  1. An out is an out I guess

    It was a lower level u15 game. Bad catch all the way.
  2. An out is an out I guess

    No outs, R1. Batter hits a high pop to F6 who gets nice an camped under the ball. R1 as per usual is standing on first and BR has stopped and started to turn back about 2/3 the way up the line. Ball hits in F6 glove and as he starts to bring his glove down promptly drops the ball, not even close to an on the transfer drop. I immediately signal and call out "No catch", but it seems everyone and their sister (minus my partner) have all but ignored me. F6 picks up the ball and tosses it to F1, R1 still standing on first, BR still walking back down the line towards home/his dugout and the on deck batter is starting to walk up to the box. BR crosses back over the plate on his way to his dugout and I call him out (just a quiet raised hammer fist so as not to draw much attention). Sometimes I am still amazed at this game.
  3. 1st HS ejection

    While I think the EJ was fine enough on it's own right as was suggested earlier that perhaps some better game management techniques may have totally avoided the situation that led to the EJ, Glad to hear there was a suspension and a fine, no contact is ever ok for any reason and when I say no contact i mean none, not even incidental. Reverse the roles and what would have happened to you?
  4. Gentlemen’s agreements

    How I like to approach these "agreements" ,"Gentlemen, we are playing baseball here correct? Good we agree, OBR, now let's play"
  5. May have a broken arm

    I've seen it done,she worked bases and lower level (14U and below) only. Personally I think it's a tad risky, but to each their own if you can still perform the job.
  6. Second game first ejection

    It never ceases to amaze how easy some coaches make it.
  7. 2016 UE Umpires at CDP

    Week 6
  8. Easy one

    To be honest, ejections just don't come any easier than this.
  9. Don't be THAT guy

    Bringing a rule book onto the field for a coach is no different that a batter drawing a line in the dirt. They are showing everyone that you are wrong and here is how. Coming out onto the field and quoting a rule and having a discussion that way is something else entirely, and yes, if in the course of the discussion the coach feels the rule is not being interpreted correctly they may protest. It's all about the approach and the respect.
  10. Facebook discussion: 1 or 2 ball bags

    I like 2, I think it looks more balanced plus on the practical side I keep the balls in the right bag, my brush and indicator (when not using it) in the left. I will also put any "questionable" balls (seem coming out, flat spots, cut in the ball etc) I have on the left and only use them when i run out of the good balls.
  11. nope, never a runner on third. off the hip I had a runner on 1, runner went to 2, one off the helmet runner on 2 didn't go anywhere because it was more of a glancing blow off the helmet that still more or less went to the pitching mound. Otherwise no runners
  12. Props on the crew not getting all caught up in the emotion of it all. This is what makes them professionals
  13. I've seen it off the bat, off the helmet a couple timesand even off a batters hip once
  14. True that but as tjwoelfel13 said the baseball gods will always come up with something weirder
  15. Not really all that crazy, I do enough minor ball to see that crap all the time....lol What was crazy was the classless display by Toronto fans..
