National topics / Umpiring
« on: April 23, 2018, 01:08:33 pm »
I was enjoying this walk off win video:

....but something caught my attention.  I know the walk off is proforma and in reality, the home run hitter's run did not win the game but none of the umpires looked to make sure each bag was hit and when the batter came around, the home plate umpire was walking away.  It would be nice for them to dot those i's and cross the t's.

I was adding the Babson triple play video to the site and noticed that Plymouth's Dam Armstrong hit into a triple and double play.  I saw he was 2-4 so withmy math skills, I know that he missed the out cycle.

Has anyone done that - hit into a triple play, double play and a single out for the out cycle?

The ABCA preseason poll is out.  Suspiciously like the final 2013 poll.

http://baseballnews.com/collegiate-baseball-div-3-poll-12-24-13/

Linfield will stay near the top but who is not in the poll that will be in the conversation come May.  I expect Shenandoah is one overlooked team.
