"However, PU if he was hustling should have been able to see the tag."

What was the plate umpire suppose to do run up the line then back in position at the plate? The PU was at 1B extended and couldn't see, if he had been at 3b extended as he should have, he would have seen less. Sometimes no matter how much you hustle, your not going to see everything. Asking for help in those situation is just plain good officiating.

Some officials believe that under any circumstance, they should make the call and asking for help is a sign of weakness. They keep forgetting that the officials on the field are the third TEAM, that should be working together.

Did you notice, "There is no I in TEAM."
