    'REAL' job

    I too have had a job change. I am now the HR Dir for a large waterpark, and I love it. The bad news is it interferes with umpiring (and running the site) as I generally work 6, 12 hr days.

    'REAL' job

    I worked at a adolescent behavioral health hospital once. That is tough work.

    Baseball Rules Myths - Busted

    Thank you all, I appreciate the comments and the ensuing discussion. A valid argument can be made for tie going to a runner ( If you fall in that category I never want to work with you, we must get outs ) However parsing the rules and as people have done IMO is more a demonstration of how the rules are poorly written and at inconsistent.
  5. @wolfe_man & @BT_Blue I've given that some thought actually and would really like to do it. I just am not sure where to start. I see all of these YouTubers getting all sorts of cool freebies to review and endorse.

    Baseball Rules Myths - Busted

    I have given thought about some vids that highlight some of the differences between NFHS & OBR. I have so many ideas and just not enough time, damn this full time job stuff

    New Umpires Section

    I've been giving it some thought and am toying with a new YouTube series to go with the Quick Tips & Good Call Blue.

    Baseball Rules Myths - Busted

    @kylehutson please be nit-picky -- I kicked that one. As for hands being part of the bat, stay tuned I've got something in the works (I hope)

    Runout or boundary

    We needed a Calvinball reference--- I don't remember the last time we had one of those.
  12. Guys, a stop watch is one of the items I recommend getting 2 of because they tend to frequently go missing. Whether its your kids (My son likes to hide from the dogs, call them and time how long it takes for them to find him) or a partner who "borrows" yours because they've lost theirs; never to be seen again.

    Intentionally Uncaught Ball vs Intentionally Dropped Ball

    I have a google docs full of plays and links, unfortuantely some of the links are no longer valid. But I save the plays as I find ones I like or find interesting. SO I can't tell you may search term.
