Good tip. Sometimes when we delay we hear the comment that "Blue" can't make up its mind. I also like the tip of reading the label on the catcher's glove before making a call.


I have had the tendancy to be too quick to make a call, only to watch the 2nd baseman drop the ball on a force play. Embarrasing to say the least. This is a good mechanic to slow me down.
