  1. TIMING TIMING TIMING!! I need to slow down my timing. I read that so fast the first time, I had (red) "solo cup".........
  2. Curious to see where this is going... (Why)
  3. @Mr_Blue we've all been learning, each and every game. It's been said that 90% of the game is played within 10% of the rules. It's our job to be able to interpret them all in the event of a "not so common" type situation. You've done well. you recognized, you asked for help............now, you need to move on. You're only as good as your next call. Don't dwell on this one @$$clown. We're not all like him. As someone eluded to earlier, we are short officials. Don't let this sour your taste for something you obviously enjoy.
  4. Well.................since we are being transparent.........my first thought was "I've got enough to worry about. I don't give a $#!T how it's scored".
  5. If the batter complains that (or the umpire determines) it is distracting, then they need to go. Otherwise, you could open yourself up for litigation in this wonderful place we live in if YOU have them remove them. At least with LL "safety" concerns, you are covered if they are distracting to the batter. Some could consider the sunglasses as a safety device, and who am I to determine if that "comebacker" could have been seen better if he/she were wearing shades........... as opposed to just flat out making up something to have them remove them, and then taking that ball to the face.
  6. Yesterday afternoon, I used the https://www.ump-attire.com/Baseball-Umpire-Equipment/Clothing-Apparel/Cooling-Products-Recovery/6587-uCOOLTWL_McDavid-Ultra-Cooling-Towel-with-Infused-Copper once during the game and wrapped my head and neck with it after. It did a tremendous job in cooling me down during & after the game.. I have not used the https://www.ump-attire.com/Baseball-Umpire-Equipment/Clothing-Apparel/Cooling-Products-Recovery/KB-CHEST_KoolBlues-Umpire-Chest-Protector-Cooling-System yet, but have it ready for a tournament I'm doing the first week of August.
  7. If you do anything, you are depriving the defensive team of possibly getting an out from it. Tell Mr. or Mrs. scorekeeper to just make a note. Conversely, It could very well be a legal unannounced substitution.

    Caught ball?

    I understand the vernacular, but still not sure I'd call it an argument @ArchAngel72...............I'm willing to bet it's a sure thing considering the source. ma·ven NOUN NORTH AMERICAN informal mavens (plural noun) an expert or connoisseur. synonyms: intelligent person · learned person · highbrow · academic · bookworm · bookish person · man of letters · woman of letters · bluestocking · thinker · brain · scholar · sage · [more
  9. ......and here all this time I thought it was fat bottomed girls
  10. So do you "hear" a chainsaw through the ear piece so you know to give that mechanic?
