  1. R0-No outs. Groundball to F6 who throws late to F3 causing her to stretch out for the catch, pulling her foot slightly off of the base as the batter-runner touches 1B. U1 signals “off the bag” and “safe”. The defense coach asks U1 to get help from PU on the pulled foot.4
  2. R0 with a 1-2 count, the batter swings and misses the pitch for strike three. The pitched ball deflects off of F2’s glove and rolls toward the backstop along the third base side of home plate. F2 fields the ball and throws to F3. The batter-runner runs the entire distance to 1B in fair territory. As the batter-runner is one step from 1B, she makes contact with the glove of F3 just as the ball is about to enter her glove.4
  3. R2 with a 1-1 count, F2 attempts to pick off R2 at 2B. The ball, F6 and R2 all arrive at 2B at the same time blocking U1’s view of the play. R2 is called safe. The defense coach asks U1 to go for help on the call.4
  4. R1 with a 2-0 count and one out. The pitcher delivers an illegal pitch and R1 leaves early. The batter lines out to F3 who then steps on 1b for the double play.4

  15. Bottom of the 7th inning, tie game. With one out and bases loaded, the batter hits a fly ball that is caught. The runner on third base leaves on the first touch of the catch, the runner on second base stays in contact with the base, the runner on first base leaves before the caught ball is touched. The runner on third base scores easily ahead of the throw to the plate. The catcher immediately throws to first base appealing that the runner on first base left her base before the caught ball was touched.4
  16. In the top of the first inning with bases loaded and two outs, the pitcher strikes out the batter with a 3-2 count. The offense immediately informs the plate umpire that the defensive team inaccurately listed their catcher on the lineup card.4
  17. Bottom of the seventh inning of a tied game with no baserunners and no outs. #4 hits an out-of-the–park home run, but misses home plate.

The catcher, who had not vacated her normal fielding position, now appeals to the plate umpire that the runner missed home plate4
  18. With one out and base runners on second and third bases, the batter flies out. The base runner on third base tags up after the catch, but the base runner on second base does not.

The offensive coach immediately protests the call at second base.4
  19. The defensive head coach notifies the plate umpire that the DP (#3) will pitch for the Flex (#20), reducing the number of players in the lineup to nine.

The DP (#3) will return to playing offense only4
  20. In the second inning, the Flex (#32) enters the batting order for the starting DP (#25) to run the bases.

The plate umpire does not allow this substitution.4

  22. In the top of the 6th inning, the defensive head coach does not report substitute #39 as the new pitcher.

Before the first pitch to the next batter, the offensive coach reports to the plate umpire that #39 is an unreported substitute4
  23. With a runner on second base, the first baseman (#8) plays directly behind second base (up the middle) and the defense doesn’t position anybody in the first baseman’s traditional position. On a ground ball up the middle, #8 fields the ball and throws out the runner from second base advancing to third base. The offensive coach informs the plate umpire that the defensive change was not reported rendering #8 as an unreported player.4
  24. With runners on third and first bases and one out, right fielder #53 catches a batted fly ball. The runner at third base legally tags up and attempts to score. The runner at first base leaves before the caught fly ball and is put out on the throw from #53 (F9 to F3) after the runner from third base scores. The offensive coach immediately reports to the plate umpire that #53 is not on the opposing team’s line-up card and also was not reported as a substitute. The plate umpire confirms both of these things to be true. The offensive coach does not want the result of the play.4
  25. The batter, #12, hits a double scoring the runner from second base. The ball is returned to the pitcher who takes the pitch signal while not in the proper pitching position.
