  1. Here in Florida there is a Ton of Perfect Game. The more Elite tournaments are in Ft Myers and Jupiter areas... With many smaller tournaments around the state... I have worked hundreds of PG games and they have always treated me right...
  2. I feel you... but you have worked so hard all year why not reward yourself with playoff games.. But I get it... I normally work 50-60 HS games a year... But this last year I had a knee replacement. So I thought about giving it up... Turns out our HS assignor retired. I got nominated for the position and got voted in.... Wasn't planning on actually working games but ended up working around 20... We are in playoffs now. I'll be glad when it's over lol... Not an easy job. Especially being short handed...
  3. Nope- not a cop out... Coaches think they already know the rules better than we do... In my opinion they need to know the rules if they want to coach.... How many arguments would we not have to have if they knew the rules...
  4. Personally, I don't go to the coach... They don't know the rule that's on them...
  5. A lot of football players wearing these... We will see what happens.
  6. Been a while since I logged in... For 2022 I probably only Umpired maybe 8-10 games. Those that know me know that I usually work 300 or so games a year.. Had some knee issues early in the year and ended up with my right knee replaced in July. Still recovering and now having some back issues... Hopefully I can get back on the field soon. I am actually the assignor for our High School association so I am at least staying involved.. I'm looking arounf the site here to see what has changed.
  7. I just don't like that D answer for a test question answer. After all the out of play responsibility is Home Plate Umpire...
  8. yeah a Feint is NOT a play...
  9. I'm not trying to cheat but need help with this one. I feel is a trick question... B3 bats following consecutive walks to R1 and R2. B3 hits a slow roller to F6 who feints a throw to first base before wheeling and throwing to third base to try and tag R2, who had overrun the bag. The throw goes into the stands behind third base. All runners had reached the succeeding base when the throw was made. a. R3 score, R2 is awarded third base, R1 is awarded second base b. R3 scores, R2 scores, R1 is awarded third base c. R3 scores, R1 and R2 are awarded a minimum of one base and potentially more based on the umpires’ judgment d. The base umpire could potentially conference with the plate umpire regarding: 1) if the “feint” constitutes a “play” 2) Where were the runners when the ball was released e. Both B and D
  10. Wow.. This is on the Umpires... Correct it... Umpires can't put a team at a disadvantage for a mistake like this...
  11. I have a Gold with TW padding... I love it!!!! NOT FOR SALE!... YET!
