Diamond Challenge 1a. reproduced with permission from the Jim Evans Academy of Professional Umpiring

Since joining the SnakePit, I've seen several GDT posts questioning the official MLB rules and decisions made by the umpires and got the idea to post a series of "Diamond Challenge". This series was created as a training tool by Jim Evans - a former MLB umpire who now runs the Academy of Professional Umpiring. 

Read the full size version of this comic and share your call, I'll post the official ruling in a few days. When you post, I encourage you to reference specific rules, precedence or if you witnessed a similar situation on the field.

Let's "kick some dirt" and have fun learning and debating the rules of the game !
