Who Can Call Time Out?
Many players and coaches don’t know who has the authority to call time out. You mostly see it at the amateur level, but it also happens in MLB. After a play where the runner slides into a base, he pops up, raises his hands to call time out, then steps off the base to brush off the dirt. Is time out called in this circumstance? Can he be tagged out? Chris Welsh and Ted Barrett set the record straight in this short instructional video.
