    Was Ejection Justified?

    Behind the plate for a 14u game. Pitcher starts to pitch, batter steps out, pitcher doesn't throw. Base ump calls a balk, I overturn because of weak interference by the batter. Coach starts to yell that was a balk 6 or 7 times. I issue a warning. After the inning, he asks for an explanation. I explain weak interference, he starts laughing at me and repeats 3 or 4 times you need to know the rules to be a real ump so I tossed him. The coaches complained to the governing league I ejected him too quick. Just looking to see what more experienced umps(i'm 18th, my 4th season) would have done
  2. Felt like I had to make an account to ask about this situation. Have you ever been asked "Did he go?" while you were standing behind the pitcher? Happened to me. 0-2 count. Batter appeared to obviously offer at a close pitch, his hands looked well in front of the plate and bat also looked like it had went around with his wrists breaking enough that I could say I'm 100 percent sure it was a swing. I'm sure everyone watching the game knew it was a swing, including everyone in the stands and definitely the 3rd base coach who was ejected for arguing after what happened. It looked like
  3. 12u fastpitch playoff game. I'm BU. Top of first, runners on 1st and 2nd, 2 outs, 2 strikes. Shortstop says to catcher "if she goes get her at third". 3rd base coach (also HC) says to F6 "yeah you just go ahead and try to throw her out" before pitch is thrown in a taunting tone. I'm in C and here it clearly. Strike 3 inning over. As he's starts walking back to 1st base dugout I tell coach, in a quiet but direct tone, not to speak to the other team's players. He starts to respond and I say "coach, that's enough, we're not discussing this". Bottom of 3, PU calls time and walks o
  4. Here is a situation that I know you all will be able to help me with: 1 out runner on second. Batter hits a ball towards first base foul territory, ball is caught. Runner from second takes off without tagging, wild throw towards the SS covering 2B. Runner goes back, slides, base flies a few feet; runner is safe. There's this player on the defense who had already expressed discontent on a bang-bang play; he argues on this one as well. Question is, should I have ejected him. This is triple-AAA little league, about 9-11 years old.
  5. http://m.mlb.com/video/v1293296683/texsea-scott-servais-ejected-arguing-a-fair-ball/?query=servais This is one of the games I watched this weekend. As an umpire, I knew what was happening. Bucknor properly waited for the play to play itself out, then signaled time as there was some question whether it hit the batter in the box. So, overall Bucknor did the right things here and the ejection was deserved. Now I did not see or notice any communication between Bucknor & Carlson about potentially being hit in the box, but lack of any communication is essentially the same as saying he
  6. Legit Ejection... Hor$e$h+ Announcers. When Cabrera turns to say something to Angel Hernandez it definitely wasn't "You're the best"
  7. Varsity fall ball game last night. 0-2 pitch splits the plate right at the knees for called strike three. As the batter is slowly walking towards the 3B dugout, I can see out of the corner of my eye that he's staring at me. I look over at him and he's got daggers in his eyes and then points with his bat to indicate that he thought the pitch was low. I say nothing and then he says, "You're terrible." It was probably only loud enough for the catcher and me to hear it. I gave him the full treatment, removing my mask, giving the ejection mechanic and saying, "You're gone." The head
  8. This year's first came early! Last HS varsity scrimmage of the year. Visiting team is down 5-4 top 7. 2 outs .R1 & R3. 3-1 count. Fastball on the outer edge and BR flips his bat toward his dugout and bolts to 1B as I ring up strike two. BR stops and walks (perhaps it was more of a deliberate stroll) back to pick up his discarded bat. Guess who gets the stink eye? Next pitch. Everyone who knows anything about baseball knows what's going to happen, except perhaps BR. F1 delivers same exact pitch in the same exact place. Nice punch out to end the game and I hear, "You gotta be
  9. Browsing thru youtube and found these, what do you think?
  10. Going way back in time to my first season doing high school ball. I was on the bases, working with an older guy from another association...someone I had never worked with, or even met. He was quite proud to tell me early on that this was his 36th year of high school baseball. Everything went fine until: Runner on first, LH pitcher. He comes set, steps off with his back (left) foot and snaps a quick throw to first. Ball skips in dirt, clips the helmet of the runner diving back, then bounces in to dead ball territory. I call TIME, and send the runner to 3rd. DC approaches my partner
  11. Yesterday, 13u game. Top of the 2nd, Runner on 1st. Pitcher comes set, then disengages the rubber. R1 standing 7-8 ft from 1st base. Pitcher walks towards 1st, then finally throws the ball. R1 gets in a rundown. F3 chases runner to 2nd, tosses to F6 who chases him down to F1, who then chases the runner back to 2nd. F1 throws to F4, who places the tag on the runner, which I also see R1 lower his head and arms to power his way thru F4. As soon as I see it, I call R1 out, then eject him for MC. F4 hands me the ball and tries to catch his breathe. I turn to look where R1 went, he went straight o

    Joe Maddon was just ejected after his F1 threw to F3 as he was retreating back to the back (he was playing in for the bunt) and a balk was called. Will update with video when it's up.

  18. At the time of this writing, I'm halfway through my 8th year of umpiring. Until tonight, I had called several hundred games, and not once Ejected a coach or player. Until tonight. 14U Elite ball game held at a 6-field complex used by the home team (which has over two dozen sibling teams across a variety of age groups and skill levels). This complex frequently hosts tournaments, and I'm well known to work these tournaments. Tonight's game was a Youth League game, with a Silver (home) team and a Red (visitor) team. Silver's HC is the dad of their F3, and I have seen him around the complex facili
