  1. Truer words have never been spoken. A few years back there was 4-5 videos of a Huntington Beach Police Officer involved in a fight with a mentally unstable suspect. The fight started on their feet, went to the ground, and then back to their feet where the Officer ended up shooting and killing the suspect. The suspect, if I recall had gotten an item or items off the duty belt which made the officer fear for his life with the suspect now having weapons. 5 adults stood there and taped this, from beginning to end. Not a single one of them jumped in to help the officer, especially when the fig
  2. I'm ending the coaches participation right there. The optics to start with are horrible: 8-12 year old kids watching 2 grown men barking at each other through the fence, hurling obesities at each other. Parents and fans of said 8-12 year old kids watching this with a higher likelihood of also becoming participants in the above demonstration and thus having the whole thing spin out of control. Your job as defined in the rule book is to be the SOLE representative on the field of Little League International. (9.01(b)) If you are representing LL as an organization,
  3. You got hosed! I did the same thing and the kids coach rung him up for a strike!
  4. Why would you not use the balloon? They are great... they provide better protection, including your arms, are cool since all you're wearing is a shirt and if worn correctly, provide all of the normal range of motion, including running, as you have with an inside protector. I try and use them whenever possible, especially lower levels where the battery and their ability to throw and catch is in serious question!
  5. Was slated to work a TB game on the varsity field which was scheduled to start at say 10am... there was another game on the JV field which started at 930. Well... someone forgot to turn off the sprinklers overnight (can you say Bull Durham?) and the field was completely unplayable. They expected me to wait for the game on the JV field to end (so what, 2, 2.5 hours?) and then work their game for the same $70. Told them no... they could pay me to sit in the lot and wait around, and then pay for the game OR I can call the assignor and see if he can find someone for them, but considering the last
  6. Had a run of the mill MC ejection the other night in our District All Stars game: Details of Ejections: Top of 5th inning, 1 out, bases loaded, game tied 4-4. Sea View player #XX became involved in a run down between 3rd and Home. As #XX was attempting to score, the catcher for HV (#YY), with possession of the ball tagged #XX for the 2nd out of the inning. As #XX was tagged, he lowered his shoulder and arms in a non-defensive manner and purposely created contact by driving his shoulder up and into the lower chin of HV player #YY. I immediately called time, declared #XX o
  7. One of my female co-workers thought on the subject: this was MLB's way of trying to increase the female viewing demographic.
  8. I especially liked how Max was about to drop trowel right there on the mound; that would have been classic and set the new standard for 'inspections'.
  9. This made me chuckle... Did a game in Newport Beach a few weeks back. One team had two coaches, the other had more coaches than players. Don't know what they were there for; maybe to go grab coffee as needed?
  10. Correct. The fourth coach was to be there to help with covid protocols, sanitizing, etc... We only had three total four both teams, so number of coaches was not an issue.
  11. We have had a few ejections this year... After a five year drought. Our HS unit had a few instances of parents going after umpires in the parking lot this year. Age of the players does not mean the fans or coaches will behave better.
  12. I'm the league UIC and in this game, I am just a parent cheering his daughters team on... Top of 6, 2 out, 2-2 game, R2/R3. Foul tip... catcher lazily throws the ball back to F1 thinking this is a foul ball. F1, head down and not paying attention walks back to the mound, R3 being a little more heads up takes off for home. Simi close play at home, but R3 is safe, visitors go up 3-2. Home team assistant coach starts screaming at VTHC who is in the 3rd base box that this was bush league, yadda, yadda, yadda. Our coach and the VTHC start getting into a heated yelling match, and comi
  13. What is this rain you speak of? Can you send some to California? We're back into major drought conditions...
