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

Perl, same thing happened to me about a month ago. I was baserunner, catcher tagged me after crossing commitment line. There was no call to I tried to run home. The catcher blocked my way to the scoring plate as he was attempting to reach home plate.
The umpire called me out. I contended that after he tagged me after crossing the commitment line the play should have been called dead.
He disagreed with me. After the game the UIC said should have been dead.
We won the game easily so no problem with us.
Back to your question, umpire is correct.
I believe SPA and SSUSA rules are the same.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.:)

Seeing this post made me think of Steve Simmons. I didn't know him well at all. In fact I only met him a couple of times. He and I were on the same 2 man team in SSUSA's home run Derby back when they had 2 persons teamS for the derby.
We ended up winning and he was surprised that he was included since he didn't hit any. I had hit enough to cover both of us.

He seemed like a great guy. Too bad he is no longer with us.

No Lefty, I'll be playing in a FHC tournament in Fl.
RDSinNEOHIO, I would think there would be indoor facilities up north where one could perfect their swing.

Discussion: Batting

Corn, my suggestion would be to find a good hitter on your team or another that likes to take bp. While hitting, ask what he thinks you could do to improve, be it for power or base hitting.
You can't expect to improve much if you don't practice.
Another suggestion, get rid of the 25oz bat. :)

I'm not an umpire but have run into this situation a few times.
I believe the infield rule states that the runners advance at their risk.
The runners remain at second and third, one out.
