Inadvertant Home Run Ruling

Recommended Posts

This has never happened to me nor I have seen it happen, but someone asked and I can't find a reference.  My gut is an umpire goof type thing and place runners accordingly, but not sure.

 

FED Rules:  Ball is ruled a homerun with corresponding signal.  Someway, somehow the high school umps figure out the ball never left the field but actually just looked like one.

What would be the ruling on how to place runners?

 

Thanks.

Fix it, and put the runners back where they should be. FED 10-2-3l (that's a lowercase 'L') gives the UIC this authority: "Rectify any situation in which an umpire's decision that was reversed has placed either team at a disadvantage."

If your question is, "how do we know where the runners go," the answer is: we use our judgment, based on where the ball was hit. We know what a double or a triple looks like, and we know where the runners end up. Use all available info (2 outs or not, runners going on the pitch or not, etc.).
