  1. The only code in which you can't use all of the scorekeeping pages to clean things. You have to keep the first page of that chapter.
  2. Interestingly there is not a diagram for 1B or HP. That interp refers to passing a base. It does not define reaching a base. R3 runs home for the winning run on a base hit to the fence, stops short of the plate and stomps just short of the white thinking he touched it. Is that abandonment?
  3. It goes back to my calculus question. As a runner gets near a base can we say he missed it even though he didn't pass it? My and @noumperefirst impression of the play was a missed base, wait fot an appeal. Is therea cite for "A runner can not miss a base they have never reached."
  4. There are two bases, !B and HP, that I could envision, in certain circumstances, coming up to the base, stopping and touching and thus completing his responsibilty. What distance would he have to miss touching the base, maybe hit the black thinking he touched the base, or something as stupidly distanced as the OP, where we could say he missed the base? Can a runner miss a base they thought they reached?
  5. The caseplay doesn't say what happened to Smith or Doe (not the names the caseplay uses) but I'd assume that when Jones came back in Doe left the game and Smith moved to another position.
  6. I like that analysis. But I have a question related to my very hazy memory of calculus which I was good at but am no longer. Something to do with the limit. R3 backs up and is passed without him touching HP by a lot, the distance of the dirt circle. Very hard to think he thought he touched HP and scored and went to the dugout but he might actually say that's what happened. So in his mind he didn't abandon and was not passed. But let's go through the iteration of him backing up a little further. At what point do we judge he missed HP, didn't abandon, and was not passed. Many scorers stop at the
  7. that is a WTF moment. I'm good but I don't know if I could process a LL/third world eff up any quicker than the ump. I'm thinking WTF just happened, missed base, passing, while watching the other touches. I finally judge passing and call it. Others finally judge a missed base.
  8. You don’t infer that they don’t want to wait on a lingering batter and call him out before he leaves the circle as a pace of play issue? Why would they tell us to call him out otherwise. He hasn’t left the circle as per the rule.
  9. I don't remember where I read or heard the reason for the change but it is reinforced by the PBUC "lingers" interp.
  10. I believe the reason for the OBR change was pace of play.
  11. I’ve called it as any other move that hinders the catcher........added, actually I never have “called” it since I never had a runner advance on any misplay. I just have used “don’t do that”.
  12. They probably were from NYC. Have you ever heard of the NY alphabet:)
  13. Well MLB dropped the ball on the hard copy and the online rules. They did change it and NCAA followed. I can't do it now but two or three threads here expounded about it at the beginning of the year.
  14. Believe them. NCAA does not lead OBR, they follow OBR. I think hard copy 2020 OBR books have the change. Buy one.
  15. Similar happened in a HS game due to crossup. One of our umps ejected the coach. The PONY org he worked for had some rule that required the coach to be ejected if this happened.
