  1. I agree with you on this. Hard to do a 6 man in such small dimensions and not run into a situation like this. I just was referring to multiple media outlets that can visibly see a multi million dollar contract on a national network and those that are put under the most radar on this program are unpaid for their services.
  2. Wow Even USA Today can beat the dead horse of Volunteer umpires at LLWS. You would think ESPN would try and do something to make their program more watchable in this sense, instead of hearing Karl Ravich bite his tongue year after year while he makes his company "these are volunteer umpires who paid there way to be here" speech.

    YOU make the call.

    Was the manager on the dugout step or on the bench?

    Attempt to go to 2nd

    1. Never read in any rule book that a runner is safe in foul territory...except on a batted ball hitting him

    Isn't this just a reverse rotation?

    Hello from PA

    It's an Adult wood bat league. fairly competitive. It's a mix of college guys, guys recently out of college, and guys that still think they are in college(beer muscles).

    Hello from PA

    If you ever hang up coaching, there are TONS of tournaments/leagues in your area that will keep you busy. If you feel like you are getting in a good groove at some point, I know they are always looking for umpires in the Daily News League, 26 and older league, and NABA, and a lot of them play in south hills and Washington.

    Catch/no catch in regional

    Had this one in our area this year in D3. Fly ball to center field. CF running to the wall makes the catch and his momentum takes him into the wall and he tries to show boat and do a "BO Jackson run up the wall". when he comes back down field umpire looks for the ball and CF doesn't have it.....he dropped it over the wall.....

    Rules Survey

    I agree with keeping DH to 2 7's. Especially in the D2-3 Levels. We have a conference playing 2 9's in D3

    High School Playoffs

    I had a check swing appeal on the first batter of the game, and after that I just ran around and rotated. I appreciated the workout.

    Little League leaving early

    Thank you.. From what my coworker said, The umpire saw the basehit, killed it and put runner back on second and replayed the down.....kicked it!

    Little League leaving early

    Thank you. What would the mechanic and placement of runners in a base hit situation?

    Little League leaving early

    I do not do LL rules and have a LL coach that I work with that had a situation last night where a runner on second base left early on a base hit. Is a runner leaving early a delayed dead ball or immediate?

    Balls/Strikes: How much do you tolerate

    I know they are two different sports, but I do know a lot of guys who do both baseball and basketball. Do refs in basketball have the same conversations about T'ing up coaches?
