In little league can a batter advance to second base on a walk if the pitcher is on the rubber with the ball?
No. If the pitcher is on the mound and the runner runs to second they will be considered out.
In little league you have a batter in full count and change pitcher the new pitcher threw one strike and the batter is out who is responsible for that defensive out?
In any league, the last pitcher to pitch the ball is responsible for that batter. If he strikes him out, the credit goes to him, regardless of how many pitches he throws.
Only if the pitcher warms up on the diamond.
ususally they cannot because the batter could confuse it with the ball
If a runner does not go all the way back to the base when the pitcher is on the rubber is he able to steal before the pitcher pitches in little league ages 10-12?
I think the stealing rule in Little League is NO leading, runner cannot start running until the ball crosses the strike zone or is hit by the batter. There are no lead-offs in Little League. (except Senior & Big League) Correct answer If a runner is heading back to the base when the pitcher is on the mound, he MUST go back to the base, otherwise he can be called out. Now if you get… Read More
In Little League, the batter is out if they hit the ball with one foot completely out of the batter's box. There is no penalty if they don't hit the ball. There could be a penalty on the pitcher if the reason the batter has a foot out of the box is because the batter didn't finish stepping into the box. A quick pitch is an illegal pitch which counts as a ball.
Is there a limit to the number of times a pitcher can beam a batter before he must be removed from the game in Little League?
18 Pardon me while I chuckle.
Where in the Little League rule book does it state that if a batter picks up a ball then throws it back to the pitcher that runners cannot steal?
It dosn't, but as soon as batter touch ball, ball would be dead and runner would have to return
Can a batter advance past first base if ball four pitch is a wild pitch or passed ball. In other words is the ball still live and is the batter now runner able to advance as far as he wishes to try?
I can't speak for Little League or the leagues played by the younger folks but as far as college and Major League Baseball is concerned, the answer is yes. A runner is allowed to attempt to advance his/her position on the base paths at any time where there has not been a time out called.
No, the batter is not out. The runner could be out though. For example in Little League if the runner touches the ball before it goes by a fielder, the runner is out. (The pitcher does not count as a fielder for the purpose of the rule) The runner is not out if he/she is touching a base.
its called a walk and I'm a girl and i play little league ---------- Officially it's called a "base on balls," but everyone calls it a "walk."
the batter is out
Yes you can. Officially the ball has to reach the batter before the runner can leave the base. Some local leagues adopt the rule that the ball must be caught before the runner can advance.
a little league pitcher can hit a kid up to 4 times but it depends on wear like if you hit them in the head twice than your out and cant pitch but if you hit them inb the leg then you can hit them again unless you hit someone twice in 1 inning
A 70 mph pitch travels at approximately 102.6 feet per second. The distance from the pitcher to the batter is 60 feet, 6 inches. Therefore, the batter has a little less than six-tenths of a second to react.
The batter should run to 1st base as fast as she/he can if they miss the ball you can run to 2nd base
This play is referred to as "redeye". If a batter misses (or does not swing) at the 3rd strike, and the catcher drops it, the runner must run to first before the catcher throws the dropped pitch to first. If the runner is beaten by the throw, it is simply a strikeout in the books. If the runner beats out the throw, it still goes as a strikeout, but his advance to first will be… Read More
There is a rule in baseball known as the uncaught third strike rule. This rule states that a catcher must catch the ball from the pitcher on a third strike for an out to be recorded. If, on a third strike, the pitched ball touches the ground before reaching the catcher or the catcher does not cleanly catch the ball, the batter becomes a runner and may advance to first base and must be tagged… Read More
Are little leaguers supposed to be taught to run on the third strike regardless of whether or not the catcher misses the ball?
No. There is no 'uncaught third strike' rule in Little League. A base runner can advance if a third strike is not caught but the batter may not reach first base due to an uncaught third strike. Majors and minors can't, but juniors and seniors can.
If he is skilled enough
In American Little League baseball, for twelve-year-olds, the pitcher stands 46 feet from the batter. For very young players, smaller fields may be used, while older players may use larger fields. There are more details available in the official Little League Playing Rules, but these rules are copyrighted, and not available online.
Honestly, it varies. I've seen short little league pitchers that are the best. But speaking from what experts would say, the upper 5 feet, 5'8, 5'9, etc. Less then that as well, though. If your a little league pitcher, or your son is, don't let the lack of height get you down. Anything is possible.
If you are generically using the word "little league" then the answer is yes. Under USSSA rules you can bat the entire lineup and after the 9th batter the remainder are called EH's (extra hitters) or terms similar. These individuals will not take the field but bat when the 10 & 11 slots come up. If you are speaking of Little League Baseball Rules (official term) then I believe you bat 9 and have substitutions.
