I agree, a slowly hit or bunted ball that is allowed to come to rest in the hope that it might roll foul should be ruled fair if it overhangs the edge of the foul line. I think that is a much harder...

Just googled "ball kicks up chalk" and came up with an old thread from this forum from July 2001. There was a side taken by Carl Childress and the other taken by Rich Ives. Nobody called Carl obtuse...

Please explain how my reasoning is obtuse or tangential. The puff of chalk is the only thing that allowed ULF to make the right call. What is rather obtuse and tangential is trying to parse what...

Because it kicked up chalk. An inch to the left and it would not have. I really doubt he would have "seen the shadow" and called it fair.

Precisely this play happened in the Ray/Ranger game tonite. The ump had all but called it foul until he realized it had kicked up chalk.

So now PU Danley completely kicks a call on a dribbler in front of the plate. Totally incompetent call. Not to mention his zone is bad.

This is what I proposed in a prior thread about the fair/foul call that ended the Cubs/Astros game. There was a view that a ball could be fair if a small portion of it was over but not touching the...

Do the evaluators send a memo to the players after they advise a sudden change in the mechanic or are they responsible to get it by osmosis?

None of the reports said exactly where he called. That's why I surmised we could figure it out according to standard dugout phone wiring. I also had no idea when he went down the tunnel that it was...

When Crawford muffed the catch last night, U3 could clearly be seen giving an emphatic safe signal. Is the mechanic for him to also say "no catch"?

Why wouldn't the PU use the same mechanic for a...

It requires a play to be attempted on another runner. Just catching the IFF is not a play being made on another runner.

Steve, I don't think all rule sets are the same for an uncalled IFF. NCAA and FED "expect" the players to recognize an IFF even if it is not called. In OBR, it is not an IFF if it is not called....

Please correct me if I am wrong, but don't some rule sets say that the infield fly still applies even if the crew does not give the verbal call. If so, that doesn't seem proper at all - how are the...
