Had an obstruction yesterday. Doesn’t sound very exciting I know. But, when I look back over the years, I’ve actually applied an obstruction penalty very few times. At the level of ball that I did for my first 5 or so years, the fielders weren’t making many plays to being with… so whenever there was an obstructed runner (which was often), they always got to the base they were protected to. Yesterday was a brutal 13 yr old game and there was a simple run down between 2nd and 3rd and the ss got in the runners way, and they got him at 3rd. Very easy…but fun nonetheless.
