While lawump, at 1B,  was picking daisies or trying to find the American Legion Queen in the stands, an interesting play happened.

thanks for sharing the tournament with us

That's not "the" hidden ball trick. But the decoy did not fool U2.

I think the only person fooled was R2. Maybe 3BC. It worked just like it's drawn up on the chalkboard.

It shouldn't, he's a PAC-12/WAC/MW umpire.  Great guy, too.

Also, I was the first base umpire calling "out" on today's #1 play on ESPN SportCenter's Top 10 (even though I was mostly blocked out by a pole on the camera shot).  Now that was cool.  The "fake pickoff to second base" was #3.

1BC was SCREAMING, "back! Back! Back! Stay! Stay! Stay!"  LOL

Was that the Delaware ss diving behind second?  Awesome play.  Couldn't believe he got him.

@lawump -- who was #76 on the crew in the game where Sutton was HPU?

He looked like Craig Mills, but I wasn't sure....

Sorry I knocked you down a peg on that Regional game there under another topic, MR CREW CHIEF FOR THE 2019 WORLD SERIES.

However, I figured you needed to get in a little work and exercise in a Regional, rather being an armchair quarterback at home this weekend.

Hope you mowed the grass yesterday/today to get your heart rate up and get some exercise. Hate to see you pass out or something in the WS. And no

I am not trying to jinx you.

Good luck. I will be keeping up on the box scores. Say hello to miss USA (future cowgirl) and make us drool with a picture again. Say hello to

David Thompson.

They will not let us work a Regional and the ALWS.  

I have been working out hard for many months trying to get in shape (I'm down 16-pounds as of this morning).  I ran a 5k at 6:00 a.m. this morning.  Not the same as mowing the grass...but it'll do. 

I'm hoping Miss USA or Miss America shows up again!

Sorry, but each day when I see this topic posted, I have to remind myself that in this post, the AL is American Legion and NOT Atlantic League...................
