8th Batter Rule - When the 8th batter comes to the plate in any half inning, all play should proceed as though the team at bat has TWO OUTS. This has always been the intent of the rule and it eliminates any confusion as to the status of runners who may be on base at the time. If the 8th batter is out before reaching first base, the half inning is over: Situations have arisen where the teams were uncertain as to the status of runners (e.g., if there was only one actual out when the 8th batter flew out to left with a runner on 3rd, could the runner tag up and score?; or could the runner on 3rd score on a ground out by the batter?). Using the TWO OUT scenario for the 8th batter clears up any and all situations, and allows the teams to play proper situational baseball.
