    Softball happy thoughts

    How do you fix this blown call?

    First, the umpire in question readily admitted he blew the call. Second, he made plenty more mistakes. The situation Semifinal USA Softball rules tourney game, two outs, runners at 1st and 2nd (largely inconsequential to the play). Batter has two strikes, and lays down a two-strike bunt...
