MLB suspends, fines umpire Fieldin Culbreth

Recommended Posts

Amazing that four umpires and a major league manager didn't know a rule that I've known since I was a child.


However, it reminds me of the time when Mauch was managing an Angels game and the opposing team's catcher (Tigers' Matt Nokes?) used his mask to retrieve a dropped pitch that rolled a few feet away from him. Mauch went out and told the umpires that's a rules violation and actually told them where they could find it in the rule book since he had the damn thing memorized. After conferring, they figured out that there's actually a rule that says a fielder cannot use any piece of equipment other than his glove to field a ball and the runner who was standing on first was awarded second base.
