It would be easier for me to tell you the number of games where I didnt have any fans or parents make comments about balls/strikes - none that I can think of. They are a biased judge and so long as it is within reason - a part of the game (i know many disagree with this)

In this age that I've been calling for the past two weeks. There is 4 coach that can coach and 2 that can coach.
Really? Count yourself lucky at that age level.

1 of the 2 coach that can't coach, she makes a fool of herself, trying to argue with me from in the dugout. Aftergames she vents out and start to yapping. Does she know that she is a roll model to this girls. "I love watching her look like a fool!!!"

Her team was doing real good last night, but then they had problems on the field metal errors and lost the game. Then she starts to yapping.

Get a clue on Coaching!!!!!!!!!!
This coach needs to be put in check. A warning will likely do it .. if that doesnt work toss her. In a rec league they get to know you - she would learn quickly. The coaches at that level have their kids on the team and and are usually fairly new to coaching. I put up with general comments for example "That was a good pitch" to her pitchers if I called a ball - if they are addressing me about my calls; they have entered a new realm. There is a "know it when you see it" line - if that coach is crossing it; its time to step up and put an end to it.
