    Passing a runner

    I was just thinking the same thing. I think it happened after it occurred in an MLB game.

    Interference on Batter?

    I get where the separation happened. And it's moot--the same point still stands, since he's a batter, not a runner. INT.

    Interference on Batter?

    Not on a passed ball. Once he has time to react to the play, he must vacate any space necessary to avoid interfering with a throw or player involved in a play.

    Interference on Batter?

    No, he wouldn't have.

    Leave it to Prager to re-normalize white supremacy.

    Batters helmet

    Wasn't there an interpretation this year that they were not allowed because they were not tested as part of the helmet?

    Is the player out

    Coincidentally, you can say the same thing about Full Metal Jacket.

    MLB pitcher "cheat sheet"

    Did it say anything about Jesus being able to hit a curveball?

    That's why I've been married four times.

    I thought the capital of Kentucky was $500.
  11. Judge the fielder, not the ball. This is why we read and react.
  12. One of the privileges granted by the obstruction rule is that if a fielder has the ball in time, he is not liable for obstruction. This is a legal play.

    Is the play dead?

    There's also the issue of not returning immediately to the base...

    Interference, Obstruction, or Nothing?

    Just for the record, I'm not looking to convince anyone of my stance nor saying theirs is incorrect. I find it quite interesting that several competent officials can look at the same thing and see different and contradictory elements.

    Interference, Obstruction, or Nothing?

    I don't even have hindrance at that point. I don't see any adjustment by F4 in response to R1 at any point, in fact. I see R1 adjusting his route once he realizes there could be contact (and at the point he does, it is not OBS,) but F4 seems to be entirely oblivious to R1 until contact.
