You Are Here ==> Home Page || It's Your Call
Hello baseball enthusiasts. There has been some great feedback about the quarterly posting of the play-a-month page, three month worth at one time. I will try to post the plays no later than the first full week of the quarter. If not, you have my permission to let the ump here about it -- fair enough? I will attempt to broadcast a reminder to all of you shortly after the posting takes place. I hope to keep you challenged with a good mix of plays including some from the chronicles of recreation ball – where anything can happen. Anyway, it should be fun.
I will post plays for 3 months each quarter. The answers, with explanations and applicable rules, will be posted on a separate answer page. The answer page link is at the bottom of the page. You are on your honor to make all the calls BEFORE consulting the answer page. All rulings are made for the Official Baseball Rules (Major League Rules) only - sorry no breakdown for NCAA or NFHS rules.

The basis for this play comes from Howell, Michigan and deals with the actions of the fielder when a runner attempts to steal of a base.
