris's record of 61 in a year to be the true leaders.
The lead runner is the runner at the base closest to home plate when there is more than one runner on base. If there are runners on second base and third base, the runner on third base is the lead runner. If there are runners on first and second, the runner on second is the lead runner. If there is only one runner on base, there is no lead runner.
The baseballs used for the Home Run Derby, are regulation size Rawlings baseballs. The baseballs are sanctioned by Major League baseball for the use in the home run derby. The size of a Rawlings Official Major League Baseball game ball cannot be less than five ounces nor more than 5 Â¼ ounces; not less than nine nor more than 9 Â¼ inches in circumference.
A home plate collision is usually the case of a base runner that was on one of the bases trying to reach home plate in order to score while the other team's Catcher is trying to block home plate in order to prevent the base runner from touching home plate in an effort to prevent a run from scoring and the runner and the base runner usually slides into the Catcher that is blocking home…
When advancing from third to home the runner runs into catcher whom is not making a play should the runner be ejected from the game?
This is a good question. If the catcher is in the base path when the runner is running home the runner will not be ejected and the point will be scored automatically. This is due to the fact that the only time the catcher can block home plate is when he has the ball, otherwise he must be out of the runners way.
On defense if a runner is caught in a run down between 2nd and 3rd and there is a runner on 3rd base should we throw home to not allow the run to score?
Yes if a runner doesn't touch home plate and enters the dugout an Umpire can call him out the second he leaves the dirt surrounding the area of the home plate and the two batter's boxes however Major League Umpires may not opt to declare a runner out even if he missed home plate unless the opposing team appeals the call or tags the runner.
If the bases are loaded and the force is at home plate are the other bases a force out or does the third baseman have to tag the runner?
Yes all the other bases are a force out. The runner going to first forces the runner at first to second. The runner at first forces the runner at second to third. The runner at second forces the runner at third to home. You only have to tag the runner when a runner that was "forcing" you (from a previous base) is out. In the scenario you have mentioned the only time the third baseman…
