YOU Make the Call (4) Double Header --> Called


"I've never questioned the integrity of an umpire. Their eyesight, yes." - Leo Durocher

I've found the last few challenges were far too easy for this crowd, so this week, I've decided double up -- the first one is fairly simple and straight forward, but hopefully the second will prove to be a bit more, er, challenging.


You know the drill -

Read the full size version of the two scenarios and share your call. Points will be given for accuracy AND for citing specific rules (per the Diamond Challenge decision), ties will go in favor of the quickest response.

To make it a little more interesting, I'll give up a 2001 Diamondbacks World Series Replica Ring to the ump who makes the best calls over the next five weeks, and announce a winner on / around the start of the World Series.
