Bob,

From what I was told, in MLB the crew chief or original calling umpire will make the change call. It's up to the crew; that is, on some crews if the original umpire wishes to make the reversal or sustaining call, he'll do so. If he would prefer the crew chief does it, then the CC will. If I'm not mistaken, it's the same way in NCAA (at least that's what I heard from one of the NCAA's gurus).

No, I didn't follow the link. I didn't need to. I think you meant to address this post to kcg NC2Ablu. I know Ray Charles is dead. Duh! I'm truly not stupid.

My post was not directed at you, it was directed at kcg NC2Ablu, who inquired about Ray Charles. I was imploring him to only reference living blind people when handing out umpiring assignments.

No, I can't find a video clip. But here is an interesting website that is a fantasy MLB ejection league. All the details, stories and statistics having to do with MLB ejections this year can be found here:
