Ball is foul, verbalize with mechanic...everyone stops .... ball is fair......mechanic, everyone keeps going because they didnt hear anything.

Ball is not caught, safe mechanic....
Well, you can do it your way. I'll stick with pro instruction, which you can read for yourself in the red book, for example, section 2.5, pp. 9-10. I'm sure it's in CCA and the (gag) FED manual as well.
