  4. Delayed dead ball balk

    This sounds pretty stupid if you ask me. If you want to have a "warning" system, ok... its your tourney. However, you are going to punish the offense because a pitcher rolled through one? The rule of thumb is that if all runners including the BR advance 1 base you disregard. So why don't you just use that thinking and then warn? So lets say no warninghasbeen issued and a kid no stops.. youcall a balk and the batter hits a double. Just leave the runner @2nd and tell the pitcher that is your warning. If Iwas a coach and that happened to my team, Iwould be watching the rest of the game with binoculars atthe dorms!!

    On all professional fields as well as most good college fields the ground around home is much harder than the infield. MidAm is correct...

  14. Foul Tip Mechanic

    The times I don't use it: Nobody on and less than 2 strikes. Even with 2 strikes and nobody on and and it's a cock shot foul tip straight into the glove I usually give a verbal" he's got it" with an out mechanic. There are absolutely times where it is definitely needed. I think I can get away with it cause I work a higher level and I " have a clue ". Unless you have "nailed" everything else in your game I would suggest you use the foul tip mechanic when it happens. It's like mapping pitches. I do it but I wouldn't recommend it to a guy who is a greenhorn... This is just my .2
