I’m not saying that you must agree with everything, however, disagree with class. Umpires will miss calls, have erratic strike zones, misinterpret rules, etc. but remember, we all make mistakes. Shake your head, exhale deeply, talk to the person next to you about the bad call but then move on to the next pitch.
The National High School Baseball Coaches Association and Baseball Rules in Black and White’s goal is to build a long overdue bridge, built with improved communication, mutual respect and enhanced rule knowledge. This is the beginning step in our effort to create a bridge between Umpires and Coaches that can expand the respect of a handshake throughout every game.
