  1. I worked 4 games of USSSA ball and the level of play was pretty rough; however I was more miserable at the careless lack of effort from my partner. For instance: Fly ball down right field foul line, we are working two man system of course, and I go out on the trouble ball from the "A". I am half way between the outfield fence and the 1B bag. The ball lands fair, I point it fair and turn towards the infield with the throw. At this point, I s**t a brick as I realize my partner is still "camping" behind the plate. BR rounds 1st and heads two second for "thankfully" a stand up double with no throw. Here is my question: I have never worked with this guy. He is significantly older than I and in the parking lot said he had years and years of expierence. How should have I addressed this post game? Keep in mind this was game #1 of 4 total. Needless to say, I told him we missed a rotation and explained it and he said "Ah no one noticed, no biggie" The day got worse as took the stick. R on 1st, no outs, a line drive in the gap, I rotate down towards 3B, throw is accurate and kid is dead to rights at 3B, tag is applied to left hand. I stand up ready to bang it out, but training told me take a look over my right shoulder and see my partner. Good thing because he at that moment is signally "a safe call that looked like a eagle flapping with closed fists" calling him safe. So I immediately turn and jog away from the base in an effort to seperate myself from the play, hoping the coaches don't realize I was in better position. Thankfully it worked. How would you have handled this situation? Nothing makes me miserbale more than working with a guy who doesn't care and I am working my A** off . I could be home with SWMBO and enjoying my weekend.
