Dave Van Horne (Marlins), Joe Castiglione (Red Sox), Jim Joyce (Ret MLB Umpire)
Jim Joyce made a comment in this segment that I wondered about. On “Too Close to Call” for 300 (catcher’s return throw to pitcher accidentally hits the bat), near the end of Jim’s comments he said that if the throw deflects off the bat into the dugout, all runners get one base (at 24:12 into the video). Why not two bases? This is a thrown ball by an infielder into dead ball area, isn’t it? If there is a special rule covering this, I could not find it.
This was a really fun show to do! Dave Van Horne was the original Montreal Expos PxP announcer (1969) and Joe Castiglione is a radio icon in Red Sox country. They are smart and tell some great stories. Jim Joyce was rated by MLB players as one of the best in the business and he knows his stuff.
