Maybe the stupidest thing; "C'mon blue, call 'em (pitches) both ways!"


In the TOP of the first inning!

Coach yells, "Come on, Blue - you're missing a good game."
Fan (who I learn later umpires elsewhere) on HIS side yells, "He knows, coach, but they sent him here instead."

Related to this one....I was watching a buddy of mine work a D1 game at the full stadium of a highly ranked team.

First pitch of the game is just enough off the plate that my buddy calls a ball.
A fan about three rows behind me stands up and yells:

"C'mon, Blue......BE CONSISTENT!"

I'm the PU - Pitcher for team A is throwing an awesome drop ball, breaking right above the knee. She's consistantly hitting the same spot, I'm consistantly ringing it up, and the batters are consistantly striking out.

About the 6th inning, the 1st base coach for Team B is frustrated. Batter strikes out, he yells at me "Come on, blue! That pitch is un-hittable!"

Team A pitching coach, sitting on a bucket outside the 1B dugout, right next to Team B coach: "Why do you think I'm tellin her to throw it, coach?"

I about lost it laughing!

Three favorites:

"Lenscrafters called. They'll be ready in 30 minutes."

"Found your cell phone, Blue. It's got three missed calls."

(While sweeping the plate between innings) "As long as you're there, Blue, flip that thing over and read the directions."

I had a game a few weeks ago that a fan was singing songs about wach of the girls and the coaches. he had gone to the web site and made up parodies of popular(classic) rock songs about each of the opposing players. I was glad I had my Head tube on so that it could hide my face and the smile he was bringing to my face with each new rendition.

I picked this up on eteamz today. A player's dad (or coach) said:

"I've only questioned an umpire's ability to see twice and both times, their guide dog bit me."

An umpire came back with: "Good doggie!"

A big favorite

this happened Sunday (3/4) Coach comes up to me between innings. I am the HP umpire.

"Hey blue, their pitcher is really leapin' on every pitch. Can you guys watch her?"

"You bet, coach!"

It was all I could do to keep from laughing at the guy...or not give him a sarcastic comeback.

His team is ahead 12-0 after 3 innings. The pitcher he's complaining about has walked about 800 batters. Every strike she has thrown has been sent back out as a line drive for extra bases.

And she's leapin'!

Yeah. Isn't it amazing the effects a game this bad can have on people? Heck, even the players are sleeping standing up!

Not so, coaches do too.
