  1. looked like a bounce to me.
  2. Because the rule says it's a balk.
  3. 6.01(g) (7.07) Interference With Squeeze Play or Steal of Home If, with a runner on third base and trying to score by means of a squeeze play or a steal, the catcher or any other fielder steps on, or in front of home base without possession of the ball, or touches the batter or his bat, the pitcher shall be charged with a balk, the batter shall be awarded first base on the interference and the ball is dead.
  4. You may disagree with the rules but they are what they are.
  5. Last year there was a non-USA athlete that: Took a drug called <name1> where she lived. It was also called <name2> in other countries. It was legal when she took it. It was banned under the name <name2> after she took it and she failed test because it was still in her system. ex post facto ban was not considered a valid excuse and she was suspended.
  6. Yes it's both a balk and CI. Enforce both.
  7. BI?

    The throw was away and clean, then F2 slipped and fell. All before the batter stepped into his path. Look with a cold calculating mind.
  8. Because Elk said: If a player touches a ball on the ground in foul territory, it's a foul ball. I don't see how there could be interference since there can't be a play on the BR. Which is not true. You CAN touch a foul ball and have interference called.

  10. Ll and OBR (Pro) are the same here.
  11. I don't think so. R2 can retreat (not forced here) unless the pitcher had taken his position on the rubber.
  12. Like this: 5.09 A runner is out (9) After hitting or bunting a ball that continues to move over foul territory, he intentionally deflects the course of the ball in any manner while running to first base. The ball is dead and no runners may advance;
  13. True in FED, but not in LL. See the other responses.
  14. There is no penalty. The rule says the umpire shall not put the ball into play until the runners have retouched. So if you did, and they hadn't, it's on you. 5.06(c) (5) A foul ball is not caught, in which case runners return to their bases. The umpire-in-chief shall not put the ball in play until all runners have retouched their bases;
