  1. Great job Tripper....the Cubs catcher didn't help you out very much though, pulling those pitches up. Makes the pitch look like its out of the zone...
  2. Called a Bad Game, How to Recover

    Lock in, keep your head in the same place every time, get deep in the slot to see the whole plate, you know where the zone is.
  3. I think it is in the bathroom. Also, can someone explain to me why when a manager gets ejected they have to come out and scream for a while? I don't get that, and it filters down to all the 'daddy' coaches who do the same thing and make life miserable for us.
  4. Right-handed pitcher move to first

    Any pitcher (right or left handed) need not step off the rubber to throw to first. I think a coach does a right handed pitcher a disservice to not teach him the proper way of using a jump turn vs stepping off the rubber to throw to first. I will be honest and tell you I am having trouble visualizing how a RH pitcher could throw to first without moving his pivot foot. Did he require an EMT after he did it?
  5. I noticed that Gardy was out there when Marty was hit and also was out there when he left the game. I had not noticed a manager do that before.
  6. That wasn't revenge. The cub player wasn't rolling around on the grass in pain holding his leg.
  7. Coach asked to be ejected

    Why didn't he just leave on his own?
  8. Fit bit or wrist band?

    Why track your heart rate?
  9. Little League (Intermediate) - Play at the Plate

    Really had to be there to see the play, but as described I think you got it right.
  10. Delayed call puts runner at disadvantage

    This is excellent advice! I actually very seldom point with my right hand, except for strikes, putting the ball in play and awarding bases.
  11. Runners advancing on throw into dugout

    Time to inspect the outfield fence!!
  12. First one this year

    Whats a 'white' hat? Coach: Where's your zone today blue? Me: Depends Coach: Depends? Me: Yes, we need to make this a fast game, I'm on my last depends.....
  13. Stealing home with a foul ball

    Think about it. The runner at first is stealing 2nd and he makes it there before the batter fouls off the ball. Does the runner stay at 2b?
  14. Question about controversial play

    I had THIS exact play once on a dropped SECOND strike. What a cluster THAT was!
  15. If the EJ was for the bat then I don't agree with it, it looks like just the standard throw the bat towards the bench. We don't know what Jr. said though.
  16. My response to "I used to umpire" is "I used to coach"....
  17. U1 in 3 Man

    The coach pitch kids love seeing 3 real umpires out there
  18. Should the run count?

    How nuts did you go?
  19. Umpire Ejected

    That's where the umpires 'phone a friend'
  20. Pithcer wearing sunglasses

    Coach, they are prescription sunglasses, are you sure you want them removed??
  21. Umpire Ejected

    That's it Rolo, I'm never working with YOU again....
  22. That's like trying to tell us that Gibby is a deep thinker....duh
  23. Sounds like the coach got what he wanted. Sometimes I feel it's better to say..."No way Bill, I'm not letting you off that easy. If I have to suffer through this game, so do YOU"
