    Intentional Walks

    I don't do much LL, but I thought if a pitch was thrown, the difference is that remaining pitches on an IW would be added to the pitch count. ?
  2. Runners can tag once the ball is "touched". It would be cool though to see if the OF'er could bobble it all the way to the plate. OR, hot potato it there!

    Was that for Joe?

    Coach, in my judgement, the pitcher was not comfortably engaged!;) You know it when you see it!
  5. 7.3.5 F (<was going to use -here) @The Man in Blue A batter is entitled to an uninterrupted opportunity to hit the ball... Once the batter swings, he is responsible for his follow-through. OK MODS, I think we're done here
  6. This isn't a rule change, it's a new rule, right? There are now 2 DH options.
  7. In that interp, the batter didn't swing! ? There is an older interp that states you only have "one opportunity" to hit a pitched ball. The Bugs Bunny cartoon was posted in the thread. 1-3-2 Each legal wood, aluminum or composite bat shall: So, can I come to the plate with all of those if I can swing multiple times
  8. Ok, I'm intrigued! Are you saying the batter can swing multiple times at a pitch, or that FED doesn't prohibit it? The Bugs Bunny cartoon comes to mind.
  9. Can you please explain how this rule is relevant to this situation? The rule clearly states, "This includes the batter, once the pitch has crossed the plate". The pitch was hit, therefore he is no longer a batter. IMO there is no justification on calling R3 out on this play. And, how can you justify leaving B4 on 1st? Where is the ruling for that? In the above rule, nobody advances on the play. Either the batter is out if 2 outs, or the runner is out and the batter remains at bat, he doesn't get 1st!
  10. Is this the "coaches forum"?
  11. Because there’s nothing there. Holding onto the bat in this situation was probably the best choice considering his Teammate was coming in to score. JC. IF, OBS was called here, would there be any discussion on whether or not the call should have been “nothing”?
