Please take note of the Official Baseball Rule 7.13 change effective September 1st 2014.


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 judgment 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.

Jenny Ratcliffe, Anne Bradbrook and Paula Kenning.

Respected mentor and friend of many baseball scorers throughout SA and nationally.  Her cheerful, helpful  manner and amazing expertise will be sadly missed.

Anne was Life Member and former President of SA Baseball Scorers Association and, together with Jenny Ratcliffe and Paula Kenning, helped in the development of the Council of Australian Baseball Scorers (CABS).

Anne was chosen on the panel to score the 2000 Olympic gold medal baseball game and her knowledge of the Rulebook was outstanding.

A special lady.

Our thoughts are with her family.

Ken Wesslink passed away.
