  2. I think he got a good look but yes it would be better if he was set. But did replay call it fair because at least half the ball touched fair ground? Did replay employ the rule and interp. I don’t see any record of this on MLB.COM. What actually was the reversal? More than half was over the line or any part was over the line? Was it a rule issue or a judgment issue? Based on some recent judgments From NY I don’t see how NY could have clear evidence that the ball was half over the line. So did they get the rule/interp wrong? Nobody wants to go there in this convoluted rule/interp issue and J
  3. just the mechanics, only if it is infecting the bench or fence. Verbalizing it? I'm stopping that with a warning and then restriction if it continues. That can confuse the defense (and offense for that matter)

  5. While staring him down after your call on the banger, “You missed that one, coach.” “You know we’re not looking at you when you safe your own guys, right?” “How come you’ve never given a punch-out coach?” Mostly, he needs ignored. Unless it includes some hysterics or unacceptable vocals. But if he looks like a fool flapping his arms, I really don’t care. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Biggest issue was he was still moving and never down and set after turning to visualize the line and the ball making contact umpire 101
  7. I tell them to and if they don't it will work against them. I'll call the runner out even if he's safe. It's always worked after the first runner.

    That is counter to what senor azul posted. Kid running into RF is out even though no tag attempt bc of the play established by throwing over to try and get him

  10. To our guest, by rule the batter-runner cannot be credited with a triple because a preceding runner was declared out at the plate— 2021 NCAA rule 10-6b Note: Do not credit the batter with a three-base hit when a preceding runner is put out at the plate, or would have been out but for an error. Do not credit the batter with a two-base hit when a preceding runner trying to advance from first base is put out at third base, or would have been out but for an error. When the R1 was appealed and called out, the out is considered to have occurred at the time of the infraction. If your batter
  11. Part of branding is quality control...when I stay at the Marriott in New York City and order a side salad with my meal I know it's going to come with 3 tomatoes. When I hop a flight to China and stay at the Marriott in Beijing and order that same salad...again, I know it's coming with 3 tomatoes. I'm sure the pledge matters to the Legionnaires. I'm sure it matters to the national tournament personnel and staff. I absolutely know it matters to the umpires. It needs to start mattering at the local level, too...or again...don't take the pledge. ~Dawg
  12. I use the 4-dial Champro that @ArchAngel72 posted. I have to replace them every couple of years due to the ridges wearing down and just general gunk build-up (sweat, sunblock, and dirt). I had been getting them from our USA rep for $5. I’ve eyeballed the All-Star a few times, @kylehutson, but that price tag has always held me back. Call me odd, but I have always wanted to start collecting indicators. Not sure what odd ones are out there. I remember seeing a blue “see through” plastic one a few years back at a clinic, but I’ve never come back across it since.

    Runner misses base on Grand Slam

    Yes - I meant R1. Thanks. Still wondering why the batter only gets credit for a single. Doesn’t seem right to me.
  14. All the ones I know of sell Richardson. Sorry
  15. If I had know we could have included this. I have a All Star FM25 in black that I dont need. From what I recall, it is in great shape (havent taken it out in a while).
  16. Yeah, but this player was not running into a wall. He trucked the catcher.
  17. Yeah, I do prefer it. I have a plastic one with balls on top but its thicker and doesn’t fit the hand as nice. I tried switching to the All Star heavyweight one but couldn’t get used to it so it went back.
  18. You haven't watched enough people run into a wall. One usually extends the arms to act as a shock absorber.

    Rundown

    This is defined in the rules. The runner creates his own basepath. In a rundown it is from the point where the runner is at the start of the tag attempt straight to the base he is attempting to reach. Every time the runner reverses direction a new basepath is established. If the runner deviates from that path more than three feet perpendicularly the runner is out for that, not for abandonment. If there is no tag attempt the runner can run anywhere without penalty.

    Rundown

    Thank you @senorazul But the rule says they are out for being out of the base path by more than 3 feet when a tag attempt is made….so if they go to the OF, is that out for abandonment rather than out of base path?
  21. Warn for arguing judgement calls. (Non-negotiable!) Then eject. Suspend the game until the ejection is complied with. Then let the League deal with it. I often apply Rule 11.03(g) when necessary. Mike Las Vegas
  22. Right: the missed-base appeal is a time play, so R3's and R2's runs count. R1 was out on appeal, and the BR's run can't count if a preceding runner makes the 3rd out. Who knows? I don't keep score. Assuming you mean R1, yes. Of course, why not?

    Rundown

    Yeah, "make a play" I would interpret to include when a defender with the ball pursues the runner as well. And, if that is correct, it would prevent the runner from hightailing it into the outfield.

    Rundown

    From the 2016 Baseball Rules Differences by Carl Childress (section 454, p. 301): Runner Establishes Base Path FED: When a play is being made on a runner, he establishes his base path as a direct line between his position and the base he is trying for. (8-4-2a-2) Official Interpretation: Hopkins: The “skunk in the outfield” is legal. A runner may lead off any way he likes toward the next base and is not guilty of an infraction unless he uses more than three feet on either side of his base path to avoid a tag.

  25. Looking for any standard, hollow steel frame. Adidas Icon, +POS ZeroG, Wilson aluminum maybe, I don't really care. In either black or silver. Frame only, no harness needed.
  26. If it’s a single game, I’m fine sticking to the time limit in a close game. On a field with 6-7 games on it today, and umpires working 2-3 games, and a field maintenance guy or two there from 7am on….starting an inning with a second left is completely asinine.
