BOO Situation

This came up in our FED game a couple of days ago. B6 makes the final out of the third inning for the home team. I the fourth inning B8 leads off instead of B7. The defense completes a 1-2-3 inning on B8, B9, B1. B2 leads off the fifth inning and draws a walk. Could the visiting coach appeal at this point for B2 to be called out for batting out of order or has that opportunity already passed at this point.

Once a pitch was thrown on B9, B8's at bat was "legitimized." B9 is the proper batter and it's too late now for the defense to (properly) appeal. B7 is just skipped.

Thanks for the quick reply. If the appeal had been made before the first pitch to B9 would B7 have been called out as well as the out on B8 standing?

Similar thing happened yesterday, Reds vs Mets.

B1 strikes out. B3 strikes out. Once the next pitch is made, B3's AB is legitimized. B2 should be skipped and B4 should be at the plate. Instead, B2 doubles. BOO appealed. B4 is out. Second inning starts with B5 correctly at the plate.

No. B7 (the proper batter) would be out and B8 would return to bat.
