I'll bite on a WBC rule

Each team must make 9 US born position players available for the WBC. I'm tired of teams like Italy and Australia embarrassing the US team because MLB has chosen to opt out of the WBC. I'm also...

Copyright Attourney?

Evans should drop the lawsuit to develop MLB umpires. What was it producing, 20 grads a year?

He should then publish and sell his baseball rule book, case notes and historical accounts to the...

Let's finish the inning!

Section 6. A RUNNER MUST RETURN TO THEIR BASE.

Improper NCAA Ruling?

It wouldn't seem “fair” to call B4 out and return R1 to third base.

B4 is out and R1 scores, and R2 and R3 are declared out. Three outs.
B4 returns to bat, R1 returns to 3B, and R2 and R3 are...

Disqualification?

Your right. ASA 5-5-B Scoring of Runs and NCAA rule 6, section 1 should have been annotated to disallow the run.

I should have asked if the Substitute/Illegal Player rule wipes off that run?

Declaring runners out?

Not replying to any particular post. My NCAA rule 5, section 6 is the MLB 4.09 equivalent to how a team scores?

Loophole to How a team scores?

Offensive coach would surely know the run should have counted and argue for it.

This NCAA ruling isn't listed as an exemption to scoring a legal run in rule 6, section 1.

Triple play?

BR is out as a result of playing action.
R1 passing R2 on baseline is out before the pitch.
R2 returning to touch 1B, is also out before the pitch, travesty of the game.

Ruling same as NCAA,...

Crashing baseman?

He's allowed to crash in MLB. He is not allowed to crash in NCAA or FED.

The slide may have been legal, but the upper body, arms wailing out toward the baseman was not legal. Given the slide...

Step off, step back or back off?

I think you nailed him simulating a pickoff to third, but the other folks here seem to think he legally disengaged from the rubber. They claim Jim Evans says it legal, so it's legal, right?

Sheesh, those umpires erred. That was not a balk. Both are BAD calls and embarrassing to the profession.
