    3) The lead runner slides into second base and knocks the base into short left field. The batter-runner, in advancing to third base, only touches the base plate while motoring to third. The defense takes the ball to second base (located in short left field) and appeals that the runner did not touch the base. The umpire calls out the batter-runner on the appeal. (Rule 1.06 NOTE)

    5) The batter in a Senior League Baseball game comes up to the plate with a bat that is 34 inches long and 2-5/8 inches in diameter. However, it is only 25 ounces in weight and the defense says it is an illegal bat. The umpire agrees and makes the batter get another bat.  (Rule 1.10)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    According to Rule 1.10 in Senior League Baseball, the bat must meet certain specifications in terms of length, diameter, and weight. In this case, the bat is 34 inches long and 2-5/8 inches in diameter, which meets the requirements. However, it is only 25 ounces in weight, which is below the minimum weight allowed. Therefore, the defense is correct in claiming that the bat is illegal, and the umpire makes the batter get another bat. Hence, the answer is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer is that according to Rule 1.16, the use of a helmet is only mandatory for the batter-runner and not for other baserunners. Therefore, the umpire's decision to call the baserunner out for not wearing a helmet is incorrect.

    B. False
