  1. triple play???

    My buddy was in the game and told me about it. The defensive coach opined that R1 HAD to advance. We both disagreed with this thought. Thanks for the replies.
  2. triple play???

    Fed rules, R1, R2, no outs. A sharp hit, short hop to F5. F5 catches the ball off the dirt, touches 3rd and throws to F3 for a double play. R1, thinking that F5 caught a low line drive in the air, dives back to 1st. F3 throws to F6 who is standing on 2nd base. I have a double play and R1 remains on 1st. What says the knowledge base? Thanks
  3. Batter interference?? Who is out??

    ok. if there is R1 and R2 which runner to you bang out?? Thanks
  4. FED rules: 1 out, 3-2 count. R1. B/R swings and misses. His momentum carries him in front of F2. R1 steals 2nd. I have B/R out, R1 returns to 1st base. What says the knowledge base? Thanks
  5. collision resposibility

    To add fuel to this: If the batter runner is thrown out at second trying to stretch a single to a double and the interference at the plate negates the time play, what do you have? thanks
  6. How does 3n2 sizing compare to New Balance; ie, if I wear a 9 in New Balance, would i be a 9 in the 3n2? I can't find a pair of 3n2 shoes to try on and will have to get some via the web. Thanks
  7. interference??

    thanks fellows. I got nothing even if it appears he is in the way, just not on purpose. Thanks for the Claire F. Cation...........
  8. interference??

    R3, 1-2 to the batter, no outs. Dropped third strike, catcher clears outside and makes the throw to 1st for the out. Batter runner turns around and trots back down the base path enroute to third base dugout, R3 begins to advance, BR is now blocking the throwing lane of F3 to F2. FED rules. What says the knowledge base? Thanks

  10. ball bags no interior pockets

    Thanks fellows.
  11. Does anyone have a recommendation on a ball bag that does not have interior pockets for indicator, brush, etc? I normally wear two, balls on will hang up on interior pockets. I may just sew them up. Thanks for any comments. Regards, Wally "FishnFed"

  14. Balk or not

    Good point. I can see that going a long way when a coach comes out to discuss what he saw vs what you saw. Thanks. Good replies from the two.
  15. Balk or not

    Fed rules, R1, R3, and lefthanded pitcher. After F1 comes set, R1 begins to run, F1 raises his front foot and spins towards 2nd and becomes disengaged from the pitcher's plate. R1 stops and the pitcher throws to F6 who is moving towards 2nd. I have no balk since the pitcher came off the rubber, threw to a fielder moving towards the bag and R1 was advancing. It was a bit odd looking, but that was my thought process. Anything from the Knowledge Base? Thanks
