Courtesy Runner for Catchers: If the catcher is on base and there are two (2) outs a courtesy runner may be used so the player can put their equipment on regardless of which base they are on. This is an option for your catcher and does not need to be exercised.

     Courtesy Runners: A courtesy runner is used to run in place of the batter who must safely reach first base on their own. A courtesy runner is not permitted if the player reaches 2nd or 3rd base, unless there is an injury during play. The courtesy runner must be the last out of that inning (or last at bat if zero outs). The need for a courtesy runner should be noted prior to the start of the game or if a player is hurt during the course of a game.
