  1. TASO Exam

    This *IS* listed under interference in the definitions section of the rules (at least it was in 2016 -- my last year of books). On the first question -- I think, based on his comments in the OP, jlopez did not properly read it -- the runner has retreated back past the base (so, R1 is forced, touches second, goes beyond second, retreats to second, retreats toward first) -- the force is reinstated. Otherwise, he learned something from the first two questions -- and that's part of the purpose of the test.
  2. NFHS Intentional Walk

    Agreed. And, 99% of the time, the request comes from the coach anyway. Catcher's aren't smart enough to know when to do this, or dumb enough to ask without getting the coach's approval.
  3. End of game situation

    This play, which exists in all codes, might be adding to the confusion (and / or be the basis for the old FED 9.1.1M ruling): Bases loaded, two outs. B6 walks. R1 overruns second and is tagged out before R3 touches the plate. Ruling: R3's run scores because he was forced home on the award. (I recognize the differences, as I am sure do many / most here. But not everyone on some facebook forum or your partner at a particular game will)
  4. Two Batter Interference ?'s

    I don't think that's a "lesser note" at all -- it precisely why this is INT.
  5. 3-man, R3 , less than 2 outs

    An appeal needs to be obvious. So, either it is and BU won't be making the call above (unless U1 is oblivious to the obviousness), or it wasn't and your presumption is unfounded. In play 2 -- U1 can just look at or ask PU if the runner left early and then make the call. It's not like s/he has to decide in a vacuum. And, the same play happens in two-man, so you play was unnecessarily complicated.
  6. Online Clinic

    I had been pushing for that (at least as an option) for many years. It's about time. During the in-person meetings, they crammed about 30 minutes worth of information into an 8 hour day.
  7. Safe or Out

    U1 should almost never stay in foul territory when the ball is hit in the infield. Stay there if F4 is coming hard toward the line and fields the ball -- but that happens only a couple of times a season. We would likely see F4 in the video if that were the case here.
  8. Runner

    R1 and F3 each chug a beer. If R1 finishes first he is safe; if F3 finishes first R1 is out. Note that some leagues have a designated chugger -- either for all, or for a specified number of other players.
  9. Positions

    But, PU is going to move a bit to be able to help on the FPSR at second.
  10. Base Hit?

  11. Where to start on learning NCAA ruleset

    I think there is (or was) a chart in the back of the NCAA book (but maybe I'm remembering from a different sport). Get the current rule book from someone. Read it and take your own notes on what is different. What is "important and confusing" to me will be diffeernt for you. When you are done, you'll have your own personalized version of BRD that you can review before each game.
  12. 2 umpire system mechanics question

    These answers, combined, are correct. imo, of course.
  13. Judge or Altuve ?

    Take it to the fan-boy forum.
  14. Catch/injury AFL game

    I didn't watch the video -- but that statement is NOT part of the rule.
  15. THe same thing BU is supposed to do. Call it when it happens and don't wait for the result of any subsequent play. (And, the same thing U2 is supposed to do in 3- or 4- or 6-man.)
