Advancing on a Passed Ball Out of Play


John from Massachusetts asks:

If a passed ball goes out of play, does the man on third get to advance to home plate?

Yes! On a passed ball that goes out of play every runner on base is awarded one base. So, in this case, the runner on third would be awarded home.
