    Hockey Thoughts

    Typically, at the Junior, College, and Pro (AHL/NHL) levels. You're either a Linesman or a Referee. I know in the past when there was only one referee in the NHL, he would travel alone while the linesman traveled together for a few games then hooked up with another linesman a few games later. Not sure how they do it today with 2 and 2. But, to answer your question, no. They do not switch up.

    NB Plate Shoes & Odds and Ends

    I think we all know who Bob is. Great pic!
  4. Looking to find a replacement pair of plate shoes. I love the Reeboks I have now, but need to replace them soon. I've tried everywhere and can't find them in 7.5. I know they don't make them anymore and NB doesn't make plate shoes smaller than 8...ugh...

    WS crew..

    I’m suspecting that would mean he’s headed to the Replay Room. Meals had the same assignment when he worked his plate job in Game 1 WS

    MLB Situation

    Being a Detroit Metropolitan area resident, I was watching the game and have seen the play you're talking about. Your question, "... if the batter had not been injured on the play, that he would have been allowed to re-enter the game to finish his at-bat?" If the batter had not been injured, and based on the original call of HBP, he would have been awarded first base as happened in this particular situation. And, as a result of the review...reversing an HBP to a foul ball, he would have been called back to the plate to finish his AB. There would be no need for a substitution if the batter wasn't injured.

    Balk call extends MiLB playoff game

    Mr. Turgeon should bone-up on the rules. The ball isn't dead on a balk under OBR, which I assume is the rules code this league plays under.

    Strike 3 Mechanic

    Good for him. I take my avocation of umpiring the game I've loved since I've been 4 years old a lot more seriously than this. A whole lot! The game, and the profession of umpiring, deserves respect. I would, respectfully, decline any assignment I would be given with Mr. Reed. Of course, that would never come to opportunity, but I think you catch my drift...

    Two Umpires Make Opposite Call

    The rotation with R1 (or R1 and R3) is PU takes the play on R1 if he commits to 3B on a clean batted ball that leaves the infield. BU abandons R1 once he commits to 3B and picks up the BR for a play at 2B or 1B. UMPIRING 101...this should have been part of their pre-game discussion.
