Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: You make the call part 643

Thanks for responding, Tim. So in order for it to be an out, the foul tip has to be caught above the batter's head, unlike ASA where any foul tip caught by the catcher, regardless of height, is an out? Re: the 2nd question, is it a dead ball if the shortstop takes a one-hopper that ends up being caught inside the uniform...foul ball, batter gets first base, or what? I appreciate the clarification.

Two questions...unable to clarify in the rule book: 1) Is a foul tip back to the catcher an out only if under the catcher's head, or like ASA the height makes no difference? and 2) What is the call if a catch is made other than with the hand or glove, ie. caught in the uniform?

Discussion: New rule


Reiterating a comment I made in "Where are the Pitchers" section: I pitched for many years without protection until I, fortunately, caught a hot line drive right off my left cheek. I started wearing a mask. I also started wearing shin guards. This last season I was hit twice with line drives right off my shin. Without the guards I most certainly would have had two broken legs. Instead the ball ricocheted over to the dugout and I had nary a bruise. My feeling toward all the macho guys....it only takes one!...At our age that one could ruin your life. Also re: a mask...the Rip It with a visor is great. A few times out you won't even know its there.

Discussion: where are all the pitchers

Re: pitcher's equipment, I can only say this: I pitched for years without protection until I, fortunately, caught a hot line drive right off my left cheek. I started wearing a mask. I also started wearing shin guards. This last season I had two line drives hit my shins dead on. Without the shin guards I would certainly have had two broken legs. Instead the ball ricocheted toward the dugout and I didn't have so much as a bruise. My thought re: being macho....it only takes one!

Discussion: Equalizer runs

Thanks for the clarification, even though if a team doesn't get the 5th run it really isn't an "equalizer". But now I have another situation: If a 70's team plays a 65's team does the 70's team get 11 players plus 5 runs? We played a tournament where the 70's team was given a choice. It seems that, by rule, a 70's team plays with 11 players on defense. If that team plays a younger team it seems they should also get the 5 runs. Sorry for being such a pain but these situations seem to always result in different interpretations made at the time the game is played.

Discussion: Equalizer runs

Perhaps I am a little dense...I am getting old, you know. The first sentence in your response would indicate a team would get 5 runs even though it only played 5 innings, however the chart still shows the 5 runs given only in innings 2-6. Which is correct?

Discussion: Home Run Rule

If a Major team is allowed 6 home runs, and a AAA team is allowed 3 home runs...How many home runs are allowed when a Major team plays a AAA team?

Discussion: Equalizer runs

Why are not the equalizer runs given in the first 5 innings? My AAA team played a Majors team in a tournament. We were given the 5 runs in innings 2-6. The game was high scoring, time expired and the 5th inning was the open inning. We lost by one run, having never been given the 5th equalizer. The situation is even worse if the team is supposed to get 7 equalizer runs, as games rarely make it to a full 7 innings.
