  1. And I'll clarify this further--if they actually meant i.e., that would mean that the only time momentum was complete was if the fielder had both reversed direction and was running the ball back to the infield.
  2. This is most certainly a valid dead-ball appeal.
  3. Maybe you should get out more often.

    FED DH Rule Change

    Looks like I chose the right year to stop doing HS ball.

    ABANDONING BASE

    Their problem, not mine.

    ABANDONING BASE

    If an umpire makes the correct call, there is nothing to correct.

    Double Play

    2 is irrelevant, as it only applies if a runner attempts to slide. 7 is a non-substantive clause; it merely provides the penalty. It does not define interference.

    Double Play

    Not in FED.

    Double Play

    Mmmhmmm...now we've got it.

    Double Play

    Let's think about this. Under FPSR, what is protected from the runner?

    Double Play

    I would suggest going back and looking at the rule.
  12. Normal motion has nothing to do with this. He can use a different motion for every pitch in every game.
  13. I'm not sure how that can be explained. I see a stop. So does everyone else here so far.
  14. He's doing that. I've got nothing in either.

    Long fly ball

    You know, this is similar to what I wanted to say, but I really didn't want to reward the question.
  16. That's a long sentence. I'd be patient with this, but as soon as I know that F2 never had a reasonable chance at the ball in the vicinity of home plate, I'm acknowledging the OBS. If that ball falls uncaught, it's Type 1. If it's caught, it's ignored.
  17. That would be pretty hard, since the purpose of that exception is to allow F2 to play a ball near home plate.
  18. Careful with this...
  19. If he could hear it, you weren't talking to your manager.

    Dead ball

    He said nothing of the sort, but think you're having that issue, as you are being told by more-informed people that your method is not proper, and you are insisting it is. It is not a good idea to seek out officials to discuss their calls outside of official channels.
  21. That's great--but those comments are the issue, because they show he did not rule properly.
  22. Flip it over. What do the welds look like?

    Leave early

    If the ball is in play, yes, they can run.
