I’m going to explain this one time, so listen up. When you get an opposing player in a rundown, the ball should be thrown no more than twice. The first thing you do is throw the ball to the fielder at the forward base (as opposed to the backward base). This fielder runs the runner back. As soon as the runner dives for the base, the ball is thrown. The runner will be put out, as if he were trying to steal the base. The worst thing that can happen if you do it this way is that the runner makes it back to the base from which he came. I just saw the New York Yankees chase a runner home (instead of back to third). He made it safely. Idiots! By the way, my adopted Texas Rangers are ahead, 14-2.
