  1. My take is that the rule wording in question simply means that a pitcher who disengages needs to start over with the whole assuming the set position process. Keep it fair for the batter and runner.
  2. Sealskinz goretex socks with a thin wool or polypro sock underneath. At least they work for me while sailing, paired with Keen sandals, in the PNW in the winter.
  3. If it happened I think this place would blow up. Those guys are the best of the best. BTW, Zunino sure thought he went!
  4. I agree with Pedro in the post-game show, who mentioned that Altuve's lunge forward make it look like he swung his bat past the front of the plate. Depending on the angle shown it either did or didn't look like an offer to me. Seems sensible to check with your partner though, just to avoid this very discussion.

    Runner interference

    Hmmm...I'm open to your thoughts - but the text seems pretty darn clear to me: "... If a fielder drops a batted ball and contact with a runner occurs during a subsequent attempt to field the ball, the fielder has the greater responsibility to avoid contact." After a misplay and a "chase", and the fielder is back within a step and a reach, how is the following action by that fielder NOT part of "a subsequent attempt to field the ball"?

    Runner interference

    Okay regarding "re-establishing protection," to recap I've got: Fed - cannot "re-establish" protection for fielder (NFHS 8-4-2 g. 1.) NCAA - can "re-establish" ("Note 5" quoted by @Jimurray, don't know the rule number) OBR - can "re-establish" (2013 Wendelstedt footnote 338 provided by @Senor Azul) Thanks guys, this has been a helpful conversation.

    Runner interference

    Re: "varies by code," on action after the muff, I've got: NFHS 8-4-2 g. 1. "... If a fielder drops a batted ball and contact with a runner occurs during a subsequent attempt to field the ball, the fielder has the greater responsibility to avoid contact." OBR - I can't find any such caveat. Are there any approved rulings that relate directly to re-establishing protection? (I don't have the umpire manuals or Wendelstedt.)
  8. I was instructed by my association to never ever ever have an indicator on the bases.

    Interference

    Off-topic kinda: A very good local HS player has the last name Bauck. Yes he pitches. And yes the coaches yell at him by last name all the time...
  10. What is the "meathook interpretation"? Search didn't help me...
  11. This topic reminds me of this little gem:
  12. You also don't poof the runner on HBP.
  13. Should plate umpires be using mouth guards to protect against concussions? I get it that it would be harder to enunciate, but "ha!" doesn't need to be super clear. Just wondering.
