Good afternoon, I am a youth umpire scheduler in Kansas City. If you are in the Nashville area I have a great umpire who has relocated to Nashville and would like to continue calling games. Please reach out to me if you have means to connect with a scheduler in Nashville area -
Kip- I was sitting close to the field and that was the coaches argument. He felt that the ball was thrown and the batter deserved to be on first after being hit by the pitch. The umpires explained that once the Balk was called, the play was dead.

Stray thought after watching Sportscenter top ten. Is there anything in the rules preventing a pitcher from using a softball style windmill delivery? Not sure it could be done from the stretch, I am surprised no one has tried it, with the speed and movement softball pitchers get.
I know Satchel Paige and others windmilled at the start of their deliveries, but it wasn't done for momentum, like the softball delivery.
I wanted to post a video of my leadoff plate appearance in the MSBL World Series at Tempe Diablo Stadium last year but it exceeded the 100mb limit. That is because I struck out by taking 6 straight balls. It should have been a shorter video exept for the fact that the umpire in order to speed up the game called more strikes than he should have. Three more in this at bat. Why do umpires believe that a large strike zone speeds up the game? The only thing poor umpiring like this does is hurt the desire to ever fork out 100s of dollars to participate in tournaments. In the video you can see the catcher move further outside with each call. You also can see the umpire lean over to the outside every time the catcher moves. One person did not move to get to the outside pitch and that was me, the batter. The plate did not move either but for some reason, the umpire and the catcher had their own little cute game going on. After going 3 and 1 on the first four pitches out of the zone, why did the catcher continue to move further away? He knew something that the batter was not aware of. Why would the pitcher want to walk the lead off hitter? Why would he not throw at least one pitch over the plate? The catcher and the umpire conspired to cheat me out of my at bat. Call it what it is. It is cheating.
