    Rule Interpretation: SLIDE RULE

    Clarification to the below rule

    Section 9 - Rule 23 - Slide Rule:  Mandatory. Players advancing to second or any other base with intent to break-up a double play must slide directly into the bag. If a runner goes in standing up and a play is being me on him, and he makes contact with the defensive player, he will be declared out. All calls regarding rough play, sliding, etc., shall be judgment calls of the umpires. Penalty: Runner is out and the ball is dead. All runners must return to the last base they legally had advanced to prior to the infraction. While a head first slide should be discouraged it is not against the rules. However, a runner may not slide head first into home plate (He will be declared out and the ball is dead).

    CLARIFICATION:

    "Must slide directly into the bag" - The intent of this rule is to ensure that the runner must be able to touch the base he is going to in attempting to break up a double play. This can be either by his feet or hands.  As long as the runner can touch the base with either a foot or hand when he slides into a base, he may break up a double play.

    Miami-Dade County Commissioner and former City Manager of the City of Miami, CARLOS GIMENEZ, threw out the first pitch this past Saturday, April 30th at the Grapeland Park Sports Complex. Commissioner Gimenez was instrumental as City Manager of the City of Miami in getting the bonds on the ballot, and approved by our residents, in order for us to be able to today enjoy the great recreation and sports complex at Grapeland Park. The complex includes the Water Park, Golf Course Clubhouse, Baseball Complex, and Community Center.

    In addition to being a strong supporter of the Miami Youth Baseball Association, Carlos has always been an advocate of recreation and sports, and the role they play in the development of our future leaders (our youth).
