Rule Questions

June 12, 2014

As the season goes on I will add to this.  These are questions I have gotten so far this season.  I will list the questions and answer as they come in.

Q: 12U Tier II: Bases loaded with 2 outs.  Can the batter advance to 1st base on a dropped third strike?  Isn''t the runner from 3rd then stealing home?
A: The dropped third strike IS in effect.  The runner from 3rd is attempting to advance to home and is being forced by the runners behind her because of the ball being in play the same as if it were hit into play.
 

Q: I see that there is a 15 run rule in 3 innings.  Is there a 10 run rule in 4?
A: No.  Only 15 in 3 simply because we only play 5 innings.

Q: 12U Tier II: Runner on 2nd only.  Can the runner from 2nd steal 3rd on a walk to the batter?
A: Yes, baserunners may steal one base per pitch with the exception of home.

Q: Do teams take turns being home and away for double headers?
A: No.  The home team is the home team.

Q: Can a batter advance to 1st base on a dropped 3rd strike with 1st base occupied?
A: Only if there are two outs.  If 1st base is occupied with less than 2 outs she may not advance.

Q: Does a batter need to make an attempt to get out of the way of a pitch that may hit her?
A: Yes, however, that attempt is in the judgement of the umpire.  Also, if the pitch came in and the batter "froze" she is awarded 1st.
