I hope everyone had an awesome new year! As you may know, it is getting to that point in the school year where scholarships are being looked up. I was wondering if any of you knew if there is such thing as an umpiring scholarship or award available. I am sure my fellow young umpires, as well as myself, will appreciate it any information.
A friend and I were talking this weekend about a play he saw in the game before his. Situation - Competitive collegiate wooden bat league, R1, no outs. R1 breaks to second on the pitch, batter steps back out of the box (away from catcher). F2 misplays the catch and the ball bounces back toward the batter. The batter for whatever reason taps the rolling ball back to the catcher with his bat. PU calls the batter out for interference and returns the runner. The excrement hits the rotary device and the offensive manager argues. .... My friend and I both agreed that within the letter of the rules this is probably interference; but there was not a chance to put out the runner once the ball rolled that far away and common sense should have dictated a no call. We thought this was grabbing the dirty end of the stick and not a word would have been said with a no call. Thoughts?
