    The ole stee-ball in the top of the 10th in the Spain/Canada game. PU got a little bit ahead of himself and started to call a two strike curve ball a strike, came up, and balled it. Oops. Otherwise, I think he is having a good game, despite getting peppered with about 7 or 8 balls off the bat, missed pitches, balls that bounced.
  3. HP Umpire Cory Blaser ejected Brewers Manager Craig Counsell (warnings) in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Brewers-Cardinals game. With two out and none on, Cardinals batter Tyler O'Neill took a first-pitch fastball from Brewers pitcher Wade Miley inside for a called first ball, resulting in... [[ This is a content summary only.

    No. It was just EVERY foul ball. Seemed he couldn't throw a new ball to F1 without ripping off the mask. However, as stated, a real solid plate job.

Friday's Replay Review that upheld umpires' home run and fan interference no-call in San Diego upset Arizona after video conclusively indicated that Diamondbacks left fielder Jon Jay's glove made contact with a Padres fan's beer during Eric Hosmer's solo-HR in the bottom of the 5th inning.

    I missed it. Something about taking care of a 3 day old that SWMBO required me to do. Lol So... did he take the mask and throw it on the ground ala a F2?

    American Legion Umpires

    Just turned on the American Legion World Series and the umpires are decked out in Puma polo shirts. Sharp looking shirts.
  9. Don't worry Gil, already saw this. Notice, although it is an easy technique to learn, some need to be retrained, and this one should get fined by the kangaroo court for messing up. I should have used better wording, in that the goal of all players in all situations, not necessarily only this one as the one and only, is to be fully turned and not get caught on camera looking back. And of course Hoye, being Johnny on the spot, was great
  10. The trigger was slow...until it mattered, when Hoye was lighting quick such that the player was still facing the umpire at the time of ejection. Every other D'Back on the field was walking away with backs turned -- except for the ejected individual.

  13. The players do this intentionally to take the heat off themselves, and get the exact responses that are being given about ejections when they are walking away. It is a strategy that works quite well in the court of public opinion as you continue to see. That last cheap-shot as they turn, which is intentionally designed and premeditated to get in that last personal expletive or whatever. This makes the PU to come off as the big bad umpire, who is picking on a defenseless player. The player isn't saying anything, and has his back turned by the time the heave ho ejection signal is given. It's like the player code of showing umpires up, to do this. It takes very little practice to learn this technique.

  15. Idiot announcers..."he was walking away with his back to the umpire..." what a crock! He turned and said one more thing.

    No,....he did do a great job....it was just the mask flipping[emoji6] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  19. So, with R2 a pitcher looking in for the sign drops the ball: BALK. Pitcher turns and steps toward 2B and aborts his throw seeing no one covering and ball slips out due to the aborted throw. NOT a BALK.

    He did Troy, @maineump was better on Thursday, he Had to contend with an international game and language issues as well. So far, from my perspective, the only issue I’ve seen is the zone is called very wide with some guys.

    Friday's games were the first I saw this year, but he was indeed one of the best I've seen including the regionals..

With none out and two on (R2, R3), Ahmed took a 2-2 sinker from Padres pitcher Joey Lucchesi for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was... [[ This is a content summary only.

    Guy did a really good job. Probably the best plate job I've seen at a LLWS.

    Tell you what? There are so many people who complain about how bad the umpiring is and rightfully so at times. Well, let's give some huge props for the game umpired tonight between Hawaii and Georgia. A great game and umpired really well, especially the home plate umpire. Way to represent boys. 11 innings with a walk off HR in the bottom of the inning with one out. Fantastic.

    I don't like to nit pic..This guy's doing a nice job. But the mask thing and bellowing out "FOUL" on the balls straight back are wearing on me.

    Is it a requirement to take off your mask every time there's a foul ball? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
