I am tired of these know it all umpires in travel ball. Some are so defensive you can t question any calls what so ever. I was coaching my daughters 12 u travel ball in Florence,SC. We were on defense and the opposing teams hitter it hit straight down and it was pretty muddy and it stuck. Our catcher picks up the ball and tags her out. The umpire starts yelling foul ball it was in the batters box. It look fair to me. I started questioning it, letting him know some of the batters box is in fair territory. He just told me to be quite, it was a judgement call. I did not scream or yell or cause a scene I just wanted a explaination. I let it go for a couple of innings and try to discuss it quitely on the way to coach 3rd base. He threaten to throw me out again. All he kept saying was it was in the batters box but would not show me where it was. If most umpire would just calm done and not be so defensive we would be better off.
