Umpires Look Horrible Blowing these Ridiculous Bad Baseball Strike Calls


Hi I’m Cameron Sloan and I’m Chris
Sloan and this is bad baseball and today we’re gonna be talking about bad
baseball calls let’s check it out! All right so bad baseball calls Cam you
had a couple of bad baseball calls in your life? I think more than a couple I
mean those might just be opinionated but I mean I mean like yesterday I totally
beat out like I grounded the first. Mmm you’re probably right
I’m pretty sure he was safe! I think that was a bad call yesterday, but that’s the
way baseball go as Ron Washington used to say. So you deal with it and move on right yeah. All right so we got some video today,
fortunately Cameron hasn’t seen these or had the opportunity to see these yet. So
I put these together so you’re definitely gonna get his first reaction
and then we’ll have some good comment about these. I think these are you can
probably find these pretty easily out there but we figured we put them all
together for you in one nice little place and just let you see what it looks
like. These are not MLB videos these are gonna be youth sports instead so you’ll
see that you know all of these come from Little League games or stuff like that.
So you wanna check out the first one? All right let’s do it, here we go all right
boy let’s see that one again that that’s a pitch out that one is crazy like does
he not did he not see the catcher move over for the pitch out I mean I’m not
sure like it’s pretty bad in this like you can see he’s set up a good six to
eight inches outside the play he’s like he’s not even behind he’s in the other
batter’s box yeah yeah we’ve got this very flamboyant
play call they’re like watch that one one more time and man that’s that’s crazy
yeah a battery like he turns around and looks at him and it’s like are you
kidding me like this kids are 12 years old so this is Little League World
Series they’re not gonna get all crazy they they know they’re on ESPN yeah and
but yeah wow he just looks look man that has to be one of the worst like I like I
see some bad ones and usually they’re close but this was pretty blatant when
you get the video evidence and always makes it fun yeah like when you can stop
and see the frame yeah he’s still holding it and he’s it literally looks
like he’s set up a foot outside of the plate right mmm that’s pretty bad all
right let’s check out the next one here that we got okay this is a high school
game we got the same thing going here now watch this one in slow-mo it curves
out it says it’s not even a fast ball its curves oh it’s a cutter or slot it
looks like a cutter and it moves away from him or a slide or maybe a slider
yeah I think and it’s probably more of a slider and it moves cuts away and it’s
clearly the catcher frames it well you know pulls it back in but it’s clearly
outside like you can even see him grab it and pull it over yeah watch the video
yeah now and I get it you know they’re not gonna be perfect every time but in
high school the strike zone supposed to get a little tighter yeah that that’s
keeping it too loose in my opinion you know there’s there supposed to be a
little bit more skilled in the craft by the time you get to high school then
again it depends on your own part too though sometimes like yesterday or the
day before they were the day before I guess when you were pitching he was man
not given very many strikes and then the next day they’re giving a lot more
little hype and strike zone yeah yeah all right let’s see what we got on the
next one here all right so I’ll set this video up a little bit so this is going
to be so this looks like some random dad got
pulled out of the crowd to be the umpire unfortunately and because it clearly
he’s in jeans and yeah shirt and he does not look very official even though he’s
got shin guards on but anyway I’m gonna this there’s actually three different
calls he makes and we’ll let the whole video run here watch it and then come
back and comment on it or we can stop it anytime you’ve got questions but let’s
just check this one out of you first then drops watch watch real close sees
Footwear he tries to get out of the way and it hits him that’s that say that’s the second one
now watch there’s one more here we go let’s get this third one in so you can
see this is another bad call hey this is three in a row folly Minh
called strike all right dad just I know this dad just needs to like get out of
there yeah Teli tell you in that whole video if you go find that whole video
the dad on there it gets pretty pretty upset he has to leave the key has to
leave the scene essentially because it’s too much RAM to handle he just didn’t
take it you just need to tell your pop hey you know you’re not the greatest
umpire so let’s just get someone else all right so this is probably my
favorite you got a great shot of it you can see
the ball all the way through so I’ll just let this and play and you tell me
what you think about it why did you catch that let’s watch it again
way outside strike three call look at it mate oh this where it was dude just
again I’d like that kid right there little man’s like hey dude I know where
it was let me show you it was right over here but hey he wants to see what’s in
if it’s gonna be a strike he wants everyone else have that strike right
yeah he wants him to be consistent he walks over to the other batter’s box
that runs his bat right down the line with the ball win man I mean you know he
knows where the strike zone is yeah that is way outside of it and that kids
probably eight years old man yeah you know and I guess my problem with this
one is I love the kid you know okay I really don’t he you know you probably
shouldn’t do that to the umpire let’s let’s be honest he’s eight you know
don’t show the umpire but the reality is you’re teaching kids at this age to
swing the bat you know at the right pitches okay and even if they widen the
zone if this zone was all the way to the chalk line a chalk line for these
younger batters right just so the pitcher has a shot okay
he he’s wet it’s still even way it’s outside of that like that yeah a little
bit of all like yeah it’s way outside so I don’t know what the strike zone has
been defined as something further that I mean the reality is you have to have
parameters or points of where you define it as an umpire so you know where to
make that call yeah and if you keep even how much further in can I go before I
say okay no that’s too far right and I mean considering these kids like they’re
eight years old so they’re the length of their bat length of his back he’s not
even gonna be able to reach that if he swings at it like exactly like his
options are a ground by a weak ground ball to third base if he actually puts
that into play like come on that’s yeah that’s not even fair to him so the kid
made the right decision in not swinging whether he gets rung up or not right I
mean if in fact most of these I think they all took the right guard and when
the video goes to show us that the umpires made a very poor decision oh
yeah so well hey tell us about any bad calls in your games if you’ve got video
of some really bad calls we’d love to hear about them
if you’ve got some MLB ones you know post them in the comments there’s plenty
of those out there as well I think the one that I found the most interesting
was one of the Rangers playoffs games that ended with a strikeout that was
obviously I know that one yeah no that was that’s a good one so anyway yeah
post them in the comments we’d love to hear it hey don’t forget if you like
this video and like our other videos be sure to subscribe and like the videos
for us let us know other videos and things we can put together for you guys
thanks we’ll see you next time you

