Discussion: missed Infield fly call

Let the play stand as called. The offense and defense both did what they were supposed to do. You would really have a mess on your hands if both runners advanced.

You would have to rule the batter out and I guarantee you would have an argument on your hands. If you're working with two umpires, the field umpire should point the ball in the air and the plate umpire determine the IFF being enacted. Be vocal in your call. Removes confusion.

Learn from your mistake and move on.

Discussion: Corona Virus (COVID-19) Part II

I don't understand why some people are so intent to possibly infect themselves or others to play softball. There were over 300 reported deaths alone from the virus in Italy yesterday. THIS NO REGULAR STRAIN OF THE FLU!!!!!

For my money, I would try the Bouton safety glasses at around ten bucks a pair. They have different lens colors and you can wear them anywhere.

They will be in the sunburst series.

The glasses were called Prizm Saffire. They are back up to $136.00 with the discount. They do have the same frame with different lenses though.

There are some safety glasses made by Bouton (?) that are the same style as the Oakley. Inexpensive and work well. I was always tough on sunglasses so I used these.

My regular glasses have an Oakley frame. Straight earpieces is what I like.

Good luck.

DD, do you mean glasses when using a cutting torch and not a welder. They're okay for some activities, but I prefer the sport glasses with the frame that doesn't wrap behind the ear.

Discussion: Was this the correct Call?

I read the rule and as usual it is vague with no interpretation. I asked you the questions to see if you might be able to answer one. The B/R is NOT required to use the running lane as they advance on a grounder to F5. All the have to do is run to orange bag. Interference for being outside the lane is not relevant to this situation.

It is obvious now you don't know what the running lane is for and what consists a running lane violation. I could explain things to you, but it would be a huge waste of time.

Dave, he MIGHT COULD have Conseco out if his huge head is was fair territory.

Oakley has some good ones on sale for $76.00 right now. That is about $100.00 off the regular price.

Discussion: Was this the correct Call?

Why does the B/R have to be in the running lane on a normal groundball to F5?

Since it is not against any written rule, what would having the bat over fair territory be different than in foul territory since it is part of the runner?

Time for somebody to go apetit.

Discussion: Bats and cleats

I usually buy last year's turf shoes. Generally about half off. I will buy a new pair as a lot of shoes can break down on the inside and don't really support the bottom of the feet.

As hard as the fields get, shoes don't really get that much traction. I bought a custom pair of Adidas rubber cleats as they are very comfortable and waterproof.

It would help a lot if they would water down the fields.

Question. Aren't the trail shoes much more expensive?

The 14" is probably a balanced. However, I don't think it is 14". However, I think 13" is most likely the barrel size.

Either work just fine for me. You can walk around outside the field better with turf shoes.

Big Irv,

I seriously doubt you will find anything as the season has started everywhere. It will probably rain anyway. If I find out anything I'll let you know.

Let me know if your schedule changes. Something might come up.

Discussion: CR from the back stop.

We have them run from the home plate area in day ball and from the screen in my night league. They should all run from the screen since in day ball they are simply replacing a slower runner with a faster runner. Not really in the spirit of the rule.

Since when were towering fly balls exempt from the rule?

I understand that, Tim. That's why I used the term guided the ball to the ground. However, you return runners from their positions on the bases when the play is made dead just as you do the awarding of bases. Not TOP. Also just letting the ball drop to the ground without touching leaves the ball live.
