Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Catch

no catch…

1.10 • CATCH
A catch is a legally caught ball that occurs when the fielder catches a batted or thrown ball with his hand(s) or glove and the resulting release of the ball must be voluntary. NOTE: It is not a catch if a fielder, after he contacts the ball, collides with another player, umpire or a fence, or falls to the ground and loses possession of the ball as a result of the collision or falling to the ground. A ball that strikes anything other than a defensive player while it is in flight, is ruled the same as if it struck the ground. An illegally caught ball occurs when a fielder catches a batted or thrown ball with anything other than his hand(s) or glove in its proper place.

Discussion: Can a player run for another one twice in one inning?

breeze.. I haven't worked a SSUSA tour. in several years but when I did we always tracked the CR's and the score even if there was a home team score book.. also it didn't matter if I was in a 2man system or working solo

if it's not being done the teams should be complaining to the tour. dir. and UIC

Discussion: What's the Call ?

8.4(7) • FOUR-BASE AWARD
Any fair ball touched by a player on either side of the fence that clears or has cleared the fence in fair territory before touching the ground will be a "four-base
award," and will not be included in the total over-the-fence home run count.
NOTE: The batter may return directly to the dugout and all other runners may return directly to the dugout. EFFECT: The concept known as “hit and sit” is
permitted.

stick.. yes BJ could be a CR in the 6th and 7th inning but once removed from the line up BJ cannot return as a sub. again later in the game

Tim, I agree with you on it not really being an issue and I can't ever recall it happening .. BUT it should be made aware to all umpires, UIC's and TD's that if it does come up in a game as of now it is a legal substitution

how about something like this??

a substitute on the roster and listed on the official lineup who has entered the game as a CR may not enter the game as a substitute to replace a runner in the same inning

DD.. that won't fix the problem he wasn't replacing a CR.. this was a player on the line up sheet as a sub who legally CR then entered the game as a sub for a starter that got a base hit

Duke, yes that is correct.. but he went in a a sub. not a CR ... show me where that is not allowed in the rules

hopefully DD will chime in where it's not allowed in the rules

grayhitter.. I agree with your thinking but no where in the rules does it state that it can't be done.. it says a CR cannot run twice in the same inning and technically he is not a CR he's a sub. and no where does it state that a sub. coming in would be classified as a runner... I also think he should be illegal BUT I need to see it in the rule book

Murray, hmmm good question...
I know of no rule that states that player A can't go in as a sub to run for player C after already being used as a CR earlier in the same inning

Discussion: Umpire Question

guppy.. I agree with the control of the ball thru the play .. BUTTT .. the catch and control of a fly ball rule is different because falling to the ground, running into a fence, umpire or another defensive player and then dropping the ball is a NO catch..

Discussion: Umpire Question

I agree with above.. if the fielder had control of the ball while touching the bag I have the runner out.. dropping the ball and nullifying an out after falling to the ground only applies to fly ball/line drive catches

Discussion: Assuming interference, other runner should be returned to previous base?

stick, yes you are correct that it's a dead ball on the INT. call .. but the OP states that the runner made contact with the SS's arm on the follow through on releasing the ball and that the ball fell short of the catcher "before" the runner passed the scoring line... so again there is a possibility of a 2nd out being called on the runner from 3rd if the umpire judges that without the contact there could have been an out at home

stick.. don't forget that the SS did throw to HP ... there is a possibility if in the judgment of the umpire the runner would have been out had there been no INT. you now would have runners on 1st and 2nd and 2 outs

jgoff.. the rule below covers your scenario and all calls are umpire judgment

8.6 • WHEN SLIDING IS OPTIONAL - AVOIDING COLLISIONS
Sliding or diving into first base or the scoring line or scoring plate is permitted only to avoid a collision with a defensive player. This is an umpire’s judgment
call and is not subject to protest or appeal. A player may slide or dive into second or third bases, or when returning to any base. A runner must make every effort to avoid colliding with opposing players while running the bases or sliding or diving. If in the umpire's judgment a runner misses a base to avoid a collision, the runner will not be called out. If in the umpire’s judgment the runner fails to avoid a collision with a defensive player involved in the play, the ball will be declared dead and that runner called out. All base runners except the batter will be returned to their previous base unless forced to advance. If in the umpire’s judgment the runner's collision with the defensive player involved in the play negates a double play, the umpire may award a second out.

T2.. you certainly don't give up.. a couple months ago with a similar scenario you disagreed with the answers that you were given on the ITB rule and you stated you were going to follow up with some of the SSUSA hierarchy... the SSUSA National Directors and nine SSUSA State & Regional UIC's.

I'm just wondering because I never heard back from you did you ever find anyone to agree with your hypothetical version of the ITB rule??

titan... below is the effect of the ITB rule...

EFFECT: If the last batter of the previous inning cannot continue to play because of injury, illness, etc., he will be declared out and the next previous batter will be the tie-breaker runner.
