The location of the restroom probably isn't written down, but I bet you could find it.

In our college association, you and your partner will both be gigged on an evaluation if you don't match.

No, I don't.

Advice. Get the batters in the box and keep them in the box until their at-bat is complete. It will help shorten your games.

Due to the plate ump's failure to say 2 words, "no catch", you end up with a **^#storm.

Plate ump came to you, asked if he went, answer should be NO.

I know this is a HTBT, but a simple NO would be better. Too much conversation or a lengthy conference also looks bad.
