    2019 Changes

    Will there be an "epidemic" again? http://baseballnews.com/hit-pitch-epidemic-threatens-game-integrity/ But given the variable judgements using the current rule the change seems to make it easier on the umpire.

    Dropped 3rd strike

    The MLBUM also allows the umpire to judge that a batter "lingering" in the dirt circle has shown no effort to run to 1B and can be called out.

    Home-away uniform.

    I appreciate all your research into the matter. And while a curmudgeon is of the opinion that nobody cares about the rule I do know that it was newsworthy when a player had the wrong jersey quite a few years ago, not that it was a rule violation.

    Fair/Foul bal

    Simplistic answer does serve the OP poster because the gist of his question is where the fielder was. Let’s leave it at that.

    45 ft. running lane violations

    Which they did last night in Dodger-Brewer game 7. Buehler bunted and ran inside the whole way. Easy Peasy.

    Has anyone ever had a 4th out appeal call?

    That’s one “nevermind”. We need one more if you peruse the thread . BTW I’m guilty of at least one “nevermind” in my posting history.

    You Make The Call

    You might have OBS in NCAA this next year also. And, I'm thinking it might be OBS in OBR also depending on whether you judge a legitimate reaction to the hop.

    Has anyone ever had a 4th out appeal call?

    I’m confused. How many outs to start? Doesn’t seem like a fourth out appeal.

    Home-away uniform.

    So is it just protocall as to the grey or white or the wtf color is that as far as H or V go? Not a big deal other than my curiosity. Us amateurs have no problem with discerning two teams with, in the worst case, the logo only.

    Home-away uniform.

    Has the protocol changed in the regular and/or postseason as to what the visiting team uniform will say on the front. It used to be the city but I see Brewers in LA.

    DH Rule ?

    As opposed to the NCAA and OBR DH rule? FED seems pretty simple compared to NCAA and OBR but usually no one pushes the envelope in NCAA and OBR so they seem simpler.

    DH Rule ?

    FED: The DH could also take a defensive position. The DH role is terminated but the player who was the DH still can be in the game. The PO would be on the bench but would have one re-entry in the player's (who was the DH) batting order slot. That player who was the DH would also have one re-entry if he was replaced by a sub.

    Cheatin SOB

    I missed the Astros tag in your post @boyinr But while we take a grain of salt with everything on the WEB, the Astros might be cheatin SOBs also.

    Cheatin SOB

    6 umps and two managers normally will not go there. But I thought the Cheating SOB was funny. If you think it was a profane attack we might have to revisit some other MLB manager ump discussions.

    DH Rule ?

    FED: If the “Pitcher Only” stayed on defense the DH would continue to bat for him. If the PO was put on the bench the DH could bat for whoever came off the bench and replaced the PO at a defensive position. There’s more but you just wanted to know what happens to that spot. The batting order never changes.
