  1. Hey Guys, I'm currently in my second season of umpiring and loving it! (well besides the 4 hour, 49 run marathon I just had!) Anyway I had a situation in my game yesterday, Runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out 2-1 count on the batter. The batter swings and misses and the ball sails past the catcher and to the backstop. R3 comes home, and 3rd Base coach (who is also the manager) sends his batter running to first as he claimed he thought it was strike 3, therefore dropped third strike. On the throw to first, R2 has come around and scored. I had a very angry manager come out at me claiming that he cannot do that, and because the batter has to return to bat, R2 should only advance to 3rd base. My response was this "R2 scores because the ball is still live, batter comes back with a 2-2 count". Obviously the manager was still very unhappy, but walked away (eventually). Was I correct in saying the ball was live? Should have I given the third base coach a consequence for his error in sending the batter? The final score was 28-21 in favour of the team who was fielding at the time of the incident, so therefore this (thankfully) made this play irrelevant. Also, for those who are curious, the grade was Under 15 Div 2 and it was the Semi Final (as the season is unfortunately coming to a close here in Australia). And I was a solo umpire at the game, and therefore could not ask for help from a partner. Thanks and Regards, Tredders
