sad that we need to always talk about this topic, but some good discussion. I guess 1 thing that MP was saying about the code of conduct always being stressed, and then DW and Doc saying different umps have different levels of tolerance, my response to that is every ump should have the same level of tolerance. Don't let 1 ump not do anything about it on 1 field and then on a different field, that ump ejects the same player who got away with it on the other field. Everything must be consistent across the board, ZERO TOLERANCE. I ump also and no matter how much you hustle, keep the zone consistent, guys will complain. I have had many talks with catchers on the teams that have guys that whine all the time and I always say that I wish I could make fun of players who miss groundballs, flyballs, get a cookie pitch and pop up, etc...have the tables turn and see how the players like it. Bottom line, umps are using their best judgement to make a call they see. every bang bang play you will always have 1 team happy and 1 mad, but we have all had that happen to us since we started playing T-Ball as kids. going to be a fun end of the season between the top teams and looking forward to seeing it all play out.
