Thread: Base/Out State

    Base/Out State

    I have a question in regards to a base/out state. There is are two runners on base (1st and 2nd) and two outs. The batter hits a double and both runners score, however as he rounds the base, he slips and then gets tagged out. The starting state is 2 outs, runners on first and second. Is the end state 3 outs with two runs scored?

    Yes if they both scored before he was tagged.

    Ya both scored before he was tagged. So the ending base/out state is 3 outs with two runs scores?

    Yeah but I have no idea what "state" means or why you're using that term. If you just mean, that's the end result, then yes. Is that some kind of strato-mingo lingo?

    The "state" of outs and who is on base is what helps determine the leveraging and henceforth the win/run expectancy or even WPA of the baseball event.

    Apparently the batter needed to "leverage" some coordination
