    3rd Man In

    Hockey, adopted a third man rule for fights... Any thoughts on a third man in rule in baseball? Having four Umpires trying to control two whole squads is a bit crazy, having four umpires controlling two fighters makes more sense.

  4. Always wondered about those third strike theatrics by some umpires, they hate being "shown up" by anybody, but seem willing to "show up" a hitter who missed(maybe) a pitch!

    Stike zone

    Where's Eddie Gaedel when you need him??
  6. Somebody made off with his broom????
  7. From the 2016 BRD (section 325, p. 214): FED: Members of the offense may not do or say anything that might confuse the defense. (2-21-1) No outs R2 and R1...ground ball to F6, he throws to F5 who "tags out" a sliding R2, and throws to F3 to get the BR. Meanwhile R2 has gotten up and is running home, F3 comes off the base, makes a throw to home to get R2(who is already out). BR declared safe at 1st by BU. Is this just smart baserunning by the offense or an attempt to confuse the defense?

    Balk/pitching motion

    I always coached ,that from a wind up position(pitcher has both feet on the rubber and is facing the batter) as soon as that pitcher steps back with his non pivot foot he is committed to throwing home and if you are a base runner with an open base , you break as soon as that pitcher commits.

    Hit by illegal pitch

    "if a tree falls in the forest...?"
  12. Am I correct in believing arguing balls and strikes is an automatic ejection, as is arguing a reviewed play, or throwing equipment? However is pointing to a spot where a batter thinks a ball passed home plate, or drawing a line in the dirt , an automatic (by rule) ejection or an umpire not wanting to be "shown up"?

    Been awhile....

    Story about the two elderly ladies who played softball together for many many years. They promised that whoever went first, would come back and let the other one know if there was softball in heaven. One lady passes and in a dream the other lady has a visit from here friend in heaven> "Please tell me there is softball l in heaven" Her friend says " I have some good news and some bad news." "What's the good news?" "Well, there is softball in heaven." "What's the bad news?" "you're pitching tonight!"
