I was listening to a Tribe (Indians) game the other day, and that very thing happened. Apparently they awarded the batter a hit (or that might have been called ball 4, I'm not entirely sure which, but I THINK it was a hit. It's definitely not a strike.

Rule 10:13(f) When an umpire awards the batter or any runner one or more bases because of interference or obstruction, charge the fielder who committed the interference or obstruction with one error, no matter how many bases the batter, or runner or runners, may advance

In a 'catcher interference' call, the batter is awarded first base, and it is not an official 'at-bat', thus not counting in the batter's total 'at-bats' for the game.

On "catcher interference", the batter is awarded first base, no official at-bat is charged (as it is notated in the box score as "'Joe Blow' awarded first base on catcher interference) and the catcher is charged an error.

Does a 91 Geo Metro have an interference engine?

ACCORDING TO THE CHILTON MANUAL YES. EDIT: According to the manuals and parts description, they say these are interference engines. The SOHC versions are not interference while the rarer DOHC versions are interference engines. Since they are not aware of what engine you are working on, they would rather be safe and tell you it is an interference engine. I would have destroyed at least two of these engines if they were interference. I have changed timing belts and been off a few teeth at first.


Can a batter be taken out of the game while batting?

Yes, batters can be ejected while they are batting, usually by arguing about the strike the zone with the umpire. This usually only happens after the batter has struck out, rather then in the middle of the count, but if the batter argues too much, the umpire can toss him at any time.

If a batter gets hit by a pitch ball can the batter decline to go to 1st and continue his at bat?

Unless you are talking about professional baseball, yes the batter can decline to take the issued walk. Only in minor leagues such as competitive fastpitch softball can you reject this. However, it rarely happens because the batter sometimes would rather get the free base than ground out, pop out, or strike out!


When a batter is hitting foul after foul after foul. Is the batter doing this on purpose to work the pitcher?

A Baseball player hitting foul after foul is done more so to stay alive (not strike out) then to work the pitcher ... You have to keep in mind that the batter him self is using up energy to hit the ball foul ... The batter would rather get a hit then repetitively hitting the ball foul ...


What is a pitch out in softball?

A pitch out is another term for intentionally walking a batter. What that means is the pitcher will pitch four balls(not strikes) in order to put the batter on base without giving her a chance to hit. The batter will only get to first base unless she steals or gets hit around in a later situation. The reason for this is normally when the batter is a very good hitter and the pitcher would rather give the batter after her a chance to hit so that a run isn't scored. Pitch outs are thrown very far out from the strike zone. The pitcher will throw only at 70 mph (not exactly- around that speed) while the catcher stands up and out of the way to catch it. A pitch out is a term for intentionally throwing a ball to the outside of the plate (where the batter cannot hit it) because you believe that the runner (usually on first) is going to try to steal a base. The pitch out allows the catcher to stand up as soon as the pitch is thrown and be in a throwing position as soon as he/she receives the ball. This allows the catcher to get the ball to the the target base very quickly and can greatly improve the chances of throwing out the runner. An intentional walk is when the pitcher intentionally throws four balls to put the runner on first. There are a number of situations where a team may want to do this. Example: there are runners on second and third and you want to setup a force play at home plate. In this case you would intentionally walk the batter.


What keeps batter from mixing if you take out the dividers in a checkerboard cake?

If you gently lift the dividers straight up, without stirring the batter, it will stay in place because of its thickness. Cake batter tends to be a rather thick consistency, so it's really quite easy to keep the two colors from blending.

Does the 2000 ford contour sedan have an interference or non interference engine?

I assume you're talking about the 4-cylinder engine, and yes, it is a non-interference engine. The pistons have "cutouts"to prevent the valves hitting them in case the timing belt breaks. This doesn't apply to the V6, of course, since it has a timing chain, rather than a belt.

What is difference between unshielded twisted pair and shielded twisted pair?

Shielded twisted-pair cable encases the signal-carrying wires in a conducting shield to reduce electromagnetic interference. Unshielded twisted-pair cable does not rely on physical shielding to block interference, but rather on media filters.


Does the 2000 ford contour have a none interference motor?

The 4-cylinder 2.0 liter engine is a non-interference engine, in that the pistons have "cutouts" in the tops to prevent the valves hitting them in case the timing belt breaks. The 2.5 liter V6 does not require this, since it uses a timing chain, rather than a belt.

Can Fiber Optic Cable lay with electrical cable together. it is right or some interference each other?

Yes, fiber optics work with light pulses rather that electrical charges. One of the main benefits are that there is no EMI(electromagnetic interference) since magnitism does not affect light. Thus there is no problem with laying electrical cables with fiber optic cables.
