Why is it that there is always some ass hole that is never satisfied. When we start a game there are five NEW balls in the tube. AS the game progresses there seems to be quite a few players that propel the ball over the fence. When that ball is retrieved it is put back into the tube.My job as an umpire is to make sure that the ball is playable and not feel like a sock (what ever that is)? There are some players that can put the ball to a test and there are some that could not buy a hit if they try. I do not believe you would want the managers to bring a case of balls to every game just to satisfy a pissed off player who gives a name like Ball Police. You are welcomed to check my ball bag anytime I'm behind the plate. If you want to see some old balls, I started umpiring in Norristown in 1959.
