Things that make you go Hmmmmm..... "Time"

Recommended Posts

Why in a game with no clock.... does the umpire call "Time"

 

and then.... "Play"

 

tounge in cheek, however, if there's a real answer I'm curious

It's like playing tag when we were kids. Game time was suspended when calling for time out, and then we could play again when everyone was ready. It sounds better in baseball to call "time" and "play" as opposed to hollering, "T. O.!" like we used to do.

Because when the ball is dead, you can't put someone out/advance. It signifies when the ball is dead and when it is live.

Yes, ok, but why not "stop" or "halt" or similar word having come to be used......

 

again in just musing about the topic

Because if you say stop, nobody knows if they should collaborate and listen, or if it's hammer time.

I'm going to just holler "Let's do this!" and "Whoa now!"

I think you should go with "Let's get it on!" Like Mills Lane used to holler.

Welp, I just returned from the YouTube rabbit hole after watching Mills Lane fights... and then videos about lots of other things.
