  1. You go with that in your game...I'll stick with batter interference, batter out, runners return and I bet I have a better day than you on the field.
  2. The definition of "Lip Service"
  3. This got me thinking. Same play as above 2 outs. No run scores? I did notice in the 2020 interps Fed confirmed passing a runner on a HR is a time play. I assume MC would be the same ? SITUATION 17: The bases are loaded with two outs. The batter hits the pitch over the fence for a grand slam home run. While circling the bases the batter-runner passes R1 between third base and home, before R1 touches home plate. R2 and R3 had touched home plate before the batter-runner passed R1. How many runs score? RULING: The batter-runner is out for the third out the moment he passed a preceding runner, R1. This is a timing play and runs scored before the third out will count, but the batter-runner and R1 will not score. Score two runs. (8-4-2m, 9-1-1)
  4. R2 is out and ejected. Batter may complete his advance and score.

    NFHS New DH Rule

    Yes. We’re on the same page. Didn’t want the OP poster think that simply player B couldn’t come in to pitch.
  6. Frosh. First game. No rep. I still think it’s a valid EJ. I think he pointed the bat to where the ball was, then just dragged the bat. Not exactly drawing a line, but “pointing” the bat at a spot. Same deserved consequences

    NFHS New DH Rule

    Hold on guys...Player B has reentry rights. He can reenter in any defensive position. He can most certainly come in and pitch for player A. The catch is, he reenters in the 5th spot in the batting order. Player "C" is done for the day. Player A, (starting F/DH), is still batting 8th. He can move to CF*, or be replaced in the field by another sub (player D), with his replacement moving to CF*, and Player A remains DH for player D now playing CF*. * or any other position. In the OP CF makes it easier to follow
  8. You should apply for a gig at the Babylonian Bee.
  9. I keep thinking about doing that, because I do take personal time off from work for games. I’m just a little worried about ramifications to the rest of my schedule if I said I’m not working any scrimmages in bad weather. I usually just take the games, a bunch get canceled and I use the time off to do stuff around the house that I know I won’t get to when the season gets going.
  10. 3-13 here.. I've been saying the same thing. We're either going to have a major snow event, or flooding rains in the next 2-3 weeks. Almost guaranteed.
  11. I got to agree with scrounge here. I don’t have numbers but I’d bet SB success rate in HS is significantly higher than any pro level. Add this would pretty much giving 2B to 80% of the kids who get on. Sort of similar to 12u 50/70 ball. of course there’s one other option...,.... LEAVE THE GAME ALONE!!!!!!! #impeachmanfred

    3 Batter Minimum

    Or maybe just leave the game alone? I think it wAs Verducci who did a study and determined this rule actually effected fewer games than one may imagine and the time savings is ridiculously small.
  13. So glad for Chris. He certainly put in the work. I’d love to know what happened in 2016 though.

    3 Batter Minimum

    https://baseballrulesacademy.com/the-three-batter-minimum-rule-and-the-injured-pitcher-loophole/ So if this is correct, if a pitcher comes in with 2 outs in the 7th, retired a batter, he doesn’t have to start the 8th inning. However, if he does start the 8th, he must pitch to 2 batters to satisfy the 3 batter minimum. Can somebody explain how this speeds up the game? another great part of this rule... if a starting pitcher comes out to start the 7 the inning, and the offense puts in a pinch hitter to start the inning, the starting pitcher may be replaced. However, if a relief pitcher didn’t pitch to 3 batters in the 7th , comes out yo start the 8th, and the offense pinch hits for the first batter, that relief pitcher must stay on the game. Sorry, but this rule is a crock of $h*%.
  15. I think it's about time Chris Segal gets one of these full time openings.
  16. It was a question in the on line clinic. I got it wrong. As evidenced by the length of this thread I wasn’t the only a little confused. The question the online clinic posed is, "what should the count be on the hitter after going to video review". I answered 2-2. They say the correct answer is 2-1. Unless it's written somewhere that they changed the interp here, they're saying this is a "do-over".
  17. The difference in FED is with r3 stealing and CI, there’s no balk, but any stealing or forced runner gets to advance. So the only time all runners don’t advance is r2/r3 , r3 stealing home and r2 doesn’t move. Hence, this FRD rule is AKA “ the dumb R2 rule”.
  18. Nothing visible to us on TV. However, both catchers were holding pitches way too long on ball calls. At different times neither looked happy with the calls. I can’t tell you if either bench was giving him crap, but that said, Vanderbilt from what I’ve seen over the past few years, can be pretty “chatty”. I watched the game, and it looked to me like the batter dotted the spot where he thought the pitch was, then dragged it back. I’m not passing judgment on a D1 umpire doing the plate on a big stage nationally televised game. Watching it live, I thought it was a worthy EJ. BTW, I thought his zone was spot on all night.
  19. I'm just a little dubious of a safety authorization on a baseball. I mean, I understand it on a helmet, chest protector, etc... But a baseball?
  20. Is there somewhere the NFHS said this rule change is for safety? From what I can see, this is not a safety compliance change, it's a consistency change.. Rationale: To maintain a consistent and uniform standard for high school competition. To ensure every baseball meets the same level of quality and playability If this was a safety issue, I'd assume the rational would be worded more along the lines of ":To ensure the safety of all participants".

    Tag-up questions

    Evidently none of your 25 year vets took the NCAA test this year, as that was a question this year. It was also on our NJ high school test this year.
  22. Thanks for the kind words Kev. The best part of this question is, it's #1 on the test. Twice I opened the test, read this, and closed it.
  23. My professional opinion is stay away from such an endeavor. You may learn to use the more dominant eye and suppress the sight of the "progressive eye" , but that will play games with your stereoscopic vision and hinder you depth perception. I would not recommend it.
