Here’s an easy one for you rule guys…
Your club has the following batting order:
Smith is 1st, Weeks is 2nd, Dune is 3rd, and Welch is 4th.
Your club takes the field for the second inning. Your skipper decides to switch the players on the infield to different positions.
Smith is no longer on first, but is now replacing Welch at shortstop.
Weeks is no longer playing second, he’s replacing Smith at first base.
Dune is no longer playing third, he’s replacing Weeks at second base.
Welch is no longer at shortstop, he’s replacing Dune at third base.
Does each player change their place in the batting order because they replaced another player at a different position? In other words, do they take that placer’s place in the batting order whose position they now have?
