Two outs to harsh? okay the runner at third is out on the interference and the batter is awarded first. The key thing here is it is NOT a pitch but interference by the batter.
Agree 100%. Interference. Dead ball. Runner closest to home out. BR to 1B.

If you are calling the interference, you get 2 outs..

BR had 3 strikes.
Interference makes the ball dead.
BR can't go to first (like on a swinging, batter hit by pitch, stike 3)

Not like I want to continue this nonsense///////

This guy made the most of a dropped third strike...I don't speak the language, but I am pretty sure I heard "WTF" in Japanese.

YouTube - Dropped Third Strike = Home Run
I like the part where the umpire ridicules the catcher.

He did good going for help right away - I like how the umpire got to make a little speech after the play.

Yeah, I found that kind of odd that in Japan, the umpires talk directly to the crowd, similar to professional football here. Maybe we should consider doing that here?

Crap, like it'd do any good...

Though I was waiting for someone to fall into a water pit or have something spring up from the ground and whack them in the nuts.

I won't be coming here that much anymore. I might check in now and again.

i got to kind of do something like that.

If I remember right it was 14U. IFF , the usual chaos, dropped ball, people running around in anarchy then...dead silence...so I gave'em what i had in a booming voice.
"Runner on 1B is out due to the IFF, runner at home was tagged before touching home so we have a doubleplay and the inning is over."

Everybody started talkin again and kids started moving again. I wish I would have had a bullhorn so I could have given them my spiel on legalization of some naturally growing stuff.

I knew there was something wrong with you.. I just couldnt put my finger on it!!!

Might as well be legal.. for under 1oz in CA its a $340 fine, no probation, and in 2 years, the record is automatically sealed and destroyed - completely wiped out. Not even speeding tickets are sealed and destroyed like that. Besides you can just go get a fake prescription for it like everyone else. Just dont have a pipe on you....

I am fully aware of how the game is played in California.

Just kidding of course.

What I practice is on a drop third strike I step out of my position and hold. The coach should at that time know that the batter is out and she needs to vacate the box and sit down for not swinging at a third strike.

There are a lot of things coaches should know. Hell, just from hanging around the diamond they should pick up a few things by osmosis. Yes, some know. For others ... no, they don't know. (Side note: Coach, go get a frappin indaclickerator down at the sporting good store.)

Apart from trying to understand what you wrote, you should not do anything on a dropped third strike that you don't do on any other strike three call. By doing something "different" you are potentially sending clues to one team or the other (at least those that are savvy enough to pick up on it) that you have a D3K situation. This is getting too close to coaching as far as I am concerned. Call the game and let the players play.

The only exception to this would be if 1st base is occupied with less than two outs...then you can add "BATTER'S OUT!" after the strike three call. But some may even question that.
