Comment on Ejection Epidemic Can Be Solved With Action by Steve Montgomery http://baseballnews.com/ejection-epidemic-can-solved-action/#comment-113897 Thu, 01 Mar 2018 17:10:59 +0000 http://baseballnews.com/?p=10494#comment-113897 I have been to numerous college games over the past two years as my son is a college ball player. It isn’t just a lack of desire to actually call the strike zone, but a lack of consistency in calling balls and strikes. Every person that has ever tried to umpire knows how difficult it is to call balls and strikes. Today’s umpire needs to identify what their strike is and then consistently call that zone. Also this idea of lining up in the slot is ridiculous. There is no possible way for umpires to call the outside of the plate when they are line up behind the batter. I see this all the time!!! Last and not least is this seemingly desire to show up players. I see this way to often. Three balls on the batter, pitch is thrown no call from the umpire. Batter waits briefly for a call then starts to run down to first sssuming ball four. After 3-4 steps down to first you get a strike call from the umpire. Happens multiple times a game. To me these are major contributors to what I see as why there is so much trouble between umpires, players, and coaches.

Comment on Commentary by Danoh http://baseballnews.com/commentary/#comment-113624 Thu, 28 Dec 2017 10:39:27 +0000 http://diane.pairsite.com/?page_id=509#comment-113624 I agree that this is a multifaceted problem with many roads that lead to potential injuries. The one thing I notice is the lack of throwing ability of many players including infielders, outfielders, and catchers. Let me explain: As a kid that grew up in the 60’s and 70″s we would go out to the backyard and play whiffle ball. We would mimic Major Leaguers that threw side arm, 3/4 , overhand, and submarine. We would then play football and throw like Joe Willie Namath, Johnny U, Len Dawson and Darrel Lomonica. The next day we would play basketball and bounce pass like Jerry West and throw the deep outlet pass like Russell or Wilt. Now fast forward to today with kids that only play one sport and they look goofy throwing a football, or playing basketball. The end result shows up in the poor throwing mechanic I see today. The ability to throw, especially other types of balls, helps develop a sense of body mechanics that can help a player adjust so that pain and effort is minimized.

He could remember your name the first day of class. Also, if you played in his softball class you had to tryout and get drafted. The only activity class I ever took where people who graduated came back to play. The only other coach that could fill an auditorium was John Wooden. His clinics were priceless.

I was there with Coach in 1990. I played for him and was mentored by him. There are so many more great stories and memories. There are so many coaches influencing athletes today in a positive way because of Coach. He lives on via those that learned from him. Great man, great coach, great father, great husband and the list goes on.

Miss coach but speak his words daily.

Comment on Incredible Story Of Troy’s Chase Smartt by Charla Beauchamp http://baseballnews.com/incredible-story-troys-chase-smartt/#comment-112588 Mon, 01 May 2017 19:35:50 +0000 http://baseballnews.com/?p=9547#comment-112588 My son Caleb is a bilateral cochlear implant kid. We met with Chase at a recent Troy game. He was amazing with Caleb. So gentle and so sweet. They played catch and practiced batting. Caleb found a new hero that day. Chase is a great role model for Caleb. We can’t wait to see him play again soon. His story is such an inspiration to Caleb, and I am sure so many others. Coach Smartt was a wonderful host and super helpful as an experienced cochlear parent.
