  1. Please, oh please do not become one of THOSE guys who "eject" fans. Maybe I am sadistic ba$tard, but fans who act like this usually get a quick, but visible chuckle from me. When I won't take their bait...silience occurs. Thank goodness for that fence tho. Use at your own risk. If they become too much a nusance, placing both teams in the dugout until the offender leave will also solve your problem. Today a pissy fan kept motioning for me to come to the fence so he could talk to me about my strike zone....
  2. Thats flippin funny right there! And for some reason, a mental picture just popped in my head of the mask comming off followed by a big hook. Then complete silence moments later. I look into the dugout and make eye contact with an Ass coach, who tells me "Yeah, I said you're horrible". Needless to say, off came the mask, and out went the ass. ..... The one humorous part was a fan from the home team said "He lives there, Blue. Let's play baseball. He does not live there. The house he was in front of was previously owned by Pete Jr, and the ass coach was not the purchaser
  3. This is probably the closest section for this...if not please move. Recently, we've been instructed to use the FED restriction rule in non-Fed games. The other rule sets our association officiates do not have such a provision. To my understanding, it is an attempt to keep more coaches in the game because they pay big bucks to get in there tourneys yada yada yada. Although I have voiced my displeasure with this, I'm told I won't win this battle. I think the context in which they (our leaders) would like to see this implemented is as an alternative to ejection. Any time I've used it,
  4. Pony, I think my partner sensed from the tone of his voice ( and the type of play he wanted an "appeal" on ) that the HC was going to be quite the A-hole, and figured he better shut it down. From our pre-game he knew if I said a fielder was off the base, that I was dead certain on it and would not be asking for help. I personally don't have a problem with my partner telling a HC he had the same thing as I, if it saves from further discussion and delay on silly requests like this. The actual "appeal" request was that his fielder got to the base before the runner did. It will stop any c
  5. Nope, I just think he really didn't want to be there that night. Although, perhaps a person probably half his age (myself) instructing him to go back to his box was enough to make him feel that way. The second time I said to him it wasn't a polite request, but rather a firm "I need you back in your box, NOW" deal. The only thing I could have done differently was not let there be that second time and EJ for being out of his allowed position; although that would have come across redassed.

  7. Oh why oh why would you make that call. I am sure you wouldn't have heard a peep after that mess of a game. If you were on the field with me, you'd be buying me a 32oz. serloin steak WITH that adult beverage.
  8. Top 1: Grounder to F6. Throw pulls F3 off the bag, and F3 attempts to get back but comes no where near. I signal off the base - Safe. DHC groans from the dugout the F3 got back on. Comes out and tells my partner he wants to appeal it to him. Partner tells him F3 was off the bag. We move on. Bot 1: Same HC is now in the 1B coach's box. R1 is thrown out on a steal to 2B - close but out. On my way back to A, the HC starts arguging that his runner was in there. I said the tag was in time. HC keeps arguging and at this point is holding up the game as he is on the 1B foul line and

    Bye-Bye

    Just another day on the t-ball diamond eh Jax?
  10. @ Jocko I swear you sent this guy to work with me a few weeks back. "Partner" (an experienced slo-pitch umpire?) shows up 45 minutes before the game. He's already dressed and I see him from the parking lot on the field talking with everyone. I think WTF. Go down and introduce myself and notice he's got all his plate gear on - I'm still in street clothes. (I had been assigned the dish on GM1 - already gotten my gear out and cleaned it, etc. You bet I want that early plate while its cool ) He tells me he only lives a few blocks away and figured he'd just walk over dressed. I
  11. I laughed when they said something about "you could just take the bat then on a chopper and smack it again and it would be foul!!" NOT.
  12. Surely you don't need all those shirts and pants for three games. Jelly of the field. About the nicest field I've ever been on was one used mainly for Men's fast pitch....375ft+ fences at 10ft high. lol
  13. I sincerely hope this is a joke.
  14. Am I too far back from the catcher? What do you guys think?
  15. Jax oh boy, you're something else in your old age!!
