As games are well underway now across the county, it is time to start discussion game issues that you might want clarified. Have you had any games where you had some struggles getting a call right, or understood, or maybe just have questions about certain situation ? Well, let us know. The rules and customs committee will do their best to get you squared away.

State the year (1860, 1864, etc..) rules you are playing.
State the game situation as best as you can with as much detail as you can.
Then let us know what you would like clarified.

Take advantage of this great (free) resource....

For the love of the game.

For discussion. This is 1867. How do you interpret this. It will be a piece the Rules and Customs committee rolls out, but we would love to see where you guys are, and how you understand...so we can help explain it best. It can get tricky !!! Even if you dont play 1867, give it a go. It never hurts (much) to learn more years of play.
The player is in fair ground. Line drive, or fly ball, hits him in fair territory and ball lands foul on first bound. What say you ?
The player is in fair, but reaches his hand into foul territory to stop a ball, and the ball hits his hand and lands first in fair. What say you ?
Maybe in movement, you end up straddling the line, and the ball hits you on the fair ball side and bounds first in foul. What say you ?
Lets get a good discussion going. If you have citations to support your answer, please share. If not, then what makes you give the answer you did ?
