5 Rules of Baseball-- Quiz 1st week of June

Students,
   Here are the 5 Rules we have been studying for baseball.  Please brush up on them, we will be having a baseball quiz next week (first week of June).

1.  A foul ball is a strike, but not strike 3.
2. Go half-way on a fly ball and run back if it is caught.
3. A runner is forced to run on a ground ball when there are runners on all bases behind them.  If not, the runner has a choice.
4. If a runner is forced to run, just step on the base to get them out.  If they go by choice, just tag them.
5. Always just step on 1st base to get the out (always a force at 1st base).

Ask me if you have any questions,
Mr. Goldstein
