Joe Girardi's line-up card has Jeter leading off and Ellsbury batting second....Ellsbury actually leads off and hits a home run... The opposing coach notifies the ump after the HR..What is the call?
You guys are so close but I the answer is......Jeter is out.. HR does not count... Ellsbury bats (again).....
Can ya show where in the rule book it states that?'Cause that's not what I saw, or interrpruted.
APPROVED RULING To illustrate various situations arising from batting out of turn, assume a firstinning batting order as follows: Abel-Baker-Charles-Daniel-Edward-Frank-George-Hooker-Irwin. PLAY (2). Baker bats and doubles. The defensive team appeals (a) immediately or (b) after a pitch to Charles. RULING: (a) Abel is called out and Baker is the proper batter; (b) Baker stays on second and Charles is the proper batter.
So Baker bats again with no one on and one out?This would be very rare to see at College level and above.I could see it happening in LL once in a while.Thanks Bully, that was a tough one.
Did youse guys watch the Brewers @ Braves last night?That was an interesting rule book game.
Pitching and Bullpen coaches were out for graduation ceremonies for the Brewers Coach goes to the mound to make a pitching change, confusion in the bullpen, no one was ready.Duke starts walking out onto the outfield playing surface, Roenicke doesn't want Duke, he wants Smith. Duke goes back to the bullpen and Smith comes out. The Braves coach comes out for clarification and they get on the headphones to MLB in NY.What do they rule on the substitution?
Smith is the pitcher and Duke goes back to the pen and is eligable later in the game assuming Roenicke never told the umps Duke was in....If Duke had made it all the way top the mound and took the rubber, he is the P regardless of what was told to the HP ump...Pretend for a second the Rickie Weeks, just messing around, stood on the rubber between innings.. Guess what. He has to pitch to 1 batter minimum... Once a P or anyone toes the rubber, he is in. Little kids do this ALL THE TIME on the way out to the field.. I have to constantly remind coaches to tell them not to. I won't call that is kids, but once they are in HS... yup. Gotta call it.
Never touch the rubbers if it's not yours!!! It's bad luck, among other things.
Men on 1st and 3rd, 1 out...Line drive to RF.. catch is good... Runner on 3rd tags and heads towards the plate.. runner on 1st went 1/2 way to 2nd.Throw to plate is cut off and thrown to 1st to get runner going back.Runner from 3rd crosses plate before the 1st baseman catches the throw to double off the runner.Does the run count?
