  1. A fielder who is not in possession of the ball nor in the act of fielding a batted ball shall not impede a runner.10
  2. A warning for obstruction on returning or leading off a base will be issued when the defensive player is not making a play on this runner and is merely in a position that obstructs the runner. If the defensive player is making a play on the runner, she will be charged with obstruction, but not given a warning.10
  3. The infielders on defense ask one of the base umpires for time, which is granted. The plate umpire is not dealing with any substitutions or anything else. If the players are near the plate, dugouts or circle, the plate umpire can break the communication, if near the base umpires the one in the vicinity can break it up.10
  4. Two-umpire mechanics: R1 is stealing on the pitch. The throw goes over the head of F4 towards centerfield. R1 sees the errant throw and without stopping advances towards 3B. The plate umpire is responsible for all calls on R1 at 3B.10
  5. Two-umpire mechanics: R3, R2, one out with a fly ball to the outfield that is caught. If R3 stays at 3B, plate umpire should commit to 3B. If R3 advances, base umpire is responsible for all calls on R2 at 2B and 3B.10
  6. Three-umpire mechanics: R3, R2, one out with a fly ball to the outfield that is caught (U1 covering). Plate umpire is responsible for all plays on R2 at 3B when it is the initial play from the outfield.10
  7. Three-umpire mechanics: R2 with less than two outs. Pop foul fly between home and 1B. U1 must adjust their position to see the catch and is responsible for seeing R2’s tag up.10
  8. With no outs and R1 on 1B, the batter runner (BR) hits a fair batted ground ball to the right fielder who bobbles the ball. Seeing the bobbled ball, the BR heads to second base and is obstructed by the first baseman (which is called by the umpire). The throw from the right fielder arrives to the shortstop standing at second base at the time R1 is halfway between first and second base. BR, knowing that she was obstructed runs into the shortstop standing up with great force, contacting the shortstop above the waist, who is waiting to apply the tag. At the moment BR contacts the shortstop, R1 is three steps from touching home plate. The umpires rule obstruction on the first baseman, award BR second base and the R1 scores.10
  9. Three-umpire mechanics: when no base umpire covers a fly ball, U1 always has the tag up on runners at 2b.10
  10. Three umpire mechanics: with a runner at first base only, the batter hits a foul ball in the air near the first-base dugout. The plate umpire and U1 bracket the play. As soon as U1 sees that the plate umpire will make the call, U1 must hustle back to take the tag-up at 1b.10
