  1. I'm curious about the 'keep your hands behind your back' part of this. Why are you trained to do that? If a coach is in my face, I'm keeping my hands up and available. I won't push him but if he swings I can defend myself.
  2. Personally, when I do 'daddy ball' I don't warn. I eject, and eject, and eject....eventually they will learn or it will be very very quiet
  3. More about one baseball brand that wanted a corner on the high school market??
  4. I worked with a young catcher who would rip his helmet off and fling it back toward me, just to throw the ball back to the pitcher. I nipped that in the damn bud.
  5. Yep, the old saying, 'no good deed goes unpunished'. We tried to do good and give the coach a chance to fix the problem instead of just warning, then tossing the offenders. The thing I have learned over the years is, it's better to eject early then wait, because waiting only will make it worse.
  6. Do the rules include a section that allows a player/coach/manager to argue balls and strikes just because the call was wrong? I must have missed that memo
  7. Again, the catcher pulled the glove back into the zone. So he must have felt it was low?
  8. Is it my imagination or have they all gone insane this year? It's really quite simple, you argue balls and strikes you get ej'd....
  9. I love the way Chad handled Dave Roberts, comes charging out and he shuts him down. "Are you charging me? Really??" Roberts is lucky he didn't get tossed too.
