  1. 2018 NFHS Exam

    I read this one wrong. There's another one that deals with the coach and coaching box this is not that question. I think the answer they want us to put for this one is: B

    Good question. I think the Federation (different topic for a different thread) doesn't want players going in standing up to avoid getting hit in the face with a thrown ball. "Get down or get out of the way" would be my best guess.

    I think this is pretty easy to get in real time. I think the confusion lies in the "must slide or peel away" portion of the rule. Essentially, as in this clip, if the runner doesn't slide and he alters the play in any way, we need to grab this. This is great clip because there are a lot of myths and misconceptions around FPSR. Great opportunity to learn.

    Thank you for looking into this just a tad further.

    I have no problem with that. It makes it easier for us. Easier is better.

    I didn't hear it that way. I heard it as him reading the rule to us. In this clip I think we have the runner not sliding and altering the play.

    True, but did he hinder F2 or not? Batter didn't have to fall forward either. He could have stepped back. (I haven't seen the video) Keep it simple. There a lot more rule support for grabbing the BI than not. How can we get the video clip?

    We don't need to know the difference between wind up and set until we need to know the difference.

    Inability to legally step and throw to a base from the windup w/o disengaging...would be one reason to be in a legal stretch position.

    I don't know if they take the NFHS test in IL or not. I will be taking the NFHS one when the window opens in our state. Probably a safety reassurance that we all start over.

    There's no rule support the way the question is written for any answer besides "C"
  14. 2018 NFHS Exam

    I will put C, because that is the right answer.
  15. 2018 NFHS Exam

    Thank you. We agree that the answer to this is "C" right?
