Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Foul Territory

Any infraction of 6.3 through 6.11 is an illegal pitch. A ball shall be called on
the batter. Runners may not advance. EXCEPTION: If a batter swings at any
illegal pitch, it is nullified and the result of the play stands.

From SSUSA rule book
The pitcher shall not deliver a pitch unless all defensive players are positioned
in fair territory, except the catcher who must be in the catcher's box.

Discussion: Correct Call???

Ump was incorrect. Here is the rule from ssusa rulebook. It clearly states "If there is a play", not if there could have been a play.

Each batter must reach first base without the aid of a courtesy runner. A double bag shall be used at first base, the double portion of the bag being in foul territory abutting first base. If there is a play on a batter-runner going to first base, the batter-runner must touch the portion of the double bag extending into foul territory. He will be called out if he fails to do so, except, in the umpire's judgment, the batter runner is avoiding a collision. This is NOT an appeal play. Important: The defending player has only the white base, in fair territory, to make the putout; his touch of only the bag in foul territory will not result in an out. After the batter runner becomes a base runner, the defensive player may use either portion of the double base to record a put out.

Just notified that Milwaukee Classic overbooked teams. We are now stuck with non-refundable hotel reservations. Hope something can be worked out.
