  1. Walkoff HBP

    I have never, and never will, bring celery onto a field
  2. Ebay finds

    How about this one? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Macgregor-Mask-Catcher-Umpire-Baseball-Vintage-Face-Guard-Padded-Throat-B-24-VTG/282857144642?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D47301%26meid%3D529f53c323874af08faa0079fce769a9%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D231516886710%26itm%3D282857144642&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850
  3. Interesting Play

    I got time...I got nada, "don't do that again"
  4. Non-Ejections: 2 Examples

    You really don't have to answer these types of questions. Hand the coaches the card and leave.
  5. Totally Confused

    Little League Big league game, I ask the catcher, 'got your cup?'....he answers....'OH right....(yells to the bench)...Who has THE cup??"
  6. FPSR video

    I believe FED would want this called interference. IF you slide, it must be a legal slide. If you don't slide you have to still avoid contact. Going in standing up doesn't relieve the runner of the responsibility to avoid contact.
  7. Totally Confused

    Be sure to wear your cup !!
  8. My Place To EJ?

    "If I gotta stay out here in this heat, you sure as hell are too"
  9. Any update for brd

    Now I am sad! Missing you Papa C.
  10. BI followed by HC EJ

    This guy sounds like a prick. Someone says something like this to me, I would be in his grill lickity split. We owe it to our self and all our brothers who have to deal with this dickwad to stop this type of crap ASAP. He would have known exactly what I thought of his comedy show. Just remember to do it quietly, outside of earshot of anyone else, and don't make a big deal about it...just get it done.
  11. Catcher not in control of mask

    I once had a catcher who flung his mask before throwing the ball back to the pitcher, and that got old fast. Had a conversation with the coach about that, and it stopped.
  12. My Place To EJ?

    I am not sure why, but I know of umpires who won't EJ a coach who charges them. This mystifies me. If someone charges me from a coaching box or the dugout, they are gone, period end of story. I also do not take kindly to being yelled at from across the field or from the dugout.
  13. My Place To EJ?

    Agreed. And unless the word "YOU" is followed by something like... "are the best umpire I have ever seen".....most YOU statements lead to an EJ. Complaining about a call is just an opinion, everyone has one.
