Hey, I don't agree with every call, but getting mad or yelling about it does absolutely nothing. Accept it and move on. You don't have to agree with it, but ...
Pull the ump aside nicely between innings and ask him about it, they will talk to you and tell you what they saw. You can say what you saw. Just my personal opinion.
Pretty soon, there are gonna be no more umpires. You can't pay them enough to get abused and yelled at. The Montco umpire chapter has 19 umpires, including me, so that means we have 18 umpires that are responsible for covering
2 games a night for the men, 1 game a night for the women, at least 3 games at different fields for upper Merion Coed, another 2-3 at different fields for Plymouth and another 4 or so at different fields every Sunday for Coed. You do the math. If anybody put there thinks they can do a better job umpiring games, please sign up. It's not as easy as it looks.
There is a shortage all over the state and country. Thanks, Steve
