So here's my question, sparked by Taylor's strategy of having the catcher kick the ball to first to counter bunts. If said kick by the catcher hit the runner (not in head or neck) would that make the runner out?
I believe the runner is out, if the ball can bounce off the ground and get you out, there is no way a directed kick cant.
Honestly need a really really good kicker to pull this off. I'm only seen a kicking catcher done by The Others (which was an offshoot of Kick Asphault, who wins the championship on a regular basis). Most of the kicks are to first though, not at a player.
Even then its hard to be accurate. Their catcher messed up the kick when I was batting and it ended up sailing well over my head for an "overthrow" double.
