    Still falls on the home plate umpire, too. The catcher is not automatically granted the challenge just because he asks for it. The home play ump has to ask for it. The whole crew sucks.

    Exactly, although in my 25 yrs. of umpiring HS/Semi-Pro ball in FL, can't ever recall refusing a "request." Catchers & HP umps usually have a good "working" relationship, If not, your insurance rates wouldn't be affordable! :)

    DBU Radio just stated that LHP Carraway will NOT be available for Game 2 (if necessary)...that's a relief.

    I’ve only ever seen it when the home plate ump already made the call, so if the catcher still appeals to first base it usually doesn’t go over well.

    Ya, no official likes to be "staged."

    Normally in your "Pre-game Conference" w/ your crew, you review this call, thus allowing everyone to be on the same page. If a catcher went to a base umpire w/o going thru the Plate Umpire, the Base Umpire just ignores the catcher...which makes the catcher look like a fool! If the Plate Umpire is a "nice guy," he'll just step & point toward the Base Ump and yell, "Did he go?" Many times, the Base Umpire will simply affirm the Plate Umpire's intial call if he perceives the catcher as a "chump!"
