    From the horses mouth:

    “45 degree rule”

    It's not an unwritten rule in NCAA: "9-1-a-6) The pitcher must step directly and gain ground toward a base in an attempt to pick off a runner. “Directly” is interpreted to mean within a 45-degree angle measuring from the pivot foot toward the base the pitcher is throwing to or feinting a throw."

    NCAA only. If the pitch was in the box freezing would be allowed but that did not happen. The "or if the batter moves to intentionally get hit" happened and was confirmed by video review.

    That's interesting. I wonder if the ejected HC can use a challenge as he's leaving or he told an assistant to do it.

    I think the "or" phrase applied here: "a) If the ball is in the strike zone when it touches the batter, or if the batter moves to intentionally get hit or freezes to allow a pitch that is not within the batter's box to hit him, the ball is dead, it shall be called a strike and the batter is not awarded first base."

    Was that a 7 or 9 inning game? If 7 the PU could initiate his own review. Otherwise who requested the review, the ejected HC or an assistant?

    No a strike is added to the count when the batter intentionally gets HBP. But the HC gets ejected for ignoring the "don't come out" and argue. Did an assistant then ask for video review?

    Ball Stuck in Glove...Lodged?

    A pitch lodged in an umpire's or catcher's equipment is one base. Any other ball is two bases: "8-3-c. two bases if a fair batted or thrown ball becomes dead because of bouncing over or passing through a fence, or lodges in a defensive player's or umpire's equipment or uniform; or if a live thrown ball:"

    Ball Stuck in Glove...Lodged?

    Isn't that still the rule for a ball lodged in a defensive player's or umpire's equipment except that a ball in the glove is not considered lodged?

    Ball Stuck in Glove...Lodged?

    I don't think FED wants to stipulate only a force. I think PA wants to quibble because they don't like the change to how OBR calls it. The new caseplay refers to secure possession. Anything you can do when you have secure possession would be allowed, tag a base, tag a runner. BTW were the spelling errors in your referenced communique yours or PA's?

    Have the PA authorities brainwashed you?

    Ball Stuck in Glove...Lodged?

    If FED is trying to call it the same as OBR then I believe, based upon the BRD, that your two scenarios would be allowed except in PA. I did have a question earlier in the thread about whether the stricter NCAA catch wording would allow this as a voluntary release.

    Ball Stuck in Glove...Lodged?

    If that is an official communique from the PA umpires group I would advise you to comply with it and call it like they want if you see an elder with a glove in such a situaton. And while the pitcher is not permited to throw to another base he would still be permitted to throw to another base:)

    foul ball danger chart

    Just had one whiz by my ear in a scrimmage 2 nights ago. My ear was in the green the ball was in the yellow. The RH batter was over the plate. Go up if you can. Down like Guch if you are real good. Or stay in the green and judge the pitch as it’s caught. Don’t go yellow.

    Runner Lane Interference on a Retired Batter Runner

    Strange, am I correct in recalling a ruling in one or all of the codes that if F3 puts the batter out on a grounder to 1B and throws home, hitting the B-R it doesn't matter if the batter was not in the lane and no INT unless intentional?
