Stealing Third on a Dropped Third Strike


Pete Thomas from Ocean Grove, NJ asks:

With less than 2 outs and a runner on 2nd base, the batter strikes out and the catcher drops a 3rd strike. Can the runner still steal 3rd base?

Yes! A dropped third strike is a live ball and the runner is allowed to steal.
