    Assisting Runner on Dead Ball

    Thanks. That is pretty much how I was leaning. At least the NCAA interpretation. Nice to see it in black and white.

    Assisting Runner on Dead Ball

    From the 2016 BRD (section 310, p. 207): Interference By: Coach: Assists Runner During: Dead Ball OBR: No provision. Treat as in NCAA. NCAA: Official Interpretation: Paronto: There is no coach’s interference during a dead ball unless the coach’s actions provide an advantage for the offensive team. (e-mail to Childress, 12/21/11) FED: Contact, even physical assistance, by a coach with a home run hitter who is advancing on a four-base award is legal. (3.2.2A) Play: R1 tries for third on B1’s single, but F9’s throw goes dead. R1 rounds the bag (he will be awarded home) but does not touch it. The coach grabs R1 by the arm and yells: “Go back and touch third.” Ruling: At all levels, there is no penalty.

    The "penalty" part of the rule says, "The warning or ejection shall be made at the end of playing action."

    Why wait until he crosses the plate? You can eject him immediately and he can still run the bases.
  8. 2B Umpire Jerry Meals ejected Yankees Manager Aaron Boone (Replay Review decision that overturned 3B Umpire Marty Foster's HR call to a fan interference out; QOCY) in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Royals-Yankees game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), Yankees batter Gleyber Torres hit a 1-1... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]] View the full article

    Catch or no Catch

    I would guess not. Think he is just merely showing a HS field that has sunken dugouts. My personal takeaway... it's good to play at Huntington Beach HS! Look at that thing!
  10. I dont recall having BR having closed bases?

    Feel like when they released the BB2000 chest protector it was the beginning of the end.
  12. OBR: Batter hits home run out of park. He misses 3rd base during his trot and the 3B coach pulls him back to touch the base. Can he be called out even if the ball is dead?

    As soon as he crosses the plate he's ejected, unsportsmanlike conduct, plain and simple.
  14. This is my first year working Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken with the special 60ft running rules. I understand that when the bases are loaded if a runner leaves early no run can score when the ball stays in the infield (if the batter reaches, we remove the runner on 3rd with no out and no run). But, what is the shortstop throws the ball out of play. If I were on a field, I would rationalize that the error means the batter gets more than one base - so the runners would as well (basically they can go as far as the batter much like a ball hit to the OF). I would put batter on second, R1 to 3rd and score two runs. Is this right?

    Babe Ruth FPSR question

    The 2019 Babe Ruth Book is pretty much a copy and paste of old OBR (before they changed the numbering and format). As such, there is no bona fide slide section. But, they still have the 6.05(m) which says any runner is out if the preceding runner intentionally interferes with a fielder attempting to throw a ball to complete the play. I would use the provisions of the new bona fide slide rule to gauge whether there was interference in this case. Not sure if this is black letter correct, but it not too much of a stretch.

    Catch or no Catch

    So do they modify the FED rule and not allow one cleat on the lip and one on a lower step as a ground rule?

    It wouldn't get that far. The next batter is getting one in the ear hole if you don't stomp on this situation right now.

    NFHS - Ejected coach; where must he go?

    I don't disagree. There is very much a passive aggressive approach to young umpires - and that needs to be rooted out an punished..harshly. If for no other reason than to keep those umps in the game. In my experience though, the "adult" coach is really trying to assert authority over the younger ump...not necessarily questioning their ability due to their age (though it does happen). The argument is for the next call and it's an act of manipulation, not derision. Believe me, though they'll never admit it, those particular coaches WANT that young ump ("you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall")...because they think they can control a younger ump...and then they have a ready-made excuse if they lose. I have heard some coaches and parents immediately question an ump's age, but I'm finding that more the exception (at least the explicit component)...but I've also seen many younger umps do their jobs effectively and without incident...receiving no more grief than an experienced ump. Frankly, for me, I get more frustrated with the old-timers...the ones who "should" know better, and don't. The younger umps I can easily forgive mishaps to experience. I also am able to check my ego at the gate and not feel the need to have an ump doing my bidding. I have seen 16 year old umps very effectively call men's league games in both baseball and fastpitch. MOST coaches/players, in my experience, will treat umpires on a meritocracy...they don't care if you're old, young, black, white, male, female, gay, straight - you're either good at your job or you're not...and you either want to get better or you don't.

    I would eject and here is why his next at bat the other team is putting one in his back and that can get real ugly real fast.

    That would be a violation of NJ's sportsmanship code which deems taunting, baiting, berating, or any actions that may cause ridicule or embarrassment to an opponent as ejectionable offenses.

    LLWS

    @Vegas_Ump, there is a GREAT video from Black and Blue Umpire Camps (it's on Facebook) with Adam Dowdy instructing, talking about taking plays at the plate. The main reason I bring this up, is that he talks about NOT starting point of plate for plays at the plate. Instead, starting 3BLX and adjusting from there. He states "since this is where you want to be to start, why start 2-4 steps away from that starting point." Or something along those lines. As for PB/WP. The whole 3BLX thing has to go out the window. You are just trying to not get into anyone's way. If you end up 3BLX, great! But it isnt a necessity.

    In regard to 1blx vs 3blx. All the training I have had says that as a play at the plate develops, start at the point-of-the-plate and move around to the 3blx with the idea that your chest should be square to the catcher's mitt at least initially. You then have to move to your angle position based on where the throw is coming from. But you have to see the mitt, the plate, the runner's foot, and the ball. That having been said, I recall my days when I was starting out as an umpire on 60' fields that had a backstop very close to home plate. There really was no time to get around to 3blx on a PB/WP unless the ball was pinging around towards the sides. (Then R3 had an easy score anyway.) In fact, guys who tried to get to the 3blx might actually block a throw from F2 to F1 covering! Point is, you developed a lot of bad habits that are not consistent with the training provided because of the time factor on a small field. Move to a larger stadium, and you will have a ton of time to get around. You are just not used to it. Just an opinion. Mike Las Vegas
