  • Dirty Play in Little League World Series

    If I was that first baseman's coach he would have gotten pulled out of the game and chewed out for this garbage.

      If I had been the ump, he would have been gone

        The problem is whether or not the umpire saw the shove. Some umpires are determined not to see illegal stuff. If the defending boy's coach saw this, he should have pulled the kid. Incompetent First Basemen are a menace.

        My daughter broke her ankle sliding her Senior year of High School. About five years later she decided to play a little Coed Softball with the people from work. She hit the ball well and ran to First Base, but the chippy playing there was standing there with her back foot on the back of the bag! (Illegal, for the uniformed readers) She tried to not hit the chippy and tried to jump around her. She landed on her good ankle/foot and broke that one! I was not happy. I told her if she EVER decided to play again (and I hoped she would not!) she should kick the offending player in that ankle bone that sticks out! "Daddy! That would seriously hurt someone!" "Better someone else than you, my dear!"

        She is 40 now and has broke both ankles at least twice!

          That was a cheap shot, very unsportsmanlike by the first baseman. It looks like the base runner was able to hold back the tears though..there is no crying in baseball after all.

            Pretty cheap, though unfortunately probably not the dirtiest thing going on in the tournament - also it is learned behavior.

              A good thump on the back of his head will teach him.

              Just make sure the ump doesn't see you do it .

              The way to get him is get your biggest guy to stomp his foot when going to first. Plus... he does have to come up to bat .

                Not nearly as bad as the girls tourney... where the Washington team lost on purpose telling the batters to miss or bunt every time.

                Just to avoid a tough game in the semi-finals.

                  The Washington team tanking to keep a tough Iowa team that they had already lost to from advancing. Incredibly, the people in charge declared that those two teams would play an extra game to determine who made the playoffs!

                  Really?! The Washington team tanks and still has a chance to go on?! Fortunately justice prevailed and Iowa won the game, but the other ladies should have been DQed, and their coaches permanently banned from participating in the organization.

                    Most double elimination formats are:

                    Team A beats Team D
                    Team B beats Team C

                    Team A (1-0) beats Team B (1-0)
                    Team C (0-1) beats Team D (0-1) Team D eliminated with second loss.

                    Team A (2-0) Bye
                    Team B (1-1) beats Team C (1-1) Team C eliminated with second loss.

                    Team A (2-0) faces Team B (2-1) with Team B needing to defeat Team A twice to advance and Team A only needing one win to advance.

                    What sort of double elimination format where they using where a team can lose yet advance?

                      They played an extra game because of the shenanigans of the Washington team.

                      Also I am not sure that it wasn't pool play... with the better record team advancing to the finals.

                        I did some checking and, yes, it was pool play. Given the tie breaker rules, the Washington team throwing a game allowed the Utah team to miss advancing to the next round.

                        I still fail to understand how they, Washington, were not DQed and their coaches banned permanently.
