Vegas· 3 hours agoThe mat was put in use because the umpire, catcher and the batter needed to have a normal distancing. So if the umpire is standing back 6 feet we feft it would be best to have a mat for this year only.
Jerdy· 3 days agoThank You.:0)
Aldridge· 3 days agoJerdy, There is a link on the home page to the software they will be using for the draft. 9:30am this saturday.
Jerdy· 3 days agoIs there going to be a virtual draft this weekend. If so, at what time and will it be through FB, Zoom or some other medium?
Joe· 3 days agoWe tried it in an all star game a few years back...it was fine...the leagues you're talking about is lob ball, they can pitch as high as they want.
Burgy· 3 days agoJoe, has anybody tried pitching to the plate as you're describing it? When I've seen such a plate used in one league the pitchers had a 30 foot arc it seemed. Seems to me to hit the plate from a 5 ft high arc, it would have to cross the batter's knees almost.
Joe· 3 days agoRick, the pitching rules haven't changed, what's illegal and what happens because the pitch was illegal stays the same.
(iii) The ball must be delivered with a perceptible arc of at least
three feet from the point of release and may not exceed a
maximum height of 10 feet above the ground.
The Batter will either take the pitch for a called ball, or, if the batter hits the
ball, whether fair or foul, he will return to the batter’s box and the
count against him will be increased by one ball. Runners will return
to the bases they occupied at the time of the illegal pitch. Note:
These are the complete pitching regulations. Any infraction of the
above is an illegal pitch. A ball is called on the batter, the ball is
dead, and the runners may not advance.
Richard Corsi· 3 days agoWith the mat in place (very good) do we still follow the 10 foot hight rule? Why I ask? In case the ball falls on any part of the black mat BUT the pitcher tossed the ball higher than 10 feet. Would that be considered a BALL?
