    I figured that is what you meant but I was wondering if you were thinking to possibly do something differently Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Hey all, Does anyone have a CCA manual that they'd be willing to part with? I'd prefer it be from within the past couple of years. Pm with what you want for it. Thanks!
  12. runner's lane interference

    I agree with the call. If the throw is to the inside they'd get the call but with the first baseman setup inside and a bad throw to the outside I don't have interference.
  13. Shaking my Head

    It's done one of two ways (depending on the age and league level). One way is that each batter has five pitches and can swing at them all but the fifth must be put into play. The second, used for "higher level" divisions, gives each batter six pitches and they can strikeout (the sixth pitch must be put into play). The MP games allow young umpires to learn a lot about game management, but they also scare away many young umpires because the coaches are extreme in some (too many) cases.
  14. Shaking my Head

    Was covering for a pair of machine pitch games yesterday (keep in mind these kids are 7) and had this play that led to two ejections. Dribbler hit in front of the plate, pitcher goes to throw to the inside of first and the first basemen is run into my the batter-runner, easy RLI call and I get the out. As soon as I call interference, the VTHC (running the machine) is yelling coming towards me as well as each of the base coaches. I send the base coaches back to their boxes and give a brief explanation to the head coach. I jog back behind the plate when am assistant walks out of the dugout arguing, I give him a stop sign and he walks right through it and gets his place in the parking lot. He resists leaving the field until I tell him he has 15 seconds before they forfeit. At this point, the head coach is at home plate again questioning me. I tell him, "coach, I don't want to eject you too, let's go back to the machine and play baseball. " At this point he gets halfway back to the machine, and turns around to argue again and secures his spot in the parking lot. Coaches' behavior in low level baseball can be ridiculous at times.
  15. When is too late?

    I'd been telling him every half inning to make sure he isn't getting too close.
