Being a youth umpire is a lose/lose proposition. No matter which call you make, it’s always going to piss off one group of overly emotional, overly invested parents.
One youth softball umpire actually deserves every ounce of ridicule that ends up getting thrown his way after making one of the worst blown calls in the history of sports at any level.
The egregious call came when a batter laid down a bunt and clearly legged out a single. Even though the batter beat out the throw to first by about six steps, the ump incredibly punches her out with the certainty of a 30-year MLB umpire. It’s really remarkable.
People give youth sports officials way too much grief, but this guy deserves it. Time to find another hobby other than ruining kids dreams, bruh.
Check out the blown call of blown calls by the Don Denkinger of the youth softball circuit.
