Discussion: Kicking the ball to a teammate legal?

A little deviation of the play. Pitcher catches a hard hit liner that lodges in their webbing and can't get it out. Can the pitcher throw the glove to the base with the ball still lodged in the webbing to record an out.

I for one know it is hard to get the rules section to open on you phones. If you're fortunate enough to get it to work. Load it on a file to your phone. You have to work with it

STAY SAFE EVERYONE!!!!

Discussion: Batter pops up, doesn't run; defense lets ball drop to get a double play. Legal?

Instead of using the words drops the ball, usin guided the ball to ground would be more prudent.

Batter doesn't run, that's on them.

Discussion: Outfielder runs thru centerfield fence gap and catches home run ball; home run or out?

Jgoff5113,

Your situation would be what it be called catch and carry. That means you caught the ball within the playing grounds, but carried the ball into dead ball territory.
All runners advance one base after legally tagging of course. Subject to appeal.

This was actually a play years back in a MiLB years back, and that was the rule the way they enforced it. CF ran right through the wooden fence though.

Maybe one of these days I'll tell the sto of why a I have a light standard named for me

Discussion: Passing a preceding runner

Not an appeal play. Time play. Runner would have had to pass the proceeding runner prior to run scoring to nullify the run.

Runner must have completely passed the proceeding runner to be declared out.

Batter isn't credited with a single, but a fielder's choice and an RBI.

Captain Kirk,

I would advise to not rush into anything. There have been a lot of misleading numbers, and misinformation being put out on social media.

The numbers are spiking, and the curve is un-flattening in Texas.

Take care.

DBax,

Same in Texas. They talk about the percentage rate of recovery. They don't talk about the permanent damage done to the respiratory system though

Discussion: DO RUNNERS RETURN

As explained to me by Dear Moderator, Rule 8.3 is worded so that a B/R cannot enter the dugout, thus removing the force and not allowing a team a chance at a DP. Therefore runners must return to their TOP base.

You call outs in the order they're made. If you get the out at 2nd before, then the B/R is out, and no runs score with 1 out. Since they already have a rule pertaining to abandonment. It's ridiculous to me because with 1 out and a R3, batter hits a deep ball to the outfield which isn't caught, the batter, doesn't have to touch 1B as the for the run to legally score. If the batter goes directly to the dugout, R3 returns to their base with two out.

Discussion: You make the call

Stick,

Softball rulebooks are mostly vague with very little to no interpretation. I took this from the MLB set of rules.

2019 MLB Rule 5.08 Comment:
APPROVED RULING: No run shall score during a play in which the third out is made by the batter-runner before he touches first base. Example: One out, Jones on second, Smith on first. The batter, Brown, hits safely. Jones scores. Smith is out on the throw to the plate. Two outs. But Brown missed first base. The ball is thrown to first, an appeal is made, and Brown is out. Three outs. Since Jones crossed the plate during a play in which the third out was made by the batter-runner before he touched first base, Jones’ run does not count.

Doubtful you would be wrong using this. What your OP is the same as 6-4-3 DP with a proper appeal. My first post, I was probably thinking the runner missed 2B.

Same scenario with two outs, the defense can appeal for what is called an advantageous 4th out thus disallowing the run to score.

I'm going to change my first answer. No run may score if the B/R makes the last out of an inning before reaching 1B. DUH!!!!

Two outs. Run doesn't score.

First scenario there was no force with one out.

Second scenario, B/R must legally obtain 1B with 2 outs. It is called an advantageous 4th out.

Food for thought. Georgia just confined more than 1,000 positive COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours. They very recently opened things up.

Sorry guys.It would be nice to have a rules discussion without his ridiculous comments for once. I quit one forum because I was tired of his childlike trolling. Worse there were more Smitties just like him. He comes in small doses here thank goodness.

Discussion: Running lane violation

Dan,

It would be nice that the field was lined properly since rubbing out the lines of the batter's box results in an automatic ejection. From what I've gathered I see that if this call is ever made, some TD or UIC is called down to a field in the middle of a huge tournament, will it ever be brought up. What's the point of having a rule if they haven't got anyone that knows how to even remotely enforce it.

Face it. When it comes to umpiring, they generally take what they can get to do these games. BJ the DA couldn't, even if he tried, answer the two simple questions I posed to him. But, according to his gal pal, he is da' bomb though. What an endorsement. LMAO

Hopefully, this virus thing will phase itself out soon and people can get back to some sort of a normal life if that's ever possible.

Stay safe and stay home.

Discussion: Running lane violation

I knew exactly what you were going to say...………..and you did.

I asked for verification. Never did I state that anything was chiseled in stone. The B/R is either in the lane or not in the lane. There is no give and take. There is no theory involved. (WHERE DOES IT STATE SOME PART OF THE FOOT CAN BE OUTSIDE THE LINE) Did these five words escape you? RUNS OUTSIDE THE RUNNING LANE.

So can/will you tell us what constitutes being IN and not OUTSIDE the running lane? Better yet, tell us what you deem as a quality throw or if one is required. If challenged by either the offense or defense are you going to shrug your shoulders and say, "I dunno."?

These are very simple to answer questions. Tag. You're it.
