  1. https://www.ncaa.com/news/baseball/article/2018-08-16/college-baseball-video-review-challenge-system-approved It seemed as though it would only be a matter of time before the IBB and no fake to third would be implemented. The changes on pitchers' positioning is going to be problematic unless there is a universal effort to enforce the new standards. The HBP and runners staying at their bases changes are the most interesting to me. I wonder what the penalty will be for runners leaving their bases during a defensive conference.

  2. What I’m about to say might derail the focus on “the shirt” or “the uniform”, but bear with me please... I’ll knit the topics back together again. It has nothing to do with the specific shirt style or color, or the color of pants, or the way we hem them (sorry @BT_Blue ), or if we wear black, blue, grey or green ball bags (... but why would you?)... it has to do with control and conformity. And, it begins at the association level. There are two things in particular that associations love to do: Stratify their members Determine the group’s uniform And yes, it’s in that

  3. The dirt area surrounding home plate is a 26 foot circle, which means the batter has 13 feet from the point of home plate to begin running to first.

  4. I had t Hooks installed so I only had to send the lower plate. It was $32.50 inc shipping. Turned it around ASAP.

  6. I’m ambivalent about the Sox, but the dodgers have two of my least favorite players in Puig and Machado (not helped by his... questionable plays on the bases this post season), so go Sox I guess. I was really hoping that the brewers, AKA the Royals of last year, would make it. I agree that it’s a super boring matchup.

  7. In the 2017-18 NCAA rule book, it is spelled out in rule 7-1d-1 Exceptions: d. Batter’s-Box Rule. This rule is designed to speed up play by controlling the actions of the batter between pitches. 1) The batter must keep at least one foot in the batter’s box throughout the time at bat. Exceptions—A batter may leave the batter’s box but not the dirt area surrounding home plate when…: In the 2016 BRD, Carl Childress writes, “A high school batter who legally leaves the box may go onto the grass. A college batter must stay on the dirt except in two instances: a substitution occurs

  8. Every time I see that clip and he falls to his back right as he catches the ball, my heart is in my throat! Even though I know he catches it. This is the first World Series I am not excited about since before 2010. Obviously I have to root against the Dodgers. But I feel all "Crying Game" having to root for the Red Sox.

  9. Or, just get a Champro, load it with TW pads and a Wilson harness. Oh, and what's with the sports bra on the All Star?

  10. Apparently not. This is pretty basic, even for rec ball.

  11. Reading through this thread, I'd started to worry that I'd screwed up by getting the smitty ball bags that match my pants... This gives me a little hope I like the way it looks, but would it be looked down on by evaluators?

  12. My brother, to this day, has not seen Pablo Sandoval catch the pop fly to end the series... Stormed out of the room as soon as the ball was hit. At least we got the championship the next year!... And it looks like it could be another 30 years till we do it again.

  13. The MLBUM also allows the umpire to judge that a batter "lingering" in the dirt circle has shown no effort to run to 1B and can be called out.

  14. Kind of sort of - this rule had already once before, in 1975, been protested and ruled the same way by the same AL president (in the first case the league sided with the umpires, who let the home run stand) - so though the rule book hadn't been updated in that time, the precedent had been set.

  15. Blasphemy. Besides, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The FM4000's planform is born out of research by All-Star, undertaken on their own, aimed at designing a mask that was strong, resistant to (most) deformation by transferring load outward, reducing the amount of flat surfaces presented to a ball. Through CAD work, they arrived at a pyramidal -shaped cage, curved along an arc. The utilized this cage in what became their signature HSM, the MVP2500 / 4000. Going further, they expanded it into a TM, with the mask shaped almost as a true half-sphere, but also curved around the face so a

  16. When this happens, please post the video. I will enjoy watching the OHC come unglued, being ejected and the PU grabbing the stankiest end of any stick ever.

  18. I love this. Finally a definitive no-nonsense, common sense way to call this play.

  19. I once was told by an evaluator that I didnt make a college group "because my pants weren't cut long enough." I later found out there just wasnt room on the roster. It took another 3 years to get in.

  20. Yeah, it shocks me. I’ve heard some pretty intricate rules disscussions... really shook my faith in my rules knowledge until I looked it up.
