By Erika I. Jankowiak

Whenever studying to become a beginner or expert umpire you'll find a typical problem and that's simply because baseball has many background and is such a widespread sport there are rule myths which have occupied our culture and also have persisted for such a long time that you might not even know they're false. Understand what is the rule and what is fake will particularly create a big impression on those attending a future umpire school training with dreams of becoming a professional or a serious amateur umpire

Therefore without further waiting, here are some of the commonly misstated rules that could provide you with a hard time

A batter can't run past first base whenever after he's walked. The rule says that a runner must return, immediately, after proceeding past first base. It doesn't indicate any exceptions to a player who was walked vs. one which reached by a base hit.

It's a force out whenever a runner is put out for not tagging up on a fly ball out. In the event the batter is out on a fly ball, all forces are removed. In case a gamer does not tag-up, he is able to be called out right after an appeal but it isn't a force out. Virtually any runs that cross the plate before the out is made are mentioned.

A batter needs to be out in case a bunted ball touches the ground and also bounces back up plus strikes the bat. The rule says the bat cannot hit the ball again this is not to say that the ball can't hit the bat. If this happens there isn't any out.

It's a fair ball if a fielder's feet are usually in fair territory once the ball is actually touched. A ball is just judged fair or foul based on the where the ball is positioned on or over the ground during the time the ball is actually touched. It' doesn't matter where the actual player's body is.

A batter cannot change batter's boxes after 2 strikes and also bat from the other side of the plate. A batter may switch at any time unless of course the pitcher is already "ready to pitch".
