[QUOTE=IRISHMAFIA;683403]The umpires on the field just killed the ball, and "sold" the runners would have had the base made, so they allowed them to stay.

This type of ruling occurs too often as umpires try to be "fair" and use that to justify a ruling without regards to the actual rule.

Did the catcher have a play? Can't tell since the ball was hit with the bat as she reached for it. That act there kills ANYTHING and if the runners did not have the base by that point (they did not), the minimum is going back to the previous base.

Umpires need to remember there are two teams on the field and they deserve equal treatment. The offense is the team that caused the problem, so I cannot see "rewarding" them with a free base.[/QUOTE]

Couldn't agree with you more. Offense causes the problem and ends up with two runners in scoring position in a championship game.
Good sitch to post...(one of those 'weird stuff' happens sitches)...and to learn from.

The next beer is on my tab.

Yeah. I am not a fan of the Amber Ale. A little on the sweet side. Otherwise, sort of lifeless. There aren't many St. Arnold's beers that I drink, though I will drink them if there is nothing else available. Their Oktoberfest is pretty good.

Tried it as an entrant in our annual family reunion beer-tasting. It was ruled "cough syrup" and scored low.

Maybe that's why I haven't had a cold in years!

Never tried the Cherry Wheat. It has two things going against it. I am not a fan of fruit beers (including true lambics), nor fruit in beer (just for the record). Also, I am not real big on wheat beers, though there are some I like enough to drink once in a while. (See previous reference to Erdinger's Dunkelweiss.)

I guess this should be in the little ball forum, but after the Dos Equis comments, I had to share this:
