New Golf Program for Spring!
posted 04/02/2014
 

WHERE: Paint Branch Golf Complex and Golf Performance Center
WHEN: Begins in April (6 week program). This program has several levels and will progress through the year. Interested youths can continue the program and develop their skills through high school.

Two classes to chose from:

WEDNESDAYS:  April 23rd - May 28th, 6 pm. (six weeks in a row)
SUNDAYS:  April 27th - June 1st, 2 pm (six weeks in a row)
 


NOTE: After you click on the Register Now Button, be sure to choose VIEW Boys and Girls Golf Club. This will take you to registration for either session.


Boys and Girls GOLF CLUB was designed to give youth, ages 7-17, an ongoing program that will help them develop their golf game and progress as a competitive athlete through a series of skill levels. Understanding the rules and etiquette of golf can be beneficial to their overall development by instilling a sense of value and pride.

Taught in a club atmosphere, the emphasis is to provide a safe place to learn, play and be healthy. Junior golfers learn that advancing their golf skills is a fun and exciting way to keep active in a social environment. 

Our mission is to provide an outlet for youth to learn and grow with the game of golf over a period of time by focusing on age-appropriate skills that progressively gets more specialized as the athlete progresses. These levels are based on the Titleist Performance Institutes Junior Golf Curriculum.

The ultimate goal is to develop and guide college-bound golfers towards opportunities for golf scholarships offered by outside organizations.

Growing up with the game of golf can lead to a lifetime of fulfillment both on and off the course.

Babe Ruth Rule Clarification
posted 06/20/2012
 

 

Babe Ruth Rule Clarification

Since the Babe Ruth rule books were not given to all coaches there is evidently some confusion about what happens if the 60’ base running rule is violated – the base runner leaving before the pitch reaches the plate – so we are providing the Babe Ruth rule, word by word, that is covered on page 12 of the 2012 Babe Ruth Rule Book:

 

Rule:  When a pitcher is in contact with the pitcher’s plate and in possession of the ball and the catcher is in the catcher’s box ready to receive delivery of the ball, base runners shall not leave their bases until the ball has been delivered and has reached home plate. Once the catcher has secured the ball and the runner has stopped his forward progress, the runner must immediately return to the base.

 

The violation by one runner shall affect all other runners.

 

a.    When a base runner leaves the base before the pitched ball has reached home plate and the batter does not hit the ball, the runner is permitted to continue. If a play is made on the runner and the runner is out, the out stands. If said runner reaches safely the base to which is he advancing, all runners must be returned to the base occupied before the pitch was made, and no our results.

b.    When a base runner leaves the base before the pitched ball has reached home plate and the batter hits the ball, the base runner or runners are permitted to continue. If a play is made and the runner or runners are put out, the out or outs will stand. If not put out, the runner or runners must return to the original base or bases or to the unoccupied base nearest the one left. In no event shall the batter advance beyond first base on a single or error, second base on a double or third base on a triple. The umpire-in-chief shall determine the base value of the hit ball.

c.     When any base runner leaves the base before the pitched ball has reached home plate and the batter bunts or hits a ball within the infield, no run shall be allowed to score. If three runners were on the bases and the batter reaches first base safely, each runner shall advance to the base beyond the one they occupied at the start of the play except the runner who occupied third base, which runner shall be removed from the base without a run  being scored. NOTE: See exception following this rule.

 

NOTE: When there is a base running violation, the umpire should signal such infraction by indicating a delayed dead ball. EXCEPTION: If at the conclusion of the play there is an open base, paragraphs (a) and (b) will apply.
