Well, yeah. I'm not talking about the umpires, I'm wondering about the coach yelling "foul-tip!" on an uncaught pitch.

OK, I'm confused. Foul-tip strike 3 is an out, so I'm not sure what any of you are talking about. Second, once the phone goes off, tell the acting manager that the next thing the guy on the other...

Yeah, Mike's right. Get outta there in a hurry, you'll see your partner in the lot and talk to him on the way there anyway.

Jim's number 3 is absolutely true as well. Instead of saying something like "Either back to your box or out to your car!" say something like, "That's enough, get back so we can play ball." You...

I probably would have given him a little bit of time once he stopped just to head back to his box. You essentially ejected him for stopping when you told him to (depending on the timing of it, of...

There was nobody in this little story that wasn't (at least on some level) an idiot. Though you may have been right, don't overrule, just explain the rule to him and let him hang himself if he...

Definitely a coach. Definitely profanity. Definitely 9 year olds. Easiest toss of your life (well, maybe not, but close!) and you missed it.

Anytime people "rush" the field to argue a judgement call, put up the stop sign and VERY curtly tell them you won't discuss judgement calls. The ones that make it out to you get tossed. After that,...

DANGER! Don't do or say anything like that again. Your job ends as soon as you leave the field, which should be ASAP after the last out. File reports and let whoever your boss is handle it from...

Don't give the coach that many warnings. One and done, especially if it's about the same play. You could ignore him if you feel he's still walking the line, but once you give him a warning, he...

True, but I'm just throwing that out there on deep background. I'm sure he had been barking before that, but once he came out and ran through PU's stop sign he was done. I would have waited a bit...

Be strong. Don't go to your partner to discuss it and then EJ someone afterwards. It makes it seem really wishy-washy and you'll probably end up sending the coach to the parking lot, as well, once...

You most likely would have had an EJ anyway, but you went a little to quick to the trigger. If he's coming down to argue more, let him get a sentence or two in so he gives you more rope to hang him...
