    Runner Lane Interference

    I see what you are getting at. You would not expect a throw hitting the B-R still being caught for an out. But it might have in the OP and NCAA is saying it's should have been RLI.

    Spin move question

    I've always called that a "jab step" not a "spin" move. The reference to spin being illegal is from 6.02(a)(3) comment:....."If a pitcher turns or spins off of his free foot without actually stepping or if he turns his body and throws before stepping, it is a balk." But the MLBUM specifically allows the jab step toward 3B while stepping with the free foot to 1B.

    Runner Lane Interference

    Or maybe F3 gloved the throw and they got the out? Maybe NCAA was just using this for training?

    Runner Lane Interference

    I'm not sure the ball hit the runner but it would be RLI if he hindered the fielder's opportunity to field the ball which I think is what NCAA says happened in this case and RLI should have been called. It's on the NCAA arbiter site in Video Bulletin #3.

    NFHS Rules question

    Wouldn't this work: "2.5.1 SITUATION E: The batter hits the ball, drops the bat and it unintentionally hits the ball a second time in (a) fair territory and is either touched by a fielder and/or comes to rest in fair territory; (b) foul territory and is either touched by a fielder and/or comes to rest in either fair or foul territory; or (c) fair territory and is either touched by a fielder and/or comes to rest in foul territory. RULING: In (a), the ball is fair. In (b) and (c), the ball is foul."

    NFHS Rules question

    The ball hit the bat. Play the bounce.

    Balk and Catcher Interference on a Steal of Home

    Not sure who called it but there's a possible no stop or speed up of delivery, either of which I wouldn't have. But the pitcher normally holds the stop longer than he did in this play. They apparently acknowledged that balk and kept the batter at the plate with 0-0. So they didn't recognize the CI as has happened before when stuff like this happens. I think I recall two triple steals where the batter backed out and no CI was called while the catcher, in my opinion, committed CI. Luckily R3 was safe in both so no harm no foul. Off topic if you watch the game the previous batter had a no call on a check swing that might have gone the other way. I don't know how I got there and whether you would have to have a cable subscription that allows the SEC network but this link got me the game and you can go to the top of the ninth: http://www.secsports.com/video/event/_/?airingId=f47af168-6284-4092-a24e-8bdd0a7d0a5a&replayId=740f446f-3b90-4941-b4aa-6c6e07be087d

    Ball 4 Balk

    He gets to try to drive in a run again. Good for his stats.

    2 strikes 1 pitch

    How did the batter delay the game if a pitch was delivered? Most of us are going to stick with one strike.

    Unusual FPSR Play

    Using OBR logic, once the runner stopped running the bases normally he would be guilty of INT. Once he peeled off he was at risk.
  11. Jimurray


    But that would not comply with the reason why they made the change to the OBR wording: "5-8-d Added Note simplifying administration of last half-inning winning runs. 52" Except they did leave out the OBR guidance on what to do if the BR did not advance. So your guess is as good as mine.
  12. Jimurray


    That was the case but they changed to how OBR calls it in 2017 I think. But what they didn’t do is clarify what the ump should do if the BR doesn’t go to 1B. In OBR we tell him to advance and call him out if he refuses. That’s what I would do in NCAA also but some disagree and want it to be appealed.
  13. Jimurray


    OBR the run scores. Only BR and R3 must advance and they did. NCAA is the same. NFHS the miss must be appealed and if ruled out the score remains tied.

    Multiple appeals

    Anything that happens during continuous action created by the batted ball does not preclude a formal appeal once the action ends.

    Multiple appeals

    Bolded is a good idea but not required. But a really good idea.
