Q1: The rules of baseball state that a batter Legally Completes His Time at Bat when he is put out or becomes a base runner. Which situation below is the best example of a batter Legally Completing His Time at Bat?

A The pitcher throws his famous knuckleball, Joe swings and misses, and the umpire calls a strike.

B Jared's blooper over the head of the short-stop puts him in scoring position.

C The count is two balls and two strikes as Mario waits for the next pitch.

D The umpire calls a strike, even though the last pitch was way outside.

ANS:A - Jared's blooper over the head of the short-stop puts him in scoring position.

The fact that Jared is in scoring position due to his blooper indicates that he has hit the ball and is now a base runner; therefore, he has legally completed his time at bat. Choices b and c both describe situations in which a strike is called, but they do not state that the batter has been put out or that he is now a base runner. Choice d describes a situation in which the batter, Mario, is still at the plate waiting for the next pitch.
