    Delicate situation

    Symptoms of over-heating include indecision and confusion. Could there be a medical factor? Certainly some discussion ahead for the official and the assignor.
  3. This is the instruction page for the line up cards we use. http://www.battingorders.com/instructions/
  4. Closest LL here pays $50/game for PU and drafts RVPs* for BU on the Majors and highest Minors games. That is for games that the District umpires don't cover as volunteers, those are 2 man crews. Below those levels are all volunteer parents. RVP = Random Volunteer Parent
  5. This from my 2015 LL book. LL 3.09 Players, managers and coaches of the participating teams shall not address, or mingle with spectators, not sit in the stands during a game in which they are engaged. Managers or coaches must not warm up a pitcher at home plate or in the bull pen or elsewhere at any time. They may, however, stand by to observe a pitcher during warmup in the bullpen."

    Lodged ball? Stuck in umpire equipment
  7. In your scenario, I would pursue these items enumerated by MudIsFun. I combine 3&4. I can converse w/ a board member and give the board member a minute to make progress. If no visible progress, I will put teams in the dugout and we will wait.

Place both teams in the dugout. Walk out to the mound and LOUDLY announce that the g

  9. So sorry to hear. You will rebound. From the spirit you convey through the forums, it's apparent to me that you are a focused and driven man. Focus that drive on the rehab and good things will happen. Maybe more evaluations of others for a while to keep your hand in officiating.
  10. I would tell catcher, "That looks like a double set, go tell him <brush, brush, brush>" I would prefer this to be a quick word with the head coach between innings, but by then, I may have seen it 25 times and by that time, it's is de facto allowed because I didn't call it the first 25 times.
  11. What's the phrasing on that warning? I'm new to FED ball and I wonder how that would go. I would love to grab a new tool for my tool box here. Thanks in advance.
  12. I think that bit about using the rule book to solve problems and not create problems applies here. If this happened in one of my games, I'd look at those glasses, wonder what took them so long to think of it, and proclaim "I'm good with it, let's play ball!". R
