  1. I missed the comma at the end of the Note: and I further wondered why the new paragraph started without a capital letter. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  2. ha ha ha. YES it does. The new Little League app, shows a large gap with the red lettering you show above. This is why I was confused. Thanks,
  3. the following is what exists in the rulebook for 9.01(d) (d) Each umpire has authority to disqualify any player, coach, manager, or substitute for objecting to decisions or for unsportsmanlike conduct or language, and to eject such disqualified person from the playing field. If an umpire disqualifies a player while a play is in progress, the disqualification shall not take effect until no further action is possible in that play. NOTE: The local league has the option to adopt this rule application. The stealing and relaying of signs to alert the batter of pitch selection and/or location is unsportsmanlike behavior. If, in the judgment of the umpire, this behavior is occurring, those responsible including any player(s), coach(es), and/or manager shall be ejected from the game. this was added for 2020: the team manager and those responsible including any player(s) and/or coaches shall be warned after the first offense. Those responsible including any player(s), coach(es), and/or manager shall be ejected from the game for a team's subsequent offense. Does the 2020 addition pertain to any unsportsmanlike conduct?
  4. That is my point, more little leagues are moving to not having a paper "book" but instead just using Game Changer due to stats, etc. I could not find a rule in the LL book as to where a scorekeeper should sit, and if one does not exist...then they can do (sit) where they want.

  5. The scorekeeper has sat in neutral territory, ie right behind home plate (or press box, etc.), when keeping the book and pitch count. With the advent, and wide usage of game changer, I am hearing folks say they like it because "we can sit anywhere". I do not see this covered in the little league rule book. Did I miss something. Thanks fellows, Big Vic

  8. Yep. But it was at that point, when the umpire spoke up and after i explained myself, that i quite. I brought up the issue "to the manager", the umpire disagreed. The end. I am not a donkey. i am sympathetic to a coaches issues during game time. i give them some leeway and i also abide by decisions by the umpiring crew Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  9. Ha ha. I agree,.but a weight shift to a pause, with a "bounce" in body in between woild indicate otherwise. Move foot stop/pause (weight shift) Move hands stop/pause. Resume to secondary positions (foot/hands) I was telling the manager by simply saying "double set". I only said it twice and only after the pitcher continued into a second batter. the umpire told me that he was not set and i kindly explained to him thay i was talking to my manager and not to him. I appoligozed to him if he thoigh otherwise. I never called time out, nor spoke to field umpire directly. The manager did not bring it up, but it achieved the result as the pitcher sped up, and made it obvious. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  10. "as my catcher was in the process of making the catch." This part is key as if he had no possesion, then the catcher has no right to the baseline, even if waiting on the ball. No ball, no right. Sliding is the preferred part of the game for runners (No WWF in little league), my boy was flipped onto his back and was dazed on a play and he waited for a thrown ball to reach him. I asked him what he thought, he said "i guess i should not have been in the way". Ha ha ha. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  11. The pitcher was in the stretch. He brought his forward foot toward the rubber an paused his foot motion (resting his weight) while at same time he brought in his hands together at the top of his chest and paused, then he proceeded to draw in his foot closer (he had to shift his weight) and his hands lowered to his belly and came to a stop (the "normal set position") I said he double set, the umpire said he did not? Can he double, triple, quadrupel set? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

    balk call

    I am only talking about what the feet do, the hands have to complete and act of separation as well. But you did not mention the hands. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

    The first two minutes describes what three options you have for throwing to home or first base. I think you are describing the third move "quick feet" where yoy do not disengage the rubber. If that is what your pitcher did, then it is not a balk. BUT the pivot foot must move a hair faster for that move to be legal. Good luck in arguing that, eh?

  15. I have had the proverbial zombie coach that seems to "forget" to ask for time. I say (with a commanding voice) "do not approach the field coach" and they freeze in their tracks. In your situation, the runner did not give a hoot about anything but getting to second base. The play is not resolved until the batter-runner pauses at first base with no intent to "continue". Until then, the granting of time is not even considered by myself. The coach would have only interfered with his pitcher, right? You did not say that he did any of that. The runner is out, good try...maybe next time. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
