  1. But not in each individual forum - where it should be.
  2. Related to me; Coach: "Where was that pitch?" Coach: "Wow - where was that pitch?" Catcher: "They're balls Dad."

    I have seen the start to come set then stop balked many times in MLB.

    How to you get to set? It's a pitching motion. You can get balked tor starting then stopping. Not a continuous motion. Preparatory to coming to a set position, the pitcher shall have one hand on his side; from this position he shall go to his set position as defined in Rule 5.07(a)(2) without interruption and in one continuous motion.

    Why not? . Couldn't get to set without making a motion 7) The pitcher makes any motion naturally associated with his pitch while he is not touching the pitcher’s plate;
  6. Sunny days are light longer than overcast days. Can't just use a clock.
  7. Light meter. Below XX for 5 minutes. Stop.
  8. Too many cars with DRLs. Don't use this.
  9. 1) What was the base movement issue? It may have been a rules misinterpretation depending on the rule set. 2) The strike zone is over the plate, not where the catcher catches it. 3) Belly button isn't high enough. 4) The black isn't part of the plate - and a ball and a half off the black is two off the plate and is too far - which is why the "huge" complaint.
  10. I've seen catchers hold the ball in the glove. Don't recall ever seeing one hold the glove closed.

    Balk or CI

    It's a legal pitch as long as he didn't violate any balk rules. See the noumpere post for what it is it the catcher steps out in front to catch the pitch.
  12. Did he interfere with anything? And there's your answer clue
  13. Umpire - not a player. Nice try though.
