Yup, you won't find it.

8-2-E addresses the runner's lane (three-foot lane in USA terminology) and has no "last step" provision. 8-2-N dictates that the double base is to be used at 1B in all...

Nebraska uses the same 12/3; 10/4; 8/5 rule in high school as they have adopted for ASA USA JO FP play. JV is on a 1:45 timer.

Batted ball contacts batter/runner - "Out" of the box

Debating this with some local guys. Sitch: Stereotypical bang-bang batted ball bounces up and hits the BR. All codes have this as a dead-ball out if the BR is out of the box.

I guarantee I'm going to end up calling an IP in a 1st & 3rd situation when F1 has her "designed plays" listed on the armband. I'll post here when it happens. :D

Thoughts on a common deviation - (2 man) PU covers 3B on a extra base hit?

I'm not advocating for this deviation, but it's a common one. This came up over postgame sodas last week and I thought I'd open it to the forum.

Sitch: No runners on, 2 man system. Assume a...
