  1. And, PU has a better look at whether the overthrow (at / past first) goes OOP and then still has time to go home if a play should develop there. PU's movement on the initial play is (a) similar to his movement with no one on, except closer to the mound or (b) similar to his movement in 1-person (eek!) mechanics -- out toward F4 (in a normal position), set for any play at second, then a step or two toward the line for the pulled foot / swipe tag at first.
  2. Except: If you have a "seasonla business" you are allowed to take the spring months and extend (the exact definition is on the form) Except: My business accountant now says that this forgiven loan is likely NOT to be taxable income to the business (how it affects ICs I didn't ask)
  3. Agreed that it's BU. The drop-step that BU needs to make is not much different from how BU covers a steal of second.
  4. It's a loan. It's forgivable (generally ) if you do not reduce your employment during the term of the loan. It will become income if it's forgiven, (I assume; that's true for most loans). Think of it as giving unemployment benefits directly to the workers as opposed to having them be fired and filing for it.
  5. Because you are out of position for a swipe tag and pulled foot calla t first -- and those two happen more often than the next play at third.
  6. My 2015 CCA has PU rotating to third "if R1 is safe and attempts to advance to third" and "PU is responsible for any play at third and home." I never liked that, so I'm glad it has apparently changed. I agree it's not needed in 3-man -- that's (part of ) what U2 is there for.

    The Balloon

    Yes, it's better protection. IT makes no difference on the calls -- that has everything to do with the umpire's position and the umpire could work the slot or over the top with either the outside or the inside protector. Working the "super slot" would be difficult with the outside protector.)
  8. And, as someone who has gone through it for a business, it's not really an easy application and you need an sba-approved banker. Some banks have said they won't deal with those who aren't already customers. But, yes, apply.
  9. Some version of 'Don't do that"

    NCAA: 1 base. The specific cite is left as an exercise for the reader.

    1) We're talking about FED not OBR. And "intending to take the set position" is not "taking the set position. Usually when the sequence I am discussing happens, the free foot is not completely in front of the rubber when F1 contacts it, so this is the windup position (assuming eh pivot foot is correct). And, if the batter was in position, this would not necessarily be a quick pitch. Anyway, I *think* SA's point is not to take "getting comfortable" literally. I agree. It's a guideline. And, it works for me. Like all guidelines, if it doesn't work for you, don't use it.

    As I read it, it's just a pitch ( a "weird" pitch, but still a pitch). Similar to play 2 (except the ball was delivered in one instance to first and in the other toward home). I suspect that the way you meant the play and the way I read it might be just different enough to get different results.
  13. No, since the appeal (for the third out) is a force out or by BR before reaching first (depending on which play we are discussing).
  14. The runner need not go to first at all under OBR. I think, under FED, he does (but I say that without looking it up, so take it for what it is) -- so yes, he is out on upon a proper appeal and the game continues.
  15. Yes, but this time it's valid. Never before; never again.
  16. It's still a pitch, and it hit the batter. So, HBP. Dead ball.

    He's entitled to advance without being played on by the defense. He still must advance legally. Once he passed (and stopped trying to reach) the base, he didn't comply with the second ("advance legally") part.

    1) I agree you have to use good judgment here. Was the ball on the way out before F1 contacted the rubber? 2) Never happens in the real world. If it does, then by definition F1 was "comfortable enough" to do something -- award one base. 3) Is not a balk. The method I advocate worked better for me than being overly literal on the wording. I agreed that no one should take the phrase "becomes comfortable" literally, and no one should use it with the coach.
  19. How do you get hit .5 times?
  20. Then, per my original response, BR is not required to advance. Even when he is, some (and I'll have to look for the specific reference) say to *direct* him to first and only get the out if he refuses.
  21. BR is only required to advance if the bases are full: When the winning run is scored in the last half-inning of a regulation game, or in the last half of an extra inning, as the result of a base on balls, hit batter or any other play with the bases full which forces the batter and all other runners to advance without liability of being put out, the umpire shall not declare the game ended until the runner forced to advance from third has touched home base and the batter-runner has touched first base.
  22. D'oh. Missed that part. I apologize. I now agree with that.

    Does the run count

    If R1 is tagged BEFORE reaching second, it's a force out and the run does not count. IF R1 is tagged AFTER reaching and rounding second, it's not a force out and the run counts.
  24. That "the runner has the right to the basepath" -- that's not true when a fielder is fielding a batted ball.
