The 2018 season has come to a close. In an exciting third game Ashley was leading 1 to 0 going into the top of the seventh. Quality then took the lead with a two run homer. Ashley then hit a two run walk off double with two outs to close the game. Congrats to Ashley for a fine season and congrats to all for a successful season. Have a safe off season and we will be in touch in 2019 spring.

Injured player ruling for next at bat
Below you will see the feedback that I received regarding a game this past weekend. The ruling in this example would be as follows. If they are playing 13 in the field and batting 12 and if a player gets hurt they can skip his turn in the lineup when the spot comes up and not receive a penalty or automatic out and therefore they are batting 11 and playing 12. The honor system applies here that you aren’t claiming one of your weaker hitters is now hurt in the latter innings of a game. We can also apply that if the player has to leave on an emergency the same situation would apply. But if you have a player thrown out by the umpire for whatever reason that when that players next turn comes to bat it will be an automatic out regardless if you have a substitute ready to take his place. It’s a penalty suffered for being tossed out of a game. In the last sentence below if you are batting and playing 9 players after someone gets hurt you would still pass that player when he comes to bat next. There would be no penalty even though you slipped below 10 payers. The reason being you didn’t sub for him so that you would have 10 players back in the field. If you sub for him so that you now have 10 back in the field you therefore must bat that person too because you now will have 10 batters. If there are any questions on this please let me know. Thanks
