  1. okay so bases loaded... no outs.. championship game.... 2 umps. I'm plate, the vet is in the field. batter smashes ball to fence... Runner on 3rd misses plate, 1st and 2nd both cross plate, batters on 3rd which was irrelevent... anyways other team appeals that R3 misses home, which I call him out.... then they argue that the other 2 runners are considered out 2.... my vet umpire froze on me and said I called it right, hes been around for 25 years so we counted the 2 runs and game ended in favor of the team who got the runs. final score 10-9... after the game I caught hell from the crow
  2. sooo Its been awhile since i've come to this site, but I had a question and its unanswerable by my own association... i'm in washington state and Dan Wilson coaches his sons team.... they came to 1 of our tournaments... his son threw out like 6 people in 1 game, then hit a grandslam in another to win it...<---300ft fence. these are 12U... question is, do you ever see ex-professionals coaching they're sons team, and the kids always insanely good?? or.... is this kid beast....
  3. OK Im pretty sure i was suppose to eject him but i thought it was funny but anyways, let me know if i did anything wrong.. besides not getting rid of him. 1st, batter bunted ball which bounced off home plate, the batter took 2 steps towards 1st but he was TOTALLY 100% infront of the plate in fair territory, ball hit him in foot and stopped in fair territory, i called deadball batters out. it was the 3rd out with nobody on base.. the coach comes running out THE BALL DIDNT EVEN HIT HIM, HES 3 FOOT TALL CMON UMP!! i didnt expect anybody to argue it, but the way he ran out and started f
  4. so i umpired my first 3 games perfect, had 2 days off.. during the 2 days got sick.. so yesterday im throwin up all day b4 the game... gametime comes, weathers nasty, parents n kids looked mad from the start. i feel like . first inning lasted 35 minutes(NO JOKE). then a car catches fire in the parking lot.. some kids were playin with a lighter.....burnt the whole back seat of the dudes van. thank god 1 of the kids dads comes in his police car and was parked right next to the kids he put the fire out so quick.. my head was about to explode.. anyways the game lasted 2 hours and 10 min
  5. Well my 2nd game was a total success : ) thanks again for the tips, everything went as smooth as i could have hoped for. I never heard any parents complain, infact all i had were compliments on my "strike zone" and keeping it consistant. apparently i missed a Batted ball hit a runners foot to second, but from my view it looked like he was passed it and the ball didnt take a bad bounce or anything, i just heard ooowwes from the crowd. 1 problem im having is seeing the call at 1st base... i cant seem to get in the infield fast enough without getting in anybodys way so i just go dow
  6. y would i joke? im a new umpire with practically no training. just checked rainout hotline, GAME ON!
  7. yeah the kids can steal any base after the ball crosses the plate. anyways its been rainin so its not lookin good so far.. now i dont really have a reason to bring a list.. the umpire who taught us everything only gave us half the training. he never went over pregame or anything. All they did was gave me a umpire book and said go work.. i've played baseball since i was 4 n always played 2 years up so i know everything about the game (so i thought) I really do have a whole new level of respect for umpires. obviously people are going to get mad because of missed calls but i use to r
  8. YEAaa crap its the ground rules i forgot to go over in the 1st game!! thanks! so when going over Ground rules, what are some basic examples.. This is the only part im going to have trouble with. what does the hc takes us around field mean? this is the 1st time these team's have used real umpires and i dont think they really know the parks that well.
  9. so does it really matter how long your coaches meeting lasts?
  10. so yea i got another game tonight if its not rained out. i was just wonderin if anybody could post some "coaches meeting" tips. i seem to have a problem remembering stuff so i wrote a list before my 1st game and, eventho it sounds "nooobish" i busted it out during the meeting so the coaches knew i ment business. some of the things i wrote down are obvious but ill post them so you know what im going off of. (1 man mechanics) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Pregame~~~~~~~~~~~ .no stealing till ball crosses plate .check swings are called how i see it .6 runs per inning/unlimited after 6 .2 warn
  11. so yea i didnt really mean "screw warren" lol.. im just sayin i got tricked.. felt like a fool the 1st minute on the site LoL. Anyways yea my 2nd game got rained out : (. thanks again for highlighting the important terms with a definition. im anxious about screwin up cuz my 1st game ever went so smooth. the only thing i got challenged on was a check swing. then same coach started screaming at me next inning because he doesnt know the rules : ). (2 outs nobody on full count, kid foul tips ball into catchers glove, i call strike 3 batters out) he starts in, did you not freakin hear
  12. man that crap isnt funny. im laughin but still. screw warren. lol. thanks for clearin that up.
  13. I just made an account for the first time ever on here.. i googled "umpire forums" because i am a new umpire for little league and my first game was yesterday. Anyways I see a post saying my name in it, what is this about? is that somebody somewhere else? I just thought of this name because i thought it was cool.. im sorry, i googled, Little league umpire forums. i just read some pages in the other post but im not that person and i have no clue what they did, i can create a new name or something if you want, i can show you my myspace and everything.. im 20 years old and umpired my 1st
