We've already learned about the kicker and what it means for a team to be at-bat (on offense). We also learned about the various types of kicks that kickers can make and the stances they can take in the kicking box. But what happens next? What happens after the kicker makes contact with a pitch?
We have already how kickers can draw a walk, also known as a base-on-balls in Chapter 5.4: Kickball Walks. When a walk occurs, the kicker immediately becomes a baserunner on first base. Now, let's learn what happens if a kick is made.
Kicker To Kicker-Runner To Baserunner
There are many outcomes to a kicker making contact with the kickball. If the kickball is kicked into fair territory, the play can either result in the kicker being put out or reaching base safely. If he is ruled safe on-base by a referee, he will become a baserunner.
