my technique

This is my new technique that I learned at Carl's camp a few weeks back in McAllen. I have called a few games using this, I am in much better position than I was before.

When the first basemen yells "He's Going," backpedal straight back, not at the base. WATCH THE BALL. Pretend the ball is connected in line with your shoulder. As the ball passes you, turn to the base. STOP. Do not move as you are deciding your call. At this point you should be relatively close to the base, but far enough away to see the whole play. Wait a second to make the call, as mentioned before, there could be a dropped ball, an overslide, or both. One Play, One Call.

Rutledge, It is referred to as Pause, Read, React, or P2R. Same concept though.
