Perhaps there is some other dynamic in larger churches in larger cities. Though I'm no longer a church goer, perhaps I still expect a higher standard from the folks that respresent those institutions.

In a high school tournament this past week-end, we called a penalty strike for a slap hitter wiping out the front line of the batters box. (New NFHS rule.) It was called against the local private religious school. In a fairly quiet discussion, the coach told my partner that it was a "bullshėt call".

I agree with my grandma's words, "churches are for sinners, not just saints." Maybe these are just the types of instances that stand out the most.

A few thoughts here - first, no coach ejections in SB (2 in BB) - I have ejected scorekeepers and a parent or two and a player but never a coach.

Second, someone said earlier that they had none in NFHS because most know the rules - would you send them to WV because very few know the rules!

When I need parents to leave the area I usually have the AD, tournament director, tournament UIC or if none of them are around then I have the coach ask the parent/s to leave.

Ahhhh yes, but it's still YOU having the coach have them leave - regardless of the mechanism, you ejected them.

Larry,

Abosolutly I ejected them. You may want to check with your umpiring association UIC and find out how s/he prefers you ejecting fans. My association UIC intstructs that if it's not on the field, let the AD, tournament director, tournament UIC or if none of them are around then have the coach remove fans from the area.

Michael-

I understand that. I always go through proper channels. I was simply responding to the question. I have tossed parents - but I have always gone through the proper channels. I didn't think this thread was meant to be that heavy so I left out some details like "calling down the tournament director". Sorry, I'll do better next time.

Larry,

Thanks for the response. I included the other options for removing a disruptive fan/s for the newer umpires and as a reminder for the veterans that there are alternatives.
