Situation, runner on 2nd and the count on the batter is 1-1. There is a passed ball to make the count 2-1 and the batter runs to first and the runner on second advances to 3rd. Then the batter/runner goes to second to trick the catcher to throw to second to get him out and the runner on third advances home on the throw to second. Is this legal?
The Umpire informed us that the batter may run to first on every pitch if he chooses to no matter what.
