  1. So what was the consensus? Is the move in the OP a balk?
  2. At the younger ages the big ones are: -never coming set -start then stop -shoulder turn to look at 1st -fake to 1st on pickoff Beyond that it can get excessive depending on the age
  3. Regardless if I got the original call right, I definitely have learned some great advice from everyone.
  4. Chicago suburbs, there is one third-party organization that handles almost all travel (including tournaments) and rec ball in area. That's the norm here. It used to be rec playoffs and tournaments got 2 man but it's slowly moving to more and more solo.
  5. Only wish it was that easy. My organization has a major shortage, week night double headers for rec ball and solo tourney ball...so bad.
  6. Yeah I messed up on that part of the play. Should have just called him safe unless I saw a clear leaving early or he got tagged. Well now if that situation ever comes up again, I'll know what to do.
  7. Had one girl squared to bunt and never pulled back and hit on the top of the helmet. FED- requires the bat to be pulled back in softball. So a dead ball strike on a head shot.
  8. True, I followed the throw from F6 but maybe could have move quicker to look at R3
  9. Solo ump Fed rules Bases loaded, 1 out, fly ball to F6 near second, call infield fly, watch catch He throws to F5 on the bag, runner was well off the bag and running back. I called him out for leaving early (assuming he wouldn't go back if he had tagged). He starts complaining that he tagged up. How as a solo ump do you see the catch and tagup?
  10. Yes, you can appeal for advantageous 4th out.
  11. 2 bases from the time of the pitch (1st play by infielder) So R2 scores and BR will be at 2nd
  12. That's why I suprised when the coach started asking. My question above was more a general question.
  13. Thanks. The coach was convinced the batter has to totally get out of the way of any fielder. I tried to explain that only the fielder most likely to make the play is protected but I think he got more confused. And hard to follow the batter and the ball going towards the fence with only 1 ump
  14. 14u FED rules, 1 man Pop foul on 1st base side Pitcher, catcher, 1B go for it, it drops between them After inning coach came over and asked if the batter going towards first is interference. I did not see the batter do anything, I was looking at the potential catch. But do I protect all 3 fielders or is it the same as any other batted ball where only 1 fielder gets protected?
  15. May to now about 40. I'll typically get to 50-60 when travel starts to wind down in July.
