Re: Pulling the bat back on a bunt

I don't have the casebook. Does anyone have an NFHS rule?

Re: Pulling the bat back on a bunt

In NFHS, the batter holds his bat still, in a bunt position, and pitch is outside of the strike zone. Strike or not? What's the NFHS rule?

Pulling the bat back on a bunt

OBR is clear, in multiple places in the rule book, that a batter does not need to pull the bat back to avoid being called as having attempted to hit a pitched ball.

But, I don't see it so clearly...

Re: Need help, pitcher's feet

So, Ken, with that wording; couldn't he also, with a runner at 1st base, stand with an open stance - left foot toward 1st?

Need help, pitcher's feet

All game, the right handed pitcher has pitched from the stretch. His left foot is not directly in front of him, in line with the plate, but off to his right. Hard to explain: If you were to draw a...

Re: quick balk question

Hah!! You're right, Ken.

I didn't even norice that. I did write batter instead of pitch on one the posts, didn't I? That's funny. Guess I need to proof-read.

Re: quick balk question

The way you worded your question, could you be picturing a left-handed pitcher in your mind?

Re: quick balk question

Sorry. I must be describing it poorly.

It's a Right Handed batter, going to first from the stretch. So his right foot is engaged to the rubber and his back is to 1st base. His left then steps...

Re: quick balk question

Hi Richard. No, he was in the stretch and, when he stepped toward 1st with his left leg, and made the throw, he simply left his right foot exactly still, right on the rubber, never moving it.

Re: quick balk question

Thanks Rich,

That was exactly the way I called it. However, the Offense wanted a Balk. They were nice enough guys about it, which was great, and they respectfully lived with the no-call, but,...

quick balk question

Right handed Pitcher. Pick of attempt to 1st from the stretch.

Must the pitcher's right foot pivot, raising his right heel up? Or can he, if he's flexible enough, step toward 1st and diliver the...

Retouch after teammates scores?

Hypothetical sitch:

You're the Plate Umpire. There's a well hit ball. R3 scores easily but you notice that he missed the plate. R2 rounds third and heads home for a score, touching the plate...

Re: Overthrow on a tag-up appeal

Richard, we must have been typing at the same time. I hadn't seen your reply when I sent in my last one. Two questions:

Do we really need him to retouch 1st with the ball dead? With a dead ball,...

Re: Overthrow on a tag-up appeal

Fun discission.

I'm in the camp that, with the throw OOP, the Defense lost their opportunity to appeal the tag-up. R1 is awarded 2nd base regardless whether or not he retouches 1st base after the...

Deep hit fly to Left. R1 takes off full speed and rounds 2nd. goes about ten feet. F7 catches and throws to F6 for cut-off. R1 heads back to 1st, touching 2nd as he goes. F6's...

lefty fakes to 1st

Can a lefted-handed pitcher fake to first and then go to third, while engaged to the rubber, the way that a righty can fake to 3rd and throw to 1st?

Re: Groundrule Double or more?

There was no throw. The left fielder, in attempting to catch the batted ball, which had been hit fantastically high, accidentally deflected the ball to the fence. There must have been a gap at that...
