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

Nancy I’ve had you and Stick as umpires in games that I’ve played. 2 of the better ones I might add. Hopefully INF rule never happens again in one of your games.
The last game I played and every game that I’ve ever seen, the area between Home Plate and the Pitcher’s mound was in the infield. However because we play Senior INF somehow doesn’t apply for a ball hit between home and the Pitchers mound????
The ball “plays itself”. INF and most other calls are called in relationship to the ball. We are not calling INF because of where the infielder is playing , if the infielder has the capability to catch the ball, if the infielders didn’t move, or if he stayed in a” Holiday Inn last night”. It’s where the BALL is hit (infield), first and second base bases occupied - less than 2 outs. “INFIELD FLY”

Major plus SS, 2nd baseman, 3rd base can all be found to play deep and on the outfield grass. So in your “what routine is” scenario there would is no INF called because the SS, 2nd baseman couldn’t get to the ball with ordinary effort because they play so deep (short left field)? You might find it fair to” judge” it that way but, that’s not the Rule.

As a Player I would much rather here from an Umpire? ” That’s the Rule” than “in my judgment”. I’ve seen many Umpires and Tourney Directors pull Rule books out of their pockets but, never have I seen one pull out a “Judgment” . Those come from a bit farther south!

Just IMO

Stick.The call or the lack thereof revolved around an inability of the players "physical challenges".An umpire can't circumvent the rule as written because a player or players don't or can't react to a fair batted ball. In the Turbo Bob case "infield fly" should be the only call.The "physical inabilites" of the player was what made the play "not ordinary".That is not in the rule book!


hypothetically: You being an umpire and I'm catching and I turn to you in an infield fly situation and say. I have a hamstring and may not be able to catch a fly ball between home plate and the mound. So "don't call infield fly I won't be able to make a play on the ball".(Or even in your judgement the thought- these guys can't make a play").C"MON MAN! lol!!!

The rule was written to protect the baserunners from jeaopardy.The lack of a call here does not do that.

UMPIRE GOT IT RIGHT!????

when first and second are occupied or bases loaded (I think) with less than two outs." Batter hits a fair infield fly ball(not a line drive) which can be caught by an infielder, pitcher or catcher. By rule Infield Fly should have been called by the umpire. No matter any "physical challenges".

If the ball fell in the infield with or without being touched infield fly rule would still apply (if called). Batter out-runners advance at their own risk.

The other side of the story is that SSUSA is still respnsible for field rentals,travel,awards,some umpires travel,etc. So to expect 100% refund for something that they had no control over (RAIN) is really a bit unrealistic. A percentage of the "break even" may be a more doable ask for.

Right now we all we have is HYPE and conversation. No ball will be better than "the ROCK". Rather than "recreating the wheel". Not sure why we just didn't change Stote for ROCK.

Discussion: 1-1 count and new ball

I will say that the wind had a lot to do with it. Lots of walks and the umpires are still allowing pitches between inning and "infeild" practice.Not to mention the time that it takes for the Pitcher to strap on all of their gear. This just to say that there are a lot more varibles to getting in seven ining than the Pitch count (1-1). Adddng to this btw is 7 runs per inning as opposed to 5.

Discussion: Still waiting for a rational answer

tugboat. This is not my fight but, As explained if you move 65 age group you would have to play Major+ or Major. No matter that you are Playing 65. Your player rating however is still 60 Major+ . If you play 60 again you will have to play Major or Plus.You could not play AAA.
You are correct in that a 65M+ rated player would be allowed to play 60AAA as one of the 3 out of rating players on a team but, you are not 65M+ rated.
Your Player rating is 60M+ (No matter your age). and the subsequent rule as Dave explained would apply.Simpler put and hypothetically speaking you could be 70 years Old and still have a 60M+ rating.It wouldn't change if you decided to play on a 70 team.You would still be rated 60M+ and be subjected to the same set of rules as applied.

Hope this helps.
