Question

Guest Uirish

R1 is on first. The pitch is in the dirt and is blocked by the catcher. As the ball is rolling away, the catcher removes his mask/helmet and uses it to stop the ball.  What is the award?

OBR: one base (5.06(b)(3)(E)).

FED: two bases (8-3-3c1).

2019 OBR rule 5.06(b)

(3) Each runner, other than the batter, may without liability to be put out, advance one base when:

(E) A fielder deliberately touches a pitched ball with his cap, mask or any part of his uniform detached from its proper place on his person. The ball is in play, and the award is made from the position of the runner at the time the ball was touched.

2019 NFHS Case Book Play 8.3.3 Situation L:  With two outs and R2 on second, B4 strikes out, but the pitch gets by F2 and is rolling toward the backstop. F2 chases the ball down and stops it with his mask. RULING:  This is a delayed dead-ball situation. R2 is awarded two bases from the time of the infraction at the end of playing action.

2019-2020 NCAA rule 8-3g. If a fielder intentionally touches a fair ball with a cap, glove, mask, helmet or any part of the uniform while detached from its proper place on the body, the runners are awarded bases which shall be determined by where the runners were at the time of the illegal touching. The call is a delayed dead ball and the runners may advance further at their own risk.

3) If it is a pitch, the individual shall be entitled to one base. The bases to be awarded shall be determined by where the runners were at the time of the touch. In all cases, the runners may advance further at their own risk.
