    Thanks, that's what I thought but couldn't find the rule to back it up. I'll re-read 8.05(g) when I get home from work.

    I had the chance to watch a game last week after I had finished mine and saw a balk called by the BU but after he and the UIC talked the BU changed his call. DC called time for a conference with his infield. After the conference the pitcher stepped on the rubber in the windup position with bases loaded. UIC called play, signs taken and pitcher steps off rubber and moves down the second base side of the mound then comes back on the mound but never re-engages the rubber, he is still just inches behind the rubber. Bends over like he is taking the signs from the catcher, nods his head and appears to start his windup. All runners make moves off bases occupied at which time the pitcher throws to third in an attempt to pick off R3. Is this a balk? Pitcher was not on the rubber so he would be a fielder? It was a definate attempt to trick the runners. So what would the proper call have been? I could see he was not on the rubber and most everyone else probably could see the same and when I was coaching I taught my boys to never leave the bag until the pitcher was on the rubber. So what's the call?
  4. My eyes and ears are bleeding after watching these ..................... quick!
  5. Season begins tomorrow. I have 40 games scheduled plus the 4 scrimmages I worked last week.
  6. Scheduler/assignor doesn't assign postions, we decide ourselves where we are working.
  7. :( Forgot to add, it sure is nice to have catchers that can actually catch! :HD:
  8. I called my first high school game(s) tonight. Had the dish for the first one and was about ready to tell my partner not to worry about it, I'd take the second one too but he said he was looking forward to it so, to the field I went. We had two JV games, and if I wasn't hooked before, I am now. :(
  9. Don't remeber the year but a former A's owner introduced Yellow/Green/Chartruse (sp?) balls to baseball many years ago. The best I remember of that experiment was they weren't accepted due to they went against tradition.
