2017 SSUSA Rule Changes
Several rule changes/clarifications were approved by the SSUSA Rules Committee and went into effect on December 1, 2016.
With the exception of SSUSA Rule 6.16B, MVUDSS will incorporate the following SSUSA rule changes into its remaining fall 2016 season and spring 2017 season:
CHOPPED BALL (1.13) – Definition amended at the end of the EFFECT to clarify and affirmatively state that the ball is dead.
BATTER‐RUNNER REACHING FIRST BASE (8.4(1)) – Rule was amended to add the phrase “...must touch some portion of the double bag extending into foul territory...” in order to remove confusion by some that touching both the orange and white bag simultaneously results in an out being called. It is NOT an out.
- COMMITMENT LINE (8.8) – Rule was amended to clarify that after a runner is tagged by a defender on the home plate side of the commitment line and is declared safe, it remains a live ball and he DOES NOT have to proceed to the scoring plate or cross the scoring line.
- DEAD BALL (9.1X) – Rule was amended to define the effect of a batted ball striking an umpire in fair territory. If in front of, or before being touched by, an infielder: Batter awarded 1st base and on base runners advance only if forced. Otherwise: Live ball.
- WIND OR SUN AFFECTING BOTH PITCHERS OR SUN AFFECTING BATTERS (6.16B) – The SSUSA amendment to repeal the 2015 rule, allowing the umpire to move the pitcher (and pitching screen) laterally 6 feet when the sun is affecting the batter, was not adopted by our league; i.e. the current rule will remain. Refer to league Rule 17.c.(5).
