Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Is the infield fly rule based on physical ability to catch the ball?

Basically, the rule here is to protect the runners in the situation of a routine fly ball that can be allowed to drop thereby creating the easy double play. Umpire has to make the decision to call to protect the runners based on the play presented to them. Plays that require effort that is not considered routine would be allowed to play without the call, in the umpires eyes, that even if allowed to drop, etc. a easy double play could not be turned.

Once called, runner are free to do what they want. But we have all seen the player that "intentionally" lets the ball drop to try to induce the double play. Even happened the other night where ball hit fielders glove, dropped and he tried to turn 2. I call it out as soon as it hit his glove knowing what he was intending.

Hope that helps..
