  1. Substituting

    do those six defensive outs need to be consecutive? I know the book used to include "consecutive outs" but I think that word was remove. That leaves a bit of wiggle room. I wish I had my 2016 book handy.
  2. So sorry to hear. You will rebound. From the spirit you convey through the forums, it's apparent to me that you are a focused and driven man. Focus that drive on the rehab and good things will happen. Maybe more evaluations of others for a while to keep your hand in officiating.

  4. Balk or No Balk

    I would tell catcher, "That looks like a double set, go tell him <brush, brush, brush>" I would prefer this to be a quick word with the head coach between innings, but by then, I may have seen it 25 times and by that time, it's is de facto allowed because I didn't call it the first 25 times.
  5. Balk or No Balk

    What's the phrasing on that warning? I'm new to FED ball and I wonder how that would go. I would love to grab a new tool for my tool box here. Thanks in advance.
  6. Magic eyeglasses

    I think that bit about using the rule book to solve problems and not create problems applies here. If this happened in one of my games, I'd look at those glasses, wonder what took them so long to think of it, and proclaim "I'm good with it, let's play ball!". R

    Leather Luster! Then spray and wipe after every game.
  12. YES HE DID!!!! Scioscia EJ

    I do not understand this point of view. I know we are speculating about what's in the managers mind but, do they think the umpire is intentionally making an incorrect call to hurt or punish the player? What professional adult would do that? Maybe I'm simple, but I'm just trying to get the call right. I don't have time to consider who the player is or remember what his batting average is or anything else. I really don't care what the count is in this case. Do I think he went? Yes? Then call the strike! Incorrect calls are part of the game. How does the manager or player tantrum help anyone involved in the game(except the broadcast network)?
