  1. Stan W. added a post in a topic Game delayed this past Friday evening due to.........   

    I had a game delayed by two odd issues.........
    rattlesnake in the dugout........that one could have been ugly because it was the 2nd inning that someone decided that brown thing in the corner was a rattlesnakeCows in the outfield.......an open gate allowed some cows to meander across the outfield....thank god for country boys....took about 5 minutes for the outfielders to shoo them back into the ir field and lock the gate.....

    I wore something like that in 1982.......fresh out of college......umpiring in a summer-ball league.....Grey t-shirt that said "umpire"....Navy 2 button polyester coach shorts, adjustable mesh Elmer Fudd cap.......(all league supplied).

    I just got reminded of this the other day with the coaches of a 16U team........they reminded me that they were on a 14U team that was involved in the ugliest coach vs coach brawl I had ever seen, and my efforts to break it up..........(which I will never did again)........nowadays I'd let them wear themselves out like NHL refs do and eject once they start gasping for air..........  
    They both umpired in college in my association.......good players, good umpires, fine coaches.........

    I replaced +POS leather pads with a leather pads set from my old Honigs mask...still the best leather pads I've ever had........I have removed both sets of TW pads I had installed on my gamer and my backup.......TW just never lived up to the claims in comfort, quality and safety for me.......

    The two things said that can get me faster to an ejection is:
    Call it both waysCounting calls,,,,,,,eg: That's 2! 
    Both are calling you a cheater........I wont stand for that.

    When working with new or younger umpires, I have stepped in........where was the partner during this this tirade?.....the need for a some of rodeo clowning was evident.... ....I expect my veteran partners to handle their own business, but if  I have a newbie out there, I have and will handle the business needed at the time....in this case, Id eject that jackwagon......
