I got 4 of 10, but I wasn't completely wrong on 3 others.

It isn't too easy.

I got 6, plus a couple of "could be's"

Tough.

When I was a kid. I subscribed to "Baseball Digest" which had a section called "So you think you know baseball" and one of these questions every month.
They would have cute caricatures showing the play, which I liked, since I was a KID.

Pretty interesting. I got 7 out of 10. I disagree with their rulings on #4 and #7. I just plain old missed #10.

8 out of 10, man that was a tough quiz. I have umpiring experience and had to really think those through. Thanks for the link that was great fun!

I got 8 and I missed #7. I missed it because I didn't think it was up to the umpire to report the error. Which part did you disagree with?

6 out of 10 right. It was a very tough quiz.

I agree, once play resumes I don't see how you can go back and change things.

If in my judgement I felt the catcher dropped the ball on purpose I would leave the runner on second and tell the catcher not to do that again.

Six of 10 here, as well. Very tough quiz (though there were a couple of "oh...yeah...that makes sense" rulings).
I thought number 9 was a great question (and one I found remarkable that I got right). I am betting most booth announcers would go crazy with the ruling.
