Check Swing, Ask for Help Mechanic

The “Check Swing – Ask for Help” mechanic is used by the Plate Umpire when a batter checks their swing and either the catcher requests that the umpire asks the Base Umpire for assistance with the call or the Plate Umpire initiates the request on their own. This mechanic has two possible outcomes. The Base Umpire could reply that the batter did or did not check their swing. This video will cover the mechanic for when the Base Umpire replies that the batter checked their swing.
