Just got back 1/2 hour ago.
Now just sitting here trying to wind down and get to bed, got the appointment with the surgeon in the morning......
Was just looking at my buddy's "medicine"
Thinking maybe it will help me fall asleep......
But my luck I'll grab the stuff that makes you hyper and paranoid! Lol

Still can't believe he can just go into a store and Buy it now !
Even comes with warning labels. Lol

Hola Taterville

woo what a couple of days..feels like it should be friday already..

1st of the double header Tues went well, no issues no one upset.. 2nd game.. Yeah 1st game that I have ever been in that we had to call the district manager for a ruling due to a protest.. and then called Bristol to get a ruling on that as it was not received well.

1st and 3rd one out.. flyball to right field its caught. the runner on third tags and runs home the runner on 1st had taken off got halfway to 2nd and turned to go back to 1st as he did not tag up. the right fielder throws to 1st 'doubling him up" However the runner on 3rd got across the plate before the out at 1st base.

Does the run score.. Thank God I was on the bases. The home plate ump made the call that the runner scored as he crossed the plate before the throw to 1st, he asked me what I saw I agreed with that completely as the runner did cross the plate before the ball was at 1st base. He calls the run scores and we attempt to play on. The kids switch out onto the field and into the dugout and the whole side that is now coming in to bat is Screaming it was a force out at 1st and that run should not score. He gets with the coach I walk in he's arguing 1st that its a force to 1st as the runner has to tag up and that's why hes out without tagging him and you can throw to the base. I said to the home plate up well yeah he is forced to return to 1st. He changes his ruling.. Ok Run does not score as it is a force out.. The other side now goes nuts.. They file a protest.. He hears it says noted returns to the plate and calls to play ball.. the pitcher throws 1 pitch a ground ball to 3rd the runner is thrown out.. The local area director tells the umpire he needs to call the District Leader as the protest must be heard and ruled on before play can resume because its tournament play..Sop the game call the league head get a ruling while this is going on the other team files a protest that he should get his batter back and the out be removed as play should have been suspended.... Yep thats pretty much how the 2nd game went. in the end the home team which scored that run rallied in the bottom of the 6th ( they play only 6) and they had a walk off single which scored the winning run as they had been down by 4 going into that debacle..

So the reason it scores is a runner tagging up is not a force out. He is forced to return but he could advance Should he have advanced to second and stayed its now an "appeal play" to see if a throw to 1st makes him out. Thus the throw to 1st and the runner scoring is considered a "timing play"

F-me umpiring is ROUGH by far the most taxing game I have ever been involved with Its so much easier when you go ***** strikes and outs.. nice and simple..

sigh last night we had to call the district leader again for the "mercy rule' was 10 runs by 4th inning they added 15 by 3rd inning.. however No mercy rule applies in torunaments.. OOPS.. me and another umpire allowed two teams to do 10 in 4 on two games, however honestly we never called the game over the teams did and they both agreed... /ponder..
