Start of the game. Two batters in on deck circle. The wrong batter comes to bat first. She gets a hit on first pitch. Other batter comes up to bat. She gets a hit on first pitch. Coach comes out and says the last two batters were out of order.

What batter(s) are out? Who is the next batter?

Let me restate.

B1 is due up.
B2 comes to bat.
B2 is HBP & goes to first.
B1 comes to bat.
B1 is HBP & advances to first.
Defense appeals BOO.

Once the pitch was thrown to B1, B2's at bat became legal and the next legal batter became B3. So B1 only is now BOO.

B3 is out.
B1 is removed from the base; B2 returned to 1B.
B4 due up.

Speaking ASA

If I understand this: B2 bats first, B1 bats second.

#1, Which coach notified you? If the offensive coach, it is nothing at this point.

#2 If the defensive coach, B3 is out, B2 is sent back to 1B and B4 is the batter with one out.

Not true. What you have is a VERY STUPID coach.

No that is wrong, the offensive team can not appeal batting out of order, only the defensive team.

Which is exactly what the previous two posts point out.

Because the pitch to B1 legitimized B2's at bat making the proper batter B3, since B1 batted in B3"s spot, B3 is called out, B1 is removed from base and B2 is returned to 1st and B4 is the next batter with 1 out.

If the defense had appealed before the pitch to B1, then B1 would have been called out, and B2 would have been removed from 1st and she would bat again.
