Discussion: Question

bruiser - kinda confused by your description of play. you said bases loaded no one out so when umpire called infield fly you have 1 out. Runner going home is safe so you asked if runner going home was the 3rd out which isn't an out, where did the 2nd out come from?

BH44 - Ump sorta gave correct answer. There is always a batters box regardless if it's still visible or not. It becomes judgement of the umpire if batter is out of box or not if lines are no longer visible.

Discussion: NEW Dudley Lift one piece 2020

Alan - Question is are the production bats that the general public purchase not going to crack early? The demo HotW's that were out weren't cracking like the retail product did. Did Dudley ever say what the issue was I haven't heard anything. I personally wouldn't invest in any HotW product right now until they have been sold over a period of time with good results on performance and durability.

Wayne - Slow down take a deep breath read the situation. Runner on 2nd legally tagged up realized runner on 3rd didn't and went back to 2nd he has to be tagged by fielder for a legal out. What part of scenario don't you get as usual!

Miss worded a little out could have still been made if runner at 2nd was tagged.Run would have still counted if 3rd base runner scored before tag was made.

Never a force play on a fly ball tag up. In your scenario runner would have had to be tagged for an official out to be made. This is a timing play not a force out play. Only way out should have been recorded is if fielder tagged runner at 2nd before runner on third scored. How did your protest turn out?

STL0 - To answer your question if it wasn't already. I missed the BJ vs Dave exchange. You are correct no penalty for retreating back to 1st to delay or avoid tag. Umpire got this one wrong.

Discussion: MIKEN ULTRA 2 WITH ASA2000 / ISF HAS A "W" MELTED IN THE END CAP

Just my opinion but the bat is definitely stronger and will last way longer than the current Ultra II. I had and OG Ultra II when they 1st came out around 2003. Bat lasted a couple years hitting .47 core softballs had over 2000 swings on it. 1st Ultra II I got when I turned 50 playing senior ball got around 200 swings out of it. Now most Miken reps will tell you it is the same composite I call BS. Anyway that is my opinion.

grayhitter59 - This is a timing play if runner scored before appeal is made or ball is thrown to 2nd for live ball appeal run counts. Not a force out!!!

Discussion: Dudley HotW crack

Dusty-3 Actually all the bats being sent out for replacement are still breaking. This includes the ser. #s you listed as well. Dudley hasn't fixed the problem they are just sending out the inventory they have. Crickets from Dudley on what the problem is and what they are doing to correct the problem.

Question is what did the ump call. I am assuming he called it correctly and home team won game.

Discussion: Rules Question

B.J. is correct on both situations. The 2nd situation is where a lot of players get confused saying runner has to peel off or get out of the way of the throw. That is not the case if runner is in base path moving toward base and ball is thrown into him there is no interference. To add this is as long as runner is not doing anything out of the ordinary jumping, throwing hands etc. in front of ball.

Discussion: foul ball on no fouls left

Dave - So would a base runner who left the bag on 1st touch on a ball caught in foul grounds be out on appeal for leaving bag early. The answer is no!!

Discussion: Dudley HotW 14 replacement bat

Guys it's not that hard to figure out. None of the serial #s matter they are all breaking regardless of the ser. #. Dudley doesn't have any new bats out yet I don't think they know what the problem is. They are going to keep sending out the same batch of replacements until they run out.
