  1. UmpTime

    Baseline at Home Plate

    I agree catsbackr, and that is what brought up this question to start with. From my experience, it seems that umpires in general give more leniency around HP then in a general baseline. Thanks for the input.
  2. UmpTime

    Baseline at Home Plate

    In FED baseball rules, R3a break for home plate on a hit to F6. The catcher receives the ball slightly before the runner gets home. The runner then dives around the catcher to avoid the tag and misses home plate as well. Then he makes several "jukes" and runs around the palte to try to find a way to get a hand on home before he is tagged. How far out of the baseline can the runner go to avoid a tag? I have seen many umpires allow a "goose chase" to ensue around home plate as the runner tries to avoid the tag. Does the 3' base path not apply at home?
