  1. Best lines you've heard or used at an umpire?

    Coach: "Listen here buddy, this is 10U baseball. Every close call is an out". Partner: "I didn't have a tag coach, but I'll remember that next half inning". Another game coach: "You've got to be smoking crack!" I have no clue why, but how he said it I could barely not laugh out loud.
  2. F2 carries ball to DBT

    I never said that simply carrying a ball into DBT was a one base award, although apparently after the rule change it is.
  3. F2 carries ball to DBT

    'Catch and Carry' didn't mean there had to be a catch... just covered carrying a ball into deadball, which 97% of the time was preceded by a catch. This scenario would have been one of the other 2%.
  4. F2 carries ball to DBT

    Hey, I know OBR well. Damn well IMHO. I check FED each spring, because I know they're volatile. I don't really expect MLB to fiddle with rare umpire-level knowledge rules that aren't going to make media time. But point taken, spring will include checking the new book not just re-reading.
  5. F2 carries ball to DBT

    Damn. That's no fun. I don't really expect fundamental rules like that to change, but I guess I should browse this site more than just the offseason.
  6. F2 carries ball to DBT

    What am I missing here? This is under catch and carry, unless the catcher throws the ball or falls down, him going into the dugout doesn't mean anything. R2 is definitely being called out, but the play is still live.
  7. co-ed

    These rules are worse than LL.....
  8. Seeds

    I will in youth and travelball games consistently. I almost never will in a high school game though. Even though I don't have a problem with them professionally, I hold myself to an arbitrary 'higher' standard on the pretty diamonds.
  9. Question About Walk-off

    This whole damn thing makes my blood boil. I would burn every bridge possible and raise Hell with GHSA if I was on that game. A proper appeal upheld and the correct ruling made by rule. What am I missing here?
  10. Rules are important. (Duh.)

    I've been out of HS for a month now, what happened?
  11. Gaining Ground toward 2nd

    My own video from a recent MLB game. http://m.mlb.com/video/v1339221683/balnyy-showalter-gets-tossed-after-balk-call-in-9th/?query=balk
  12. I can't imagine any of us wouldn't call that strike if just for the laughs. Very few to none coaches would ever argue this because they are jumping on their player for being a boneheaded hotdog.
  13. New ATL stadium

    The area is actually pretty upscale, and I don't think you would feel very unsafe especially compared to Turner Field. Best parking is across the freeway.
  14. Another player gone...

    I couldn't imagine reck ball being expected to be solo if it was kid pitch. The varying conditions across the country are interesting.
