  1. Are you talking about when Goldschmidt caught the ball just ahead of the runner? No RLI since he caught the ball. Not sure what you're saying should have happened.
  2. What's the record for # of times a manager has been ejected for arguing the same rule? Davey's on #3 for RLI. Maybe he should spend that time teaching his players to play within the rules of the game.
  3. https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1439425115687620612/pu/vid/1184x664/Qu8_vJmlo6H1IDGw.mp4?tag=12
  4. Turns out, I had a badly infected bug bite that I didn't notice because all I had done all week was sleep and drink pedialyte. So Thursday I ended up at an ER (it's new and thought it was an Urgent Care) at 10PM and got those IVs, antibiotics, ultra sound for blood clots, blood work, all that fun stuff. Still hurts to walk.
  5. I was out of town this last weekend and haven't umpired in almost two weeks. Driving home, I was feeling tired. We had some friends over Monday and I went to bed around 9 - I usually am up until 2am. Tuesday, I woke up and called off a volleyball game because I felt awful. I slept pretty much from Monday at 9 until Thursday at noon. Wednesday, I woke up thinking I was dying. I was convinced I had covid (I got vaccinated) and went to the hospital. I took the self temp and it came up normal twice there, so I went to the store and bought pedialyte. Almost immediately, I could feel my energy levels coming back. So even if you're not out in the sun a lot, or doing a lot of games, don't ignore the hydration.
  6. No reason to appeal when they're out. You appeal when they get on base. Previous activity is irrelevant. I think I just read this discussion on your facebook group page and the real problem is too many players not knowing the rules, and wanting the game to be simultaneously pure rec and played by the rules. You can't have it both ways. From what I read in that thread there, the team just chose to appeal when they should have. Batter's out. The other team should proofread their lineup better next time.
  7. The shirt you posted is the accepted alternative for IHSAA. They went with that, to allow softball umpires to more cheaply transition over. 3 years ago, they had initially accepted the MLB #2 (thin black stripe down the side). Then, changed their minds back and forth before finally saying that the softball one was the accepted alternate to Navy. It was ridiculous and rivaled Billy Martin's yo-yo tenure as Yankees manager.
  8. hahah, I meant as an umpire. He'd talk about it all the time. "Nah, I wear a cup all the time, can't be endangering my future job" He was dead serious.
  9. When I was in college/just graduated, I worked with a guy who aspired to be a porn star
  10. Here's one my friends and I tossed around tonight without a real consensus answer: R2 stealing on a passed ball for ball 4 Batter-runner throws bat to go to first and hits the ball with the bat he threw as he's running to first. R2 scored.
  11. I love bat flips, as long as he's not showing up the other team, I wouldn't hate it.
  12. I was really hoping that you worked this game:
  13. Good catch, edited
  14. I called OBS. Placed BR on 1st and kept R3 there. He was still standing on the base, so he wasn't attempting to advance. Coach comes out and I explained I can only protect one fielder. He said "what about the one that got trucked!" I said "he wasn't near the ball!" He didn't like it. But oh well. I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm awful from past games as well.
  15. Great start to the season! Scrimmage in 45 degree, constant wind, with 45mph gusts! R3, popup hit down 1B line, near the RLI marker (turf field, so all lines perfect) F1 and F3 converging, BR running, i'm on bases getting my popcorn ready for this show. F3 is a few feet behind the RLI line when F1 and BR collide a couple feet in front of the RLI marker F3 drops the ball in fair territory. WUG?
