Baseball Overthrow

Table of Contents


What is an overthrow?

Fielders do not always make perfect throws. Sometimes, they will attempt to throw the baseball to another fielder, but accidentally throw it too far, causing the baseball to go into the dugout, stands, or another territory that is out of play (NOT including foul territory).

When this happens, the batter-runner and any runners on base are allowed to advance two bases.
