  1. Are there any umpires on here with mobility issues or physical disabilities? If so, how do you compensate on the field? For the record, in March of last year I suffered a herniated disc in L1 L2 that completely compressed the nerve roots that feed my right leg. I had surgery 1 week after the sneeze that caused it. I had lost a lot of the feeling and function in that leg. The main effects are weakness in my quad and some drop foot and ankle weakness. I cannot run and need to watch my step on rough ground.

    sac fly

    And R3 is gonna get a good *** chewing for not tagging up in the first place!
  14. Thanks! I missed the touched in fair.
  15. OK I'll bite. How is it not a foul ball if it was touched in foul territory?
