  1. Here is where I see the OTHER side of this however ......... "You, Home!" (with a point) is in fact the proper base award mechanic. Whether you think it's confusing or misleading, ... that is the way it's supposed to be done.
  2. While 100% correct here, ...I think I see where @ArchAngel72 is going here .... If the runner is on second, ...and you as the umpire knows he must tag up before advancing, ....how can you advance him 2 bases (home), when by rule, he should go back to first, then 3rd. See what I mean?
  3. There's zero lines drawn in this at bat. His "fingers in the dirt" are next to him, within the right handed batters box ...if he were drawing lines, they'd be on the other side of the plate. Chuck123 is right, ...Myers doesn't wear gloves and picks up dirt all the time....that's all this was. He deserved to get ejected mind you, he just wasn't drawing lines.

  5. For me, (as much as I've read) ......this is a classic case of an OOO. It's stuff like this that makes ALL OFFICIALS look bad. I agree, ... preventative officiating!
  6. Great doing business with @tbuck18, and @The Short Umpire .... don't hesitate to do business with these guys, ...no problems! THANKS!!
