Posted on: August 3, 2011

It’s a tough job being an umpire. Level 4 ump, Eldon Dunseith in studio with Norman James.

Yes the St. Thomas players came charging on the field after the out call was made, because they knew the ball was in right field. What isn’t shown on the video is the other coaches of the Tomcats sending their players back to the dugout. The initial reaction was to run on the field but they were restrained and went back to their dugout. If you ask me the runner from second would have scored on the play if iplay hadnt been stopped, therefore I think St. Thomas had a legitimate beef with the official call when all was said and done.

No doubt. Like Norm said, wrong place wrong time. I’d bet St. Thomas would have been just as pissed off. Hard to blame any venom within the field of play. But the nonsense following was just rude. We are humans though. Don’t expect much from us.

St. Thomas would have had more reason to be upset than Etobicoke if for some unknown reason the umpires were satisfied with making the wrong call

First of all the call was correctly reversed as almost everyone agrees.
Second, the Etobicoke team and coaches went way, way overboard.

But, for those who suggest that the St Thomas team was completely sportsmanlike during the play, watch the video. Did you not see numerous players running out onto the field to protest the call right when it happened? How far might they have gone if it wasn’t overturned?

were they supposed to just stay there and watch?What did you expect them to do?
