    Fielders Choice

    From the rules book: (b) The official scorer shall not credit a base hit when a: (1) runner is forced out by a batted ball, or would have been forced out except for a fielding error; -and- FIELDER’S CHOICE is the act of a fielder who handles a fair grounder and, instead of throwing to first base to put out the batter-runner, throws to another base in an attempt to put out a preceding runner. The term is also used by scorers (a) to account for the advance of the batter- runner who takes one or more extra bases when the fielder who handles his safe hit attempts to put out a preceding runner; (b) to account for the advance of a runner (other than by stolen base or error) while a fielder is attempting to put out another runner; and (c) to account for the advance of a runner made solely because of the defensive team’s indifference (undefended steal).
  2. Did you just call your wife a rat?
  3. It's not and NFHS position. It's a NJ position, as I understand it.
  4. I don't mean to pile on, but I agree with the first half of that statement.
  5. Thank you for being a fan of LL baseball.
  6. Again -- it's better to let it play out, and then you can put the runners back if needed. If you kill it when you should have left it live, there's always going to be an issue as to what to do.
  7. The pitcher might have some restriction, and helmets can't be "mirrored" in FED, but there's generally no restriction on fielders' sunglasses.
  8. "The infield shall be a 90-foot square."
  9. Yes it is. It's an appeal that R1 missed second. He didn't (I'm assuming), so R1 is ruled safe on the appeal.
  10. Some (lots) of this might be the difference between baseball and softball, and FED and OBR. In FED and OBR baseball, I have no interference; even if it's called only get one out.
  11. Did the defense appeal? Was anyone watching the tag-up?
  12. Based on the video below, it doesn't look like the "play stops" until everyone advanced a base, and F6 had the ball in the infield (which, in MLB, means no one is likely to advance any more). calling "time" at that instance isn't really needed, but it doesn't hurt and, especially in our games, it might get called eventually anyway because someone is going to want an explanation. IT does point out that more often than not, it's better to just let things play out, and then put them back if needed (retroactive time) as opposed to calling time because "that surprised me and it must be something" and then having to figure out "what would have happened."

    Chasing out play

    Might work in pro ball; I would think it would be "too harsh" for youth coaches.
