Box Score play by play question


Box Score play by play question

I see this often

Nomo wild pitch; runners advance on ball four.

and am always curious as to the "flow" of it, meaning, if it's ball four, how is it also a wild pitch?

Re: Box Score play by play question

Ball four can be a wild pitch, runners get to advance one base then can advance again at their own rick.

Not all WP count either, if ball 4 with a man on 1st results in just men on 1st and 2nd, it doesn't count as a WP
