Another snide remark I had dancing in the back of my mind, but kept it filed back there.

"Yeah, blue, it can't be interference. She chose that path to get to the ball. Had she chose a different path, my runner would not have run into her. If she choses the wrong path, its not interference, is it?"

Are you sure this coach wasn't a lawyer in disguise?

The catcher on this team was one of the top players regionally in his days, and didn't like it when he was jumping up for the overthrow and nearly got wiped out by the runner coming home (keep in mind, he was in front of the plate when he was jumping, and the runner was going for the back of the plate). He turned to me and said "he's supposed to slide". Snide remark I wanted to make, but didn't: You been in retirement too damn long.
Cappy on T's?

An old standby:
Coach: You're missing a good game, blue!

Umpire: I know, but I was assigned to this one.

Said to me during a Slow pitch Rec game 1 man system.

"Blue you got to hustle out for the call at first"

What I wanted to say, "What was I not hustling enough when I passed your fat *** running down to 1st and had to force myself to stop to keep from smuthering the play.. I'll try to get on the outfield side of first next time."

I can become very unlikable if a fat piece of crap tells me I need to hustle after I was just hustling.

I had this happen once, and what I wanted to say was "Hell, some of us hustle in slow motion yet we beat the hell out of you to first. Who ain't hustling now?"

Speaking of fall ball, something happened to me last week that hasn't happened in a long time.

I had a catcher's box chalked.

Now, granted, it was about 3' wide and 4' deep...

...but it was there.

Better question is, did you enforce it as chalked?

I wasn't sure what to do with it, since no one has ever seen the elusive catcher's box. So I called for coaches and captains, and had a fun moment with the girls on each side as I had them scuff out the chalk with their cleats.

Not the catchers' box, just some extraneous lines.
