That's one of those "coachisms" or "fanisms" if you will, that we hear so much of. I believe ISF may follow that procedure, but under all other codes (ASA, FED, NSA) it's 2 bases, period. Runner...

If the batter never became a batter runner, your first portion of the post does not relate to the situation (as you use batter-runner there, but only batter in the second portion). Which is...

I think... (I'm trying not to hurt myself too much though)

that if I remember correctly, on strike three, the batter automatically is considered a batter-runner. If the third strike is not caught, he's free to try for first. If the third strike is caught,...

Good

I've always liked the idea of the adults (coaches) taking a walk and letting the kids play. This just goes to show that it can be done. Sounds like you had a pretty good tourney overall rachel.

Someone's got some 'splainin to do. That ain't right. I don't care who backed out or what, you said you'd do games for $xxx per game. Not right.

If were' talking 12U age group or lower for rec ball, I'll say "batter's out" on a D3K. If they're older than that, it's time for them to start learning the situation, rules, and strategy of the...

Don't know what they work in the European Championship (2 or 3 man) but the BU could be out in positions B or C depending on the situation and the number of blues they have. Just a thought.

A bounding ball is foul when I throw my hands up to signal dead ball and yell "FOUL!"

A bounding ball is fair in all other circumstances.

Where it hit the bag doesn't matter :).

Agreed ASA/NYS. Something else I have thought of before is that a rubber band around the hair (to make it a pony tail) must be tight. Tough to get a finger or something in underneath it. 9 times...

I understand your logic behind THEY wanting us to, but I don't understand why it has to be done on strike three. The prinicple stated above is still correct. If the umpire doesn't call a dead ball,...