Jehrico Scott 44 mph
Many little leagues play a 9th batter rule. At the coach/machine pitch level our league plays that when the 9th batter comes to the plate, the hitting team must announce it or he's out after a pitch is thrown. Once announced, there are automatically two outs. That batter completes his at-bat, either safe or out and then the half-inning ends. For our Minors (kid-pitch) kids, same rules, except the 9th batter can stay on the… Read More
46 feet. http://www.sportsknowhow.com/baseball/field-dimensions/little-league-baseball-field-dimensions.html
For little league they are usually 46-60 meaning 46 ft from pitcher to catcher and 60 ft from the bases
i think this pitcher in little league does and he can pitch 59 mph
If no one is on base then a ball is awarded to the batter. If a runner or runners are on base then they will be moved up one base and a ball is awarded to the batter.
MLB players do that sometimes. I don't see why the rules would be different in little-league. A player can hit the ball with the bat in any way he pleases.
Jason Marquis pitched for the South Shore American Little League in the 1991 Little League World Series and the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2004 MLB World Series.
the average speed is 64.78 MPH
Pat Venditte did, so yeah.
I am not sure what you were going for when you typed this but here's what I thought of: In baseball you have outfielder, infielder, batter, pitcher, and striker. Uses: Outfielder: The outfilder stands in the outfield and catches far-flying balls. Infielder: The infielder stands a little farther in than the outfielder, and catches not as far-flying balls that go just outside the base diamond. Batter: The batter stands at home plate and hits the… Read More
You must pitch the ball in 12 seconds in pro and little baseball. If the batter doesn't come, then you just have to pitch it.
If a base runner is leading off of a base while the pitcher has the ball when can he steal a base Is it once the pitcher throws the ball or once the ball is over homeplate?
in little league you have to wait for the ball to cross home plate but every level after little league you can steal at any time you want to no matter who has the ball or where the pitcher is or what he is doing.
Home Plate is in fair territory.
The force-out rule is the same in little league as it is in the majors. If there is nowhere else for the runner to go because the runner behind him must advance, the force-out is at the base he's headed to.
No, he can not. Since he does not have the ball he will be called for interference.
from 50-80 depending on the pitcher
In little league baseball if batter hit the ball with butt of bat and the ball goes in play is it a live ball?
Yes. The only time it would not be live is if the batter, when swinging, hit the ball with his/her hands it would be a dead ball.
What happens when a player lead off a base in little league when bases are loaded and the batter gets a single?
the runner who left the base early is called out.
If the measure of ease of hitting a fastball were how long the batter sees it, then the calculation would be straightforward. Dividing the major league distance to the mound, 60.5 ft, by the little league distance, 46 ft, gives approximately 1.3152. Multiplying 40 mph by 1.3152 gives 52.6 mph, which a major league batter should easily hit. Multiplying 50 mph by 1.3152 gives 65.76 mph, which a major league batter should also easily hit… Read More
No. You don't have to steal. But you do have to advance to the next base if a runner is about to occupy the base you just left from.
Generally speaking a player at a young age begins his base "career". For most children this would start in Little League. The player would advance from there.
Jonathan Taylor once was clocked at 88mph on May 8th, 1992 while playing for the Pirates, a little league team in Tulsa, OK. He was 12 years old
Jonathan Taylor once was clocked at 88mph on May 9th, 1993 while playing for the Pirates. A little league team in Tulsa, OK. He was only 12 years old.
When bunting in Little League does the batter have to remove the bat from the strike zone or is this considered offered at or attempt?
In little league like the majors when bunting and you miss the pitch it is a strike. It depends on the umpire; if he thinks the batter offered at the pitch, he will call the strike. Simply holding the bat in the strike zone is not offering at the pitch unless the umpire decides that. It is a safer bet to teach your batters to pull the bat out of the strike zone if they… Read More
Only on a third strike with 1st base un-occupied. This does not apply to Little League. Note: he is entitled to TRY to run to first base. He can be thrown out by the catcher if the throw reaches the baseman before the runner. If he beats the throw, then he is safe. The pitcher is given credit for a strikeout. The catcher is given an error.
In general, add aboout 20 mph because you are calculating the different pitching lengths. Little league pitchers throw from 45 feet, major leaguers throw from 60.5 feet. For example, a little league pitcher throwing a 70 mph pitch is equivalent to a major league player throwing about a 90 mph pitch.
I am not quite sure who the fastest pitcher in general would be, but a few pitchers such as Trey Quinn, Kennon Fontenot, and Kyle Carter are known for pitching in the low 80's. The fastest little league pitch I have ever seen was 84mph by Kyle Carter from Columbus, GA.
