  1. No doubt about it. Definitely no need to do that.
  2. I saw this video and while the it is a cool play at the plate I wanted to poll the audience to see what the group thinks about something that maybe only umpires will notice. Spraying the baseballs at the end of a game. Big deal or personal preference? What do you do with the baseballs when the game is over?

    Coach Assist or not?

    NFHS Varsity, NCAA, or Adult OBR R1, B/R singles to CF and F8 overthrows the cut off man and the ball rolls into the infield to the LF side of the mound area. R1 goes full speed from 1B to 3B. 3B coach is standing by R3 who slides into 3B as the ball sails over the cut off's head and rolls into the infield. R3 stands up, takes two steps off of the base in the direction of home plate at which point the 3B coach puts his hand in the center of R3's chest and says "no, no, no...stay here" Coach assist?

    Infield Fly with a hint of Intentional Drop

    Completely agree. People overthink this. No bunt, no line drive. IFF. Keep it simple.
  7. A good test of your rules knowledge on this one.

    Infield fly no-call

    Not a fan. This is exactly why the rule is written.

    Base Award - Ball Thrown Out of Play - Possessed by Catcher

    I think they judged that it was all one continuous action originating from the outfielder's throw. 2 bases from the Time of the Throw would put R1 on third base.

    Base Award - Ball Thrown Out of Play - Possessed by Catcher

    I'm not tracking. To my knowledge is no rule that gives a runner one base on a thrown ball from the outfield. Thrown balls (except from the rubber) are all two base awards. The only thing I believe they were reviewing was whether to give R1 home or not due to F2s actions. Did he possess the thrown ball and the F2 caused it to go out of play which likely would have awarded R1 home or was the reason the throw went out of play because of the Time of Throw from the outfielder. It appears as though they judged that it was from the outfielder's original throw.
