    MLB BALK- delayed deadball

    thank you

    coach enters field of play

    Any penalty for a coach entering the field of play... ? ie: foul ball hit in the air, coach vacates the box and enters the field of play, avoiding the fielder making a play on the ball. I don't believe there is, but someone mentioned this to me, so I figured I'd ask those of you who cared to comment.

    MLB BALK- delayed deadball

    With this balk rule, the offense has the choice on the result of the play, correct? Does that only count when you have a batted ball? What about a ball 4 on the batter or any other scenario not involving a batted ball?

    Tag up scenario

    This answers exactly what I was going to ask... At youth ages, so often with R1 and R3, R1 goes early and 1/2 the time the pitcher camps on the ball, meanwhile R1 reaches R2, then the windup begins and the pitch is delivered.

    Shows how much I know... I would have always called the ball foul unless the ball was in anyway in contact w/ the line. Soccer has a rule whereas any part of the circumference of the ball over the line is in bounds. I've never once thought this to be the same in baseball myself personally. again, just goes to show how much I know.

    sounds like a dang soccer ruling... that ball is foul all day and twice on Sundays. I'll ask him.

    if it’s in regards to a fielder making contact with the ball. If any part of that ball, in your judgement, is on the foul line then it’s a fair ball. Just like if any part of the ball touches the foul line

    he didnt understand the question and asked me to specify. I imagine you mean part of the ball os over the fair foul line... what is the call

    A friend of mine was just at the Jim Evans clinic in SD... He's preparing for a training class in Vero Beach. I can give you his number if interested in speaking with him directly.

    Pitcher goes to his mouth and into the glove

    The game was a Colt Div (Pony League) playoff, which uses OBR, then Pony rulebook for modifications.

    Pitcher goes to his mouth and into the glove

    Gracias Senor! In this situation, F1 neglected to wipe his hand at all... it was straight to the mouth and directly into the glove. FED and OBR are perfect.
  12. cricket? truth be told, I still don't understand the rules to cricket other than it seems you can hit the ball as far foul as possible! LMAO
  13. This happened while in contact with the rubber w/ R2 and R3. Coach wanted a balk, I simply exchanged the ball. Comments?
  14. Is this rule still enforced (OBR, NCAA, FED)? I heard the rule had been removed, not sure if that's entirely true or not.

    RHP Pickoff to 3B

    interesting part of this is the "hesitation or interruption of joining hands in setting position". This happens pretty often but rarely have I seen it enforced.
