  1. Jim, I think what Ken is doing is simply preventative umpiring, pure and simple.
  2. Black/gray/white digital, urban camo would be sweet!
  3. I 100% agree with what KenBAZ said. Great game management.
  4. +1000! There's enough trouble out there, we don't need to find this one. IMHO.
  5. I completely disagree with "ignore everyone else." Your manager or head coach is responsible for "everyone else", hold them to controlling their dugouts and personnel.
  6. On a different but similar note, I've been accused of killing the grass and asked to move around a little when umpiring
  7. Yeah, I'm probably not going to critique an umpire in the CWS.... Just saying...
  8. Thanks for posting that lawump, great story.
  9. Vol, As the Crew Chief, you can't intercede unless asked or the discussion with the HC gets prolonged or heated. You don't even really know what your partner called or what he based the call on. How can you intercede?
  10. Way, way too narrow.
  11. It's like arguing with a softball guy[emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Dang pal, you asked for a baseball perspective , you got what you asked for....Geez Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You ask for a baseball perspective. You're given a baseball perspective(s). Then, you argue with the baseball perspective(s). What exactly are you looking for?
  14. Ask them what they are appealing. Rule on the appeal.
