    NFHS Rules question

    I recall hearing a rationale along the lines of the did the ball hit the bat or the bat hit the ball (similar to Jimurray's response.) The explanation went further to state that if the bat were STATIONARY, the ball hit the bat, play on. If the bat were moving, the bat hit the ball (no consideration of what DIRECTION the ball was moving), therefore the runner is out. No one advances. No regard for intent either.

    Somewhere, Eric Byrnes' head just exploded.

    Ejecting Fans

    I try to live by the adage "Don't talk to the fence." If someone is threatening violence or something like that, then I would talk to the HT HC and summon game management. The only time I ever addressed the fans was at a field where the stands were VERY close behind home plate. I respectfully asked everyone to put their cell phones on silent. It was very distracting to be concentrating on a pitch and be thrown off by a loud cell phone ringer. No one had any issues and complied with my request.

    NFHS 2019 Test Question #4

    Thank you all. So the prudent move is to either to either call it right away or have a lineup card conference with the coach. (SA - while appreciated, no need for the Mr. I start looking for my dad. :) )

    NFHS 2019 Test Question #4

    I understand calling a balk if he changed his motion once runners were on, but what if this has been his "natural" motion since the first pitch of the game?

    video of Timmons hit

    I wonder if umpires are a little more skittish when Sanchez is catching. He is the Nuke-La-Loosh of F2's. You are never quite sure if he is going to catch it.
