Does softball have those double lines going down to 1st between which the batter is supposed to run?  If so, was she between the lines?

No double lines. Called the batter out. Said the fielder has to have an unfettered attempt to catch the ball.

I’m not going to swear it was the right call but it may have been. There is a MLB rule that says the fielder has the “right of way” to catch the ball.

Texted a friend who played baseball through college and he said it was the right call, fwiw.

I was thinking that baseball and softball might have different interpretations of the rule if softball doesn't have the second line outside the home-to-first baseline.

I assessed that the White Sox, my team, had a legit chance at the AL Pennant this season, because they now have so many power hitters, and some hitters that hit for average. The hitting department has been so sorely lacking for years. Their season started slow (so did everyone's), but i.e. the W-L record was a slow start.  Now the Sox are above .500.
Pitching is a big question, and pitching wins the play-off games, and the World Series.

As someone who has lived through the international tiebreaker rule a couple of times I think it works the opposite of the OT rule in college football. I think it is more advantageous to hit first and play defense second.

I’d rather go into the bottom of the inning knowing how many runs I can give up as opposed to knowing how many I need to score.

Red Sox pitching a disaster, worst in baseball so far. Blew it to the Yankees last night. 3-7 W/L and last in the AL East.

Sale and Rodriguez gone for the year, Price given away.

Depends.

If you can shut out the team in the top, I like knowing you can go sac bunt-sac fly-win.

If you do that in the top, you are basically punting any chance at scoring 2, so you need to know you don't need 2.

DYERSVILLE — The Field of Dreams game between the Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals will been canceled, according to MLB reporter Ken Rosenthal.

Rosenthal tweeted Monday the game, that was intended to be play near the original movie site on August 13th, was canceled due to a logistical problem.

He says it is not believed to be tied to a recent string of positive coronavirus tests on the Cardinals.
