  2. Michigan Vanderbilt game 1, CWS, ninth inning, 2nd batter, a great example of game management by U1.
  3. And risk losing the travel ball player on his rec team!?

    Interference?

    Agree...and the rule certainly seems to privilege the fielder, even if R1 did exactly what he needed to do and F4's being slow and awkward in fielding the ball led to his being hindered.
  5. There was an MLB game earlier this year where the pitcher was called for a balk for throwing to the first baseman who was playing in position (not holding the runner). I believe the throw went to the fielder, not the bag, though I could be wrong. Probably no help here.
  6. Hrbek pushed Gant who was not off balance.
  7. It is near impossible to say without seeing it. But that bolted part above indicates a strong possibility of interference ...

    Interference?

    It was an 11/12 LL all star scrimmage. I was on board with the BU's "nothing" call for the reasons you say - R1 didn't hinder or impede F4 as much as F4's attempt to field the ball was slow and poorly executed. He likely would have missed the ball anyway. Thanks for the help thinking this through.

    Interference?

    IF F4 was late and R1 had no bearing on his ability to field the ball, it's nothing. I don't think you said what level - that could matter as to how much leeway you give the runner to 'hinder or impede".

    Interference?

    RI stopped to avoid being hit by the batted ball. F4 stopped because he saw R1...although it would be fair to say F4 was late to the party, the ball was by R1 and F4's angle to it made the chance of fielding it cleanly unlikely. Agree that it would be a lot easier to judge if you were able to see it. I guess what I'm asking is whether all of this (R1's stopping, the ball being by him, F4's route to the ball being off course and late) doesn't matter and only the matter of "hindered or impeded" does.

    Balk or no balk?

    I’ve seen it work. As a matter of fact I saw it work this year in a varsity high school game. R1 started on initial movement and got caught. He gets tagged, looks at me and says” Isn’t that a balk?”
  12. So the consensus is no balk. I told you I could be persuaded

    Interference?

    Sounds like something we would have to see. Did R 1 deliberately stop to hinder F4? Did F4 stop because R1 was in his way of cleanly fielding the ball.? Real hard to say without seeing it.

    Interference?

    R1 and R2, one out. Batted ball grounded about a third of the way between 1b and 2b. R1 stops to avoid being hit by the ball, then restarts toward 2b. F4 arrives to field the batted ball as R1 restarts, stops, and allows the ball go into RF. The ball was clearly past R1 by the time F4. No contact occurred. The defense claims interference. BU rules it's nothing. Wondering how those here would see this.

    Pickoff throw to F3 who is playing in

    Ive tried a couple times to get a copy of the famous Jim Evans balk video and cant find it anywhere. Ebay, google, youtube, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get a copy of this legendary film?
  16. Looking for Wilson wrap around pads in doeskin
  17. I have concerns with all "RIM's" . By their own "disclaimer"? on page 2 of the RIM. Especially the first > and the last sentence under NOTE:
  18. Ohio has its own manual now, so I have not seen the FED manual (they don't even send it out anymore). But I'm glad that you prevailed: the pro mechanic is not suitable for HS varsity, much less sub-varsity and non-scholastic ball played under FED rules. I suspect that the pro mechanic might create more problems than it solves, but I lack standing (to use the legal phrase) to have an official opinion about it.
  19. Yesterday
  20. In past years we used to use LL RS-T for majors and below and Senior LL RS-T baseballs for intermediate and above. But I don’t see any requirement other than RS-T. Are LL RS-T allowed in Intermediate and above?
  21. Sounds like a two-base error. That is scored as a single error against F5 but accounts for the BR reaching 2B. The additional two bases are scored as fielder's choice.

    Balk or no balk?

    Also once saw Turk Wendell pull it off twice in one game.
  23. After trying it out, eventually decided I didn't like the fit enough to keep using it--I could never get the chin pad in a comfortable position for me. So, here it is for yous guys. It's never taken a shot with me and according to the previous owner (only a few games), also never taken a shot with him. I've worn it for three games. Asking $150USD (or $205CAD) plus shipping. If you're local to the Toronto area, I'm willing to meet up and swap cash for mask as well. Will include the carrying bag, which I bought specifically for this.
