  1. Ah, I see. What happens if he trucks another fielder, that is not the catcher? Out + EJ?
  2. Sure. R2, double to the outfield. R2 obstructed around third base and then trucks the catcher standing with the ball at home. Also, can the defense still appeal the missed tag up if you award them 3B and they never tag up?
  3. OBR, sorry for not mentioning
  4. 1) R2, caught fly ball and R2 is attempting to retouch second base but is obstructed while going back. He a) would've made it back without obstruction and b) wouldn't have made it back. Are they awarded 3B regardless? 2) I can't find anything in the rules about this. If a runner is obstructed (type 2), what actions can they do that would override obstruction? ie interference
  5. Unsportsmanlike conduct, deviated from pathway to initiate contact. Auto EJ
  6. I'll start off by noting my age -- 16. Because of that, I feel like I take more heat than older umpires. Last night there was a close play at first base -- I called the runner safe, and I was entirely confident with my call. Coach comes out and asks for me to ask PU for help because he "had a much better angle than you." I said "she was safe" probably 3 or 4 times, because as I said, I was pretty much positive I got it right. Coach keeps asking, and I say "that's enough" while turning my back to him, which he responds with a "no, that's not enough" and follows me. I say "alright, please go back to your dugout" and he does, but while loudly saying "that's BS, that's BS" (no, not swearing). I chose not to restrict/eject because 1) I didn't feel he crossed the line enough (though if he kept going I would've restricted) and 2) he wasn't swearing. But I am not sure if I should've restricted for this. Can I have some tips on how to better handle situations like these, especially because I'm already disadvantaged because of my age? Thanks!

  8. Definitely interested. Thanks for checking that out! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. Shipping is pretty expensive, isn't it? Something like $35?
  10. Nice deal. Would definitely buy if you weren't in Canada.
  11. Nice! I was referring to my age though... don't worry about that
  12. Ha! What state are you in? (look at my profile )
  13. Yep! Continuous motion only applies when the pitcher has the ball in the circle AND isn't making a play on a runner. It's fair game when the ball isn't in the circle.

    Is this "play on"?

    Let me first state that I exclusively umpire for softball, so if this is incorrect, I apologize. Here is the softball rule: "If a retired runner interferes and, in the judgment of the Umpire, another runner could have been put out, the Umpire shall declare the runner closest to home out." Sounds like interference in this case, but no opportunity to put R3 out (because he would've stayed at third presumably), so just a dead ball with no outs other than the BR.
