Baseball’s Tag up Rule

Having gained investment analysis experience with Sunflower Capital Partners and Atlantic Trust, among other firms, Scott Bushley now serves as a partner responsible for finance and business operations with Granite Point Capital in Boston. Residing in the nearby community of Cohasset, Scott Bushley is the coordinator for Cohasset Major League and a volunteer baseball coach.

In baseball, the batter doesn’t have to record a hit in order to drive in a run. Runs can be generated via baseball’s tag-up rule that allows players on base to advance, provided they wait until after the ball has been caught. If a player leaves the base once the ball is struck, he or she will have to return to the base before making an attempt to advance to the next base.

For instance, a player on third base can score a run for his or her team by tagging up and advancing on a fly ball if there are less than two outs. In order to improve the chances of crossing home plate safely, the player should return to third base once the ball has been hit and determine, with assistance from the third-base coach, if it was hit deep enough to advance to home plate. Once the ball comes into contact with the outfielder’s glove, the runner should push off third base and sprint home to beat the relay throw.

Formerly overseeing global distribution strategy at BNY Mellon Investment Management, Scott Bushley became a partner and head of finance and business operations at Granite Point Capital in 2018. Beyond his professional endeavors, Scott Bushley is a member of the Board of Directors of the Cohasset Youth Baseball and Softball Association (CYBSA).

In order to promote and protect positive values of fair play, teamwork, and sportsmanship, the CYBSA maintains a code of conduct that guides coach interactions with players, opposing coaches, umpires, and even parents and fans. When interacting with players, coaches are prohibited from yelling or using laudatory language. Coaches can discipline players by restricting them to the dugout or dismissing them from games or practice. Players can even be removed from a team if warranted and with approval from the CYBSA Board of Directors.

Yelling from the dugout at opposing coaches is also prohibited. Coaches should only address each other between innings and in the presence of the umpire. Moreover, they should only address umpires in a respectful manner between innings and with their permission. Finally, coaches should ignore comments from parents or fans during the game and use appropriate language when speaking with them following the game.

As a partner of Granite Point Capital, Scott Bushley provides counsel to the hedge fund’s managing partner on all operational matters, including human resources, IT, and office infrastructure. In addition to more than 20 years of relevant experience to support his efforts in this regard, Scott Bushley holds an MBA from Boston College’s Carroll School of Management (CSOM).

In March, U.S. News & World Report released its Best Graduate Schools list, where CSOM’s part-time and full-time MBA programs ranked 28th and 43rd, respectively. It was the second consecutive year that CSOM’s part-time program was ranked among the top 30, while its full-time program jumped five spots from last year’s rankings. Moreover, CSOM’s MBA programs in finance and marketing ranked 23rd and 25th in the nation, respectively, while its MBA program in accounting jumped four spots to No. 31.

A total of 475 schools offering MBA programs were surveyed. Rankings were based on a methodology involving factors such as job placement rates, starting salaries, average undergraduate GPAs, and peer assessments.

CSOM’s part-time MBA program, in particular, has performed well in numerous surveys. Just two years ago, U.S. News & World Report ranked it as the 46th best part-time program in the country. Its ascent can be attributed to its 2016 strategic plan, which emphasized making graduate programs at Boston College more competitive with a substantial curricular overhaul.
