When a baseball player get a walk-off home run, do they have to touch home plate for it to count?


What would be a good informative speech about baseball?

a walkoff homerun is like a simple homerun

for any run to count the player must touch the the plate

this also works with other situations

bases loaded

the batter is hit

the batter and every other runner must advance to the next base to get the man on third to the plate

By touching the base the player scores a run

The player must touch the base or home plate

The same things apply when the player hits a homer instead of walking
