That's why I would get together with him/her, just in case. I don't want to just say I had an IP, and then let him figure things out from there.
I would agree. In this instance it is important to make sure all parties are on the same page. Did the BR reach first. Did all runners advance 1 base? Making sure both umpires are on the same page never hurts anyone.
