Runner Lying on base

Situation: Men's ASA Slowpitch - R1 on 2nd, R2 on 1st - Batter hits ball into outfield, R2 is a much faster runner than R1 and is right behind R1 when approaching home plate. Ball gets to catcher...

I think that in fast pitch it would make sense that F4 would cover the bag when F3 comes off to field the ball. My experience has been that in slow pitch this is rarely done. From what I have seen...

Here in the Chicago area there are a few different types of Co-ed SP played.

"B2 has 3-2 count and hits a pop up near the on deck circle."

How far was the on deck circle from 3B?

How far off the base?

If you want a fast game, do Co-Ed 16" SP. I've done about 20 games this year ranging from 32-54 minutes. Do 4 of those in a night, just about the easiest $100 I've ever earned.

I know I say something like that when the game ends by time limit or by run rule, but I don't think I do when it ends normally. Then again I never really thought about it. :)

Good - I believe I ruled correctly then. R2 was out on the force at 2B and R1 I ruled out on the interference. BR gets 1B.

If this had been a close and/or serious game then I'm sure there...

We all got a good laugh!

ASA Mens 16" - R1 on 2B, R2 on 1B, 0 outs - Batter hits a ground ball to F6, who thows to F4 for the force at 2B - F4 goes to throw to 1B when R2 jumps in the air and blocks the ball into the...

Does this apply in this situation also?

R1 on 3B, R2 on 1B - 2 outs

Batter hits ball to F4, R2 stops running to 2B, and F4 tags R2 after R1 touches home - since R1 was forced to go to 2B the...

Correct call on protest as long as this wasn't Men's Class A Slow Pitch. In which case the bases do not need to be run and no appeals can be made.
