Discussion: Rule Question

Ground ball to third base, the throw to first pulls first baseman into runner's path. Runner pulls up short of first as to
not run into 1st baseman. Any obligation of 1st baseman to give runner path to bag?

Discussion: Where is the timing play rule?

Bases loaded. one out. Batter hits a fly to center that's caught. Runner on 2nd takes off as soon as the ball is hit. The runner of 3rd scores after the catch is made. After the runner scores, the ball is thrown to 2nd to appeal the runner not tagging. A double play is called. Where is the rule that says the run from third counts? Thanks.

Discussion: pitching screen placement

We have been using a pitching screen in our local league many years. We have a near miss every year on the pitcher who did not fully step behind the screen and the line shot missed his head by 6 inches. One of our discussed remedies is to move the screen so the pitcher must pitch over the screen so they are behind the screen every pitch. For the local leagues that pitch over the screen, how do you word your rule? Thanks.

Discussion: defender touching first base orange bag first

I have read & reread the rule. If the defender touches the orange bag first, then drags his foot across the white bag, is the runner safe? There is no runner interference.

Discussion: what's the ruling on ball over the foul line

Batter hits ball down 3rd base line. Ball stops in foul territory with about half inch of the ball sphere over the clearly marked foul line. The ball does not appear to be touching the foul line, but about one half inch of the ball is over the foul line. Fair or foul?

Discussion: What's the call on a pitch

We have a player in our local league saying the plate umpire is calling a strike when a pitch hits the ground first, then hits the plate on the bounce up. Is this a correct call and simply a perfect pitch at which a batter should/could never swing?

Just to clarify, there was one ump at home plate.

Discussion: How would you rule the call

Local Senior League. Runner on first. Batter hits a fly to left, fielder appears to make a shoestring catch. Umpire signals a catch. Left fielder throws the ball to second to force runner and says I did not catch the ball. The first base runner retreated back to first thinking the ball was caught. How would you rule?

Discussion: Infield Fly Rule

In our Rec game last week the umpire called infield fly. He then reversed his call when the ball did not go as high as he thought. How do you handle a reversed infield fly call?

Discussion: merging stronger players with weaker players at local level

Would like to hear ideas on how your local senior rec games handle setting up teams with the strong big hitter travel guys & the weaker guys who love playing the game.
Point being what happens when the big hitter lines it into the infield & the infielder is one of the weaker players? We have some big hitters not wanting to play because they don't want to injure a weaker infielder. Thanks for input..

Discussion: foul tip question

In our senior league we have modified the foul tip rule to read that any foul tip that goes directly to the catchers glove is an out. We have an umpire saying there was a rule one time stating that if a foul tip was not cleanly caught, it was not an out.
ie: if the ball popped out of the catcher's glove, but he caught it before it hit the ground, it would not be an out. Did such a rule ever exist?

Discussion: 75+ roster question

SPA rule allows : Players on Men’s 75+ Major Plus, Major, and AAA rosters must be from their specific area of the country based upon being East or West of the Mississippi
River, and may select one player without geographic restriction
Does SSUSA allow one player without geographic restriction?

Discussion: Infield fly interpretation

So in the umpires judgement that with the sun/wind condition the ball may not be caught with reasonable effort, the infield fly rule not being called would be correct?

Discussion: Infield fly interpretation

If field conditions are such that wind & sun are affecting pop ups to the left side,
is a pop up in the infield to the left side still automatic infield fly rule?
We had that in the game today & umpire did not call infield fly because of the wind & sun & shortstop did not catch the ball.

Runners on first and second. Batter hits ball up the middle & it glances off pitchers chin guard into the runner as he left 2nd base. We called dead ball & hit runner out.
Cannot find ruling.
