Know the Rules

According to the rule book of Major League Baseball:

Runners advance one base if a pitched ball "lodges in the umpire's or catcher's mask or paraphernalia." Rule 5.09(g)

If there are two strikes on the batter, and a runner steals home, and the pitch hits the runner in the strike zone, the batter is out. The run does not score if there are two outs; if there are less than two outs, it does. Rule 6.05(n)

Pitchers are allowed to switch their throwing arm in the middle of an at-bat, but only if they have injured the other one. If one does, they do not get an opportunity to warm up with the other arm. Rule 8.01(f)


Those are all significant rules, especially if a pitch gets stuck in the catcher's mask after hitting a runner stealing home because a lefty threw with his right arm.

Join us this week as we learn the most important rule of all in life:

Nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

See you Sunday!
