1. True or False? In a tie game with 2 outs, a runner on second should be aggressive and take off for 3rd on a ball in the dirt.
False. You’ll find the details here: https://keepplayingbaseball.org/out-at-3rd/
2. True or False? In an advantage count (like 2-0 or 3-0), a hitter should stick to his plan and not break down his swing, even if he realizes mid-swing that he has misjudged a pitch.
True. You’ll find the details here: https://keepplayingbaseball.org/advantage-count/
3. True or False? Man on first, 1 out, tie game in the bottom of the 8th inning. The runner on first has good speed, and the 7-hitter is at the plate. On a straight steal from first, it is important that the runner keeps his head down and toward second base to make sure he gets to second as quickly as possible.
