I could see this possibly happening in a 4 man system. Bases loaded. Batted ball to left field. R2 attempts to score. R1 rounds second to go to 3rd, changes his mind and heads back to 2nd. U2 tries...

R2 only ground ball to F6's right in the hole and R2 decides to go.

No idea if its going to 3rd or 1st. If the play is at 1st, you're at best between the rubber and 2nd. If the play is at third,...

And a dropped third strike is not always the same is not a can of corn or a runner scoring at home without a play. It can often be a very close decision.

So you think ruling by not ruling or signaling on a close catch/no catch on a ball in flight is good umpiring? Would you do that in any other situation ever on the baseball field?

Do you all say "ball" on a pitch 1/4 outside the zone? And if you don't, do you silently call called strikes?

And I guess then there is never a need for signaling safe at any point during the...

F3 (or whoever is covering 1st) is going to be stepping towards 2nd to catch this ball. The throw, if it is to pull the fielder off, is most likely going to be either high or towards 2nd.

Even better, why not negligence on the part of the batter? Popping up a ball in foul territory, he's not supposed to do that! Sue him!

Tim,

Good question. I'd suggest taking a moment to read the batted ball. Once you read triple possibility, you can take a pivot farther towards 2B. While this is not ideal on a ball hit to RF...

No time to clear the bat, he's tossing it behind him as the ball is coming in. Which makes for no adjustment to swipe tag and way too close to the play.
