Official Baseball Rule7.13– Collisions at Home Plate

On August 29, 2014 the VSBL were notified by Baseball Australia that Official Baseball Rule
7.13  – Collisions at Home Plate is expected to be in force at all levels of Australian baseball from September 1, 2014. As such, this rule will be enforced throughout all VSBL competitions from the start of the 2014-2015 VSBL season.
Official Baseball Rule 7.13 – Collisions at Home Plate reads as follows:
1.   A runner attempting to score may not deviate from his direct pathway to the plate in order to initiate contact with the catcher (or other player covering home plate). If, in the judgment of the Umpire, a runner attempting to score initiates contact with the catcher (or other player covering home plate) in such a manner, the Umpire shall declare the runner out (even if the player covering home plate loses possession of the ball). In such circumstances, the Umpire shall call the ball dead, and all other base runners   shall   return   to   the   last   base   touched   at   the   time   of   the   collision.

Rule 7.13 Comment: The failure by the runner to make an effort to touch the plate, the runner’s lowering of  the  shoulder, or the  runner’s pushing through with his hands, elbows or arms, would support a determination that the runner deviated from the pathway in order to initiate contact with the catcher in violation of Rule 7.13. If the runner slides into the plate in an appropriate manner, he shall not be adjudged to have violated Rule 7.13. A slide shall be deemed appropriate, in the case of a feet first slide, if the runner’s buttocks and legs should hit the ground before contact with the catcher. In the case of a head first slide, a runner shall be deemed to have slid appropriately if his body should hit the ground before contact with the catcher.

2.   Unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score. If, in the judgement of the Umpire, the catcher without possession of the ball blocks the pathway of the runner, the Umpire shall call or signal the runner safe. Notwithstanding the above, it shall not be considered a violation

of this Rule 7.13 if the catcher blocks the pathway of the runner in order to field a throw, and the Umpire determines that the catcher could not have fielded the ball without blocking the pathway of the runner and that contact with the runner was unavoidable.
Further information regarding umpire interpretation of this rule will be made available at the Managers and Coaches Meeting prior to the beginning of the season.
