I had umpire doing that. I already tried to talk to him twice about the rule 9.02 c. He goes to his boss saying he can. He also said he didn't what the rule said.
After that i did not want to continue the game with him, told the assigner about it. The assigner apologize and was glad i stick with it.
close play at first with a runner on first. second baseman dives and i called the runner out. other coach comes to talk to the plate umpire,
edit it was baberuth, the other coach tried to appeal it cause he was not following rules. the guy didn't know what he was doing.
Hack another umpire i work with who been doing it for 7 years he agreed. I like some guy that i work with.
The plate umpire tells that is his call. wrong that is my call in else i am over at shortstop with two runners on. He also had me in the wrong spot.
He never even talk to me over the play that's how he went around the rule. i was not pleased.
Guy name Ron tells that judgement calls are us and don't bother coming out.
Sorry for being long. But i am glad i said something anything similar happen to you all?
