  1. A pitched ball ricochets off the catcher’s shin guard and rolls into the dugout. All base runners are awarded two bases.10
  2. If there are any runners on any bases when a play concludes, once one base umpire gets to their next position the plate umpire then returns to the plate area.10
  3. In a 3-umpire system and a runner on first base only, U1 starts in a set position facing home plate.10
  4. In a 3-umpire system with a runner on 2b, U1 chases a fly ball to right field. U3 is responsible for a force play at 1b.10
  5. In a 3-umpire system with one out and a runner on 2b only, U1 chases a fly ball which is caught. When R2 tags and advances to 3b, either U3 or the plate umpire can take the call at 3b, whoever is closest to the play.10
  6. No play is being made on the runners after a pitch. The batter, while still in the batter’s box and now with a 1-0 count, bends down to tie her shoe. When the catcher throws the ball back to the pitcher it hits the batter’s helmet and ricochets out of play. This is a 2-base award for all runners.10
  7. No runners on base, the batter hits a single to right field and U1 chases. The plate umpire should move all the way to a primary position for a possible force play at 1B.10
  8. The catcher attempts to pick off a runner. Her throw hits the motionless bat of the batter who is standing still in the batter’s box. The ball deflects out of play. This is not batter interference; runners are advanced on a two-base award.10
  9. The signals for Timing Play and Two Out Indicator can be used interchangeably.10
  10. When U1 is on the line, U1 can make a fair-ball call on a line drive that moves quickly through the infield near the line, and then continue three-umpire mechanics. This is an approved Situational Mechanic.10
