Doing a conference game last night (backend of a DH) ...bottom of the 7th, visitors trying to hang on (2-1) bases loaded ... The leadoff hitter is now up to bat and watches pitch 1 right down the middle and fouls pitch 2 off. Ok, here it comes ...F2 (John ...good kid) sets up outside by quite a bit, confirmed, here comes the purpose pitch to get the batter to go fishing. Pitcher hits the target, but ...it's 3 to 4 balls off the plate (of course no one can tell how far out John is set up) .... "crack" ..... BALL, ...THAT'S OUTSIDE!! VISITING CROWD: OOOOooohhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! Next pitch .... 2 run double down the right field line for the walk-off OF COURSE, that's my fault! LOL .... And, of course one of the happy parents felt it necessary to see us walking to our car and yell from a 50 yard distance, "nice strike zone blue, ...brutal!" Varsity parents ....not Little League ..... Unreal, no wonder there's a shortage of officials! Walking back to the car, my partner says - "I wouldn't have given that strike in a U12 game!" We then had a good laugh
