If the bat hits the ball over the net while at the same time the bat is dropped (accidentally) during the swing, is the ball still in play or is this a violation? Secondly, the player can't reach so he intentionally swings and lets the bat leave his hand to reach the ball? Are either of these, or both, situations illegal?
(I am learning much from you guys and enjoying it more than ever. Thanks again!)
The bat has to be in your hand when you hit the ball. If it falls after you hit it then the point continues, but you would need to pick it up again to play the next shot.
Hope this answers the question.
