I laugh everytime i seea curveball get caught right over the middle of the plate belt high and the parents complaing about it not being a strike haha. if its caught belt high over hte middle of the plate its more than likely high and inside.....

Same could be said for Schmitt's curveball. He threw some beautiful curves that appeared to drop right over the plate that were called balls as well. It all evens out.

As for errors and giving away runs, how many of the 15 that HN had in Monday's first game were giveaways? You could make a case that every run HN had in that game was handed to them either by errors or misjudged fly balls.

My point is that breaks - be it calls, errors, whatever - are part of the game. Officials have to make judgements, kids commit errors or miss shots or miss tackles or drop balls or make a base running mistake or.....well, you get the picture.

I wasn't making an excuse. I was just saying the umps screwed them. And pladson wasn't even throwing soft. Almost every pitcher throws with an arc in high school baseball. Those were some pretty nice pitches though. Great job to pladson and all the Hatton-Northwood players, they did great

I also agree with that. I love watching those parents, that don't even know what the pitchers throwing, complaining about things like that.

As a general rule, it is not a good idea to critisize umps. It is a tough job and no game is ever going to be 'perfect' from a fan's perspective. About the only way to remedy the situation is to figure out a way to apply to become a ref and then you can have a bit more control over the calls. I would suggest to anyone to become a ref. The state needs more and though it may seem as though they get a raw deal with criticism, I've heard the job can be very rewarding.
