  1. Improper footwork on pitch

    This is where paying attention to warmup pitches help get you out of trouble before it starts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Aware he was BU, never said he wasn't. I actually framed it as next time he steps behind the plate this play will spark a memory and he can hopefully get this play right. 2 previous posters already answered the guys direct, actual question, so I offered further insight....you know, what forums like this are supposed to do. I guess we could just keep piling on the same answers but that won't serve anyone better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Really? I bet next time he's on the dish he may remember that play and hopefully remember some of the advice he came here for, employ it, and be a better umpire because of it. Relax bro.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I don't know you, or your partner, so this is not judgement on his ability or performance....I wasn't there to see it. But based on your description it sounds like it's a case of tunnel vision. I've worked many a game, and we all have, where some umpires are content on "seeing" one single aspect of a play/player. Many times we have to multi-task and pick up a number of actions....catches, touches, INT/OBS, multiple runners, etc. We all can always try to get better in challenging ourselves to see multiple actions and don't be afraid to come out and get more than 1 call in a play.

  5. Transaction Experience Thread

    Great transaction with Razzer for a new CP harness. Quick production & delivery! And like the customization. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. What to look for here?

    Anyone wanna make this call sliding over from 'C' into the working area? [emoji15][emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Coach demands Ref be removed... and she is.

    Lol, let me clarify: "I don't know where to start" with the absolute lunacy of this fool and situation. Too many comments to rip apart this abuse of tourney mgmt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    OMG, I don't even know where to start.... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. This might take a while to get ready...

    scrounge, you @ ODU today? That might be an all time worst. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Stalling

    Or, if you can't umpire 6 in under 2 hrs (most tourney time limits) it's prob your fault anyway and deserve any hardships ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. WTB a Quality Indicator

    Hopefully you find one. I use Diamond and they make a great plastic one. No clue why their metal on has strikes on top when the plastic version has balls on top. Stupid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. LL vs. Fed vs. OBR

    +NCAA also, if anyone can. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. 3rd New One on me

    I cannot say that I do... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. FED: 4 Batters HBP

    Nope, the rule is 5...[emoji12][emoji24] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. 3rd New One on me

    I notice the shirt logo...what part of the Buckeye State do you hail from? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Alan Porter - Daniel Murphy exchange

    Porter mouthed early in the video "I'm not going that far...". The announcers are wrong, as my guess is he moved some just not as far as Murphy wanted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Great! Thank you for the quick response! I'll be registering soon and look forward to attending. Thanks again.
  20. Do you still have open spots in the 9/7-9/10 clinic? Thanks!
  21. In my experiences when I hear the phrase "he's calling strikes over their heads" & "it's half way through the batters box" they are almost always over-exaggerations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. HBP Criteria

    Would this be a HBP for you: Inside fastball, batter doesn't move, drilled in the ribs. Award 1st? He "permitted" it to hit him as he didn't attempt to get out of the way, but he also didn't actively do anything to get into the path, as you state above for clarifying "permit." Thanks for the replies! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. HBP Criteria

    One "test" our assoc. uses is did the ball hit the batter, or did the batter hit the ball? We've had spirited discussion at the local level....I'm not a fan of "has to try and get out of the way." And agreed with ElkOil, NFHS verbiage isn't the most helpful. It would be great if they just decided and said "has to make an effort" if that's what they want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Wow, the more I read this thread over and over, do I realize how f****d up this question is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. HBP - hands/knob

    I'll prob lean more toward calling time as well, take 2 more seconds to eval *reactions*, then make the call. I don't know if I'm a fan of a "take your glove off and let's check if it's red" kinda deal----are we going with shoe polish on ball for HBP....checking the field/dirt for cleat marks on missed bags...etc. And if he does this, good job kid: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
