Because not all fields have enclosed dugout or a dugout large enough to handle all of the team personnel which usually means there may be an adjacent area designated for team membersI agree with you Comp. I think it was just a matter of pointing out the unusual verbiage. Why not just say “when she enters the dugout”?
why not! they are avoiding an attempted tag. Catcher does not have to keep chasing the BR all the way off the field while other runners may try to advance. If BR is not heading to 1st base and catcher going after her, how is that any different than a runner going fomr 1st to 2nd and avoiding a tag by going more than 3 feet out of the path to avoid the tag?No the batter walking toward the dugout and the catcher choosing to chase after them is not a runner attempting to avoid a tag by going 3' out of their basepath.
