Interference or not?

OBR, R1 & R2.
F3 is playing up on the grass in anticipation of a bunt. R1 has a pretty good lead.

Batter hits a laser right at R1. It's 6-8 feet to the left of F3 who has no chance at it - he...

Re: Is there a penalty and who's still eligible to play?

That's what I was thinking at the time but upon further review I wasn't sure if I had indeed warded off the illegal sub since he was on the mound warming up. Had he been eligible, he would have been...

Is there a penalty and who's still eligible to play?

OBR (but it's high school teams so they're used to having a re-entry rule).

#6 is pitching and in about the 3rd inning, #10 pinch-hits for #6.

After that half-inning the coach tells me he's...

Balk or not?

OBR, R1, left-handed F1.
After taking signs from the stretch, F1 begins to go to the set position. Hands come together but without/before coming to a discernible stop, he steps toward 1B with his...

Obs, Int, Neither?

R1, R2, 2-outs. Runners take off on the pitch. B5 hits medium-weak grounder to F5. F5 is positioned directly in the baseline 3-4 feet from the bag, and ready to make the play. Ball and R2 arrive...

Re: Balk or okay?

What's the motion to pitch? Is it merely raising the non-pivot foot?

Re: Balk or okay?

I had one of my kids do it and videos are posted. I'm pretty sure this is how the kid did and described it.

Balk? Why/why not?

Re: Why "Kiddie" Ball

1. Because I love the game and being on the field. I don't schedule much kiddie-ball in advance but when a time comes that the local rec league needs someone and I'm available - I'm there.

2. ...

Re: Balk or okay?

a) "slow" still gets the ball to F3 within a couple seconds. R1 was about half-way to 2nd, maybe a bit further. F3 to F6 in plenty of time, easy tag out. It's a 13 year old kid running, not a...

Re: Balk or okay?

So I had a chance to talk to the kid and his coach (my kid was playing on a different team in the tourney) and I had them explain and show me the move up close. He said he only does it with runners...

Balk or okay?

13u game, FED rules. R1, R3. (13u game so R1 is almost certainly stealing)
RHP comes set, lifts non-pivot foot straight up and in one smooth motion he rotates to his left on his pivot foot, steps...

Re: Continuous Batting Order Situations

But, the CBO rule required that all players be in the batting order so we really can't have a sub or a player out of the game (except illness or injury).

So, the original lineup was illegal, or at...

Re: Continuous Batting Order Situations

Yes, wouldn't it be nice if their special rule sheets covered the situations. Unfortunately they don't. Normally just a one-sentence statement something like "Teams will use round-robin batting...

Continuous Batting Order Situations

Most youth tournaments (14u & younger) around here (Wisconsin) require teams to use a CBO. I witnessed a few situations this year that had me thinking pretty hard about how I would have ruled. The...

Interference?

Question pertains to both Baseball & Softball at the highschool level. The rules are written a little different but I believe the application would be the same.

Thanks guys, looks like I blew that one - I'll get it right next time.

BTW, Gabby's response included the phrase "...for this level". Is there a level or rule set where this would not be...

Interference?

HS JV game. R1 stealing. RH B2 swings at a pitch way up and away (probable hit and run call). What appears to be natural momentum from swinging at such a pitch causes him to step across the plate...

Re: Who's call at third?

So am I misunderstanding the FED manual or is it non-credible? (and I'm not being a smart a$$, it's an honest question.)

Who's call at third?

2-man mech. HS JV game. R1. I am PU.

R1 steals on the pitch, throw from F2 looks like a good one and a close play looks imminent. Partner is right on top of it but F4/6 doesn't make the play...

double play?

Small field 10u ball. R1, less than 2 outs.
BR hits grounder to F3 who fields it cleanly.
Clueless R1 (remember, he's 9) never leaves the bag.
F3 tags him and then steps on 1st.

Double play...

Do you let the kid play?

Batter attempts to bunt and the ball shoots straight up and (from my angle) appears to hit him right in the upper lip. He drops to the ground and lies motionless for...

Re: OBS?

I certainly don't disagree with that. I actually don't dispute any of what you've said. You're one of the most credible guys who posts on these forums and are normally spot-on with your analysis.
