Discussion: Rules question. Happened at Huntsman

I wouldn't call stick8's situation hypothetical. It happens more often than a blue moon. Something hypothetical are what us baseball umpires refer to as "third world plays".

There are situations where you do have to rule on something that is not in the rulebook.

Take for example when Randy Johnson hit the bird with a pitch. Not covered in the rules.

Here is hypothetical question for you. Team A calls timeout to send in a courtesy runner. Runner who is replaced is on first, but courtesy runner goes to second by mistake. After the hitter knocks in the run, you are informed by Team B that the courtesy runner positioned himself on the wrong base.

What's the call?

A good rule of thumb............players just can't disappear. I don't know the rule for softball, and how interference by the ondeck hitter is penalized, but in baseball, I would kill the play, and return runners to last legally acquired base.

Discussion: Layla Bryan

I think I know who she is now.........just don't know for sure though. I seem to recall talking to a lady from down around Goldthwaite way. Sorry to hear of Ms. Bryan passing.

Forgot to add. The less you say on the field, the less you have to backup later. Are you paying attention, neck10?

Dress professionally, act professionally, and hustle at all times. (I know it can be hard when you've been out there all day, and it's hot)

Learn from mistakes. Remember experience is often a mistake you won't make twice. Read the rulebook. Don't bring a rulebook onto the field with you though. Be assertive on the close calls. Be verbal so all can hear on the field. (Don't yell). Shut down all the unnecessary bullshit. Keep the game moving. Get them in, and out as quick as possible. There is more, but let us not overload a greenhorn.

I'm just giving my input based on my experiences from umping HS baseball. Hope this might help someone.

Discussion: How did SSUSA decide which Division had teams shorted to four gg?

When more teams start staying home from big nationals, it will affect the pocketbook. They lose, you save. If Ted Cruz can shut down the government........well you get my drift.

Discussion: Sad state of affirs at Huntsman.

HJ,

I didn't say rolling a bat wasn't illegal. Altering a bat is illegal. I just don't believe it really adds that much of an advantage.

Discussion: Rules question. Happened at Huntsman

Runners aren't forced to run on caught a fly ball. This is a timing play, and run scores. In other words, the run doesn't count only if the out was made on the runner before the run scored.

If this is a missed base, a force would have still remained in effect.

I wouldn't call rolling that big of an advantage. People that do it just want their bat broken in from what I've seen.

The only minor advantage I see is that it will or possibly make the sweet part bigger.

Shaved bats are a different story. They can add about 50 feet to an average hitter.

I'm just relaying info from conversations.

Discussion: Glove care

I used to get Lexol, but it's only available on the Internet for me now. Can't find it locally at leather stores. I just buy the top brand conditioner they have.

Discussion: Pitchers Mask or Helmet Mask Combo

Storing hard plastic in hot cars, or cold garages in the winter weakens it. It will contract or expand, and make the mask brittle. Store at room temperature as much as possible.

Metals will do the same thing only not on such a grand scale.

I never try to leave my bats in cold weather for sure, or in the extreme heat of a car.

YMMV.

Hope everybody had/has a great season.

Toodles,

Discussion: want to play smart ball

Come out to Mike Lewis park in Grand Prairie Monday night. I'm pretty sure my team, Freemans could use another player. We're short most the time. Doubleheaders and games are all 6:30 & 7:30 starts

email me: wlangley88@msn.com for any questions you might have.

We are pretty laid back as a league, but there are some good teams, and everyone gets along great. You would enjoy it.

Discussion: Infielder/Outfielder in search of team in East Texas

There was a tourney team from the Tyler area a few seasons ago. They might still have a league. big dog (Bobby Butler) can most likely hook you up out that way........big dog is usually on the general and miscellaneous section.

You're welcome.

I bought a black Ultra II about two weeks ago. That bat is hotter than the one I had had for quite a while. Wonder if this thing will get any hotter as time goes by, and breaks itself in.?
