Appeal after Walk-Off Home Run

  • Post
    I had a situation occur in a Pony League (OBR) game I was umpiring this weekend that I wasn’t sure how to handle.

    After a walk-off home run, the defensive team claimed the batter missed second base.  Should I then throw a new ball to pitcher, say “play” and allow them to make the appeal at second base?  My confusion is because normally after a walk-off home run the game is over so I wouldn’t put a new ball in play.

    Any guidance is appreciated.
