ARMCHAIR UMPIRE –
Situation: Two outs, the runner on Third base is hit by a fair, batted ball near the base (while standing on the line, hence, in fair territory).
The umpire properly declares the runner out for interference. Since this is the third out, the batter never reached first base.
Question: Does the batter get to bat again to lead off the next inning?
This season, our Charter’s Northern Marlins won the 2020 Super League Championship at West Beach against the Southern Seahawks.
The Championship game was played on 22 December 2020 with several of our GGCD members participating.
Congratulations goes to Darren Roberts (our Div 1 Coach) who was on the Coaching Staff
and our players, AJ, Jake Campbell, Jake Shotton, Josh Ledgard, Tom Norley and John Inglis.
Well Done, Fellas!

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE –
Div 1 / Div 2 Squad 1998-1999 with Head Coach, Phil Alexander.
Four are still playing for us, however, in the lower Senior Divisions – 22 years later and still having fun playing for the Dodgers.
Thanks to Ian Manson for the photo.
ARMCHAIR UMPIRE RULING –
For scoring purposes, the batter is credited with a base hit and – he does not bat again to lead off the next inning.
(FYI – RUNNERS – do NOT stand on the third base line when leading off – stand well into the dirt or foul territory!)
IN MEMORIAM – RIP: HANK AARON (MLB HOME RUN CHAMPION)
See you at the Ball Park!
