  1. That is what I wanted to clarify from your first statement: "If" your statement happens and he leaves his foot on the rubber, then it is a balk if he throws anywhere but second base, correct? However, if he makes the twisty motion (correctly) AND steps of the rubber with his pivot foot, then he can throw anywhere he pleases. Is this what you describing?
  2. Noumpere, does your first statement assume that the pitcher's foot does not disengage the rubber?
  3. Whew! That is how I called it this weekend. I figured that a feint meant as you described.. I sold it, they bought it and all was good. I just wanted to double check that in was not making something up. As funny as it sounds...this has never occurred to me, such that the runner made a break for 3rd.
  4. PG (Perfect Game) group (ie USSSA with minor changes) rule set. Assume that the pitcher makes a legal move to second base and R2 breaks for 3rd. If the pitcher does not throw to 2nd, can he throw to: 1) 3rd base 2) the SS, in between 2nd/3rd base 3) or run down R2 - Big Vic
  5. There is an app for that (sort of) and it will give an overview. It is the app in the upper left corner. Happy hunting
  6. Situation: A batted ball hits a defender in flight (R3 takes off for home), and bounces high which is eventually caught. In the Little league rule set the last sentence reads "the runners may leave their bases the instant the first fielder touches the ball." Does this mean that the tag up requirement is satisfied once a fielder "touches" the ball, even though it still may be caught for an out? i.e. If the ball is caught Batter-Runner is out and R3 run scores if they made to home safely. Rule 2.00 Definition of Term A CATCH is the act of a fielder in getting secure pos
  7. If he was hit while hands over the strike zone, a strike. If he was hit while swinging, regardless of ball position, a strike. If he was hit in the batters box, not swinging and attempting to avoid the pitch coming at him, a hit by pitch (gets first base). If he is hit in the batters box, and in the umpires judgement he leaned into the pitch or made no attempt to avoid the ball, a ball. ***you are correct (I was typing while waiting for a covid test result).

  9. The lodging of the ball (as described) is a ball out of play with its own consequences. But that is outside of this topic.

    Passing Runner

    It is a live ball, play on.
  11. Pony baseball Once a pitcher delivers a pitch, may an intentional walk be issued?
  12. Please read the words "he may" bellow as this means the batter runner does not have to do anything but run down legally in the batters lane. If he is in the runners lane and he is hit, then he is not out by this rule. "He may" leave the runners lane to avoid getting hit or a collision, but he does not have to leave the lane. MLB Rule 6.05(k) In running the last half of the distance from home base to first base, while the ball is being fielded to first base, he runs outside (to the right of) the three-foot line, or inside (to the left of) the foul line, and in the umpires judgm
  13. Ha ha ha...stupid spell checker got me again!!!
  14. High school rule set (NHS). Runner on 3rd Can a pitcher (in contact with the rubber) feint a throw to 3rd without it being a balk? Would the situation change if there were a runner on 1st and 3rd?
