382: Tie

"Oh, come on, ump!" Don rolled his eyes. "Tie goes to the runner. Everyone knows that."

"Is that really a rule?" Charlie blinked.

"What? Rule of the playground, if they get there at the same time he's safe."

"Yeah, but, in the rulebooks. Is it actually written out?"

"Well, probably not, I think they assume that it always goes one way or the other. But Kemp was clearly safe, watch the replay."

"Is there any reason-are fielders supposed to yield? Does it reduce the injury rate?"

Don sighed and looked at the calendar. Hockey season couldn't come soon enough.
