I thought you couldn't review the neighborhood play?

Recommended Posts

The announcers state that the tag at 2B is not reviewable unless the throw pulls the fielder from the base. This play seems to qualify, if that's correct.

That was a routine MLB call - the look from 3B side looks too close to overturn but, the view from HP is obvious.

That is really starting to knit-pick these calls - for years worse than that have been called out.

Take out Replay if they are using it for this kind of stuff.

That never should have been called out in the first place...that's not a neighborhood play, it's barely even in the same suburb.

The neighborhood play is allowed to protect the fielder, not to quicken the DP. The throw was the reason F6 came off early. The throw was slow, F6 went to it (cheated) to make the turn quicker.

Edit:  "The neighborhood play is no longer allowed   . . "

Runners used to chase the pivot man all over the field and blast him into left field.  With the "reach the base" and "no rolling block" rules it isn't necessary any longer.

Great training aid here, on this play the U2 or in 3man this play the ball is hit to the 2nd baseman, so we the umpires want to stay to the glove side and on this play it would be deep "B" and you will get a great look at the touch of the base ( which is not touched, but close as heck) and the transfer of the ball.

      Hello all,
      I have been using a West Vest Gold for the past couple of seasons and while the protection has been phenomenal, the whole thing feels bulky and does leave my lower ribs (it is the largest sized of the three sizes Wilson offers) and abdomen exposed. With that in mind, I'm looking at getting a Force 3 protector after reading some of the smaller reviews in places like ump-attire, but was looking to see if anyone had anymore feedback that was a bit more in-depth. Primarily using it for varsity level high school ball
       
      Any help/feedback would be appreciated greatly

      I have seen a bunch of posts inquiring about the +POS Cobra CP. The only information I found online was not good at all. So I went ahead bought one and wanted to share my review with everyone that might interested in purchasing one. Please keep in mind this is my first video review of anything ever. Hope it answers some questions about it. Tha

      The official on-field shoe for MLB umpires for the 2017 season, the MU460v3 New Balance Umpire Plate Shoes are designed for that extra look of authority with its hi-gloss finish that is easy to clean while maintaining the comfort, breathability and traction you expect in an on-field athletic shoe.
      The redesigned floating instep guard provides advanced features. First, it provides maximum protection where you need it most, on the inside of your feet, without the extra bulk on the outside where you don't. Second, it "releases" from the top making it easier to take on and off and to lace your shoelaces. Third, there is a mesh strap that creates space between your shoe and guard for air to flow.
      This mid-cut style is all-black with MLB logo on the tongue and heel and with NB logo on sole.
      FEATURES
      Dispersion Instep Guard provides more inner foot protection ABZORB® - a blend of Dupont™ Engage® and Isoprene rubber - in heel and forefoot provides superior shock absorption and cushioning throughout the game Strategically placed mesh strap on inside of metatarsal guard that promotes air flow and breathability Guard releases for easy on/off Mid-cut provides greater ankle support Hi-gloss is easy to clean / polishable Snug-fit integrated neoprene sock liner provides additional comfort between foot and hard toe Nubby outsole for enhanced traction 23.1 ounces The official plate shoes for MLB umpires For baseball or softball
