I won't argue that the ump will make the safe call
(I don't agree, but I am not 100% sure), but your statement about the appeal is wrong.
There is no way you have time to appeal the play BEFORE the runners gets back to 1st base. The appeal has to be made BEFORE the next pitch.
Hopefully SSUSA will settle this.

Bruce, I am just a coach that likes to know the rules.
It comes in handy many times during the year.
And I umpired for 15 years.lol

Hurdler.. The umpire will not make any call (safe or out)
If the defensive person tags the bag, it will be a protest call before the next pitch.
If the 1st baseman never touches the bag, when the batter/runner goes back and touches the bag, the umpire will call him safe.
Hope this helps
coop3636
As far as I know, the avoiding collision has no bearing on not touching the base, but I may be mistaken on this.

This question needs more information to be answered correctly.
If it is just a regular play on a batted ball, the runner will be safe.
If the 1st baseman is trying to avoid a collision, then the batter is out
If it is a play from an outfielder trying for a double play, the runner is safe.
hope this helps, and I hope my answers are correct
I am sure if they are not, I will be corrected.

I disagree. You have many issues, just scheduling a tournament is not one of them.
IE: batting with a PINK bat..lol

Topic: Product review
Discussion: TCB or simliar ball

We use them before every game
I have had mine all season.
They still seem to be in good shape
I bought them on Amazon
The only bad thing is that you can't really practice going backside (and they make your bag heavy to carry around..lol)
You have to take a full swing to get anything out of them.
Its a great way to warm up in a small area and doesn't take much time since the balls stay close.
As always, just my opinion.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Courtesy runner replacement on a base.

I will concede if you say so, but...
As you wrote, rule 8.5(3) says nothing about making a lineup change (sub) and changing that person for the courtesy runner. It only says " " a courtesy runner may not be replaced by another courtesy runner....
Maybe the wording needs to be changed in the next rules meeting.
coop3636
That was my argument and why the ump agreed with me.
I will concede the rule thou, just clarify it in the next book (use the same wording as the tie breaker rule and it will be totally clear.

Discussion: Courtesy runner replacement on a base.

I did this in Vegas this year
The UIC said it was legal.
You cannot have a courtesy runner run for another courtesy runner, but can change the runner out if you make a substitution for the original batter. (the one who was suppose to be on the base in the first place)
This is what I did. The other coach argued and the UIC came over and made the ruling in our favor.
Hope this helps

Maybe SSUSA will verify.

Discussion: Umpire Hit by a Batted Ball

JL..it hit the pitchers glove so it is a live ball

Dave
Wrong again.. (to rispls question)
If it hits the umpire (as long as the ball has passed the infielders)and goes over the fence, its a HOMERUN.
IE..if its hits an umpire after it passes the infielders and is caught by an outfielder in the air, its an out.. right?
It is considered untouched.. right?
It is the same as going off the head of an outfielder and going over the fence (just ask Canseco)

Discussion: Ruling clarification

I still don't agree
I dead ball is a dead ball, all action stops.
And how can a HR count (toward your HR total) if it doesn't count toward your run total?
Makes no sense to me


And what I was saying earlier, I have seen a pitch being delivered and the ump calls NO PITCH, and the batter swings at it anyway.
That's the scenario I was talking about.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Ruling clarification

so if a ump calls time out and then the batter hits one over then fence, it counts towards the HR total?
This is same scenario as the dead ball.
I think SSUSA staff is wrong on this one.

ps.. I would lose my protest money on this one if that is the case.

Dave,
I know it is almost an impossible job.
And you do a great job doing it
I was just throwing out an suggestion for next year.
I just looked at the 55 major bracket.

Discussion: suggestion for SSUSA

I have a suggestion for the Vegas Tournament.
(And I know its a HUGE tourney with many different brackets of all sizes)
Have the bracket games start 2 hours after the RR games.
Last weekend in the 55 major, there were about 20-25 of the 35 teams sitting around the ball park for about 2 hours to see if they were one of the 8 teams that had to play on Friday night.
The teams should have been able to been back at their hotels resting, healing, enjoying Vegas etc.
The brackets could have been put up online after the RR games and had an hour for the teams to get back to the park.
Unless you we 2-0 and scored lots of runs, you had to be at the park because two of the middle of the road teams (where they ended up in the standings) had to play that night.
Either start the games later of just make the bottom 4-8 teams play .
This ways it lets most of the teams enjoy Vegas (or wherever) in between games.
Just my two cents worth
(and thoughts of most of the teams that had to come back to the park at 5pm and sit for an hour then go home)
