  1. Nobody cared. But - forward and backward are relative to the body, not the field.
  2. The base has to be tagged by a fielder holding the ball in hand or glove.
  3. But MLB would pick a system, not three, and even if they had three a game site would only use one of them. And slightly different isn't the issue, it's the lack of consistency and the gross misses that are.
  4. Not true. If there was true a merit-based system the poor performers would be demoted or released, just as with the players, coaches, and managers.
  5. Nobody, as in nobody, would go for this. 1) Slows down the runner going for two; 2) The dirt isn't the same in every park.
  6. It isn't there because it isn't a rule.
  7. The pitcher disengaged. Not a pitch. No CI.
  8. We Yankee fans think it was the correct call.
  9. You also asked: "Or is there an intricacy somewhere in the rules that I'm missing about securing the foul tip?"
  10. It was ruled uncaught thus not a foul tip.

    Balk in OBR. Legal in FED
  12. Texas Rangers catcher Travino tonight - fielding popups mask on.
  13. I've seen catchers, including at least one in MLB, keep the HSM on when fielding a fly ball. Try one on - the vision is much better than a traditional mask.
  14. Doesn't suggest anything to me. Try being in a local rec league for any length of time. I liked the folks that volunteered to umpire. Nice people. A few were non-so-good umpires.

    Home Run

    Requires negotiation. That's why the "fail to reach agreement" is there. Not a good management move to just implement it.

    Home Run

    Players have to agree with rule changes. Not sure they'd give that up.

    Home Run

    You sure? Never encountered that before. If it had been ruled foul he'd still be at the plate as the batter.
  18. When the ball collides with the bat both the ball and the bat collapse and "store" energy then return it. That's why both bats and balls have to meet standards that keep them below certain levels.
  19. Thin the barrel to get more trampoline effect.
  20. Illegal. Copyright violation. Do you work for free? Does your employer give away its product/service for free? Don't expect others to so.
  21. Because I see the same complaint made over and over and over again on Newspaper Facebook pages.

    Why? If its their job to just hit the ball it's the umpire's job to get\ the call correct.

    Did you see the OBR/FED difference posted above?
  24. Does your company provide its product for free? No? The why expect the NYT to do so?
