A bunt rolling slowly is a much easier call to make than a screamer down a line.

Perhaps a knee or elbow in the strike zone? I wouldn't consider that to be "out of the box".

So as some have opined, perhaps a better explanation is warranted.

To clarify:

R2 overran 3rd base and did not touch the base. His dugout was on the third base side of the field. When tagged, he was in foul ground and on the home plate side of the base.

Run score?

Men's slow pitch.

Bases loaded, 2 outs.

Batter hits a ground ball to the right of F6 who fields it cleanly. Since his momentum is going toward 3rd base, he throws the ball to F5 who is moving...

I have never seen the situation played out in a game. I'd say I'm unlikely to call that as OBS.

If it were to be considered OBS, what do you think of a line drive just over the glove of a leaping...

I like the change on the jewelry rule.

Yes, USA Softball.

The references to fielders are all messed up, but I copied it directly without edits.

EG: F5 throws to F2 covering second base. VERY fast catcher. :rolleyes:

Equally obvious, I would think is the fact that NFHS cannot legally start the game with 8 players. Nor can NCAA.

So Steve, per the OP, the game really didn't start with 8 players, correct? We're...

I think we always tend to give the benefit of the doubt to the batter and call a dead ball.

But in this case, the BR stepped on a fair batted ball. So does it matter which foot/feet were in or out...
