  1. Missed home appeal

    No. No following runners can score on a play where a preceding runner is called out upon appeal for the 3rd out. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  2. Relocating due to rain

    Although I agree with the logic of this post, the matter which the OP describes it is out of line. If he's going to challenge the idea of gas money and location change, it has to be more tactful with the assigner. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  3. ASV "Independent" Information

    No question was asked of who/how schedules .... Just if the $35/game as an independent was legit. Post #2 was an edgy double down. Perhaps maybe just a 1.5x. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  4. Research Needed for Graduate School Project

    Gave my responses. Checked out my score afterwards - got a 0/0 I guess I'm kicked out of the club Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  5. I gave you the reply. See INT, call INT... Especially FPSR. We don't wait to see what happens on the back end. PU or BU, doesn't matter. PU has the responsibility for it when a throw is made by the middle infielder. If he sees a violation of FPSR, he kills all immediately, sells it heavily, and prescribes the remedy without hesitation. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  6. If BR is out at 1B, FPSR isn't applied? Where did you get this? If there is a violation of FPSR, call it immediately and apply the penalty. I don't give a hoot what happens on that throw to 1B. See FPSR, call FPSR. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  7. I fail to see the 'funnyness' Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  8. Foul tip?

    I only had issue with the fact that you said the PU would be mistaken if he ruled it a foul tip... You made it sound as if you were 100% sure it missed the mitt. The PU has to rule on something. Even with video replay, we aren't 100% sure here. I don't know what you're asking of this crew... Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  9. Foul tip?

    If you're two definites are true, then you have a foul tip strikeout Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  10. Foul tip?

    And you are 100% certain that the 'tipped pitch' doesn't hit the mitt AT ALL on its way to Contreras' armpit? I'm not seeing it. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  11. I considered that necessary Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  12. Please go back and read how you wrote your responses... Your statements made it seem like you were still rendering a call at 1B after calling FPSR at 2B. Cut the unnecessary sarcasm. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  13. His point was that if you are getting the illegal slide at 2B as the BU, you shouldn't be turning to even look at 1B... Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  14. new umpire

    If, in the umpires' judgement, the fly ball could have been caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, then it should be deemed an infield fly. Nothing in the rule book prescribes judging communications between fielders or their ensuing 3-stooges antics. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  15. Baseball

    Haha, then how do you tell someone they are incorrect when they are, in fact, correct? This all only comes back to your Rich Ives directive, not your initial post, which contained no information on assumption. Your unmentioned assumption tells the OP that any batted ball that crosses fair > foul is immediately foul. That's a pretty tough one to swallow as umpires when WE know that's nowhere near enough information. One simply added variable tells the OP the answer... It's not creating 3rd world plays, it's answering the question. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
