The baseball rulebook says that you can’t steal a base during a dead ball. However, unlike the hit batter or catcher’s interference situations, after a walk, the ball is live. This means that baserunners who are not forced to advance to the next base can still attempt to do so, at their own risk.

MYTH: LITTLE LEAGUE DOESN’T PLAY “REAL” BASEBALL

Little League rules do not permit a runner to lead off until they are 13 years old (part of the Intermediate Division baseball program). If a runner doesn’t lead off, then there are no balks and no pick-off moves for pitchers.

The slide rule is in effect for all close plays at a base. A player not sliding may be considered out in the judgment of the umpire, and the play is considered dead. Base runners attempting to score must slide at home plate, unless in the umpire’s judgment, contact is not likely without sliding.

The distance across the infield from the back tip of home plate to second base is 127 feet, 3 3/8 inches.

Because a mile is 1600 meters, four laps around one standard running track would equal one mile.

What was the answer? Move the pitchers back another five feet – to 60 feet, 6 inches. That’s what happened in 1893. The pitcher’s box was replaced with a 12-inch-by-4-inch slab, and, as with the back line of the box, the pitcher was required to place his back foot upon it.
