  1. 3-3-1 says they can only use their on deck circle and while it specifically doesn't say how many players, the wording implies it is just the next batter and the on deck hitter.
  2. Still available? What would shipping to 60124 be?
  3. Good morning. I am selling a BRAND NEW, with tags 46R Black Plate Coat from Out West Officials. I purchased it in December but have lost 25 lbs with another 5-10 to go. I am swimming in the coat and the tailor said taking it in is just too much work and it won't fit right afterwards. Right from their site - Performance Plate Coat v2.0 Stretch fit, moisture-wicking construction, and personalized Monogramming! Please note, monogramming needs to be specified in the notes during checkout - any blank notes will just be considered "FIRST LAST" for the name selection. For that absolute professional look behind the plate, look no further than the Performance Plate Coat by Out West Officials. This is an Exclusive product offered to the best of officials. You are going to love the look and feel of this coat on the field. 100% Polyester for durability in all conditions Sturdy Construction Moisture Wicking Vents under the sleeves for breathability Additional Movement in the shoulders Reinforced pockets for multiple baseballs/softballs two inner pockets. outer patch pocket. Sized for Chest Protector It is wrinkled from how they shipped it to me and because I haven't had it dry cleaned yet, but trust me brand new! I paid $250 for it on sale, just looking to get that back, plus free shipping.
  4. That harness is the most comfortable harness I have ever worn...just saying.

  7. So as the umpire in B, how aggressively do you point to 3rd after the ball goes out of play? I would think that by doing to too aggressively you are "instructing" the runner to go there, and not going back to 1B to re-touch? Then if called out on appeal, they can say that you told him to go there, not back to 1ST base first. But, if you tell him to go to 3RD after re-touching 1ST base, then you are helping the offense and sort of coaching the runner. Just curious how guys handle the mechanics here. Thanks
  8. At a minimum you need to know the most important rules that are likely to come up in a typical game. It is not uncommon to have one of those "I have never seen this before things", and if it does, you will have to logically think thru it. I would say that base awards are pretty important so if you are looking for key things that you absolutely must know, that's one of them - time of pitch vs time of throw awards, etc.

    Out ruling

    no to both. The runners being forced must reach their next base.
  10. depends on the rule set they are playing under. OBR - yes a balk. NFHS - not a balk.
  11. I have two pairs of Smitty's pants for sale, both 36 waist, non expandable style. Charcoal gray, unhemmed, still in the bag. One plate, one base. $30 each. One Gerry Davis 11.5" Navy Blue ball bag, the one WITHOUT inside pockets. Good for softball or for your ball side if you wear two ball bags. NWOT. $10, free shipping Make an offer, I will consider. Thanks
  12. I have to agree with CJK. Bottom line here, your coaches should have known that the runner has to advance and touch the next base. You can't blame that on the umpire or any late appeal.
  13. The answer makes sense to me, I am just looking for that "Coach, by rule he must remain in the dugout" What FED rule or section reference? I am in Illinois. Also, one argument against the dugout is how he could now really rile up his teammates and cause even more trouble. In our game yesterday, the coach sent him to their bus, which worked out well.
