    Little League Umpire

    NNNOOOOO!!!

    Well, My hometown, Lemont, IL got elminated last night because of a TERRIBLE CALL!!!!!!!!!!! If you guys didn't see it, Ill set the scene. The score was 4-2 going into the bottom of the 6th (The last inning in little league). The Oregon team had scored 2 runs in the top of the inning. The first batter hit a ground ball up the middle and the 2nd baseman strecthed out for it and threw it to first base. The ball was high and the first baseman had to jump and catch it. His arm swung down and was 1-2 seconds late to tag the Lemont Runner. I was like alrite, good start. THEN THE UMPIRE CALLED HIM OUT!!!! I'll finish why I am so mad later on because I have to change classes, but SO MAD!!!!!!!!!!!



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    Tough break.
    BTW, I just realized your title...I get the feeling that you didn't patiently wait for your title to appear and you were pestering.
    That is funny.

    its a judgment call, dont get too worked about it

    the umpires in the little league world series volunteer their time (i.e. do the games for free) so don't get too excited

    How do ya like them apples?!

    Re: Little League Umpire

    i remember little league.. my mom was our coach and lots of the fathers would get upset by calls on us as we got no respect against the other teams..

    though the last yar i played for her we lost only 1 game all season.. and that was based on some REALLY bad calls on strikes, and outs by the umps..

    i remember even one dad offering to my mom to beat the !#!^# outta the ump.

    btw.. enjoy the title.. mine'lll come some day.
