Not really an issue

I didnít think it was an issue but the coach confronted my partner and wanted to know how we put him on first because he didnít try to avoid the pitch. My answer was simple its a curve ball and he...

Thanks for the info - I don't think intentional is in order either as to me its no different than two guys jockeying for position on the lane and we aren't going to call that an intentional foul...

Free throw violation?

Saw a crazy play the other night and have discussed with several other officials and we can't seem to come to a consensus. Thought I'd ask here to see what you guys might have ruled.

I agree with that - good call. Announcers are idiots - if they would watch Davidson's mouth he says "out, he's out of the baseline" - mechanics not good but we've all done stuff like that before...

I agree, that's what should have been called, U3 might not have seen it but U2 or PU should have been able to see it clearly.

I agree this is a bad precedent- doesn't make sense. And i wonder what kind of trickle down effect this will have on game played in HS etc.,

I don't understand what a coach would be complaining about - that just shows that their understanding of baseball is a minimum.

Have they never heard of Luis Tiant? He comes to mindÖ

That's good baserunning - most players would have headed to the dugout.

I agree totally. Most of the time the pitcher uses the "hanging leg" to freeze the runner and continues to the plate.

But in the play, he went to the base - that would be a balk in my games.

Just give the facts

Not necessarily - when giving an explaination give the rule. But of course then you have to 'know' the rules. By giving the rule, you clairify why you called the balk.
