  1. I have a serious question. Earlier today I wanted to speak to my pitcher on the mound so I said, "Time please, Umpy/Umpie". Well... he lost it on me... threatened to kick me out if I ever used that term again. Said it was derogatory to all umpires. He said, "Mr. Umpire" is the only term to be used. I have to be honest, I've been saying Umpie for 30 years as a coach and probably another 10 as a player and I've never heard of it being an offensive term. Any thoughts on this? I've read a few forum posts saying that "Blue" isn't always appreciated. I appreciate your input.
