Second year doing High School and had first ejection. (Already had my 1st college ejection but thats a different story lol)
Bottom of the 7th, bases loaded home team is down 2-1. Batter hits a pop-up to the shortstop, i did not see my base umpire call infield fly, the shortstop drops the ball and R3 advances home, the shortstop throws home but R3 beats it so i call him safe. I call time to clean the plate, and the visting team coach (lets call him Frank) comes up and says "I want to make a dead ball appeal that the runner that just came in didnt tag up to third on the infield fly." I tell him "Frank he dropped the ball" and after i ask my partner if he called infield fly, which he did but did not signal,after telling me he called infield fly I signal the BR out and verbally say and signal that the run still scores. (Score now tied 2-2) Now the home teams coach (lets call him paul) wants to know why his BR is out and Frank wants to know why the run scores. So i tell Frank, "Frank go talk to james (U1) and i will talk to Paul" so after explaining that the BR is out due to the infield fly rule paul says "ok" and goes back to his position. As im walking back towards the plate Frank is walking by the mound and is waving his arms and yells for the whole stadium to hear "Thats messed up" followed by "This is BullSH*#!" After he said that i say "ok, now your done" he stops turns around is coming towards me, i take out my line-up card to write down that he was ejected. Frank is now over me trying to intimidate me (im 5'5 and he is just a little taller than me about 5'8) he says, "Why the hell you throw me out for" and i say "for Unsportsmanlike conduct"so after writing on the line up card, i look up at him as i go to look up he pushes the brim of his helmet into my forehead, where the FHSAA logo on my hat is as soon as he did that i pointed to where he made contact and said "Watch it, Thats contact." He goes on to say "thats bullSH*# and blah blah blah" and i just walk away and ge takes a few steps towards me then exits the field. Following the ejection they intentionally walk the next batter get bases loaded again and then pitcher throws 4 pitches in the dirt. Home team wins 3-2.
I got them monday in a district game also, i got 1st base and aready gave my plate umpire and the third base umpire the heads and me being the crew chief hopefully wont cause any problems there. Any advice for my upcoming game with them?
*Side note: If this was a college game I would not have tossed him due to the fact he was not directly saying anything to me. Also i do not beleieve that the contact was intentional but either way it is still contact.
