Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Triple Play or Not? - Help with call

If I was umpiring in that situation I have 2 outs (as described) but the play would not have been over after the throw home and the catcher subsequently rolling the ball to the ump. Since your team went into the dugout thinking you had three outs the runners on 2nd and 3rd could have scored.
If the ump didnt see the runner on third cross the commit line before retreating back to third he cannot call him out.

Discussion: Scoring of Runs - Question concerning interpretation of Section 5.7

It makes no sense that a runner from second be credited with scoring a run when the third out was made by the runner at third.

Discussion: Sun rule

Maybe it's a different rule but the sun rule I'm familiar with is one where the sun is directly in the fielders, notably the pitcher, eyes.

Discussion: Why so many shaved senior bats

AFAIC, anyone who gets caught using a shaved senior bat during play that person ought to be banned from senior ball FOR LIFE.

DieselDan by baiting the fielder to tag you that was quite the heads up play you made!!

Totally understand your point Mango. Maybe this has been tried or considered before but one thing I've thought of is instead of the safety bag being connected to first base have the safety bag about 4 or 5 feet over. It would be similar how the scoring plate at home is located. On a infield play at first the runner has to veer off to the safety bag. Whatcha think?

Mango, the way you word it in your scenario I have the runner safe.
Congrats on winning Vegas!

I believe the intent of the rule is to make sure there is no obstacle in the path for the runner to cross the line or touch the scoring plate.

Chuck the progress your making is outstanding. Pretty soon you'll be doing triple axles!! :)
Keep up the good work and I hope to learn your playing next season with little or no limitations or pain.
Happy Thanksgiving

Hurdler in your scenario the umpire calls the runner safe. But if the first baseman get the ball and either tags the batter-runner (while he's off the base) or touches the white part of the base before the batter-runner acquires it that batter-runner is out.

Discussion: Some justice served.

I remember sampling the bat in Vegas a few years ago. It was awesome! I committed to be a rep for my area and kept waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for sample bats to arrive but they never came. I was given assurances that I would be receiving them and that the company expected to make a huge splash for senior bats. Finally I gave up. I never invested so no money lost on my end.
Then when I found out the real story it was shocking but it made sense as to why I never received bats. I agree 100% with what Webbie stated.

Unless a sub is available replace an ejected player it's an out each time that spot comes up.

Discussion: Is it a catch?

Sounds like a legal catch but I'd have to see the play to make a definitive ruling.

Discussion: rule clarification II

BJ that would be the conventional wisdom. However, it does need to be specified in the Ssusa rule book. I can visualize a scenario like this happening and a huge argument resulting, you know how some of them senior players love to do that 😀
It is specified in high school baseball--at least where I'm at. N

Discussion: rule clarification II

After checking with the on-line SSUSA rule book three things are for certain in the scenario I put up. The batter who was supposed to be at bat is out. The runner on third goes back to third. The batter-runner is safe at first. What is not specified is if the force at third and the force at second are outs or not. This is something SSUSA needs to add to the rule book.

Kind of an easy one but here it goes:
A4 is on third, A3 is on second and A2 is on first. Based loaded, no outs. A1 hits a ground ball to third. Third baseman steps on third for force, throws to second for force, throw to first, batter runner (A1) beats it out--safe. Runner A4 scores. Now there are two outs and 1 run scored.Before the next batter comes up the defensive team manager goes to the umpire and claims that A1 batted out of order. They check the scorebook and its determined A1 did bat out of order.
What is the correct penalty?

Discussion: Speed up rules

Taking my player cap off and putting my umpire cap on, I can speed up the game by calling mostly strikes and outs!! :)

Yes when there are three outs or 5 runs scored the bases would clear and the next half inning starts. Thanks for specifying

Discussion: Speed up rules

Oz is right, a 3-2 count does not speed up the game much, if at all for the reasons he specified. In USSSA we have what we call the hurry up rule. Between innings pitcher gets one warm up pitch and it's right back to the pitcher--no"coming down". Then it's batter up. Also on any out there is no throwing it around the infield, it's right back to the pitcher.
This works in men's ball but in senior ball I cant be sure. Far too many senior players walk slowly in and out between innings.
Interesting about batting two innings at a time, I presume that to be 6 outs or 10 runs, correct?
