From the Clarifications:
"An EP can be a pinch runner for anyone. However our Re-entry Rule would still be in effect. The EP would be considered a substitute for the person they are running so the person who they run for and the EP running will have one more reentry. The EP is now tied to that person and can only pinch run for that person. Once they have used up their re-entry they still may bat and play defense but can no longer be a pinch runner. . "

Example, Annabelle an EP, runs for Beatrice. Later, Beatrice is replaced by Clarissa.

I understand the "person" bolded above to mean a batting order slot, not literally "person".
So, “can only pinch run for that person” does not mean Annabelle cannot run for Clarissa.
Do you agree?
Officiating takes more than OJT.
It's not our jobs to invent rulings to fit our personal idea of what should and should not be.
