1) Bouncy Ball Pitch. If a pitch is pitched and is bouncy.. see this diagram
The first bounce is before home plate, but the second bounces right onto homeplate, is this a ball (bouncy ball) or is this a strike? (as freaky possible as this is.. I think this happened on Sunday, I just wanna know if it’s a strike or ball)
2) Fouls (yes, I’m bringing it back up, a simple yes or no is all I want) If a grounder rolls from fair territory into foul territory (this is all before first or third base line) but then rolls back into fair territory (no one has touched the ball) is the ball fair? I always thought that once a ball is foul, it can never be fair. So just a simple “Yes, a ball that rolled foul can roll back fair and is fair” or a “No, a ball that rolls foul can never be fair” will do.. I don’t need any bleeding brains =)
3) Forfeiting, both teams How does one work this scenario? It has been brought up many of times and I’ve never actually found out or asked how it’s handled.. Does both teams take a loss? Do they Tie? Do the Team with less of a team lose and the one with more closer to a team win? Etc..
Just a side note, please don’t make this another 5 pager trying to figure out these simple questions =p If you are unsure about the answer, please refrain from posting unless you are 100% sure. =)
Question 1 - Strike Strike zone at the plate is one foot left, right and above. The above diagram demonstrates this.
The only way it is not a strike is if the umpire makes the call that the pitch is a bouncie which under rule 8.b a pitch that exceeds one foot in height from the bottom of the ball during the last bounce prior crosing home plate. The ump has to make that determination. The big thing for the ump is to determine if the bottom of the ball is more than a foot during the last bouce before the plate.
Question 3 - Both receive a loss Rule 7.04 a team failing to field at least (4) men and (4) women within 15 minuets after the scheduled gametime will forfeit that game. A forfeit from a lack of players shall count as a loss.
Not all. I mass produced a few so as to flood the market and deplete their value. Now the vintage armbands are the only ones worth owning. How do you know whether your armband is vintage you might ask? All vintage armbands would have been acquired pre-mid season party.
