Foul Tip Steal


Rod from Wisconsin asks:

With one out a hit and run is on but the batter foul tips into the catchers glove. Can the runner steal second base?

Yes, the runner can steal second. On a foul tip the ball is live and in play as long as the ball was fouled sharp and direct into the catchers mitt and he did not drop the ball after the contact with the bat.
