    Good No Call or INT Missed?

    Good no call. Leave it alone. There's nothing there. That being said...had he attempted to make another play, I think he would've gotten the call.

    I locked the "Ask the Umpire" Tracking thread so we can continue the discussion here.

    Duplicate thread. See "Mechanics" to continue the discussion.

    Dead ball?

    Oh for sure. But I see 'over the top' mechanics to make sure they hear four counties over that we have time. It's just not necessary to be that obnoxious. Absolutely, send them back. No advancements or outs. Hopefully the umpire has the sense to make sure play has relaxed before turning around.

    I thought the exact same thing yesterday. He asked it in two places.

    Dead ball?

    It generally is not and yes they can. They can also be thrown out. No bush league business though.

    If you are working 12U, look for strikes. The kids need to learn to swing the bat. If it's a hittable pitch, call it. Hitters will adjust or not. As for the groans, eff em. As you describe it, letters are a strike, esp in 12U. Call strikes, you'll start to see your games flow better. Good luck.

    Cost of Umpire Camps

    Right around $100 day plus beer money is pretty fair.

  11. Esp on the wrestlebacks. It was so un-fun I didn't work any legion playoffs the last few years. It was actually fun again this year.
  12. Going back to 7s, may have saved legion baseball.
  13. Just double checking....the only runner that matters on a walk off balk is R3? Is that right?
