    "I was wrong. I didn't understand the situation and over-reacted. No one is tossed. Let's play ball" Said no umpire ever.

      can they retract an ejection? serious question. not a big baseball rules guy tbh.

      @Harsh Not in a regular season game, but this is spring, I have to imagine if everybody put their heads together and decided to retract the ejection J.T could have stayed in the game.

      41Brother 2 months ago +134

      ​@Results Hazy It's wild that MLB didn't do something to fix that since there are so many elections over little silly ass things and simple misunderstandings that these umpires seriously need to be held accountable for.
      And now they've given them even more of a ego boost to be able to call violations for literally no reason and claim a batter or pitcher wasn't ready even they clearly were

      @Harsh rule or not. When I was trained to be a little league ump as a teenager they said stand on your call. Make it with confidence and move one. If you look weak or unsure for a second they’ll run all over you. Regular season it’s a rule I believe but I’d think you were a worse ump for taking a mistake back than just being confident

      If anything, this guy has proven he has what it takes to be an ump in the big leagues. There isn't a position in any professional sport that has a thin of a skin as baseball umpires. How they manage to sleep at night astounds me

    The worst thing about this isn't even the Ump tossing JT for no reason or that this is JT's first ejection.
    The worst part is that the ump won't get in any deep trouble for it if we look back at all the umps that have done awful things and THAT is scary.

    The fact that the Ump was "not availible" after the game for questions and then they stood up for him as well is a problem. Realmuto handled this way better than anyone else would have. I'm surprised no one on the Phillies didn't say something to the Ump like this is why you'll be stuck in the Minors again, for petty calls like that!

  • Kedo

      @Adam Rickman I'm curious if there is an instance where an umpire tosses a player, and then is persuaded by that player to put him back into the game. Plenty of instances when it would have made sense to do, but it would set a weird precedent where players would then really try to argue their case rather than just yell and get mad

      Skip Rock, Jr. 2 months ago +53

      @Oldredeye4 Yeah. Pitchers have to be comfortable with the ball since they are going to be throwing it 90+MPH and can potentially hit and injure the batter. That ump probably has nerd rage or something. A simple miscommunication triggered the crap out of him.

      What's done is done. They can't un-eject a player. And I think he kind of did realize his mistake when he said "welp...idk". It was too late by then. It sucks, he should've handled it differently, but hopefully he's able to realize he was being too ego-centric and can do better. It's just spring training so it doesn't really matter too much.

  • crim BruhIff
    crim BruhIff 2 months ago

    I think what’s really going to speed the game up is by eliminating innings and implementing 15-min quarters like in football and basketball. Visiting team get to bat first like in the current format.
    If MLB doesn’t want to do that then the alternative is to eliminate extra innings and introduce a tie after the 10th inning. The game is already drag on too long for multiple extra innings.

      Actually, it’s dumb calls like this that will move an umpire out of AAA and into the majors. More important than the call itself is sticking to it. That’s what the union looks for. Having an unflappable and unconcerned expression comes with time.

    • Daniel Bailey

      @Daniel Bailey You clearly don't know other sports, hell, Tennis alone is one where refs are challenged by players, even assaulted by players and fans, and are still a part of the game despite there being camera tech now. Why? Because that's the fucking sport, if you want to remove the refs, just make a new sport without refs and call it idk, Yeetsball.
      You don't understand that to the players, the refs are PART of the experience, for the audience too. The arguments, the wrong calls, hell, jomboy probably has to be grateful for bad calls from refs for a large part of his viewing platform. I don't understand this advocacy for removing umps, it's like trying to just remove rules and parts of a game you particularly find disagreeable, but missing the reason why those parts were deemed necessary to the game for so long at this point.
      It's because if you removed the umps, you're just watching a video game larp.

  • Sam Dickenson

    This is one reason where I believe ejections need to be allowed to be overturned. It's weird. Baseball is supposed to be three strikes and you're out, but when it comes to ejections, it's one ball and you're out, no take backsies.

    I always wondered if there are any consequences for the umps when they do something like this.

      This is one of only three ejections in all of spring training and it's being reported on widely since the regular season has yet to start. Realmuto probably doesn't even care about it at this point.

      100% agreed. With the exception of "TV Teddy" Valentine in college basketball, no other sport has officials that make the game about themselves quite like baseball does and it need to stop. Every single year we get a whole host of rule changes to try to make the game more appealing to the masses. How about we stop letting the worst umpires in the game steal the show on a regular basis?! I know most of them don't do it, and most of them do great work in a very difficult job, but then you have clowns like this guy or Angel Hernandez that seem to go out of their way to steal the spotlight and they do it without any kind of accountability.

    Why is the league so quick to make rule changes "for the betterment of the sport and fan's overall enjoyment" yet refuse to make umps accountable for being atrociously bad egomaniacs. Better umpires definitely fall into the fan enjoyment category.

      He is a AAA umpire on the verge of potentially becoming a part time umpire in the majors. For those umpires, Spring Training is the chance for MLB to evaluate them in game situations dealing with MLB pitching and players. My guess is that umpire will spend yet another year in AAA.

    It sucks that umpires aren't allowed to uneject players or managers. I mean, maybe it'd open up a whole can of worms, but in a situation like this, I think he would have retracted it if he had the power to. Or at least I would hope so. Otherwise...DAMN the fragile ego on him.

    I caught for 28 years and worked blue upside inside outside etc. 99% of them are good umpires that make bad calls now and then. But that 1% totally suck every single time. In my entire career I was tossed once for drawing a batters box after the hitter clearly stepped well beyond the front line and when I pointed it out to blue he said, the batters box is 4’x 8’…..I lost my mind

    I love the face at the end. He was like. "Oops. Now everyone is going to remember me for this"

      @Sofie Nielsen Right! Let's hope this little window into his temperament (which obviously is too brittle to be a good ump) is noticed and acted upon properly by the authorities. I know...fat chance...but a man's got to have hope.

    As soon as an umpire reverses a decision during a game, it opens Pandora’s box. Umpires will not reverse a decision voluntarily no matter how ridiculous because it means they could be called to do the same later on.

    The ump thought they were messing with him. Then he got embarrassed. Should’ve said something first or give them the chance to explain. They really need to stop letting pitcher decide what ball they want and just make it where they use the one they are given.

      The thing is, in this situation it's funny.
      But what if that happened in the World Series or something. It can have real world effects. There either needs to be a process (maybe, two umpires have to agree?), or a way to reverse the call (and the umpires need to be respected enough that admitting a mistake is something they can feel comfortable doing).

    Honestly, the players knew he fucked up, the ump knew he fucked up, and they all took it with good class and good sportsmanship.
    Hopefully, the Ump has learned to set his pride and ego aside and make calls based on the play, not how the play makes you feel.

      That's cuz it's spring training, which Realmuto really doesn't need, and he knows he's not in the wrong. And there's nothing that can be done about it, so why fight it and look like an asshole?
