Also, on my usual strike three, my mask stays on. Here it is coming off.
Did the ump really need to follow the B to see the dugout entry, or just move if needed to have a good angle?

"my mask stays on. Here it is coming off" does not seem consistent in not giving the call away.
Officiating takes more than OJT.
It's not our jobs to invent rulings to fit our personal idea of what should and should not be.
