The gorilla arm is an interpretation, from 2005 I think. As long as the pitching arm is not swinging back and forth considerably it is not a balk. It is a FED interpretation.

I don't have the latest, mine are quite old, but still functional, so I have not seen a need to fork out the bucks. But a partner recently commented that if he knew they would be so comfortable he...

Videos/interpretations not readily available are not very useful. The RLI example is another one, along with the obstruction case, that are not consistent with normal interpretations.

Check page 239 of 2015 BRD, item 368. According to this FED is treated same as NCAA and OBR. The example under OBR is F2 misses 3b due to obstruction and is safe on a close play at the plate. Defense...

For the sake of discussion, lets say there was a runner at 1B, who was slowly making his way to 2B due to the walk. Or, a runner at 2B, who hasn't moved a muscle toward 3B.

Yes. No, but outside is not as easy as other pitches, so if the catcher catches a borderline properly he can help the decision.

Pitchers thinking is more a function of the pitcher, the catcher,...

Two things. One, I don't know why F5 didn't just tag R2 to end the game. Two, I used to run an end of practice drill every practice for about 8 minutes. Everyone lines up at 3B and one at a time we...

I think the security guard picking up the ball is not relevant because by the time he did BR has touched 1b and R3 has touched home and game is over.

Game ending only. MLBUM 4.11 and rule 4.09b in 2014 book, 5.08b in the new recodified 2015 book. On any game ending play, walk, or hit batter with bases loaded R3 must touch home and BR must touch...

More likely an interp. If batter reaches 1b and r3 touches home, game over. Walk off hit, outfield playing shallow since any long fly ball scores R3 easily, even if caught, with one out.

I don't think I would pay $1000 for 3 games in a tournament out of town, or in for that matter. $200k is a windfall, regardless of expenses.

Batter out, runner not, dead ball as soon as it hits him. If he is off the base when it hits him, batter out, runner out, dead ball. Assuming it was fair when it hit him.

Sounds like a money grab. If the teams paid to be there and did not get what they paid for, they should get some of their money back, IMHO. Not your fault, the tournament's fault.

Yes, "that's an illegal pitch", instead of "that's a balk". In OBR it is delayed dead, same as a balk, in FED it is dead ball, same as a balk.
