  3. I guess the ruling is Headley (f5) would have been able to cut in front of Didi (F6) to make the play so F5 is the protected fielder? http://m.mlb.com/video/v915008483/nyycle-yankees-get-forceout-on-interference-play/?query=+interference

  10. Here's a 'double video' of the two CI's this season so far in which they were declined ....

  11. This is an interesting turn of events.   What is called a double play on the field is challenged, and the out at first is overturned. Farrell w/ an EJ after the overturn!   Now, I know this is a banger/whacker, and it's probably impossible to hear this, but ....did you notice the sound you got out of the mic's in the bases on the play at first? Cool, eh?   http://m.mlb.com/video/?content_id=32071445&topic_id=vtp_review&query=yankees challenge call at first
  12. They saw something in the Sox dugout, ...Farrell comes out for a review, ....and they do not overturn it?  Lack of camera angles?   Thoughts?   http://m.mlb.com/video/?content_id=32022729&topic_id=vtp_review&query=play reviewed at second base
  13. I watched the first outing for M. Tanaka of the Yankees on Saturday. I'm a big Yankees fan so I was very excited to see what he's got against MLB hitters. BUT my initial take away was that it looks like he comes close to balking when he's in the stretch. He appears to come set twice. Once at his belt and then again at his chest. If I was doing a high school game and had a kid do this, I would probably be inclined to want to call it. You guys think he gets away with it because his name is Tanaka? I've got it on video and will try to post Ina few minutes. I was surprised no one else has caught this yet.

  17. This is an interesting story that precipitated an added rule being put in place. Rule 8.01(f) states the following: (f) A pitcher must indicate visually to the umpire-in-chief, the batter and any runners the hand with which he intends to pitch, which may be done by wearing his glove on the other hand while touching the pitcher’s plate. The pitcher is not permitted to pitch with the other hand until the batter is retired, the batter becomes a runner, the inning ends, the batter is substituted for by a pinch-hitter or the pitcher incurs an injury. In the event a pitcher switches pitching hands during an at-bat because he has suffered an injury, the pitcher may not, for the remainder of the game, pitch with the hand from which he has switched. The pitcher shall not be given the opportunity to throw any preparatory pitches after switching pitching hands. Any change of pitching hands must be indicated clearly to the umpire-in-chief. ______________________________ There was a Yankees minor leaguer who was ambidextrous. In 2008, he and the batter played a little game of switcheroo repeatedly. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id= NEW YORK -- Ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte can confound hitters -- and umpires -- when he's on the mound. The umps working a game Thursday night between the Class-A Staten Island Yankees and the Brooklyn Cyclones had nothing to go by when Venditte made his professional debut, less than two weeks after getting drafted in the 20th round by the Yankees. He pitched the ninth, and after retiring two batters and allowing a single, a switch-hitter stepped to the plate for Brooklyn. That's hardly unusual. But it becomes intriguing against Venditte, a switch pitcher. Things got a tad dizzying when designated hitter Ralph Henriquez, who had taken his on-deck circle swings as a lefty, entered the batter's box from the right side. Venditte put his specially made glove (it has six fingers, two webs and fits on both hands) on his left hand, and got ready to pitch right-handed. Henriquez then changed his mind and switched sides of the plate, because a batter sees the ball sooner when it is thrown by a pitcher using the opposite hand. So Venditte shifted his glove to the other hand. Then it happened again. And again. And again. Apparently unsure of how the rules handle such an oddity, the umpires didn't stop the cat-and-mouse game until Venditte walked toward the plate and said something while pointing at Henriquez. Umpires and both managers huddled and the umps decided the batter and pitcher can both change sides one time per at-bat, and that the batter must declare first. The ruling favored the pitcher, since he gets to declare last. About seven minutes after he first stepped in, Henriquez struck out on four pitches as a righty against a right-handed Venditte and slammed his bat in frustration. Staten Island won, 7-2. Fast forward to 2010. http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20100330&content_id=8995670&vkey=news_mlb&c_id=mlb&fext=.jsp The umpire was prepared this time with the rule and the pitcher had to declare with which hand he would use for that batter! This just goes to show it is good to know your teams and any oddities that you might be presented with.
