Varsity HS game and 2 man system- ground ball, F3 is pulled off the bag several feet on the throw, BU bangs him out because he didn’t adjust for the offline throw. I’m the PU and straddling the first base line about 20’ up from the plate and see what happened. Head coach for offense is asking for time and goes to my partner. Partner comes in, we meet, and tells me he had the guy on the base and doesn’t ask for my help. I ask him if he wants to know what I saw and he says no, runner is out. I said okie doke and start back toward home. HC is pissed (as am I) so I give him a little extra rope. He is pissed at me because it looks like we got together to go over the play, and I missed him getting pulled 4-5’ off the bag or wasn’t paying attention. We have a quick, firm discussion, and I allow him to quietly vent while I don’t dime out my partner for refusing my help. I keep him in the game and we move on.
First off, I will pregame this with my partners from this point forward. My question is should I have immediately overruled him since I clearly saw it or did I do the right thing waiting for us to meet, or should I have initiated a meeting with my partner before the coach had a chance to call time?
