  1. Defensive Shift and NFHS Question

    Whoops. 2-13. (I don't believe in editing posts that have responses.)
  2. Defensive Shift and NFHS Question

    This is in direct conflict with 2-31.
  3. Defensive Shift and NFHS Question

    Yes, there is. I'll give you a hint--by definition, there are exactly three outfielders.

  5. I would, but they're Half Jackets.
  6. Interference

    I think there are two separate situations being discussed. With R2 and INT on strike three, the BR is out on the INT and R2 returns. With R1 and INT on strike three, the batter is already out and R1 is out on the INT.
  7. Interference

    Your previous statement was a situation where he was not BR, but a retired offensive player. Thus, R1 is out for INT (the runner being played on.)
  8. Interference

    This is starting to feel like deja vu all over again.
  9. Because that is for a runner failing to return immediately after overrunning or oversliding.
  10. NCAA Exam Thread

    No, you can't have type 2 in a rundown.
  11. Passed Ball

    As long as he did not contact the ball, this is the same as any other third-strike situation, so yes.
  12. baseball 'look back'

    If the initial collision was intentional, that changes things...a lot.
  13. baseball 'look back'

    What does "pretty much" mean? Was there any intent? When did the collision happen with regard to all the other elements?
  14. baseball 'look back'

    I don't think there's enough information to make a decision. Depending on when and how the collision between BR and F3 occurred and the aftermath, it could be anything.
  15. NCAA Exam Thread

    Look at the note in the rule you posted.
  16. Neoprene Sleeve

    I think people are making this too complicated. 1. A pitcher's neoprene sleeves must be covered by an undershirt. 2. Any undershirt must have sleeves approximately the same length. Therefore, if there's an undershirt with same-length sleeves, and no sleeve visible underneath them, he is good to go. He can wear zero, one, or two neoprene sleeves.
  17. NCAA Exam Thread

    The NCAA's addition of the voluntary release clause is what confuses people. There doesn't have to be voluntary release; what that clause means is that if there is, the fielder has maintained control of his body and the ball and it is always considered a completed tag.
  18. NCAA Exam Thread

    Question #3 Video How would you rule on this play? a. Obstruction against a runner on which a play is being made. Immediate dead ball. b. Type 2 obstruction. Keep the ball alive until play has ceased. Then call “Time” and award bases. c. Runner intentionally tried to draw an obstruction call by reaching out to touch a fielder who was not obstructing him. Ball is alive. It's a rundown, so B is not the answer. I was pretty sure C is incorrect by rule, but now I'm not sure.
  19. NCAA Exam Thread

    I get what you're saying. I just don't think this is an example of a legal block (at least for the reasoning given in the question.)
  20. NCAA Exam Thread

    The video is irrelevant. Look at the question, and what the answer is to that question.
  21. NCAA Exam Thread

    That catcher was there well before the ball got to within 60 feet, and the throw was not to the 3B side of home. I had this as an illegal block.
  22. Batting out of order

    You either got it or are really lucky.
  23. Does that mean on the ground or in the air?
  24. Altering the play is irrelevant to this type of interference. It's INT if the BR contacts a fair ball while not legally in the box, or nothing if he is. The problem is defining the moment when he is no longer in the box.
