Olivia Richardson-Feldman did a good job umpiring behind the plate. Generally a good and consistent zone, except for two pitches called strikes that were over the batter's head. She handled situations well, though she does need some work in being able to describe and enforce out of play lines, and reminding batters to stay in their own team's on-deck circle while an opposing pitcher is warming up.
Harrison Novack struggled umpiring the bases today. He was fine on the obvious calls, but most of his calls were way too fast - making his call before a play had completed and he could see whether or not a fielder had caught a ball. There was also an ugly incident that he handled poorly. My #7 hit a ball which the first baseman tried to catch but he dropped, and #7 got on base. #7 later tried to advance after a pitch had been thrown. Rather than making a call at second base, Harrison called time without making a call. The two umpires got together and eventually decided the runner was out. I requested time and went out and asked Harrison what he saw that made him call the out. Harrison said the runner should not have been on base at all because the first baseman caught the ball, and he was calling time to call attention to that to the plate umpire. Eventually we got together with both umpires and decided that the runner at first was legitimate but that the out at second would stand. So Harrison allowed a play to happen and an out call be registered while he was trying to call time. That will need to be addressed with training.
