Is it not legal to run through first base? A terrible ump ejected a guy from the game and all he did was run through the base. There was an off target throw that caused the first baseman to come off the bag and my teammate just kept running straight and the first baseman was in his way and he ran right through him too. He is our best player and probably the best player in the league. We only had 9 players so that brought us down to 8 players and we only had two outfielders and so all these easy out fly pop-ups to the outfield were dropping and that is how they scored 5 runs. Also everytime that he normally got up it was an automatic out so that cost at probably least another 3 runs because of runners in scoring position and he is a great hitter. My mom taped the game and I watched that play 15 times and never saw any lower of the shoulder (as the ump said). Is there anything that can be done since we have it on tape? Probably not.
Also this ump said he was doing it for our protection but yet after that their pitcher threw at my at least 3 times and he only had 6 pitches against me. It may have been 4 pitches he threw at me because there was another one that was inside and came close to hitting me but unlike the other three they weren’t at my head. He threw at me 2-3 times in my first at bat and the next time I got up I told the ump to watch because he was going to throw at me and sure enough the first pitch hits me in the upper back. What did the ump do? Nothing. He didn’t even call time for
me or ask me if I was okay.
They ended up winning by one. They should’ve lost but I got to full count with this guy and gave him a fast ball right down the middle that he just watched go by and he walked. There was another one right down the middle earlier in the count that he called a ball. There were 2 outs and it was the last inning. The next guy came up and had this easy out pop-up but since we only had 2 outfielders it dropped and 2 runs scored.
We now have to win 7 games in a row in the next 4 days. We have three good pitchers that can easily beat every team except two (one of the two we can’t easily beat we beat 6-3 last week but we won’t have the fresh pitching we had then) so we could still get deep in the tournament. If we win 4 then we will get third. This sucks.
