How to catch batter being out of batter's box

So, we kind of got off topic on the original topic.

How do YOU catcher a batter being out of the batter's box.

I've found that a few breadcrumbs, a can of Red Bull, a cardboard box, a stick and a string create an almost foolproof method that not only allows me to concentrate on the strike zone but also can check out that hot mom in the sun dress on the first base line.

Like I said in the previous thread...landmines just outside the box.

Not real effective

More effective, but terribly maims the batter.


I find a snare hidden just under the dirt works without damaging the batter in any way.

Can we put them around the coach's bucket?

Here's a Bouncing Betty. Catch, b1tch.

I haven't decided if I should call it from the dugout or the outfield. Apparently, both have really great views!

Screw green, it ain't easy being blue!

I won't be coming here that much anymore. I might check in now and again.

Depends on which team the hot mom in the sun dress is cheering for.
