Most ridiculous balk ever

Recommended Posts

Tonight I had the most ridiculous balk I'd ever had in my life.

F1 let's just say - thought very highly of himself. He strutted on and off the field. Gave any number of obnoxious facial expressions. When he struck out a batter he brushed off his shoulder. He's roll his eyes at my partner if he disagreed with a pitch call. Just an obnoxious prick. Through the game F1 kept blowing bubbles with his gum. 

Now we have runners on 2nd & 3rd. F1 (a righty) in the set position comes set and starts dicking around with the runners turning his head back and forth and giving them a wise-ass smile. Then while staring down R3 he starts blowing a bubble with his gum and then spits it out accidentally. The dufus then tries to catch his gum. And I come up from the C position with one of the biggest balk calls I think I'd ever done and forcibly pointed R3 home then R2 to 3rd.

Karma...

Did any thoughts of warning or EJ'ing for taunting cross your mind? I'd have been rolling it over and over...

Warren, the tough part would not be getting that balk. The tough part would be not letting everyone in the park know how much you enjoyed it

No, In my mind you have to cross the line from obnoxious to malicious.

@ElkOil, did I remember that you are/were a teacher or school administrator at one time?
