Haha...this made me chuckle:

"A careful reading of official Major League Baseball Rule 6.08(b) suggests that in this situation, the batter would be considered "hit by pitch", and would be eligible to advance to first base."

I love XKCD, I just saw the "what if" section a few days ago and read through all three of them. I can't wait to see what else he posts.

I'll never go to a Tigers game again if Verlander is pitching!
