That will be the interesting part. Taking the deuce is most likely, but not absolute. If a run scores on the play, especially after 6.5 innings, accepting the traditional penalty may be more prudent depending on the game and circumstance.

Agree. I can think of any number of game situations where factors such as inning, score, runners on base, who the offense has at bat, etc. affect the DC's decision to accept the result of the play or the traditional penalty.

And that's why it's an option rather than a prescribed alternative.
