14
(No Transcript)
15
Concussion Recognition and Management (3-3-9
10-2-3k)
  • The umpires are not responsible for the
    evaluation or management of the athlete after she
    is removed from play.
  • If an appropriate health-care professional
    (Certified Athletic Trainer or Medical
    Professional trained in Brain Trauma) determines
    that the athlete HAS NOT suffered a concussion,
    the athlete may return to play.

16
Suggested Concussion Management
  • Written authorization is no longer required with
    on-site medical staff.
  • If there is no appropriate health-care
    professional available to evaluate the athlete,
    the athlete SHOULD NOT be permitted by the coach
    to return to play.

17
Suggested Concussion Management
  1. No athlete should return to play (RTP) or
    practice on the same day of a concussion.
  2. Any athlete suspected of having a concussion
    should be evaluated by an appropriate health-care
    professional that day.
  3. Any athlete with a concussion should be medically
    cleared by an appropriate healthcare professional
    prior to resuming participation in any practice
    or competition.

18
Suggested Concussion Management
  • After medical clearance, return to play should
    follow a step-by-step protocol with provisions
    for a delayed return based upon the re-occurrance
    of any signs or symptoms.

Scored/Retired Runner Interference (8-6-18)
  • Intent no longer the determining factor in ruling
    interference by a runner who has scored/been
    retired
  • Rule now consistent with definition of
    interference
  • Rule easier to enforce, enhancing more consistent
    application

21
Scored/Retired Runner Interference (8-6-18)
  • The new rule states that after being declared out
    or after scoring, a runner interferes with a
    defensive players opportunity to make a play on
    another runner
  • The Ball is dead
  • The runner closest to home is called out
  • Other runners return to the base occupied at the
    time of the interference.

25
Force Play Reinstatement(2-24-4)
  • Clarifies the force-play reinstatement rule
  • Art. 4 . . . If a forced runner, after touching
    the next base, except home, retreats for any
    reason towards the base she had first occupied,
    the force play is reinstated and she may again be
    put out if the defense tags the base to which she
    is forced.

26
Force Play Reinstatement(2-24-4)
  • The home exception was necessary to be
    consistent with Rule 2-49 and Case Book play 2.49
    B
  • Once a runner legally scores, she cannot be put
    out BUT, she could be guilty of interference
    (which results in the runner closest to home
    declared out)

28
New products are being manufactured that dry
the hands, but leave no residue on the ball or
glove Any material that DOES leave a residue on
the ball is prohibited i.e. rock resin
29
Ball-Rotation(6-5 New)
  • The pitcher has a choice of balls at the start of
    each half inning unless both balls do not get put
    into play.
  • In the bottom of the first, the pitcher must
    throw the unused ball.
  • Thereafter, the ball in play should be returned
    to the 16-foot circle after every half inning.

30
Ball-Rotation(6-5 New)
  • The pitcher may request the other ball before
    throwing a warm-up pitch by giving the ball in
    her possession to the plate umpire, the pitcher
    has now made a choice and must pitch that ball
    until such time as the ball goes out of play or
    becomes blocked.

31
NFHS Softball2011Points of Emphasis
32
Sportsmanship
  • Any form of behavior intended or designed to
    embarrass, ridicule or demean others is
    unacceptable
  • Public Address (PA) systems have been utilized to
    intimidate/taunt visiting teams by playing
    negative sound effects or playing motivational
    music only for the home team

34
Team and Player Equipment

    equipment (10-2-3a) prior to the contest. 
  • The following are of specific concern/interest
  • Bats
  • Helmets

35
(No Transcript)
36
Bats
  • Broken, altered or bats that deface the ball are
    also illegal
  • A knick or paint chip in the bat from a player
    knocking their metal cleats against the bat to
    loosen debris should not render a bat illegal

37
Bats
  • Materials inside the bat or treatments/devices
    used to alter the bat specifications and/or
    enhance performance (i.e. bat warmers) are
    prohibited.

41
Game Management
  • There are several game-management areas that will
    assist in a smooth-running contest.
  • The following are of particular concern
  • Lineup Cards
  • Field Areas
  • Pace of Game

42
Lineup Cards
  • Lineup cards must be verified by the head coach
    as correct with name and uniform number and all
    substitutes listed at the pregame conference
  • New rule provides a penalty for a coach who fails
    to submit an accurate lineup card
  • Umpires can assist with managing this situation
    by reminding coaches of the new rule and giving
    them ample opportunity to verify the lineup card
    before final submission

43
Field Areas
  • Designated warm-up areas should be located in an
    area adjacent to the field and be in view of the
    umpires
  • During the contest, players must warm up within
    the confines of the field or in the adjacent warm
    up area
  • Coaches must remain in their designated
    dugout/bench.
