Believe I am experiencing a "senior moment."
Didn't I recently read somewhere that LL Inc., was revising 2012 Rule #6.09(b) to include Majors and below level batters the opportunity to run to 1st base, with liabilty, on a dropped 3rd strike by the catcher-----resulting in an "out" or "safe" call? [All other 6.09(b) conditions being applicable]
I'm assuming you are talking LL Baseball (since it's already the rule in LL Softball).
Lots of rumors on this one but nothing official from LL that I am aware of.
Perhaps this is one of the Agenda Items for the upcoming Regional Mini-Congresses.
Given LL's Inc., November 23rd Bulletin announcing rules changes for 2012, I guess I was not experiencing a senior moment in regard to the 3rd stike not-caught, majors and below; albeit the details spelled out in the November 23rd bulletin were not recalled. Options to use, not use, etc.
