Reaching.


If you can verbalize effectively for the level you work and the players and coaches you're working with, I don't see what the problem is. I give in/out and it works and I still get to...

I thought this one (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/30/opinion/sunday/what-umpires-get-wrong.html) had some interesting findings.

There was a replay in the Cubs/Pirates game that was pretty good. Bob Davidson called a Cubs runner safe diving back in on a pickoff attempt, but the replays showed he was clearly out - tagged on the...

If the film maker had a look at this website, they'd probably feel the same way umpires feel when fans talk about them. Start at perfect and get better.

It covers it in the same way as just calling a runner "safe" at first base even though the ball beat him by two steps and the first baseman pulled his foot. In both cases, you have a call and an...

Maybe next year Girardi can throw a red flag and then the base umpires will vote on the ejection, or they'll poll the audience based on cheers.

This is how I got my start, for whatever it's worth. I was making $20 on the bases, $25 on the plate, for a $45 DH. Sometimes I'd just do two plates if the other kid didn't want to suit up.
