    Let's move past the fact that this is a still photo. Let's also assume that this is a double play ball. What else (if anything) would we need to see in order to call FPSR on this play under the three main rule sets? Also, I have no idea if anything was called on this play. I saw the photo online and I brought it here for us to discuss. Let the discussing begin. :-)

    Unusual FPSR Play

    Yep. That's what I was looking for.

    Unusual FPSR Play

    In this case, had the B/R started to and continued to run the bases and he were hit, he's be okay right? Does the same thing apply in this scenario. While I think we agree that it is not FPSR, but interference. Correct?

    Runner Lane Interference

    So the rule reads that "interference SHALL be called if the throw hits the runner" By rule, under NCAA, are we required to call RLI on this play?

    I'm trying to figure out why it ever matters? Where we live, no team is playing outside. They are all down in Florida, Arizona, Missouri, etc...

    I did some more homework on this play and learned that this play did not result in any rules infractions called on the field.

    2 strikes 1 pitch

    Make the coach prove you were wrong not the other way around. He doesn't care. He just wanted to complain.

    CP under plate coat

    I like the black over the CP. Personal preference.

    Runner Lane Interference

    It's interesting what we debate and what we'd never consider debating... In this case, the rule book specifically reads that if the batter/runner is hit by the thrown ball and he's non compliant, that interference SHALL be called...yet for some reason there is debate. Could you imagine responding to a coach when he asks why you didn't call out R1 for being hit by the batted ball and they proceed to turn a 4-6-3 double play that "it didn't alter the defense's ability to play on the ball?" Just interesting what we debate and why.

    Runner Lane Interference

    Nice find.

    Runner Lane Interference

    From the research I've done, the throw hit the runner who was running illegally out of the running lane and was caught by whomever was covering first base for the out. But the rule reads: "OR the batter/runner is hit by the throw....it SHALL be called interference" There certainly could be different information out there about what happened.

    Plate Umpire Mechanics

    Here is an opportunity to learn from an unfortunate situation so that we can hopefully prevent this in our games. This should be pretty rare in the two umpire system since the PU should be reading that there is not going to be a play at third base. But a great video for learning either way.

    Balk and Catcher Interference on a Steal of Home

    I think we'd still recognize the balk. The pitch would be a "no pitch" since the batter didn't reach base.

    Plate Umpire Mechanics

    I guess the main point is that when we're working 3 or 4 man, we should try to be aware of the fact that a runner is going to be rounding third base hard so instead of going wider, we should consider sticking closer to the foul line. It shouldn't happened in two man because the plate umpire should read that there is no longer at play on his runner at third base and he's going back home.

    MLBUM states the following on when to call time on a balk followed by a wild pitch:

    Skunk in the outfield illegal

    Exactly. This play has been a topic in message boards for as long as I've been involved...which for me is approaching 15 years. I am still curious as to why Bruns picked this moment to issue an interpretation on a play like this.
