    Baseball began by calling it a "hit and run" play but gave it a 2nd thought because the order of action starts the runner before hitting is possible ... same thing. I suppose intentions are to avoid possible confusion. It makes sense to me but I'm linear. I expect it.

    because it's hard to frisk someone before they have stopped
