  1. Typically, at the Junior, College, and Pro (AHL/NHL) levels. You're either a Linesman or a Referee. I know in the past when there was only one referee in the NHL, he would travel alone while the linesman traveled together for a few games then hooked up with another linesman a few games later. Not sure how they do it today with 2 and 2. But, to answer your question, no. They do not switch up.
  2. I think we all know who Bob is. Great pic!
  3. Looking to find a replacement pair of plate shoes. I love the Reeboks I have now, but need to replace them soon. I've tried everywhere and can't find them in 7.5. I know they don't make them anymore and NB doesn't make plate shoes smaller than 8...ugh...
  4. @coddizle... your avatar has got that "I'm gonna getcha, Charlie!" kind of look...

  7. I’m suspecting that would mean he’s headed to the Replay Room. Meals had the same assignment when he worked his plate job in Game 1 WS
  8. Being a Detroit Metropolitan area resident, I was watching the game and have seen the play you're talking about. Your question, "... if the batter had not been injured on the play, that he would have been allowed to re-enter the game to finish his at-bat?" If the batter had not been injured, and based on the original call of HBP, he would have been awarded first base as happened in this particular situation. And, as a result of the review...reversing an HBP to a foul ball, he would have been called back to the plate to finish his AB. There would be no need for a substitution if the batter wasn't injured.
  9. Mr. Turgeon should bone-up on the rules. The ball isn't dead on a balk under OBR, which I assume is the rules code this league plays under.
  10. Make sure you look up Scott Taylor when you get to Indy. If you would like his contact information, PM me...
  11. Good for him. I take my avocation of umpiring the game I've loved since I've been 4 years old a lot more seriously than this. A whole lot! The game, and the profession of umpiring, deserves respect. I would, respectfully, decline any assignment I would be given with Mr. Reed. Of course, that would never come to opportunity, but I think you catch my drift...
  12. The rotation with R1 (or R1 and R3) is PU takes the play on R1 if he commits to 3B on a clean batted ball that leaves the infield. BU abandons R1 once he commits to 3B and picks up the BR for a play at 2B or 1B. UMPIRING 101...this should have been part of their pre-game discussion.
  13. PU has the play at the plate. Also, he should bust back to the plate in fair territory and stay in it.
  14. I call every pitch...ball or strike. However, I prefer to call strikes.

    Don't forget to register! I just completed mine. Deadline is 7/31/17 sans Late Fee...
  16. This mechanic is acceptable, too...Time/Balk... However, if you work leagues and/or conferences which use OBR and NCAA codes, you can see what jackpots you can end up in if you use the "Time/Balk" sequence. So, as suggested, I've changed to the "Balk/Time" cadence in HS. Just have to remember when you're working OBR/NCAA games the "Time" element is not in the equation.
  17. That's correct. I got an email from him a couple weeks ago saying he's taking the summer off and will reevaluate his health before next season. First summer off for him since 1980!!
  18. That's a wonderful first Father's Day gift!!
  19. Whenever a fielder asks me to move left or right, I simply step FORWARD with the foot they're asking me to move. Move right, step forward with right foot, etc. Just by stepping forward it keeps my angles and positioning the same an gives the fielder a wider view. Never has a fielder asked me to continue to move after I've done that. Just my $0.02
  20. Well, I found out this week that my investment in a Nutty Buddy was a good one. The little "smear" through the 'B' was from a foul ball that bounced off the dirt for a direct hit earlier this week. The "smear" through 'Nutty' is a result of taking an 85 mph pitch straight from F1's hand directly to my newest best friend, my Nutty Buddy! (Yeah, directly...F2 completely "dropped the ball" Luckily, mine were beneath my Nutty Buddy!) Yes, I felt the pressure on both direct hits, but no pain at all...none! I will never use another cup other than the Nutty Buddy. If any of the brethren have given this cup a thought, get one. You'll be as glad you did!
