  1. The fielder did not control the ball through the initial tag attempt and by the time the runner was actually tagged the base had been reached, SAFE.
  2. Six inches shorter from first to second for base stealers!
  3. Similar play, R3, one out, and a fly ball to left center field. F7 runs over to catch it. The ball hits F7s glove and bounces up into the air. R3 tags up and takes off for home. F8 runs over and catches the ball before it hits the ground. F8 throws to F5 to appeal R3 leaving early. Ruling, R3 did not leave early even though he left "before" the catch was made. As soon as the ball was touched by F7 R3 was free to tag up and advance.
  4. I allow the appeal unless I'm working Solo !!!
  5. My brother plays in a Vintage Baseball league where throwing and hitting the runner is an out! Lots of interesting rules.

    Does the run score?

    So what happened after the Protest?
  7. Do a YouTube search of baseball games from 1920s, there are many. Some of Babe Ruth show him at the plate and you can see how the umpire was dressed and how/where he stood and his plate mechanics.
  8. Once they agree the Protest is lost. If they don't approve the TD would call the Region/Williamsport and I can pretty much guarantee they would say move the game and keep playing.
  9. I've never left more than $500,000 worth of jewelry in my car.
  10. So what happened after the Protest?
  11. Yup, it's pretty old but still pretty funny!
