  1. Thank you Maven. That might be a common core issue.
  2. I thought that might be the case, but wanted to ask to verify. Is there a penalty for the extra warm up?
  3. Is a throw required before interference can be called on R1 for not sliding or peeling off going into 2B? This situation was a routine 6-4-3 ground ball with a 300+ pound R1 running straight into 2B standing up and being put out by 15 feet or more and the F4 either a) double clutched because he couldn't see around R1 and had take a couple steps before throwing too late to retire the BR or b) double clutched before deciding not to attempt to throw to F3 to avoid hitting R1. Are either of this situations interference without the throw hitting R1?
  4. The catcher did not hear (or otherwise ignored) the plate ump say to send it down (i.e. last warm up pitch) and therefore the pitcher ended up throwing an additional warm up pitch. The ump called a ball before the first at bat of the inning began, although no one realized it until after the inning because it was not announced loud enough for the bench to hear. I have not encountered this before. Which NFHS rule covers this situation?
  5. We definitely used CRs for our catcher last night (no need to CR for last night's pitcher). I was however reminded of the downside of CRs when the slow F1/F3 that is usually run for had to run for himself because he was F3 at the time and had already reentered the game. After a big hit that would have been a triple for anyone else, he got doubled off on a routine flyball to CF with 1 out. I blame his lack of base running experience. Maybe that is why it is considered a speed up option because it results in more outs.
  6. We are in the Southern Ohio Conference II if you ever do work down here.
  7. Thanks for everyone's help. I'll try to get clarification through our coach before tonight's game. I like the idea of the CR not just to possibly speed up play, but also to just get more kids involved into the game.
  8. The game in question was against a conference opponent. Maybe all JV games are considered non-league games since they are not varsity games? I think there was some discussion between the 2 coaches and one of the umpires right before the 2nd time we ran for him.
  9. I have become the scorekeeper for our high school JV team. I am new to scoring high school ball and the JV head coach is new as well. I thought he said Ohio does not allow CRs, but it seems like we were allowed to run for the same player twice in our last game and he still went back in to finish the game. This (very slow) player started as F3 and was subbed for after his first hit and then reentered to continue as F3. He later moved to pitcher and in the bottom of the 6th he had another hit. He was run for again, but still went back out to pitch the top of the 7th. If CRs are not allowed, how was he able to pitch the 7th since if he was subbed for a 2nd time he would not be able to reenter again? What am I missing?

    Schrödinger's Foul.
  11. If the ball, F3 and BR are all at the same place at the same time as per the OP, how do you decide whether or not there is a play being made on the BR?
  12. The OP was about a judgement call. What about a rule misapplication? Son's team had bases loaded with less than 2 outs when R2 was hit by a fair batted ball. Umps called R2 out, but allowed R3 to score. I am just the scorekeeper, but I thought that R3 should return to 3B. I told our coaches I what I thought, but did not say anything to the umps. Opponent coaches said nothing. Our coaches said nothing. Run counted. Game ended in a tie. We get a first round bye and end up winning the tournament. Do umpires want outside info in this situation?

    Son's team has faced 2 teams that wasted time like a pro soccer team. At least in soccer you can give a yellow card for time wasting. When they did a pitching change, the new pitcher had to go to the dugout to get a different glove, but it took so long to get that glove that he could been waiting on Amazon Prime to deliver it to him. And then catcher had to go get some water or they did a catcher change at the last moment. These 2 teams were 2 of the best we have faced and really did not need to waste time (at least to win these games, the could have been worried about their next games). These team also only batted 9 whereas most 13U teams near us still roster bat.
  14. That's why we traveled from Ohio to Gulf Shores this week. And have had 2 rain delays in 2 days, plus it is raining as I write this as we wait for the first game of the day. But I am on the beach and it could be dry at the park a few miles away.
