I had an incident last week at leagues that I wanted to run by everyone. I should have used the Slack TD channel, but forgot about it until after I made my ruling. I have a copy of the IFPA-PAPA Quick Reference Guide and wanted to make sure I interpreted it correctly. The game was DialedIn and the ball came to rest on top of the metal switch wire on the left in lane (the wire that registers the ball rolling down the inlane). The player attempted to give it a few whacks, but it wouldn’t come loose.
I ruled that it was considered a stuck ball based on the Guide under the “Ball stuck on playfield” and threw it in the shooter lane. Was that the correct ruling?
