Yappi will become famous soon enough
I kind of hate to ask this question but it was a debated play in a recent fall ball game.

Runner on second. He gets a great jump stealing 3rd. Pitcher hits the batter. Runner was within 20 feet of 3rd base when the ball hit the batter.

Does the runner have to go back to 2nd or does he get 3rd because it can be assumed that he would have easily made it?
