Due up 3 - 4 - 5.
4 bats hits a double.
3 bats grounds out - 4 advances to 3rd
5 at the plate 0-1 count when defense recognizes the out of order.
Now since a pitch was thrown I know that 3 is the last legal batter. So due up in the box should be 4 with an 0-1 count. But 4 is standing on 3rd base.
We ended up putting 3 on 3rd, 4 in the box with an 0-1 count. After discussing with my partner and reading the rule, I am sure no out should have been awarded, but not sure putting 3 on 3rd was correct.
Should 5 have remained at the plate?
The kicker ... the defense knew the out of order before 5 got to the plate... but decided to wait till the first pitch because the tournament director told them that was the correct procedure the previous night.
