Discussion: courtesy runner

same general situation:runner slides into second, time is called, he needs attention for torn pants, goes to dug out for repair. Out? While not quite the same, the rule should be interpreted the same. Coyrtesy runner is in the game when he touches the base. As this did not occur-- and ball was dead therefore no offense or defensive play can be made, NO CALL.

Discussion: obstructed base

SSUSA has addressed this issue @ rule 8.6. This states that a runner can miss the base to avoid collision & continue & not be called out. Hard to find but I am sure it's in there.

Discussion: Unloader Knee Brace

i wear them on both knees to play. cuts down a little on mobility left & right & can't jump up quickly after a dive. pain is reduced a small amount while on the field, but more so AFTER play. I also have orthotics to correct a severe bow legged condition. I am currently looking into the stem cell therapy, as I had it in my heart 4 years ago. Anything to keep us on the field!!

hey Dix-- you should be upset with teams in your division for NOT going. The wounded Warrior game & all the other events sponsored by SSUSA made my trip worth while, despite not finishing well. guess not all can see the forest for the trees.

Discussion: The TOC

i consider this an elite event & am proud to be a part of it. It's more than just another tournament. i wonder why / how teams are shorthanded as each qualified team had to have had enough players to win a major tourney. I realize that players move during the off season, get hurt & even retire, but at the time that a team qualifies is when a commitment should be made. Our team earned a berth @ mid summer and immediately began making arrangements. We lost a player to mortality & will celebrate his life at the T.O.C. as a team. Curios as to circumstances that cause a team to become shorthanded?

Discussion: The TOC

i understand the points made here. our team has had the same basic players, with age being the mitigating factor, from 50's thru 55's & now 60's, & really enjoy playing @ T.O.C. when qualified. The experience ( with all that SSUSA offers) at this event has proved to be excellent! The dates are not as important to us as all of our guys look forward to it. If we qualify @ Winter Worlds it just makes planning easier! Do a lot of the teams out there change that much thru a season? here in New England there are not many players to choose from @ a given age/ level, so we play together for extended time periods. Wondering about other areas?

Discussion: Pitching

umpire was not looking. he was putting a ball away when the pitch was made. By the time he realised what was going on, the play was nearly over!

Discussion: Pitching

what would you call this? batter in box, pitch thrown- legally by definition, batter hits ball, everybody does what they should( runners, fielders), resulting in 3 run triple. As all this transpired, the ump starts hollering "no pitch." he sends all back to where they started. Then warns pitcher that he will be thrown out of the game if he does this again! THIS HAPPENED IN "IF GAME @ Vegas. Curt Snow, Hanningtons 60 AAA.

Discussion: Play at the plate

the play occured right at the commitment line. the runner crossed the line with the thirdbaseman chasing him to tag him out, at which time the runner fell back towards fielder with the ball, falling to the third base side of the line. Umpire discussion was that the runner would have been out ( for returning over the line) IF the fielder was not in the way, which caused the runner to fall to the ground.
it apperared that the runner did this intentionaly, as he immediately began to complain.

Discussion: Play at the plate

we had a similar type play. In a rundown (pickle) the runner stopped before the commitment line and attempted to return to third. resulting throw had him trapped & third baseman ran him to the line, where the runner crossed & then reversed direction, running into the player with the ball. this resulted in the run scoring because of interference by the third baseman, even though the runner caused the collision! This occurred right at the commitment line. Umpires judgement was that runner was attempting to reverse & would have been out if third baseman hadn't made contact. maybe we need to address this situation, as this play looked intentional.

Discussion: One base or two?

what award does batter/runner get if the throw ( from left field) is intended to get runner @ first, but goes out of play past first base man. Throw not in time but close, or might have gotten the out if caught?
