  1. Yeah, that’s what we need as amateur umpires, fewer strikes being called. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It was a great on-time call by Morales (U3) Go watch Gil’s video. He signals immediately. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Beerguy, careful on what you show up to the plate and pay with….I know some like to set a trend, this is not one of those times.[emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes, I stand corrected. Although I was eluding to the 99.99999% of times a team ends the inning on the OP tag play (honestly in 24 years have never had it). And I would always agree we need to be rules knowledgeable to be ready for anything & everything. My comment was more tongue & cheek. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. A logical impossibility. The inning is over. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You want to start banging INT outs every time a coach says or flaps his arms safe? Best of luck to you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It certainly is. So is getting pickle and mustard correct by the burger flipper at McDonalds. I’m not entitled to walk back into the restaurant, slam the burger on the floor and scream at the crew member they suck and that they need to get a clue about making sammiches.

    I guess I’m wondering if he’s taking one measly strike called too seriously in this instance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hmm, just found these hidden in the phone’s keyboard….learn something new everyday {no longer hangs head in shame}. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. HS ball ≠ Cape Cod league. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. “They” is plural, where’s the 2nd out?[emoji91] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Excellent book, Maven. I want to read the book about Max McLeary, an umpire who lost sight in 1 eye and made his way back to pro ball and ended up with a good amateur and collegiate career. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My kingdom for Dale Scott sitting in an adjacent booth telling 2 announcers their FoxSports(insert city name) strike zone overlay is horse****. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’ve smelled violations of due process all along. If I’m 20 and at the block party kegger, it’s akin to getting thrown in jail w/o actually being proven to have consumed alcohol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Why was this call different than, say, starting to come set and then halfway through, pivoting to throw to first (and dear lord, please hold all bloviating re: what constitutes jump turns, non-pivot foot, etc. Please leave this to a standard pick to 1st. I know how some of you roll)? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Please, by all means, let them run the show. [emoji849][emoji849]
  18. Max, agree on all good points. Maybe I missed something in his OP - was he referring to a recent MLB game? But my mind went directly to my own little world of summer daddy ball. I wonder if I was wearing said police-type body cam, would super dad have screeched “you f****** piece of s***” from the stands thrice as he was being EJ for keeping his little darling in the box on a nullified HBP. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I would love to see some reactions when closing the pregame mtg - “ok guys, good luck, I’m hitting the body cam record button now.” [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Mic/body cam the umpires? Ok fine with me. That also means fans and coaches appear on said body cam. I’m game. I wonder how quickly the winds would change….a guy can dream, right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. May 22, 2002 - Shawn Green, 1-4, 2 Ks. May 23, 2002 - Shawn Green, 6-6, 4 HRs, 6 R, 7 RBIs, 19 total bases (an MLB record all-time, I think). This concludes our study. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Wouldn’t a partner on the wing (3 & 4 man) have a better view? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. BINGO!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. mikeburnett298: https://m.epicsports.com/Baseball/p/10485/index.html I think you said 3/2/2, but this was the closest I could get, and at least it has the count in the right order…..instead of these heathens with strikes first. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
