I'm unclear on this: Did the runner actually go 5 to 6 feet away from the path he was running on to avoid the tag? He is allowed 3 feet (one full yard) from his position when the tag is applied, so how did he get 5 or 6 feet from the tag without running away from the fielder? I am having trouble picturing this. If he was truly 5 or 6 feet from the point the tag was attempted, wouldn't it have been obvious that he was too far from the tag?
Had a 11-12u game last friday night. I have the plate. apes@@@t. BU gets in discussion with him. BU made call, didn't ask for help. Coach didn't ask him to ask for help. Should I have went down and had discussion with BU and tell him what I saw. He made call and didn't ask what I saw, so I didn't want to over step him. This is where coach should have been dumped. In between innings, BU is walking accross field. Head coach get a clipboard and tells BU, clipboard is a foot blue. He then proceeds to start measuring out three feet with clipboard. BU tells him that is enough. BU walks over, I tell him he should have dumped him as soon as he put the clipboard on the ground. Should I have done anything different

Ask him if you can see the clipboard for a second, as if your interested. Then, once you have it, calmly take out your pen and write your gone on it and hand it back to him.
I like it but I recommend "you're"
