    Walk off balk

    I saw this live. I had a balk. I saw a stop, then movement of the hands and legs before the stepoff. I'd like to think I get this in a Varsity HS game. That said, I've seen plenty of "lower level varsity" (NJ doesn't officially have rankings of HS divisions) ,where I'd let this go without a second thought.

    No. It was just EVERY foul ball. Seemed he couldn't throw a new ball to F1 without ripping off the mask. However, as stated, a real solid plate job.

    Friday's games were the first I saw this year, but he was indeed one of the best I've seen including the regionals..

    I don't like to nit pic..This guy's doing a nice job. But the mask thing and bellowing out "FOUL" on the balls straight back are wearing on me.

    Carl Ravitch no better..I guess it only hit his hand..If it hits his hand and then the bat it's a foul ball".
  6. Only by some...applauded by many. That's because Harper is a cocky SOB and generally acting like a douchebag in his rookie season.

    This too, seems to say they're aligning more with FED. Guess it will depend on the actual wording, and interps, as noumpere has stated.

    Problem with Force 3 shins

    I haven't had this problem, but give them time and game action. They will form to your shin as time goes on, perhaps the knee pad will as well.

    To be considered in a wind-up position, a pitcher must stand with his chest and shoulders generally facing the batter, with the pivot foot on or in front of and touching the pitcher’s plate. The pitcher’s free foot must be touching or be behind the plane of the front edge of the pitching plate. Wow. That's the FED rule. Like you say, enforcement will be key.

    Interference on Baserunner

    ^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^^^ Players, coaches,parents, and most most importantly, the messengers of this myth,.... many MLB ANNOUNCERS!!!!!!
  12. Glad he played tonight. Shocked at only a 6 game suspension for such a chicken$h*t move.
  13. yup. He probably deserves the job for the turn around he'd accomplished in such a short time. .
