A player could actually say, "In our last game, they didn't call that!" and they'd be right ... and not lying! :D

Umpires generally stay out of trouble on most plays. It's not "most plays" where a helmet would come in handy. It's those once-a-season plays we need to think about.

I appreciate the comments.

In this area, there is a shortage of umpires. Additionally, the schools do almost all of their own hiring. The schools also know when the schedule a JV game behind a V...

If the coach did not inform you that the DP was going in on defense for the FLEX at the pregame conference, then you cannot allow a CR for the DP. It's too late. The HC had to make that known...

It is the intent of the rule that the DP bats for the FLEX. Did you mean to say that the coach inserts the DP on defense for the FLEX?
