As I understand it, that's up to Amazon. I asked then to do it.

Concerning the other comments about the "phantom double play": As you know, I'm still working. It's true I don't call NCAA D1 anymore, and I don't call 14u or below except when I'm evaluating an umpire. But from 15 through MSBL, I still work regularly. I was picked again last year for the high school state tournament playoffs.

Perhaps it's different in our part of the country, but down here, "if he would have been out, he is out."

Of course, you need to read all the entries about phantom calls to get the full dose.

Guarantee holds: Buy it, don't like it: I'll return your money, you keep the BUE.
