IHSA says...

I'm still in B with R2 and R3. Third base isn't in jeopardy of being stolen. That's the only time to be in C in Illinois. I agree with it.

Presumption of Innocence

...and the pitcher who stepped behind the rubber IS considered an infielder.


You may correctly enforce two bases if he stepped back.

The following quote from MLBUM should help you. Please keep in mind that the MLBUM is a supplement to OBR. That is, it does NOT contradict or supersede it.

An open letter to Bob Pariseau.

Rich "deity" Ives

Ok, the "Practical"

Practically, you call what you see.

I missed a very important part of your post!

This is patently FALSE! You clearly don't understand my dissertation. May I direct you to the chapter "Disengagement" for the discussion of this red herring.

No blaspheming now!

Not a jump turn in which the pitcher steps back.



Oh, they're true. Try to understand them in the context of the rest of the argument. After you've done that, please show me where my logic is...

I so wanted to take a break from this. Darn OCD!

"Such a pick-off move" = "pick-off move to first base by first moving his pivot foot in the direction of third base"

That's not what Cain did. Cain stepped back.

Thanks Carl!

I'm going to grab a seat on the sidelines now. I'll update the tally on election day, November 6, 2012.

ETA: I've got:
One Base Camp=13
Two Base Camp=8 (Thanks, Carl)
Unknown=1 (JJ)

I think you have something there.

Let me catch you up in the thread. No one is disputing that Cain executed a jump step anymore. (I never did.)

I don't mean to be rude, but I'm calling BS on this.

Is it pride?

The secondmost pervasive myth in this thread is that a "jump turn" (including those jump turns in which the pitcher first steps behind the rubber), in and of itself, negates 8.01(e).
