    Throwing Period

    It's on page 5 and it says prior to regular team practice. Maven gives you the correct advice for getting your answer. (My mind says infield practice is part of regular team practice.)

    Throwing Period

    "Throwing period"? What do you mean?
  3. Because it was done from off the field. If you aren't allowed to steal signs then why have signs? Just yell out the play and forbid the other team acting on what they heard.
  4. And it's still a stupid rule.

    White sleeves

    Correct - for OBR LL bans white or gray sleeves. Check with your local league for their rules.
  6. It's simple. Verbalize it. The players that need to know the call have their backs to you. It's not their job to guess what you saw.
  7. Yep - just as a fielder who has to do the same to avoid obstruction.
  8. It's not "most" and I've encountered many older people with that problem. “Kids” – Written in 1958 - lyrics by Lee Adams and music by Charles Strouse. Not much has changed since. Kids! I don't know what's wrong with these kids today! Kids! Who can understand anything they say? Kids! They are disobedient, disrespectful oafs! Noisy, crazy, sloppy, lazy, loafers! While we're on the subject: Kids! You can talk and talk till your face is blue! Kids! But they still just do what they want to do! Why can't they be like we were, Perfect in every way? What's the matter with kids today? Kids! I've tried to raise you the best I could Kids! All the things I've done were for your own good! Kids! Can't you once appreciate how I've sacrificed? Working, slaving, scrimping saving pennies And living with your father! Kids! No one knows the burdens I've had to bear (And in my condition) Kids! I'm a poor sick woman and does he care? (Ha!) Go on go on and kill me, that's what it's coming to When a mother has kids like you! Kids! All the chicken soup that I've made for you (Momma take it easy) Kids! Now you throw me out like a worn out show Not in front of everybody Mom After all I haven't been such an awful son I never sass you back or leave a ring around the bathtub And don't I always phone you? Kids! You can give your life to them night and day Kids! Then they go get married and go away Married! Who's gettin' married??? Why do we have these children? Better to have a pet You know where you stand with the pet I never asked for nothing, nothing is what you'll get What's the matther with kids to---- I tried Lou but I failed
  9. Can't correct the error after touching the next base (after in OBR - when in FED) the ball is dead. You can notify the umpire of your intent to appeal at any time - you don't have to wait until the runner touches home.
  10. Not supposed to leave until after the B-R touches HP.
  11. 10U game. Take that into consideration
  12. Runners kept running. Fielders kept after the "wrong" one. They were ALL confused. Yelling started AFTER the throw to 2B. Stop defending the confusing call.
  13. Fixed it for you. ALL (key word) the players were confused. The yelling started AFTER the throw to 2B. Coaches start yelling "instantly" if they see the wrong reaction. Not communicated well.
  14. The OP says both the defense and offense thought the ball was dropped so the call obviously was not clear.
  15. "just a bit harder" ? Cutting the draft rounds in half is "just a bit"? Strange world you inhabit.
