You Could Hear Crickets Chirping, In The Daytime ...

Low Little League minors, a step above T-ball. Coaches coach a base, and act as a base umpire. I'm the third base coach. My son singles to right field. Next batter singles to right field. First base coach yells to my son to go for third base. I'm yelling, and waving my arms, for my son to round second and come to third. Right fielder cleanly picks up the ball and throws a strike, on a few hops, to third base. I yell, and signal, for my son to slide. He executes a perfect slide, but I still call him out. As grunwar already stated, "The ride home from the game was pretty quiet". Officiating your own kid's game is always a lose, lose, situation, always.
