    balk call

    I’d say at least 50% of the guests that use “Ask the Umpire” never reply to the answers or follow-up questions.

  4. In 2017, Tmac wrote that more plays should be reviewable. This is a devastating example of why as Friday's WBSC Italy-South Africa game ended on a triple play following what should have been a foul ball call, instead ruled fair by a HP Umpire who didn't see that a batted ball hit the batter in...

    The Ump must have been right! He hasn't responded back yet

    I think what D. Yeager was asking was simply this: does a RHP have to step off and disengage before throwing to first on a pick-off? No, he does not.

    R2 can NEVER become R1. It's the same question you asked before, just in a different format. If the defense is trying to tag R2 and R2 runs toward first, he's out of the baseline. If a runner is not attempting to return to a base missed, he can be appealed.

    1) It doesn't need to be the "quick feet" move - the pivot foot need not be re positioned at all. Just turn on it and throw. 2) There's no speed requirement in the rules (and even if there is one in real life, the move in the video was plenty fast enough).
  9. HP Umpire Manny Gonzalez ejected Royals pitcher Mike Montgomery (ball two/three calls; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Royals-#Twins game. With none out and none on, Twins batter Mitch Garver hit a home run after taking a 1-1 curveball and 2-1 changeup from Montgomery for called... [[ This is a content summary only.

    I have no idea what you mean by the "hands have to..." or what the pivot foot must do if you are referencing the video. Could you reference some rules that refer to what you are talking about?

    I am only talking about what the feet do, the hands have to complete and act of separation as well. But you did not mention the hands. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

    The first two minutes describes what three options you have for throwing to home or first base. I think you are describing the third move "quick feet" where yoy do not disengage the rubber. If that is what your pitcher did, then it is not a balk. BUT the pivot foot must move a hair faster for that move to be legal. Good luck in arguing that, eh?

  15. I have had the proverbial zombie coach that seems to "forget" to ask for time. I say (with a commanding voice) "do not approach the field coach" and they freeze in their tracks. In your situation, the runner did not give a hoot about anything but getting to second base. The play is not resolved until the batter-runner pauses at first base with no intent to "continue". Until then, the granting of time is not even considered by myself. The coach would have only interfered with his pitcher, right? You did not say that he did any of that. The runner is out, good try...maybe next time. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  16. When you see the coach coming out... Just call time. It is that simple.

    Retreating part 2

    Thinking about my previous question, I have a followup or two: Similar situation: OBR, 1 out, R2 and R1. R2 has retreated past second and is somewhere between first and second (for example, over ran second while backing up on a pickoff attempt). F6 is standing on second with the ball. If R2 decides to attempt to go to third without retouching second, when can the defense appeal? As R2 passes second can F6 just look at the umpire and say, "he missed the base"? Or does the defense have to wait until R2 gets to third? If F6 tries to chase down R2, can R2 legally continue to retreat towards first or would this be considered "running out of the basepath" or abondonment since R2 cannot reasonably expect to regain first with R1 standing there and his only basepath should be from where he is standing to second?? If R2 is chased back to first and then crosses into foul territory, is R1 out for passing? Can R1 step off first toward home to keep from "passing" R2? If so, can R2 legally regain first if R1 were then tagged out?
  22. good video, I'd liked to have seen if the runners actually missed 3rd

  25. When Pirates pitcher Michael Feliz threw wildly to third base during an appeal play in Chicago, 3B Umpire Alfonso Marquez consulted his crew before ruling all Cubs safe (base touch), filling up our mailbag with questions about appeals.

    Since most moves to first involve removing the pivot foot from the rubber (even if that act is not a Disengagement), many coaches think it's a requirement. It's not so far-fetched to think an umpire has also fallen for that myth.

    So, did you Protest the call? What did the Umpire do/say when you pulled out your Rulebook? Just as a heads-up, most Umpires will eject you for pulling out a Rulebook, the consensus is you are "showing up" the umpire. Now, if you asked him and he said it was OK then that's a different story. Did your pitcher "step towards first" on the kick-off of just "snap throw" over there?
