  1. Enforcing the coaches box rule

    I meant this (same in LL - different number): 6.04 Unsportsmanlike Conduct (a) No manager, player, substitute, coach, trainer or batboy shall at any time, whether from the bench, the coach’s box or on the playing field, or elsewhere: (3) Call “Time,” or employ any other word or phrase or commit any act while the ball is alive and in play for the obvious purpose of trying to make the pitcher commit a balk.
  2. Plate Umpire Interference

    There is no option
  3. Enforcing the coaches box rule

    Complain about the "induce a balk" rule, not the coach's box rule. Coach's boxes are routinely ignored by all teams.
  4. Interference, Obstruction, Nothing

    Used forearm. Definite shove.
  5. Little League Pitch Limit Overage

    . .
  6. Little League Pitch Limit Overage

    So no one else uses pitch counts?
  7. intentional walk little league

    Two. The base coaches. Max of three adults may participate and occupy a dugout spot - specifically, the manager and the two coaches listed on the official roster. Making one a base coach does not mean someone else can com into the dugout when the coach is at a base. There must always be one of the three in the dugout. You can have someone outside keep your book.
  8. intentional walk little league

    It's a minimum of four pitches. If you want to bump up the pitch count swing at two of them to make them strikes and get the count to 6.
  9. intentional walk little league

    It is fair because the same rules apply across the board.
  10. intentional walk little league

    You are confusing the scoring rules with the mandatory play rules. It is an AB for mandatory play but not in the scorebook/statistics.
  11. Inadequate pitching

    And it also it includes only once through the order.
  12. Little League Pitch Limit Overage

    Official book is up to the league. There is no rule. The rest of what you said is good advice. There IS a rule that an official pitch counter be in place.
  13. Balls/Strikes: How much do you tolerate

    High/Low is really easy to see from the dugout. Take that into consideration if you're getting it from both sides.
  14. Causes for MLB Umpire ERAs

    No. It's info the bookies would use in setting odds.
  15. Balk or Not

    Not in LL majors and lower. It's legal there.
  16. Baseball Umpire

    Rosebud was in the test?
  17. Runners advancing on throw into dugout

    It wasn't the first play. I think t's TOT.
  18. LL mound visits

    He's wrong.
  19. Runners advancing on throw into dugout

    Award is two bases from where the runners were physically positioned at the time the throw left the fielders hand. Right call. Grandpa is incorrect, even by the mythical 1+1 rule.
  20. Foul or Fair Ball?

    " . . touches the ground after . ." FED can't even write it logically.
  21. Foul or Fair Ball?

    What if is doesn't touch the ground? Batted ball hits 1B and is then gloved by F3. Ump says foul. Did not touch the ground after it was declared foul. Then what?
  22. Foul or Fair Ball?

    It's fair by rule because it touched the base.
  23. Stealing home with a foul ball

    The coach is thinking of the horrors of R3 getting hit with the bat or a line drive and devising the punishment for whichever one missed the sign.
  24. Stealing home with a foul ball

    No. Back to 3B. Really stupid on someone's part.
