    Just think what would be happening in major sports if OSHA ever gets really involved!

    Anyone wear a cup when working the bases???

    MLB recently requires base coaches to wear "batting helmets"(after the Coolbaugh incident)... Has there ever been discussion of base umpires wearing such protection? or do they already wear inserts?
  4. In the first video the very first pitch, the pitcher seems to move his front leg. which I don't think should be called a balk if it is his normal motio, BUT in subsequent pitches he does not make that same move with his front that leg
  5. I wonder if anybody carried the bat to first base after hitting a home run off Bob Gibson? Then did that same batter ever do it a second time?

    Just wondering if there has ever been a study of Major League umpire's personality make up? My opinion takes a very "strong" personality Type "A"?

    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.

  10. 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??
  12. Somebody made off with his broom????
  13. 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.
