    Late Season EJ

    Thats what is so bad about travel ball. No real league oversight . Thats why the behavior is so crappy. I have gotten to the point i will not work the last day of any travel ball tourney, only the opening rounds. the absurd behavior to win a 2 cent crap trophy is amazing
  2. I know how to change the computer strike zone to the expected zone on the lower half of the zone . The new definition of the bottom of the strike zone" shall be the hollow of both knees of the batter" so a pitch that catches the hollow of the front knee but on the ground by the back knee would be called a ball.
  3. Good Evening I got asked to do a favor and work a Little League District game Majors . When at bat the one team would holler and root for their batter very loudly from the dugout . They did not make any negative or personal comments toward the pitcher. Just lots of typical" hit that ball hard " drive it out and other loud encouragements or chant the name of the batter. The Defensive coach says that this is not allowed and they have to quiet down during the pitch????? In the green book the only rule i can find is 4.06b ? Is that really a proper interpretation of the rule? I think its stupid ? This isn't golf .
  4. this is cluster F*#K waiting to happen!

  8. Who actually making these? and $90.00 is pretty steep for an amateur level umpire . I will stick to my Smittys poly spandex for now. https://www.gerrydavis.com/product/B08PTMLB001PL/MLB-Pro-Style-Plate-Umpire-Pants.html

    Invalid appeal question

    And it was the wrong call
  11. If any one here is a long time member of the ABUA board. They might remember some very crazy post by a member named ExCop . He was from Toronto and the post were sometimes just insane . Lots of ejections and fights .

  13. and this is why I hate the travel ball bs about getting scorecards signed . If their even a hint of problems i leave let them go to TD desk if they want
  14. If this article is correct? It appears the protest was allowed because the Umpires used a cell phone to call for a rules interpretation " GHSA has not responded to 11Alive's request for comment on the use of cell phones to make a decision other than say that "they were not used to determine whether the runner had touched the third base bag." So the call was correct! But by getting consultation via phone GHSA overturns the call?? Bottom line, in Georgia go get your rulebook out of the car instead of making a call to your UIC or Rules Interperter
