  1. Terrible Game - Illegal Pitches

    Long and short of the situation is if you have an illegal pitch, call it. i still struggle with being 100% sure in my mind, which has lead to games undoubtedly that have had more than a few illegal pitches. The games i have been sure and called it in however, there are one of two scenarios, 1) the team makes a change because they know what that pitcher is doing and had their hand caught in the proverbial cookie jar, or 2) you are just being a Pr**k and that is the first time she has been called on it all year, they keep her in and it just gets worse. The national i was at last year i found myself with a pitcher who other umpires had called on it (which i found out after), and i had called her on it in the game, she made the adjustment and i still got the excuse of her not being called on it all year. you cant win everything, but if you are sure you have an illegal pitch. call it.
