  1. Saw this mechanic at a AAA MiLB game this weekend. R1, extra base hit down the line all the way to the corner. U1 turns/goes out and gets the fair/foul call. UIC stays home, U1 goes inside as batter/runner ends up at second with a stand up double. Now both U1 and U2 on the inside. R1 scores easily without a throw. I know in 3 man once you go out, you stay out. Maybe he just turned for the fair/foul call and didn't go out. I looked in the CCA and they don't address this. My final thought was that with R1 and an extra base hit and R1 is going to score, UIC stays home, U1 after getting fair
  2. http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=26373781&c_id=mlb What is going on here? I would not consider this a quick pitch for OBR. Like the announcers, I think Davidson just wasn't ready for the pitch. Puzzling.
  3. This ought to start a pretty hearty debate. http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_23008944/nm-high-school-ump-pushed-english-only-game
  4. With R2 only, I was on the line. That is the mechanic. We do use go opposite of that with 2 outs though. U1 on the line, U3 in the middle.
  5. Was this already on youtube? I captured it from espn3.com and put it on YouTube.
  6. He did get it right the first time. Excuse the quality but here is the video of the play. Best view of the play is towards the end.
  7. We have been to the Tennessee high school association camp twice and then to a very well ran local camp in middle Tennessee that started up a couple of years ago. I highly recommend the local camp. It is the Mid Tenn Umpire Camp.
  8. I know a coach that teaches the batter to drag the bat back at eye level of the catcher to distract him as someone mentioned earlier. He coached my son's team. I used to tell him if I ever worked one of his games behind the plate I would get his players for interference for dragging the bat back during a steal. I would say that over 50% of the catcher's never caught the pitch when the batter did this. I asked a college umpire about this at a camp I went to and he said he didn't have anything on the play. So, I changed my view on that maneuver. I won't call interference unless the bat contacts
  9. No, it happened yesterday in Nashville. Repeat triple steal.
  10. http://www.vucommodores.com/sports/barcabreak/spec-rel/032713aaa.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78QLIer4ND8&list=UUsnfoaCkT6gvdSESzVdCGGQ Have you ever had this play in a game? How close did the catcher get to getting interference called on him? Would you treat his actions on the steal of home differently than you would if he was coming into the strike zone to receive a pitch on a steal/play at 2nd only?
  11. My 18 year old worked his first high school JV game tonight. He had the plate and I was on the bases. Pretty cool. Just 4 years ago he started out on coach pitch games. Now he is working JV games games in a very competitive high school district in Middle Tennessee. He was awesome of course. He said he thought he might of missed 2 pitches. The game went smooth except for a run down with a tag I think I might have missed in between 1st and 2nd. I had to listen to the coach tell me I missed that one really bad. He had a pretty good view from the 3rd base dugout, no doubt. So far this
  12. My son and I happened to be at the right place and right time. We did Vanderbilt's first intrasquad game this year at Hawkin's field. All turf except for the mound. I doubt we will ever get that chance again, but I am keeping my fingers crossed. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Hawkins+Field,+Garland+Avenue,+Nashville,+TN&hl=en&ll=36.143321,-86.807412&spn=0.001507,0.002175&sll=35.998008,-86.363525&sspn=1.093259,2.227478&oq=Hawkins+Field&hq=Hawkins+Field,+Garland+Avenue,&hnear=Nashville,+Davidson,+Tennessee&t=h&z=19&output=embed&output=svembe
  13. Working 3rd base on 3 man crew and I had a whacker at 3rd base late in the game with the score tied. R2 no outs. Sac bunt right in front of the plate that was fielded by F2. He makes the throw to F5.I bang him out, pretty sure I got it right. Only problem is, that bit of uncertainty is eating away at me. This was opening day for local high school district. The more I think about it, the more uncertain i become about the call, and start feeling like I failed to "not suck". That team ended up scoring a run that inning but still lost by giving up 2 in the bottom of the 7th. Takes me a few days
  14. He lowered his shoulder on him. I should have included that in the report.
