I have tried to read the reponses to the non-reporting player question... the replies will not post... could we have clarification on this displayed? as I understand the rules...the original player will take the place of the 'non-reporting' batter with the count at the time that 'B' has on them at he time the infraction is brought to the attention of the umpire..
if the 'non-reporting' batter reaches base because of a batted ball, hit batsman, walk etc. he is declared out if the appeal is made before a pitch is made to the next batter...
if a pitch is made to the following batter .. the non-reporting batter becomes the proper player with no penalty...
if this is not correct please advise...
When does a player have to report to the umpire when they come to bat for another person? Example: Joey comes to the plate and doesn't report to umpire that he is batting for Ted. The first pitch is pitched and is called a strike. The defensive team brings it to the umpires attention and umpire calls batter out. What is the ruling? My understanding is that the batter has until he reaches first base to report. Meaning as long as he doesn't hit ball or get walked he can report any time during his at bat.
I am having issues finding a reciept of our transaction purchasing insurance & registering our team online. Our legion wants an itemized receipt to re-imburse the program for the cost of the insurance/registration. I know on the national website I can see a transaction reciept but that 'doesn't state what the $ is being spent on' any help would be fantastic
Ok well the Panhandle Baseball Conference is a good thing. I would recommend every legion team on the west side of the state to join. It's trying to help us players get into the media just like the players on the east side of the state. Western Nebraska doesn't have school sanctioned baseball. In which that means we don't get looked at! I know of many good baseball players on teams on the west side of the state that don't get looked at cause maybe their team isn't all that great or that player just isn't a good baseball player. The Panhandle Baseball Conference is doing alot to help players get noticed. They take weekly stats from each team and give it the media. There will be a Player of the Week every week. Plain and simple its a good idea and we need to support it so all you legion coaches give them a call at 308-635-6369. If you feel the need to take a look into it go to this linkhttp://www.panhandlebaseball.blogspot.com/ thank you to all the teams that have already joined. And they welcome any other team interested.
I was wondering if anyone else had heard the rumor that the NSAA is kicking around or asking the State to ok High School Baseball to go into the summer as Iowa does. And if this happens what happens to Legion ball or can the American Legion do anything to stop it. This came to me from a School Board member that was told, he told me the state leislator is already debating it( I assume they have to approve it).
Aurora will be hosting an 8 team seniors baseball tournament in 2010 on June 25th, 26th and 27th. As of now we have 7 teams and are looking for one more to fill the final spot. If your team would be interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
We need to open this up to 19 years old. This would help the class c teams to have Junior and Senior teams. We play alot of class c teams that have 14 years old play senoir ball which should be playing Junior ball because there don't have enough Senior players. If you have six Senior players out what are you to do tell them you are not going to have a team. No you bring young kids up to play with them which is not fair for those kids you bring up.
