Can't answer your question...but On Tuesday they cut 12 umpires, including two friends of mine. Then this morning they added them back. Just a FYI.

I'll be hanging out there next Thursday.

This was clunky...

R1 on 3B. I'm in C slot.

Grounder to F5, on the throw I move in towards 1B, and have one of those "did she pull her foot" deals. I couldn't see the pulled foot , just noticed there was a giddup...

Had this come up and partner was pretty adamant we should get an out and a DQ.

I went back to school the last couple of years.

I looked like one of those Genghis Khan warrior dudes. Top knot pony tail.

Then came back to reality and umping...got a hair cut :(

Funny and Creepy At the same time.

When I was a young, long haired, metal listening, fellow I never , ever would have imagined that I would be reading a thread online about who's umpiring softball games.

Dead ball strike- ASA

I'm confused. :o

2 strikes on batter. Pitch is inside the batters box, batter swings, hits her in the hands. Ball goes foul.

I ruled foul ball. No one said anything.

I can't seem to find...

Same here

In our area, not counting the DI umps, we all work 2 man.

The sectional championship games are 3 man system.

So the vast majority of us have very minimal experience in 3 man.

We go out on...

It wasn't a malicious thing, but it was a pretty forceful thing.

Different way to handle this ?

ASA pool play 16U.

I'm BU. R1 on 1B. Runner breaks for 2B on a steal. Does this hook slide, and rolls off the bag screaming in agony.

When I say screaming, I mean screaming, it's obvious she's...

Good Call

See this one a regular basis. Make this call on a regular basis.

The coaches who know the rule say nothing, those who don't come out to chat.
