  1. Runners cannot advance. The strike counts. No outs can be called.

    Stretching Routines

    See a trainer. Following a routine published here by a person with unknown training and certification could prove dangerous.

    Batters helmet

    C-Flap. Been around for decades. It will now become popular. LL has the same restriction. Very few are at the moment. I suspect that will be "fixed" over the winter.

    Catcher blocking the plate

    The above all have differences. Many other organizations have their own versions with more variations. People need look it up in the appropriate rule book for their organization

    Catcher blocking the plate

    The obstruction rules. Search on obstruction.
  6. You obviously don't know how to set up the move. You lollygag to lull the defense to sleep.
  7. One thing that happens often in youth ball when there's an R3 is having the walked runner just continue on to 2B. Don't do anything that would stop that.

    Interference??

    Wasn't it really assistance? What did he hinder?

    Defensive conference

    When does the game start? The answer is in the rules: 5.01 Starting the Game (“Play Ball!”) (a) At the time set for beginning the game the players of the home team shall take their defensive positions, the first batter of the visiting team shall take his position in the batter’s box, the umpire-in-chief shall call “Play,” and the game shall start.

    Can the player be suspended

    The question was can the umpires suspend. That morphed to when they can eject. I said until they leave the field You responded that if might extend to the stadium or parking lot. I made a facetious remark asking how they can eject from the parking lot. It IS what you said.

    Yet another Balk question

    Yes if from the rubber.

    Can the player be suspended

    So they can eject a player because they have x-ray vision and can still see the field?

    Can the player be suspended

    Well - if he waits until the umpires have left he can't be ejected. A league may do something after review.

    Is the player out

    The only way he could be hit by a batted ball would be if he didn't know the ball was hit behind him - not likely. And if it was a line drive he thought would be caught he couldn't have kicked it.
