Also what's "involved in the play"?I don't know about the third one. It's not like the time between innings has changed. How is the first hitter having been involved in a defensive play different than the defensive player, say the catcher, that has to get out on the field after being on base when the third out was made?
Ball hit up the middle both the SS and 2B run in to the ball. SS gets it and throws to first. 2B ran all the way over to back up in case it got through. 2B leads off next inning. Does he get a little extra time?
I'd be OK with letting the catcher get a little extra time because they actually have to remove all their gear. But a CF who has to move 4 feet to his left to shag a lazy fly ball? Pass.
