Yeah, if they request time, don't run at me, and keep it civil.

I just don't like the idea of someone yelling at me, be it on the diamond, hardcourt, or Costco, and not doing something about it.

Hats off to the basketball ref for tossing the coach. All baseball umpires are proud of you, for doing what we do all season long.
