Probably because there are a lot of leagues that actually do have a "must slide" rule in their local rules. A lot of umpires start off in these leagues, and probably never mentally separated local rules from ASA. Our organization supplies SP umpires for 3 different towns, and 2 out of those 3 have a "must slide" rule.

I haven't decided if I should call it from the dugout or the outfield. Apparently, both have really great views!

Screw green, it ain't easy being blue!

I won't be coming here that much anymore. I might check in now and again.
