  2. FED set position--What is everyone doing?

    I had 18U same tourney type this weekend. Obvious hybrid, but it wasn’t over the top. I figured the same as a couple posters, these kids are on their way out of HS, no need to jump on everything and look for boogers. 1. Try to catch in warmups if you want to go after it. 2. I wouldn’t “ask” the coach anything. Tell him what you see and what you’re going to call. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve been told “he’s been doing that all {insert random piece of time}” I wouldn’t need to work for some of these ********. Whether or not other umpires enforce certain rules, has nothing to do with me, and the game I’m working today. And yes I’ve been blunt with that. 3. If you have problems with that approach, ask the coach if he were to protest an opponent’s illegal bat, would he accept an umpire’s answer of “well I dunno coach, he’s used it all game, can’t we just let it go?” Sorry for the soapbox.

    Thanks, I’d tend to agree. If you come asking/addressing, it may look like you’re picking for a fight. I’ve just had some partners mention things, so I thought I’d poll the audience. Thanks again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    As long as we’re on asst coaches, does anyone mention them in pre-game....i.e., “we’ll talk to you 2 only,” “your asst coaches do just that, assist you (HC) not us, etc, etc. Thanks for any insights. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Sticky situation

    Fed: 3-3-1-p. “Leave their positions or bench area during a fight or physical confrontation. PENALTY: The umpire shall eject the offender from the game.” Was it a fight...meh. Physical confrontation...yep. They didn’t come out to exchange cookie recipes. [emoji848]🧐 (The s*** of it would be if it’s gm 1 of a DH....”uh, you all were bad boys in the 1st one, but we’ll just move on to the next contest...lol ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Reebok Field Magistrate

    Recently my plate partner busted the strip of leather holding the metatarsal plate on his plate shoes. The unicorn known as Reebok’s Field Magistrate plate shoe......If anyone runs across, or wants to sell, a size 14 (possibly 13) plz let me know. Much appreciated! PS, would also be interested in Zigs possibly. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You absolutely know that’s not the situation I mean. But good try. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 0-2 purpose pitch

    You sir, should be admired among your peers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. First one this year

    Coaches don’t ask you where your zone is so they can go coach up their players....they do it to say “**** you, you said you wouldn’t call that” later in the game on anything borderline. You do what you want, but I don’t even dignify that question with an answer from a coach. (Dang, I’m feeling a little salty today...sorry ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
