Play at plate

Recommended Posts

*i wasn't at game* passed ball. Runner comes in to score. Pitcher comes in to make a play. Runner avoids tag and attempts to touch the base. His hand touches only the black on the plate. Umpire does nothing until pitcher goes over and tags runner and calls him out. Is the runner out?

It's either dirt or plate. Which was it?

Black is not the plate.

On property maintained fields it should not be visible.

I would never tell the coach he just got the black though, just that he missed it.

If starts pointing out the marks highly visibly he's going to be gone.

He didn't touch the plate with his body, because hands are considered part of the bat.

 

:fuel:

 

 

He's out.

It was finger marks on the dirt and finger mark on the black of the plate.

 

Sounds like a job for the forensics team at CSI-Wrigley

I'd be positive his fingernail brushed the plate, regardless of what the coach read in the dirt.

I hope the umpire didn't call any strikes on the black.  Can't have it both ways.

Be consistent. Call it both ways. Ha

Miss an out?-NOPE.

Nope.

What if the home team paints it white? Granted, the bevel should not be visible, but I've seen it painted white.

What if the home team paints part of the dirt surrounding the plate white?  What if the can leaks and there is a white line goign all the way back to the dugout?

Right, that is marked with chalk on either side.
