Was talking to one of my high school players who was on 1st base during one of our games this past season. There was a high fly ball hit to shortstop near second base bag with one out and runners on first and second, ump immediately calls Infield Fly. Shortstop caught the ball and threw back to pitcher. I told the player of mine that was on first(our SS) that the kid should have dropped the ball and seen what "not so bright" kids were on the base paths.
Our kid looks me dead in the eye and says "well coach, then I would of had to run to second,right". I laughed and said...."you are the not so bright kid, I would have been looking for if I was the shortstop" and simply walked off back to the coaches box.
Two innings later he says "I am an idiot". Good memories!

Lol. Them infield flys can be tricky.

I'll tell you one that happened 2 yrs ago when i was umping a game. Guy tried to bunt and fouled, tried again and fouled, tried again and i called foul ball. My partner in the field hollered "batters out''. it hit me about the 3rd strike foul tip \:D .. I played it off as if i had on my clicker only 1 strike!

when I played our coach used to have a drill that we went through about just in field flies. it got us a lot of double plays. can be tricky to kids that don't really know. but if your team knows sure can be used to your advantage.

The way I understand it, Ump calls Infield Fly rule, batter is out weather he catches it or not, runners can advance at thier own risk.
