Default Re: What's the best heckle you've ever heard?

During a hs game in Michigan a few years ago... I'd just enforced the force play slide rule and called the double play because R1 had dumped the shortstop... From behind me where the home team fans are sitting (and I'd just made this call against them), I hear, "You belong in the major leagues!"

Didn't say anything, but I thought to myself... "Thanks... idiot."

I was PU for a 21U AAA game. One pitcher could not seem to find the zone. For 3 innings all I heard every time I called ball 4 was "hey Kev, blink". As a Supervisor, I am known by name all over this league. Finally, as the manager realized that keeping this kid in was futile, he decided to make a pitching change. As the new pitcher was warming up, I again heard "hey Kev, blink". I turned to see the local baseball know it all sitting there looking right at me. He repeated it once more, so I decided to play along, and blinked. His reply..."Oh thank Goodness. I was worried that your head had been up your A$$ too long and the $H!T had cemented your eyes closed!" As the field erupted in laughter, I proceeded to the gate, walked around the back stop, and shook his hand while laughing out loud!! Sometimes it's fun to be human.

I've always had a personal rule that the less correct I am (as I am never wrong) the longer I give the coach the opportunity to voice their opinion. I was doing a collegiate softball game at Illinois Wesleyan University in Normal,IL. At that time the rule was that once the pitcher received the ball within the 18 foot circle, the runner was required to either return to the previous base or try to advance to the next base.
I observed the runner do a double feint to draw the throw. I pumped her out.
When the coach started to approach me, I told her "Coach, Stay right where you are! Don't even try. She feinted and there's no doubt about it, so don't even try come out here on this field?
The coach answered. "One Question? Are you on your period?"

This is a heckle, but every now and then, you hear a regular comment. This one was beautiful.

I was doing the dish under the lights last Friday. I have one of those hand warmers in my ball bags. I routinely put one of my hands into one of my ball bags to warm it up between pitches. I hear this lady innocently ask someone, "Why does the umpire keep feeling his ball sack?"

I would dispense with that rule. If you allow one coach to give you more of an earful on a call that you may have blown, what happens when the opposing coach doesn't get the opportunity to do the same thing on a call you don't think you blew?
