Discussion: 2012 Home Run Rule Clarification

Maj + player, I agree that the explanation by SSUSA is not what the rule says. At the annual UIC clinic this year this rule was discussed at great length. It was agreed that the wording was not sufficient and we would have problems. I had this ducussion at Shadow Rock on the weekend with a couple of teams, and a few umpires when this situation came up. The way the rule is written, a team MAY go 1 up in the bottom of the open inning as long as it does not win the game. Which by the way, we decided was un-fair to the visiting team. I have asked the SSUSA UIC to review the wording in this rule.

Thanks Joe for the compliments and again, I did not see any attempt to deceive. They are 2 very good pitchers and when Donny did quick pitch I called it. I would much rather umpire those games than 30-3 games anyday. Hope to see you soon.

Just to add a comment here. I was the plate umpire in 3 of your games as well as the champ. and IF game you were talking about. I know you were questioning my calling of supposed "illegal" pitches in the "IF" game from the stands but in my judgement the pitcher was legal by SSUSA rules. Both Dave and Ray asked me to watch BOTH pitchers because of problems occuring the day before. They are both very good pitchers and we had two great games. Dave and Fran watched both games as you know. Too bad it will be remembered on here differently.
