I was searching around the internet to see if I could find any of those old "You Make The Call" videos that they used to show between innings in the 80's.
Anyway, they're tough to find, but I did find this.

Let me know if anyone else has any luck with stuff like this. I love it.

Someone explain this one to me... (Nevermind, explained below, my mistake)


19. With two strikes, a weak-hitting pitcher is trying to sacrifice. When the pitcher attempts to bunt an inside pitch the ball strikes his hand holding the lower part of the bat. The ball goes fair, the pitcher picks up the ball and fires it over the first baseman head while the batter and the other runners advance two bases. You make the call!


19. Because the pitch struck the batter on the third strike, he is out and the ball is dead. The runners must return to their bases. A player's fists are not considered a part of the bat (6.05f, 6.08b-Approved Ruling, 2.00-Bunt, Strike)

My brother and I actually brought that up at the Bears opener. Those things rocked.

Easy. The batter swung at the pitch. You can't get a HBP on a strike.

Whoops, I missed the "attempts to bunt" part.

Replays definitely showed that the ball hit his bat and not his hand and should have been allowed the sacrifice. Joe Buck and Tim McCarver are going crazy!
