I was out at games both wknds of the SSUSA World Championships - as a player one wknd and as a fan the other. I saw a lot of weak officials. There were also some very good ones. The first wknd at Doc Romeo there was a group of guys that did a hell of a job. I'm not sure where they were from. I was actually at Shadow Rock this past Sun watching Family Stones vs Lasers and myself as well as the group I was with thought the umpire made the correct call at first base in top of open inning. Nor did any of us think that one call changed the game. There
was actually a closer call earlier in the game at first base that went NM way on a double play
ball but we thought the umpire nailed that one too. That crew was very vocal and always hustled. I think there are some very unfair comments being made about the umpires. I caught
a game the first Sat night at Doc Romeo and I have never seen a team complain so much about whether or not strikes were hitting the mat. It was obvious they were but because that team was losing it was all the umpires fault. Grow up guys. Nice job umpires!
