Thanks guys! I've had a good laugh too. ISA stands for Independent Sports Association. I think they're primarily based in the Southeast. To clarify, the umpires only advanced the runners on 2nd...

ISA rules. Two outs. Ball hit to infield. Easy out at 1st. 1st baseman got excited and pulled her foot off the base early. Not completely obvious, but she did pull her foot. Field umpire (who was...

True story--Local certified, trained umpire here with the worst combination--tremendous arrogance and narcissism, but no common sense or interpersonal skills. The other umpires literally refuse to...

Wow. Thanks. Well, I AM a physician (when I'm not standing on a ballfield), and I say that is being WAY too picky. If the injury is that severe to begin with, I'm gonna take a pair of scissors (or...

The rule prohibiting tinted eye shields on the defensive player face masks will become a big issue as time goes by. There's a company out there that is pushing tinted face shields for those masks,...

A PU handed me his mask a few days ago while he was explaining something to a young player. I remember thinking there's no way I'd stand back there with just this on my head. The full helmets are...

True, but I think the point of the quiz is to see how you would handle the unthinkable if it happens. The game must continue. You have to pick one of those options.

Why would they stay on the bag after the 1st baseman falls down? What do they have to lose? I can tell you what they have to gain--a run scored if the interference call is not made.



Agree. ...

The catcher is not a leaning post

Rant warning. Fed game. I realize there's going to be inadvertent contact between the PU and the catcher quite frequently, but when the PU decides to put his hand on my catcher's back during every...

I think the reason you see a difference is because pitching a softball is one of the most difficult things to learn in athletics. As a result, most of those girls have a private pitching coach that...

Here's my opinion as a coach over the years. Before the game during warm-ups--let the parent catch. I'm glad for the help. Between innings--the parent also needs to be one of the designated...

LOL. My parole officer told me to let it go. :) From this point on, I'll probably be the only guy around here who refers to it as the plate instead of the mound.

I do not agree. It's VERY easy to see if that foot is on top of the plate. If you cannot see it from behind the plate, the FU should have an easy bird's eye view of it from the side. Call it. I...
