Barbers Hill 3 Nederland 2/FINAL-GM1/Barbers Hill leads series 1-0

Recommended Posts

I love google 

fake tag is considered obstruction. A fake tag is when the fielder is at a base and takes an action that simulates an attempted tag, which causes the runner to slow down or slide. Faking a catch of a ball while not near a base or the basepath, is not a fake tag.

No idea and don’t know if this helps , but they are calling it an Obstruction/Fake Tag call??? 

Yes that is what I was told.  The 3rd baseman faked a tag and didn’t have the ball.  It is treated as a balk.

Just got back. Great game and excellent pitching by both sides. My son has had that same obstruction call against him before. Unfortunately, it was towards the end of the game. Still early, between two really good teams. Saturday should be another good one.

bh runner was in a pick off play at 2nd. nederland catcher  threw behind runner at 2nd after a pitch. Bh runner couldnt get back to 2nd, so took off for 3rd, the ball popped out of nederland 2nd basemans glove as he attempted to catch throw & make throw to 3rd for tag out, bh runner was full speed trying to get to 3rd & sliding into 3rd not aware the ball was dropped & no throw, there was never any action by ned 3rd baseman to make runner slow down or slide or obstruct runner from base or going home. But hey 9 times out 0f 10 if an umpire is left to make a judgment or interpretation call on a play some one is getting hosed

the last part is always true but i bet there was something that made the ump think there was a fake tag attempted. they dont just do stuff like that for no reason

nothing was done to make runner slow down or slide, as hard as he was going to get to 3rd im sure he was not paying attention to the fielder. im sure the home plate umpire has a different fake tag rule he knows & can show that justifies his call. Both teams played hard & bh team is very good & well coached not taking anything away from either team.

he very well might have not been paying attention but the 3rd baseman had to have done something to get a fake tag call
