Unhappy No sage advice here


I think the two of you handled the play as well as any two man crew could have. The lead runners are always the primary responsibilities of the umping crew and you can only try your best to try and catch a glimpse of what the trailing runners are doing. Sometimes you get lucky timing and one of you is able to see a missed base by a trail runner, but most often the two of you are going to be hustling to watch the plays on the lead runners as in this case. As you can probably tell, I don't have any sage advice for how to cover this play any better, because with only two men watching 3 runners it just aint possible to see everything.

If you get heat from the coach, just ask him if he would be happier if you missed R2 not touching home and ruling her safe on appeal or the BR missing 1st.
