School Fined After Ump Beaned During Game

Yep. They didn't like the way he was calling the game, so they called a high heater and...

Go watch the video. It's pretty obvious. Morons!

I'm sorry if i offend anyone but that video is absolutely hilarious! ;-D

Obviously it would be another case if the ump got hurt, but funny is funny.

The catcher is a pretty horrible actor. :-b

I haven't seen this video yet, but who didn't have the old pitcher-misses-the-pitch-out-sign-and-throws-a-fast-ball-down-the-middle play in high school? I can't remember ever doing it (at least while I was pitching), but it was always an option if we got too upset at an ump.

Is it that common? If it's just another part of the game, like a coach kicking dirt on an ump, then it's not that big a deal I suppose. But if it is common then why is it such a big story?

Because this one was so obvious. The intent was obvious. The catcher moved out of the way of the ball, instead of just missing it by an inch or two with his glove and being a little more discrete.

Probably because of the horrible acting job of the catcher. Normally, I don't think there would be any way to conclusively say that it was done on purpose, but this catcher just doesn't sell it at all.

Pretty interesting, then, that one split second decision can effect this kid's entire career and life. :-°

Bush-league. Maybe the next time a hitter is upset with the strike zone he can accidentally let the bat come out of his grip in his follow-through. :-t
