Great umpiring

5 posts in this topic

Umpire has his back to home plate as catcher receives the throw and applies the tag. The stupid sob is picking up the bat on the first base line.

Runner's foot hit the catcher's shoe and went over home plate. Runner never did touch the plate.

that's a tough one, to be honest. could have gone either way. i watch it once it looks like the runner beat it, watch it again I think he's out.

sucks for Bama, though.

I think safe was a good call, after watching it several times. You can't expect an umpire to see if the guy's cleats go over the plate by a millimeter or two.

Either way that call went, the other manager would have gone out to argue. Umpire could definitely been in better position, though.

I honestly think the runner was safe, but the sheer fact that the home plate umpire allowed himself to be in a position where his back was turned to the play at the plate is absolutely absurd.

      It will trickle back into the economy. I told her to spend it on herself whether is $50 or saved up more but to spend it cause that helps the economy. She loved my idea of doing her part to help.

      Nobody has a problem with fully auto being banned. I personally have no problem with a 21 age limit. Not because I’m over a hundred but because if they didn’t have a Dad that could teach them how to handle a gun then they got learning to do. Folks argue the military allows 18 with a gun but they are getting training. To end on this the ar is not an assault weapon and in its bought condition is no more deadly than any other gun.
