Working a 10u tournament this weekend. I'm on the bases in C with R2.
The pitcher sets, then raises his leg and pitches with his knee going past his pivot leg before committing to home.
I called nothing but between innings the offensive coach asked about it because his runner started back to second.
What say you?
I was PU during U12 tournament played under FED rules. In middle of game, HC asks me to "watch the other team" between innings because they had "too many batters" in front of their bench area between innings swinging bats while his pitcher was throwing warm-up pitches. I told him I'd "keep an eye on it" but the game ended early (mercy rule) and it never came up again.
Post-game I looked up FED rules and all I found re: this situation is 3-3-3: "Players loosening up to bat shall remain in the area of their team's on-deck circle while the pitcher is warming up."
Does anyone know if FED (or other rule sets) limits the amount of players who can warm up between innings?
Had a situation yesterday as follows:
JV Fed Game. Bases loaded, no outs. I'm PU.
Groundball to SS, R2 plows into SS as he is trying to field the ball. Partner did not kill the play as he thought it was a delayed dead ball, so I stepped in and killed it and called R2 out and returned R3.
I know we can get more outs based on the possible prevention of a double play. At the time we did not rule any additional outs, but immediately after the inning I was thinking we should have potentially gotten 3 outs.
R2 for interference, and R1 and BR for the prevented potential double play.
Is this too many outs to get from this play? For sure I am thinking we should have gotten at least 2, R2 and R1 at least.
Thanks for your thoughts, this play doesn't occur too often and I want to be better prepared next time.
Wanted confirmation of a ruling we made from a Varsity Fed game from Monday.
Bases loaded, outs don't matter.
Chopper to 1st base, he comes home with the throw to try and get the force, but the ball isn't it time and hits either the catcher or batter (unsure) and deflects into the dugout.
2 base award from TOP? This is what we ended up doing. I was thinking this is correct since the deflection was not intentional or a secondary action.
