Law 5.4 states that the VAR uses replay(s), so there is no limitation in what sort of replays are being used. Usually all with a proper perspective on the scene. The assistance from the video assistant referee (VAR) will relate to using replay(s) of the incident. When you watch the live footage of the VAR or referee in the review area you can clearly ...

It was not a force-out at first base because that only happens when a runner is required to go to that base (but it would have been possible to advance to second while the other advances to third, although it probably wouldn't be a good idea). If the runner could manage to reach first base without being tagged (which is possible although unlikely), he would ...

No. A red card means that the player is out for the rest of the game. In youth football timed suspensions are possible (at least here they are), but they replace the 2nd yellow card and another yellow card after that suspension is no longer possible. Any offense that would lead to one results in a direct red card. However, there were situations in the past ...

This would not be ruled a force out but would be scored as a put out much like if the outfielder had thrown it to third to tag an advancing runner there. I'd assume the batter would be given a single since it was hit to the outfield. If the official scorer viewed there could have reasonably been an out made at first, it would be ruled a fielder's choice.

Law 1.2 requires that the players of each team be provided in writing to the umpires before the toss, and thereafter not changed without the agreement of the opposing captain. Law 40 requires that the next batsman be ready on the field within three (3) minutes of a dismissal, unless Time is called. If the three minutes elapse without the batsman being ready,...

After than (starting with the first team), each team's player whose turn it is to serve next, serves alternately for two consecutive points until the end of the tie-break. ...

No - Being passed by an opponent is not an offside offence. Law 11 Offside. ... A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball (except from a deliberate save by any opponent) is not considered to have gained an advantage (hence not being offside). IFAB (FIFA) - Laws of the game 2018/19 (Page 97)

So, this is an interesting question that I had never really considered before. Anecdotally, from several years in various pool leagues, I can see that I've never seen anything enforced besides that the ball must be "placed" behind the head string, meaning the point of contact between ball and table is behind the head string. The rest of the ball may surpass ...

The runner would be awarded home plate on the overthrow, however, the runner would be out on appeal (if the fielding team appeals) for missing second base. The runner could return and touch second base on the dead ball before touching 3rd and home, in order. But once the runner touches 3rd base, if they missed 2nd then they would be out on appeal. If the ...

In addition to the other answers, I would like to add that a full safety car does have a few benefits when compared with a VSC, and this is one of the main factors in determining when this should be deployed. The benefits of a full safety car include; The field all form into a "crocodile", so this leaves a large time window each lap where there will be no ...
