More information about you

  • How did you hear about Umpire-Empire? Search Engine (Google, Yahoo, Bing, ...)
  1.   Best way to cure that is not umpire Softball.
  2. Behind the plate, counter or no?

    That what I want.  You need more strikes.
  3. Do you verbalize "Infield Fly"?

    Johnny, Why would you return the runners?
  4. checking bats

    And I will not take a head nod for a yes.  I want a verbal yes.
  5. Another Brawl

    I can't believe that there is only a $300 fine to the schools. In Alabama the 1st ejection for the year on any player or coach is $350 ( I think ) per person. If you only had 10 player on one team ejected in this situation that would be $3500. Some schools pay the fines while others hold their players and coaches accountable for paying their own fines.
  6. Why so many 1 man games?

    It seems like a lot of you guys work solo. Why? The only time I have worked solo in 12 years is once or twice I had to work an inning or two until my partner showed up. In Alabama I don't know of any baseball at any level being solo.
  7. LL Junior 1 Man Video

    :shakehead: From one Marine to another, NEVER say no balls!!!! It gives a jerk coach or fan a line we don't need to give them. I only give the count after the third and fifth pitches. I know you could have 2 strikes and a couple of fouls, but that's not the norm. If that were to happen I would just say "Oh and two" and let it go at that. On the batter HBP, Great Call of TIME!! Too many umpires say Dead Ball. I do not point the runner to first base ever, HBP or walk. If a batter is hit he usually knows what to do. I will jump out and get in between the runner and the pitcher and walk with the runner toward 1st base, just in case. Semper Fi, Loyd
  8. High School Substitutions, Lineups, etc.

    1st off let me say, I appreciate you taking the time to put this together. I'm not saying a player can't be restricted, but he can only be restricted for being an illegal sub. Visious cycle.
  9. High School Substitutions, Lineups, etc.

    Just thinking here. Pasting below from your post: How does a player get restricted? An Illegal Substitute:(2-36-3)(3.1.1c) Illegal Sub may be discovered by the umpire, the opposing team, the scorer, or a fan. An Illegal Sub is: A player who is ineligible to participate, which includes a withdrawn substitute a twice-withdrawn starter ejected or restricted players
  10. Appeals

    Part of the reason (i guess) in FED is that they are allowed to use dead ball appeals. If I have a coach try to appeal with the ball still live I will call time and ask him what he said. That way I might get an out. :notworthy:
  11. Exploring Fair / Foul

    Oh heck, let me try. 1. Foul 2. U1 How did I do? :smachhead:
  12. Interference

    If he is already out and interferes, who am I going to penalize? I'm penalizing someone!!! :notworthy:
  13. Hand to mouth

    You can ball them if you want. :shakehead:
  14. Interference

    FPSR is a situation. No slide is required.
  15. The fielder is considered to be in fair territory as long as one foot is touching the foul line.
