You Are the Scorer
Scenario: It is the bottom of the ninth inning in a tied game and the #8 hitter just drew a two-out walk to load the bases. Instead of the #9 hitter coming up to bat next, though, the #1 hitter strides over to the plate and gets ready to receive the first pitch.
As the official scorer, what should you do about the team batting out of order?
A – Immediately notify the manager of the fielding side.
B – Immediately notify the manager of the batting side.
C – Immediately notify the umpire-in-chief.
D – Keep quiet.
