Coach Assist or not?

Recommended Posts

NFHS Varsity, NCAA, or Adult OBR

R1, B/R singles to CF and F8 overthrows the cut off man and the ball rolls into the infield to the LF side of the mound area. R1 goes full speed from 1B to 3B.

3B coach is standing by R3 who slides into 3B as the ball sails over the cut off's head and rolls into the infield.

R3 stands up, takes two steps off of the base in the direction of home plate at which point the 3B coach puts his hand in the center of R3's chest and says "no, no, no...stay here" 

Coach assist?

100%.

A couple years ago I called it in a 12U travel game. Instead of to the chest, he stuck his arm out perpendicular to the base line to stop him by the waste/stomach. He didn't argue that he didn't do it. His argument was that it's a 12 year old game, how can I call that? I told him that, well, the call is on you, and you're not 12.
