Discussion: Double Runners to First
In our game a batter requested and got a designated runner. The runner was positioned where he was suppose to be and left once the batter hit the ball. However both the batter and the runner ran to first base. The batter, running down the inner part of the line ran over the white bag (didn't make contact) The designated runner ran down the outer part of the line ran over orange bag (didn't make contact). Is the batter out automatically because both players ran to first? Or because he didn't make contact with anything, is the runner safe at first if he returns and touches the orange bag safely?
Because there was a runner at third, the ball was thrown home. Does that change the scenario? If there were 2 outs and the runner scored safely from 3rd, would his run count if the batter is called out at first because of the double runner?
Where in the Senior Softball rule book can I find the section that deals with the above event?
