I agree, if by the wrong move you mean the decision to assign this unprepared umpire the plate for this game. The UIC is responsible for the mess due to his poor judgment in making the original assignment. No matter how the mess was resolved, the UIC should have to face up to the fact that it was his mistake.

The post doesn't say what the plate umpire did, other than leave the field in tears. Maybe there was no option other than continue with the game with a different umpire behind the plate.

However, that is far from ideal, and again, the responsibility for creating the situation lies with the UIC.
