    How Many Bases?

    In OBR/LL the runner can properly retouch as long as he doesn't advance a base after the ball goes dead. FED baseball does not allow the runner to legally retouch if he was past his advance base when the ball went dead.
  2. You should still take the NFHS survey and answer the question about a balk and whether you want an immediate dead ball or delayed dead ball and coach choice what happens. For 2022 of course

    But codes other than OBR seem to vary in how they rule in this regard.

    LL is just following an OBR interp from the MLBUM.

    It depends on what you mean by “botched” whether an appeal can still be allowed.

    Runners Leave Early

    You have that wrong about "all defensive players". For LL an end of inning appeal can not be made after all defensive players have left the field. If one player remains in fair territory, or one player is getting the ball in foul territory or the catcher wants to appeal it would be allowed. They still would have to do the correct appeal with the ball. OBR would not allow the appeal if the pitcher and all infielders have left fair territory.

    Actually 8-3-5b in FED baseball defines the exception to time of throw when a throw goes out of play after a caught batted ball.

    How Many Bases?

    I think that would be if the player was playing FED softball. Other codes would vary. Thinking this happened to me now in a game, OBR I award R1 HP then see what the player does. NCAA baseball same thing. FED baseball easy peasy.... award R1 3B. It always stuck in my mind that @grayhawk enlightened me to this FED baseball difference a long time ago

    dead ball

    Yes, most of us would rule on the OP assuming no intent. But you said intent doesn't matter with a ball hitting a bat in fair territory. The rule only addresses a helmet placed intentionally. The MLBUM clarifies that an intentionally placed or thrown bat would be ruled the same as a helmet.

    dead ball

    While intent with placing a bat to affect a fair ball is not addressed in the rule it is addressed in the MLBUM. If the batter tried to use the bat to cause his ball to go foul or stay fair it would be a dead ball, interference and runners return.
  11. I don't see an option for a warning in OBR. It's an ejection and a ball or balk with runners on.
  12. Waiting for an "appeaser" to chime in:)
  13. Hard to picture F1 being interfered with but in the first case the run scores and the B/R is out. If the B/R was the third out the run wouldn’t score. In the second case no run scored of course since R3 was out and the B/R is out. I think in both cases it would be a teammate interfering. How did he do that? Can we take your word that interference occurred?
  14. This is an advanced mechanic and you and the PU should have briefed it and be comfortable with it and the PU should be given an instant to ask you directly before you volunteer. The point is that Bridgeport teaches not to appeal unless asked by the defense. This is a case where the PU should not wait for the defense to appeal. There is also the possibility that the PU would not ask and doesn't have to by LL rules. You both should be on the same page.
  15. The BU should not "volunteer" on a caught 3rd strike.
