  1. Thanks but I already have blue. I was looking to replace my blacks. And I like these bags do the fact that they are thinner.
  2. Anyone with a pair of the older black +POS Ball Bags that has the logo on them looking to move them?
  3. thanks for the link. Unfortunately, they only have navy and I am in search of black bags,
  4. Just when I thought I may have actually succeeded in finding the ever elusive +POS Ball Bag, the deal fell through. So I thought I would give it another shot. Okay, here's a stretch. I am in search of a pair of black +POS ball bags with the +pos logo on the bag. I have used several other ballbags made by other manufactures but i always seem to fall back to the +POS bags. +Pos still has them on their website but unfortunately they also changed the thickness of the material. Thanks ....
  5. 5.09(e) 5.09 The ball becomes dead and runners advance one base or return to their bases, without liability to be put out when- (a) A pitched ball touches a batter, or his clothing while in his legal batting position; runners, if forced, advance; (b) The plate umpire interferes with the catcher's throw attempting to prevent a stolen base or retire a runner on a pick off play; runners may not advance NOTE: The interference shall be disregarded if the catcher's throw retired the runner. ( c) A balk is commited; runners advance; see Penalty 8.05 (d) A ball is illegally batted; runners return; (e) A foul ball is not caught, in which case runners return to their bases. The umpire-in-chief shall not put the ball in play until all runners have retouched their bases; (f) A fair ball touches a runner or an umpire on fair territory before it touches an infielder including the pitcher, or touches an umpire before it has passed an infielder other than the pitcher; runners advance, if forced. Prior to the implementation of 5.09(e), base runners WERE NOT required to retag their bases prior to putting a DEAD BALL back into play. So base runners would stand a few steps from the next base they were advancing to not in fear of being called out since the ball is dead and once the umpire put the ball back into "PLAY", the base runners would just simply step onto the next base they were advancing to. And sometimes you have to ask yourself, "where do they come up with some of these silly rules?"
  6. Thanks Stu but i think this request may take more of an act of God than just good luck...

    Fair or Foul

    A FAIR BALL is a batted ball that settles on fair ground between home and first base, or between home and third base, or that is on or over fair territory when bounding to the outfield past first or third base, or that touches first, second or third base, or that first falls on fair territory on or beyond first base or third base, or that, while on or over fair territory touches the person of an umpire or player, or that, while over fair territory, passes out of the playing field in flight. A fair fly shall be judged according to the relative position of the ball and the foul line, including the foul pole, and not as to whether the fielder is on fair or foul territory at the time he touches the ball. Rule 2.00 (Fair Ball) Comment: If a fly ball lands in the infield between home and first base, or home and third base, and then bounces to foul territory without touching a player or umpire and before passing first or third base, it is a foul ball; or if the ball settles on foul territory or is touched by a player on foul territory, it is a foul ball. If a fly ball lands on or beyond first or third base and then bounces to foul territory, it is a fair hit. Clubs, increasingly, are erecting tall foul poles at the fence line with a wire netting extending along the side of the pole on fair territory above the fence to enable the umpires more accurately to judge fair and foul balls. A FOUL BALL is a batted ball that settles on foul territory between home and first base, or between home and third base, or that bounds past first or third base on or over foul territory, or that first falls on foul territory beyond first or third base, or that, while on or over foul territory, touches the person of an umpire or player, or any object foreign to the natural ground. A foul fly shall be judged according to the relative position of the ball and the foul line, including the foul pole, and not as to whether the infielder is on foul or fair territory at the time he touches the ball. Rule 2.00 (Foul Ball) Comment: A batted ball not touched by a fielder, which hits the pitchers rubber and rebounds into foul territory, between home and first, or between home and third base is a foul ball.
