Bob & Richard-

Although I use the phrase "have a question" and not "if you think I/we missed a call," I can understand how the former can translate to the latter while subjected to typical rodent...

Good point, Brian, and I'll add one minor factoid to the equation. At our pre-game meeting/discussion, I (being still a bit new and in continual search of feedback to improve) asked him how long...

Richard, I have a question about your first 'plate meeting no-no,' quoted below:


My method has been to say,"If you have a question about a call, make sure one of us has granted/called 'time' at...

Yes, they do. I was PU for a game a couple of years back & the BU I worked with tells me "I wear my ball bag on the bases, I don't care what anybody says." My first reaction was along the lines of...

Makes perfect sense now, and after a further reading of your OP, it might have been that R2 saw your partner start the 'no catch' signal & took off based on that. Thanks for reassuring me...

I know there's significantly much more to the post, but those are the parts that are relative to my posting & questions:

I agree completely with Richard and Hoppy. He's either gone or the whole team can take the ride home with him. From your second paragraph, said rat has now resumed a coaching/managing role in the...

Disregard the previous request, I heard about the 'fireworks' when I got to the tourney today. I guess Springfield NE may be trying to make up for missing out on that 'Simpsons Movie'...

I agree with Rich on this one, regarding both the ejection and the parents. It's a good thing you were able to get the TD's attention on this, and that he was looking out for you.

Perhaps the...

I think you would have had a legitimate EJ if you'd dumped him after the first wisecrack. Somebody who comes out to throw a verbal grenade and then retreat isn't looking for an answer (not...

I agree with the other posters, both ejections were merited by the recipients and conducted without error (my opinion). I had a similar 'shoulda ejected' situation with a coach during a travel...

I see nothing wrong with the EJ you described. He shot his mouth off, was warned and then chose to jump up and down on the thin ice. We put up with enough nonsense in the name of 'keeping them in...

Just Got Mine

I just got my first EJ of the year (and my first since 2003 - another story), and I thought I'd share it with everybody. Ironically, the incident happened during a charity fundraiser tourney.

I'd think that three ejections during a tournament (I'm guessing they were all in the same tourney last year) would be a pretty strong signal for a rule excluding those ejected for the remainder of...

I concur with Tim's remark. You handled the situation quickly and decisively, had you not run the 3B coach when you did, I'm sure it would have quickly spiraled out of control. If the coach is as...
