Now, what about consistancy? What happens if he's umpiring the non-offending team in 2 weeks time and one of there batter goes to draw a line and he dosen't stop them, let's him finish the line and boots his *** out??? dosen't say much for his consistancy as to when enough is enough, if you ask me.

I like IRISMAFIA's idea

And as for your slow pitch referances.....I personally find that game very boring and I never write the softball exam so they can't send me to do any games

I guess your partner didn't stop the batter if he had to warn him three times.

As far as slowpitch, I find fastpitch very boring to umpire.
I work it, but I much prefer the slowpitch game where there is unending action the entire game, not just when a pitcher gets tired or a batter gets lucky, but that is just my preference.
