    You should be aware that in OBR, semantically, a tie does go to the runner at !B and any forced base. Practically speaking, @BillKen is correct.

    #1, In retrospect you are probably right that you should have not balked the first instance. OBR changed the wording for just such an occurence:
    "If after the pitcher starts his windup or comes to a “set position” with a runner on, he does not
    go through with his pitch because the batter has inadvertently caused the pitcher to interrupt his delivery,
    it shall not be called a balk. Both the pitcher and batter have violated a rule and the umpire shall
    call time and both the batter and pitcher start over from “scratch.”"

    Don't know about softball but Wendelstedt says a bounced pitch that then is hit sharp and direct to the catcher's glove or hand and is then caught is a foul tip.

    Yes it's a time play. Being "doubled off" is not a force. It is an appeal play of the runner not tagging up on a caught fly ball.

    Voluntary release is not required when a base is tagged for a force.

    Read the OP again. You are correct that it is a time play. The run does score.

    I would have been in Deep B instead of C as Cuzzi was. Better look.

  11. Jimurray added a post in a topic You guys ever heard of this mechanic?   

    That's how I will do it. But I have seen MLB umpires gesture to 1B with an open palm. No mistaking what they were asking.

    If no warning was given the manager is not ejected. The pitcher is still removed after pitching to the batter. PBUC and/or MLBUM rerefence this. There is an "ignore" in the instructions which is what McCleland probaly wanted to hang his hat on.

    Sidebar: It appears the post now is rated 0. The ratings and sort by ratings as default should go away IMHO.

  14. Jimurray added an answer to a question Balk or no balk   

    The OP needs clarifying but I think what he is describing is a balk. But, in a move to 1B, a RHP can step toward 3B with his pivot foot provided that he makes a legal step toward 1B with his free foot and the move is continuous. (jab step).

    If this was a RHP with R1 and R2, the step back toward 3B was what's called a "jab step" and is not a legal disengage but is part of a legal motion to then step with the free foot and throw to 1B. If that didn't happen it would be a balk unless the umps perceived the pivot "back" foot as landing completely behind the rubber and being a legal disengage.
