Game review |
1st inning Denver Stars player missed 3rd base, Bay Area appealed, the Colorado state director called Stro to get the ruling, Stro said appeal was illegal. That took about 30 minutes.
2nd inning Denver Stars player hits a sac fly to score runner from 3rd. The batter carries the bat to first base. Bay Area appeals again saying runner can’t advance because batter touched base with bat. But the Colorado state director wanted the batter to be ejected for some reason. Called Stro again to see if ejection was warranted saying the batter threw the bat from 1B but the umpire said different so the player which was the Denver Stars pitcher stayed in the game. This took another 30 minutes
3rd inning Bay Area hits into a inning ending double play, Denver Stars pitcher rolls ball back to the mound in a unusual way. Colorado state director (not the umpires) eject Stars pitcher for “ MOCKERY” to the game.
4th inning Star batter hits Bay Area pitcher in the helmet
They go to check the bat but the director doesn’t have the tester.
6th inning Stars pinch hit for backup pitcher then put him back on defense, he throws a strike Bay Area appeals and says pitcher can’t be back in the game. 3rd pitcher for stars comes in throws a strike to the same batter and Stars says that batter should be out. State director makes the call 15 minutes later
Game almost took 3 hours!!!
