  1. Hilarious! But shouldn’t Dickey have been out for being (way) out of the basepath?

  2. I think the great thing is he manages to actually make the throw with decent accuraccy…

  3. The ball didn’t touch him, and nobody was trying to tag him, so no.

  5. The basepath is determined by where the runner has been running, not the chalk. Outs are called when the runner runs perpendicular to the basepath by 3+ feet, as I recall.

  7. Nope that’s only if it affects the play. Seeing as the ball was nowhere near him and he beat the throw anyway, it doesn’t really matter.
