  1. None of the above, in 50 years. Umpires will look like this:

  2. I'm grokking that R1 went into 2B standing up as F6 was stabbing his foot toward the base. Perhaps there was a little contact as R1 arrived. F6's foot arrived first. Unless the local rules include the infamous "must slide" rule, no rule in any national code requires a runner to slide. This is nothing. And when the defense screws up an easy double play like this, I'm not bailing them out with a bogus call: R1 would have to do something pretty substantial and obvious (two-arm shove, for instance) to draw an INT call here.

  3. And they will be saying the same thing about all of us in 50 years when they are wearing a variation of a Star Trek uniform (ie whatever other comparison you want to use or one/style that hasn't been invented yet) in the future, with the new style/fashion police of 50 years from now.

  5. @The Man in Blue I’m ashamed to say that I am part of the emoji generation. Whenever I read an article from contemporary news outlets, (vice, huff post, etc...) and even some big name news sources for that matter, I can’t do it without my red pen in hand. A lot of them are simple mistakes that should have been taught in middle school, and caught on the first edit of the article. I can’t understand how multimillion dollar corps allow such atrocious errors to make it into print. People are too accustomed to speaking with ambiguous pictures. But on the same hand I can’t put the full onus on

  6. I’ll even say it ... that is just ridiculous. I did approach an ejection one time but it was because the player and coach were being disrespectful and playing games when instructed to remove the jewelry four times. First inning: I noticed the earrings and told the player to remove them. Second inning: I noticed them again and advised the player and coach to remove them. Third inning: Player comes out with bandaids over them. I follow her to the dugout and issue a warning to the player and coach. Then I hear all kinds of excuses: she just had them done, they are permanent, etc.

  7. Not when you are watching your ten-year old from 200 feet away through chain link fence, players on the field, and three more rows of parents. Pretty easy.
