What's the Ruling?
Whats the Ruling?
Player A, a starter is subbed for by player B.
Player B is then subbed for by player C.

In the last inning player A re-enters (for player C) and is playing defensively in the outfield. Now it is my understanding that this cant be done (a starter can only re-enter for the sub who went in for him).

The opposing team brought it to the umpires attention after 2 outs had already been recorded. Whats the ruling/penalty?

as long as player A goes back in the game in the same spot in the lineup he was subbed in for then it makes no differance how many were subbed in before he re-entered.

This was an ASA tournament and we were told a starter may only re-enter for the player who substituted for him. Is the rule different for ASA?

Lp is right. NSA also notes that player (A)original player and his/her substitute (B) cannot be in the game at the same time
