Last weekend our local travel ball park, Snowden Grove, hosted the Mid-South USSSA Super NIT.  The 12 and 13 year old division finals were televised on MLB.com.  I had the dish on the 13 year old game.  We ran a 4 man crew and we had about 5 minutes to pregame prior to walking out onto the field.  One of the guys I work with frequently, the other two it was my first time to work with them.  It went well except for one (double) call on a bounding ball hit down the 3rd base line, which was most likely due to our very abbreviated pregame.  We had been rained out on Saturday, so the championship game was the 4th of the day for one team and 5th of the day for the other.  One team had left Huntsville, AL at 4am and was playing their 5th game of the day until just after 11pm.  It was my 4th game of the day, and 2nd in a row behind the dish.  The kids were tired and both teams had used all their pitching to get to the finals.  The umpires were tired as well.  I debated as to whether I should post the video or not.  I have used it to see some things I need to work on.  I decided who better to add critique than the fine gentlemen on this site.  Don't be too mean.  And as a caveat, Gerry Davis pants are the standard for this complex and the pink shirts were requested by the UIC for Mother's Day.
