Getting Doubled Up on a Popped Up, Foul, Bunt


Chuck from California asks:

The batter bunts with 2 strikes and it heads foul but is caught in the air. Can a baserunner be doubled off?

Yes! If a batter pops up any bunt and a fielder catches it the runners are required to retouch their bases and can advance at their own peril, even if the bunted ball is caught in foul territory with 2 strikes.
