Stealing Home on a Hit By Pitch?


Tim from Michigan asks:

If the pitch hits the batter, can a base runner on 3rd steal home?

No. As soon as the pitched ball hits the batter the ball is dead, the batter is awarded first base, and no runners can advance until the plate umpire puts the ball back in play.