  1. The first one is littery the wrost call I ever seen did someone check that umps bank account to see if he's a gambler

  2. Some of these are very bad calls, but before shaming all of these umps you should actually go try it yourself because it is much harder than it looks

  3. Hope you feel better big boy. Sitting in the bleachers and griping about umpires is pretty cowardly. Gear up and get out there.

  4. For a parent to be pulled from the crowd and be a ump is against the rules I am a ump my self and this is terrible

  5. 1. first one is just voulnteer umpires who dont really get the proper training. however we are going getting front end view it looks very bad from this angel how about was it?

  6. 2. catcher played of well i am assuming umpire didn't see the move of the "glove" if i see a move of glove i wouldn't be calling strike three. I ususally tell them not to move it to much once you move the glove than we know you know it isnt a strike even without glove move shouldn't of been called base of angel it could of hit the corner of plate and went out. its not where ball lands but where it crosses the plate. another aspect the game could of been just crushing game anything close was going to be consider a stirke. I personally when we call 9-10 we are told to have liberal strike zone. if a child cannot hit it i will not call it once awhile you give a call just to try boost the pitcher. I seen some great 10 you pitchers and batter hitting/pitching than 12u

  7. 3. 1 and 3 are pretty close to what he was calling sure above letters but you can't fault him has he has no real training. he for sure wrong on 2 the batter cannot lean into pitch put his elbow out and i think he was thinking he was trying to stop the ball with his foot. however you have to make attempt to get out of the way. this why i want to see you guys umpire cause i want to see all the bad calls you make. so we can post on youtube.. you can talk about it what you learn and what you did wrong.

  8. I share one of my calls i am still proud to this day. so 11-12 years old… second base first base women through ball to second… i think shortstop was trying to get ball but didn't get it. runner tied up with feilder at bag obustricion had my hand out for it my parnter called her at third than notice i had the call. since it was a thrown ball not a hit ball that why it was called. if she wasn't tied up to the bag… she would of got to third without being out. there another one where wasn't much agumrent 9-10 shortstop just standing on second base… its delay call and even the other team saw her teammate do it said shortstop was on it. she was awarded third base.

  9. As Tanner wrote: "Some of these are very bad calls, but before shaming all of these umps you should actually go try it yourself because it is much harder than it looks". The umpire with the shin guards outside of his pants obviously was an untrained volunteer. Most likely, the league had to use him because they had no other choice. It's in large part because of disrespectful parents and players like you why there are not enough umpires around to officiate games. As a LL and HS umpire trainer, I can't begin to tell you how many times I've tried to recruit a parent only to have them say "…no way… why would I want to subject myself to that kind of verbal abuse". It's sad that you feel the need to mock and shame these umpires instead of being positive and teaching your son and others to be a bit more understanding and respectful.

  10. Here's a thought, why don't you two ass holes put on the uniform and see if you can do any better? You both sit on your asses and poke fun of amateurs who at least have the balls to do the job!
