  1. Balk and Base Awards

    OBR Rule Set: Runner on First, outs don't matter. Pitcher rolls through coming set, delivers ball (count was 2-1). Umpires call "Balk". Batter takes pitch without swinging. R1 stealing on the pitch. Catcher throws it into centerfield. R1 rounds second and heads for third. I think there was an error when the "Time" was called and the runner was placed back at second. R1 should have been allowed to advance at his own jeopardy. If he made third, then bonus for him. If he was thrown out, then under OBR-he is out. We would nullify the pitch and play on, correct? ____________________________________ I believe this was confused with an interference call where if the catcher does not retire the runner on the immediate throw-we kill the play. Any comments and/or rule references would be appreciated.

  3. Bizarro Out

    This is a pretty bizarre play. Let me know what you have on this situation. Batted ball hits first base before touching the ground. It ricochet's into the pitcher's glove. He runs over and touches first base to get the out. The announcers note that similar to a ball that is batted, hits the pitchers rubber and goes into the air where it is caught, it does not require touching a base as it is a catch. I think they are mistaken on both counts but I cannot find a reference in the NFHS or other rule books. I looked in NFHS Rules 1-29 (Base Equipment), and 2-9-1 (Definition of a catch) to no avail. Here is the link to video: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/07/sonny-gray-1st-base-bag_n_5105443.html?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592
  4. Returning to missed bag

    We had a play in a game yesterday I hadn't seen before and I can't find it explicitly covered in the rule books. Runner on second (no one on first), batter hits a clean single. Runner misses third base, passes the bag about 10 feet and attempts to return. The defense throws the ball to the base, no tag was made, and the umpire called the runner out. He said once he passed the base, it became a force play to return. I still contend it is a tag play. What do you think?
