CR 8 contradicts as well

I've been thinking about this one today. "CR 8 Situation: The coach of Team A sends out a courtesy runner for F1 and fails to report the change to the UIC. Ruling: Upon entering the game, the CR...

Who even asked?

PABlue, do you know how this question even came up? I've seen this happen numerous times--more at JV than varsity, but no one ever thought twice that the catcher or pitcher wouldn't bat in their...

So sorry for your loss

BNR, I'm a big fan of your posts and always appreciate your wisdom. I'm grateful to the friend you lost for getting you on the court. That act (and his career on the court) has paid forward for so...

Without seeing the actual data, I'll go ahead and presume (for now) that the statistical analysis is sound. My reaction is that I'm sure there's something to it, but that it's subconscious at most. ...

"Too far" is far enough that a potential strike in the bottom of the zone can hit the dirt before the mitt. Why won't I call it a strike? If I am fully convinced it was a strike, I'll call it. But...

Mitt question has been answered.

At 12U there's a high probability of a catcher too far back, and a high probability of strikes hitting the dirt because of it. (At the higher levels, there's more...

I know we all intend to call every play on its own merits and with consistency across the game and crew. And it is more of a rookie thing and shouldn't be at this level, BUT, if you no call and then...

Agreed--I've felt like there's been far too much watching the backs of the officials' heads while reviewing monitors to adjust the clock after what seems like every stoppage of play.

I'm appalled by this, but sincerely curious as well. Are you to have the kids remove their warmups, check numbers/names as well? At what point does your "responsibility" end there?
