  1. Under OBR the rule says "when the ball is put in play". This is a specific time. At any other time a player could be positioned in foul territory without penalty.

    5.02 Fielding Positions When the ball is put in play at the start of, or during a game, all fielders other than the catcher shall be on fair territory. Note that this rule says nothing about what happens after the ball is put in play.

    Dropped third strike

    @beerguy55 So, if you can point out any all girls baseball league or tournament...or even an all girls high school baseball team...I'd be much obliged to learn about it. In my neck of the woods this is quite true. Females are involved in almost all levels of youth baseball both in co ed teams and all female teams. These all female teams play in the same leagues as the boys. Our umpire association also has about 8 percent female membership who can work games which are all male , mixed or all female. There has been a National Championship played in our area for several years which consists of all female teams. There is also talk of starting all female leagues this summer. Baseball Canada holds several all female National Championships every year. So yes female involvement in baseball is alive and well. By the way I am male and have been umpiring for almost 30 years.

    You are assuming that because the OP mentions girls that it is softball. Female involvement in baseball is alive and well.

  15. This is OK if you go by MLBUM interps.
  16. I can only speak about OBR but for those rules there must be all players in fair territory except the catcher at the time of putting the ball in play . At the time of pitch the players can be anywhere (in theory). There is a difference.

    Correct. Some people think this appeal is a force play. It is not.
