I decided to help out and work a one umpire system for a day. After an umpire didn't show up I ended up with 5 games in 7 hours. My back hasn't been the same since.

Making a wrong a right

1 out - R1 on 3rd, R2 on 1st.

Fly ball blooper between SS and LF caught by the SS. R1 tags up from 3rd and is safe at home but R2 fails to tag up and is called out at 1st for the 3rd out.

Your tag line says that we cannot invent rulings to fit our opinions. The ASA book does not allow us to call "play on". As much as it should be no interference the book doesn't let us...

I think that we are getting away from the point here. I don't think anyone would talk about F3 and F5 as "past the infielder" in this situation.

This is a classic "intent of the rule" thought. ...

Fair or foul?

The ball is popped up and hits the ground past the circle but in front of the base line between 1st and 2nd. It then spins and crosses the foul line between home and 1st. Fair or foul?

Is this...

When is the ball past the fielder?

R1 on 2nd base. The SS and 2nd baseman are playing normal playing depth a step or two behind the baseline, but if you draw a line between them that line is about 7-8' in front of 2nd base. (I hope...

If the home run is a bomb and no one goes out on the ball then the rotation would be 1U to home and PU to 3rd. If one of the base umpires goes out then it would be just like the a 2 umpire system.

The question is did she turn left and stay in the 1st base path or did she turn left and go out of the 1st base path toward 2nd?
