Saw the game was a funny spot. Doesn’t know much about Baseball but looked great in those Hot Pants!
I’m guessing she’s innocent of all charges.
Good Hands fielding that hot grounder.
I have a feeling that ballgirl is NOT going to hurt the game of baseball...
That’s allowed. It’s a legit play.
It’s pre-season, so it’s just for funsies........
I only opened this link, for the discussion about Baseball rules . . .
Put her on the hot corner.
Here in Pittsburgh they started recruiting girls from local college softball teams to serve as ball girls. And often a lot of them make better plays in the field than the Pirates do.
I was watching a HS Baseball game last night (JV) and 3 umps showed up. I kind of figured 2 would do the game and the other was kind of observing (probably grading?)
Anyhow runners on 1st & 2nd, 1 out the batter hits a pop fly - NOT quite a towering pop up but the ball had some loft and the 2nd baseman cleanly caught the ball.
I turned to the ‘extra’ umpire (by now I did notice he did have an area ‘Umpires ball cap on’) and ALL I said to him was:
“Doesn’t the infield fly rule come in effect anymore”?
It is a question I have been wondering about because the local HS leagues sooner NOT call it most of the time.
So, my question was directed to the ‘Trainer?’ and he looked at me like I had lit into one of the Umps and said “You aren’t supposed to vocally question decisions by the umpires”.
Well I am an old ball player and if I had ‘played’ with his family it would have been his father at the least and probably grandfather.
I said “Lets get something straight. I AM NOT questioning the call. I am NOT getting on an Umpire. I know the rules (no matter how stupid) about ‘picking on’ an Umpire. ALL I want to know ‘FROM THE SUPPOSED SENIOR UMP’ DO they not call Infield Fly Rule in HS anymore’.
That clown actually walked away from me.
Well if this is the attitude of someone that is ‘training’ or evaluating umps, one can see the attitude they may possess.
Of course, on school property, I must remain dignified at ALL times, not only because I am a guest BUT I feel my registered ‘friend’ is safer in my possession than in my vehicle, I can not afford any ‘run ins’....
Another case of make enough rules and we can all become felons after a fashion.
How lovely for those parents who view a baseball game as a wholesome family outing to have these exhibitionist females prancing about on the field. /s
Isn’t a fair ball from the ground that goes into the stands a ground rule double?
