    Unsportsmanlike Conduct Ejection

    Had the same coach last night. Not a word from him. It was a peaceful night.
  5. Using Little League rules During a local 9-12 league playoff game the defensive team made 3 or 4 errors in a row that allowed the other team score a few runs. Of course one of the defensive teams coaches started to talk to his team. He was starting to a little loud. Then the coach starts to degrade (calling them idiots) the players that were out on the field. At that point I told him enough. He proceeded to tell me that he was not talking to me. As soon as he said that I heard the manager of the team tell him to stop. But would he? Nope. So I ejected him. The coach then asked me why I tossed him and I proceeded to tell him that it was for unsportsmanlike conduct. Would any of you have given the manager a chance to calm the coach down before tossing the coach?

    Play continued after third out

    Would the extra pitches that were thrown go against the pitchers pitch count?

    Orioles Triple Play vs. Red Sox

    wouldn't it be kind of hard to call the IFF with the fielders back to the infield. to me that's not ordinary effort

    How ?

    I use the HSM as well. During a game last summer I had to switch to the conventional mask and felt naked.

    Volunteer LL umpires

    I to umpire because I enjoy the game. Even though I don't get paid with money in LL I do get paid by seeing the enjoyment that the players have for the game. Seeing each player grow, especially a 9 year old who couldn't catch a cold a the beginning of the year catch the final out of a playoff game to put their team in the league final. Most of all just seeing the kids grow.
