  1. You can continue from where you paused but not from where you stopped.
  2. The rule calls for a stop, not a pause.
  3. Camera angles are much, much better on this play.
  4. Some nice camera angles here to show Runner Lane Interference
  5. To move the discussion forward, it's most likely some sort of DDB mechanic. Outside of mechanics, let's try and keep this focused on the play. So far under strict OBR we have an out for interference. Seems like a pretty good consensus on that piece yes?
  6. I really like this clip. It's probably on here already, but I was looking for some some other interference clips and found this one. So I'm going to post it again and see if it spurs any discussion.
  7. What do you have in this play (if anything), under OBR, FED, or NCAA? I put the video in "Rules" because feedback on all three rule codes will be helpful for all of the umpires who work those codes.
  8. Is there a Malicious Contact/Ejection provision anywhere in straight OBR? In other words, EJ as a result of judged malicious contact. If so, please cite the appropriate rule/interpretation as a part of your discussion. Thanks!
  9. OBR. Bases loaded, B9. Game winning run on 3B. A. Less than two outs B. Two outs Batter walks on ball 4 but does not touch first base, R1 does not touch 2B, R1 does not touch 3B, R3 touches home. What are the base running requirements? What, if any, are the appeal implications in A & B? Discuss and post relevant citations or interpretations.
  10. Keep it civil, keep it on topic. It's that simple.
  11. If it were obstruction, it would be type 2 in this case.
  12. After watching the video, it's almost certain that the thrown ball went out of play. In that moment, there's almost zero chance that everybody stopped due to the OBS, including the reaction of the runner.
  13. Moved to "Professional"
  14. On Saturday, July 16, Force3 Pro Gear president Jason Klein was involved in a plane crash at Hogan Airport in Esperance, N.Y. that injured him and killed three others. Mr. Klein is being treated for his injuries at Westchester Medical Center. The crash is currently being investigated by the NTSB and New York State Police. During this difficult time, please know that all orders will be filled as usual with minimal delay. The entire Force3 Pro Gear family extends heartfelt sympathy to the families and friends of those who perished in the crash.
