Discussion: Carry Bat

yes as in a previous discussion bat can be carried but if the bat is hit by a throw from the defense as it is being carried by that batter runner it thus interfered with a play being made on that runner...making the runner out on interference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Strike mats

HEY DOC22!!!!!JUST GO TO A SPORTING GOODS STORE AND BUY A SMALL WORKOUT MAT....AND CUT IT TO THE CORRECT MAT SIZE.....19" BY 34/1/2"....WHICH WORK JUST FINE...IF THE MAT IS AT LEAST 1/4" THICK IT WORKS REALLY GOOD AS WHEN THE BALL HITS THE VERY EDGE OF THE MAT IT GOES SIDE WAYS SHOWING THE UMPIRE THAT IT HIT THE MAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Excessive Speed Pitch

This has been a big bugaboo to me as i pitch!!! and i have too many umps calling pitches flat on me when i throw my pitches at almost the same speed all the time!!! i contest that it is physically impossible to throw a pitch the fifty feet between the pitchers rubber and the mat at a slow pace without reaching the six foot level!!!! As i normally pitch close to the 12 ft level and i suddenly throw one lower at the six feet level they(umps) can't handle that lower look even though it hits the mat!!!! and they call it illegal or flat !!!! when it isn't!!! Just my two cents on the subject!!!

Discussion: CHOPPED / TOMAHAWKED BALL

Hey guys the chop swing was used all the time in the late 70's and early 80's...when the bases were just 60/65 ft...the really fast left handed batters would chop down on the ball toward third...and it was an easy hit for them until ASA WROTE THE CHOPPING RULE and it has hardly been used since...especially since the new base is 70ft away!!!!! fyi

Discussion: Another what's the correct call

ITS OBSTRUCTION NOT INTERFERENCE BALLS INPLAY THEN WHAT BJ SAID WOULD STAND!!! RUNNER CLOSEST IS THIRD OUT IF SCORED AFTER OUT AT SECOND!!! RUN WOULD COUNT IF SCORED BEFORE THE OUT AT SECOND!!! TIMING PLAY....

Discussion: Age

hey guys just a thought here!! one of our competitors.....SPA ....allows three 69 yearolds to play in their 70 + tourneys. i know so what!!!! Well, as we are getting older by the minute(i play 70's) it is getting harder and harder to get enough players to attend some our better tournaments.Some being a plane ride away instead of just driving to THEM!!!! IS THERE A CHANCE WE COULD GET THIS FOR THE 70 TEAMS AS WE HAVE IT FOR THE 75+ TEAMS.....IT WOULD MEAN MORE TEAMS TO PLAY WHEN WE TRAVEL AWAY!!! JUST A THOUGHT!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Purpose for allowing base runners to "run thru" or "over run" bases?

OUR 65+ AND 55+ LEAGUES HERE IN Austin use the run thru rule and force out at second and third base...must retouch base run thru to advance on same play....runners are responsible to avoid contact with the fielder on all plays or called out!!! works great and we have two umpires from teams that are playing the next game....we as players live with it Experienced as an umpire or not...we also have a group of directors(positions held for 1-2 years) that get together at the beginning of the year to set up the teams so that the league is fairly competitive thru-out the year...we have four separate schedules so the winners of each Playoff at the end of the year...cost is $90 for approx 70-80 games for each team for the year!!! PRETTY COOL AND FUN EVEN FOR US TOURNEY GUYS!!!!

Discussion: Was The ump

especially using the bats that we do!!! a crushed line drive is not necessarily considered a ball that can be caught with easy effort!!! therefore (in the umpires judgement) MAY OR MAY NOT BE CALLED AN INFIELD FLY!!!!!!!!! CAUGHT OR NOT!!

Discussion: Bad experience for a Class Tournament - Worlds

Also the situation we are discussing shud have been an out...as a rule is a rule and this one is for safety even if it makes no sense in this scenario...just my two cents!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Bad experience for a Class Tournament - Worlds

sorry bill b but in your last scenario the run would score anyway...due to the fact the run scored before the last out was made....its called a timing play....the appeal occured after the run scored...so it counts

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: effect of interference call by umpire

if the player interferes in the umpires judgement with the fielder on a double play and in his judgement a double play would have been made if no interference had been made it is a double play. runner going to second is out and the closest runner to home is also out.no throw needs to have been made!!!!
