    You Get An EJ! And You Get An EJ!...

    If they are allowed to hang around when they act like you describe, they will never understand coaching decorum. Either this is not true or the story you have related is not.

Second go round for me. This time I am sure that I will not be as edgy as I was last time. Can't wait for the match. It is a real joy having the best seat in the house to watch two really talented teams go at it. I will try to not suck. But, as I say to SWMBO, I can't make any promises

    Volleyball State Finals

    None! Not my job. My partner called three. I had two ball handling calls. One was so obvious every grandma in the stands knew it and the other was a double contact on a set. The athletes decided the outcome. I was more like a symphony conductor, waving my arms while the talent entertained the spectators.

    2019 Changes

    https://www.ncaa.com/news/baseball/article/2018-08-16/college-baseball-video-review-challenge-system-approved It seemed as though it would only be a matter of time before the IBB and no fake to third would be implemented. The changes on pitchers' positioning is going to be problematic unless there is a universal effort to enforce the new standards. The HBP and runners staying at their bases changes are the most interesting to me. I wonder what the penalty will be for runners leaving their bases during a defensive conference.

    Action photo of the match. Two evenly matched teams. Came down to the team in blue playing a great defense that kept their opponent from playing the power game they had played all year. And I didn't suck!

    Batter runs to first on dropped second strike

    When this happens, please post the video. I will enjoy watching the OHC come unglued, being ejected and the PU grabbing the stankiest end of any stick ever.

    You Make The Call

    Note F2's non-compliant helmet.

    Angle vs Distance

    Because he was tracking a breaking ball that was falling below the zone, which took his eyes off the swing of the bat. That is different than being too close to make the correct call.

    @Richvee I think this is when it happened right?

    Batters helmet

    Next season I would venture that we will be dealing with the Stanton shield. I saw a lot of them on other than HS teams. FED 1.5.2 . A face mask/guard may be attached to batting helmets at the time of manufacture. All face mask/guards shall meet the NOCSAE standard at the time of manufacture. A face mask/guard specifically designed for a particular helmet model may be attached after manufacture, provided that procedure is approved by the manufacturer and meets the NOCSAE standard at the time of manufacture. Are they approved by the manufacturer?

    Trying out for College

    Don't suck? And I would suggest making some phone calls to those who matter prior to just showing up at a tryout. Letting someone know who you are and perhaps having others who will vouch for your abilities on and off the field will be very beneficial to your prospects rather than just walking in off the street.
  20. Even more so if BR was not on the bag and an out was negated.

    Following a ball that comes off the bat straight, or nearly straight, up and back. Occasionally when I do this, my throat guard gets caught on my chest protector when I lower my chin after I realize there is no play on the ball.

    Force Play

    I might go with "The ball beat him" or "The throw didn't beat him."
