    Re: Pitcher not having contact with pitcher's plate

    +In FED only the HC may delay the game by questioning calls or rulings.  


    An assistant coach may ask about a call or ruling but not delay the game by arguing.+


    I call bullsh!t.  You may have been taught that, and may even get away with it, but I challenge you to cite any NFHS rule that supports the inability of ANY properky attired coach to discuss a rule interpretation with an umpire on the field.


    A total myth.  You have a professional responsibility to respond to any coach that approaches you in a proper manner.

    My Bad

    Sorry, wrong sport.



    I made a mistake in NFHS Baseball rule 3-3-1(g)(6) only the head coach may leave the dugout or coaches box to dispute a call.

    Re: My Bad

    When I do a pre game I only allow the manager and team captains to attend.

    I do inform the Mgr that they are the only ones allowed to question a rule, or to speak to the umpires in any way during the game.

    If they have an issue they can inform the mgr and then he/she can ask for time out for a discussion.

    Call me hard nosed, but failure to do this has come back to bite me you know where.

    No, I would call you over-officious, and not following your advice has never bitten me anywhere from local to international games.
