Half Swing Strikes

NCAA Mechanics Change:

In the past, if a right handed batter tried to check his swing, the HP would go for help to the first base umpire in a 3 man system and would always go for help to the third base umpire for a left handed batter.

Effective with the 2012 season, if the HP umpire goes for help on a half-swing with runners on base, he will appeal to the base umpire that is standing on the foul line and will not seek help from a base umpire who is positioned in the middle of the infield. There will be no change with no runners on base.

Fall ball guys are being told to use this now.
