First, I've never been involved at any park or had friends at any park that did not have at least some issues around "Daddy-ball". Some are worse than others, but I don't think you ever really get...

We had a situation last night where BR didn't realize the catcher had "dropped" the 3rd strike (actually WP) and was half way to the dugout when he responded to the yells of the coach and took off to...

Obviously the situation has been considered by those that make the rules and they chose to only address the pitcher. It concerns me when umpires start making up rules because that's the way they...

I was recently told by an ump that on an infield fly rule, runners do not have to retouch the base if the player does not actually catch the ball. We were specifically discussing FED rules and I...

In the last two weeks we've had two games with similar situations that I'd like to hear some opinions on.

1) R1 coming home, there is a throw to the plate. F2 receives the ball and makes the tag...

Yes. Separate batting from running. Don't confuse the outcome with the stats (scoring). The outcome is an out. But the stats separate batting from running.

You've described two different scenarios. The earlier one does not say F1 "steps back off the rubber". If F1 is in a legal set position and steps back (behind) the rubber with the pivot foot, "he...

Both are the same, scored as a hit/double, caught stealing to 3rd.

You don't want to penalize the players batting average for their running mistake (or the base coaches mistake).

Jerry,

Isn't the real purpose of the rule citing throwing to unoccupied bases to prevent unneccessary delays in the game? It really doesn't matter if F1 throws to 3rd or 2nd, the time required...

The play happened so fast that F1 could not have determined if R1 was retreating or going, he simply reacted by throwing to 3rd. As it happened R1 retreated... but maybe R1 retreated because the...
