And I Thought The Due Process Clause Was Confusing

There was a controversial ending to the Angels-White Sox game last night, and if you want to read about it you can do so here. The brohaha was about this rule: A runner who swings and misses on his third strike may try to advance to first base if the catcher does not catch the ball. (Althought the catcher can tag him or throw him out at first base). That may be the oddest rule in baseball.
