    #1 - I choose D, because it could literally go either way on any given play, but umpires will tell you there is no such thing as a tie going to either one. They call it how they hear the two different sounds (ball hitting glove, foot hitting bag) on a bang-bang play. If it's literally a tie they make a judgment call. I wouldn't be surprised though if statistically, a tie goes to the runner a majority of the time. Sometimes though, an umpire knows he missed a call earlier in the game, and in that case he may call the tie play as needed to make-up the mistake. They'll never admit to that though.

    #2 - There's a stipulation in this rule about the number of strikes in the count, but I forget the exacts. So I say C.

    #3 - A

    #4 - B

    #5 - I say B but I'm not 100% positive

    Next one: How many ways can a batter reach first base? (HS and above baseball rules, not little league or softball.)
