Default How 'bout this call as a walk off...

U16 BB game, runners on 2nd and 3rd, knotted up 5-5 bottom of 8th (Extras), 2 outs... Defensive coach decides to IBB the 4th hitter (no brainer, right); playoff double elimination game...

Catcher steps out of the catcher's box a bit too early for the PU's liking; result - walk off balk...

I heard about it and could only shake my head (and quietly laugh my ass off)...

I mean, technically he's right... Do you make this call???

No Way do you make that call.
As you said Technically correct but that is a dirty end of a stick to grab

Or, as some have intoned, even if he's right, he's wrong.

I almost busted the stitches in my chest when I just laughed! Ow that hurts.

I am picturing a whole bucket of sh*t and no stick to grab onto in this case. Way to make the game about you, umpire. This is the kind of crap that gives umpires a bad name.

Ha, was at Cooperstown a few weeks ago as an umpire and my partner balked in the winning run because the 12 year old pitcher ran the stop sign.
