Answers to Poll Rule Questions

June 17, 2015

Question #3: When a runner overruns 1st base and turns to her left she is automatically out if she is tagged.
Answer: FALSE, A runner is not out simply for turning to her left.  The thing to ask yourself is, "Did the runner make an attempt to go to 2nd base and change her mind?"  If the answer is yes, then you have an out.  If the answer is no, then you have nothing.

 

Question #2: When the wrong batter gets in the batter's box and takes a pitch she is automatically out if the other coach finds the mistake.
Answer:  FALSE,  When the wrong batter is found in the batter's box (no matter who discovers it) the correct batter is simply put at the plate and resumes with the pitch count.  The wrong batter would only be out if she actually gets on base and it is discovered by the defensive team prior to a pitch being thrown to the next batter.

 

Question #1: When a pitch hits the dirt and then hits the batter it is NOT considered a hit by pitch because the ball is dead when it hits the ground.
Answer:  For those who answered true to this question please ask yourself this.  If the pitch hits the dirt and misses the batter can the runners on base steal? Of course the answer is YES.  So, when does the ball become dead? The ball becomes dead when it hits the batter and not when it hits the dirt.  A batter who is hit with a pitch that hits the dirt first will be awarded 1st base. So, the answer to the question is FALSE.


 

 

RULES POLLS

  Look to your right!!  Each week I will put a rules question up for everyone to vote on.  Some will be basic rules and some will be a bit more difficult.  If you have a question you would like to have listed please email it to me.  This is a fun way for us to learn together.


 

RULES QUESTIONS

June 15, 2015

AS THE SEASON PROGRESSES AND QUESTIONS COME IN I WILL POST THEM HERE.

Q.  Innings 1-4 have a five run limit and inning 5 is open.  If the umpire declares inning 3 or 4 the last inning due to time is that inning open or does the run limit stay in place?
A.  Inning 5 OR the last inning declared will be open.  Each game will have one open inning in 12U/14U.

Q.  Are pitchers required to wear a defensive mask?
A.  By league rule they are not required.  However, each community or team can make their own requirement.

Q.  10U/12U Tier II: With a runner on 3rd base can the runner run home if the pitcher drops the ball while in the circle after the catcher throws it back to her?
A.  In these two levels we have a rule that says "no stealing home".  The only way a runner can advance home is on a hit or if she is forced on a bases loaded walk (we do not have walks in 10U).
