Interesting discussion. The ump was not set and was moving away from a good view, instead of moving towards the 45 . He did sell the call. From the distance we were at, it is hard to see( it look's like the runner beat the throw), which proves that every play look's different depending on where you are.

Hey you let me play,now you are in trouble,lol,speaking of,do you here someone say trouble trouble, as in a fielder kicking the ball around a bit to make it close, and the runner busting his butt, I'm safeing that one on a wacker, vise versa for an out call, the better play gets the walker (could have been a double header and he needed it's, red boys, not me...),

Finally, I would have asked the coach if he would like for me to get help, (since I felt I might have kicked it, one person or the hole place,booing) and done so as to get it right, or just smooth things out,that's our job. But, if you needed an ejection, tell the coach to pay for three next time, just kidding, enjoy, Rusty

Base umpire needed to work to the 45 foot line to get a better angle, use better timing, (runner at second) to get that one. Then what's with the hand in the air this, lol, just stand up right and listen then say in my judgement,

Plate umpire never got 1st base line extended for help at first, and mask always comes off at the crack of the bat, there was a runner on third, watch third baseman cover bag, yes needed to get into eat shot of partner and coach conference..

No skull caps on coaches. There was a runner on first and it seemed like the base umpire was in C??? At least it looked like that way...

Plate man didn't move from behind plate or remove mask during play (not that he would change call. I might have been out to help my partner half way through the argument.

the base umpire seemed to be moving when he made the call at 1st base......more important to be SET when you make that call. The plate umpire seemed to be very deep.....I like to get as close to the catcher as I can without interfering with a possible throw.

OK fellas, not picking on the umpires in this video, just using this as a training tool, what things do you notice that could be addressed using 2017 game management skills and rules. How about positioning? Timing? Comment away please!
