Discussion: Infield fly rule

Yes Nancy,I understand you . But , I want to go back (way back) to when I was in my 20's . Of course the rule was used then too . Mainly , I always thought , it was called if an infielder intentionally dropped a routine infield pop-up (runners on 1st & 2nd , less than 2 outs if catchable),thus TRICKING the base runners as to not "tag up" & getting an easy double play .

Discussion: Infield fly rule

In the next game,following my league game last Monday night , I witness a horrendous call by the Ump involving the " Much Abused Infield Fly Rule ". Yes ," runners on 1st & 2nd , les than 2 outs ". Batter pops up about 5' fair , down the 1st base line . It was about 10'shy of the base . Well , the 1st baseman was back at the edge of the grass (he didn't move ) ( the pitcher is on the mound,he didn't move ,most of the time they don't) & (the catcher stands behind home plate). Umpire yells "Infield fly , batters out!".....This is not the 1st time that I have ever seen Umps use this rule incorrectly . I saw an Ump once call it on a "Texas Leaguer " out in shallow right field . Who else has seen similar situations ?
