  1. Force3 Shin Fit

    How do you store your shin guards? I usually put one inside the other and put them in the F3 bag. They should come straight down. You might be able to bend them back into their proper shape.
  2. Force3 Shin Fit

    That's designed for ankle protection. The little "bubbles," for lack of a better term, are really hard. Leave them on the outside of your shoe for ankle protection. I wear the 18.5" F3 and they do stick up a little above my knee. I wasn't sure how I felt about this until I got hit on the top of my kneecap the other day, and boy was I glad I had some more shin guard up there.
  3. Force Out?

    A FORCE PLAY is a play in which a runner legally loses his right to occupy a base by reason of the batter becoming a runner. 5.08 How a Team Scores (a) One run shall be scored each time a runner legally advances to and touches first, second, third and home base before three men are put out to end the inning. EXCEPTION: A run is not scored if the runner advances to home base during a play in which the third out is made (1) by the batter-runner before he touches first base; (2) by any runner being forced out; or (3) by a preceding runner who is declared out because he failed to touch one of the bases.
  4. Passing Runner, ala Beavers vs. Wildcats

    I had a similar play last summer. Top of the 1st, R1 no outs. Can of corn to center field, R1 retreats to 1B as the BR rounds 1B. F8 drops the fly ball and when I look over at my runners the BR is 15 feet past R1. I pointed with my left hand and said/yelled "That's passing, batter's out! Batter's out!" with my right arm raised in a hammer. This is tough because everyone knows I called somebody out, but they really aren't paying close attention. R1 started to slowly jog towards second base as the defense stood around looking confused. I started to jog closer to second base to be ready for a play, indicating to everyone that R1 hadn't been retired without actually saying so. Eventually the DTHC got the memo and shouted "Somebody tag him please!"
  5. Force Out?

    OBR 5.09(b) Retiring a Runner Any runner is out when: (6) He or the next base is tagged before he touches the next base, after he has been forced to advance by reason of the batter becoming a runner. LL pretty much aligns with OBR, so I'd bet you can find this in the LL rule book.

  7. Building on the combo train here, do any of you guys have problems with your plate pants riding wayyyyyyy up when you get in your crouch? I know @harrisonj23 has this problem with the Smittys, as do I. Do you think a pair of combos would help with this? Any suggestions on how to fix this without buying a new pair of pants?

    Definition of Interference: (d) Spectator interference occurs when a spectator (or an object thrown by the spectator) hinders a player’s attempt to make a play on a live ball, by going onto the playing field, or reaching out of the stands and over the playing field. Thanks, Toronto.
  13. The MLBUM doesn't include hindrance either. They seem to agree with you, saying the proper mechanic is for the plate umpire to call "Backswing hit the catcher" as soon as the violation occurs. Interesting.
  14. 6.03(a)(3) reads: (3) He interferes with the catcher’s fielding or throwing by stepping out of the batter’s box or making any other movement that hinders the catcher’s play at home base. The comment you cited is a follow up to 6.03(a)(3), which already addressed hindrance.
