Happy Fathers Day, babbi! Aren’t you glad you weren’t?
Watch as NC State’s Evan Justice offers a cursor that appears in front of the plate, past catcher Luca Tresh, and in … Well, you know where it is now.
Yeah, it doesn’t look good. And I bet it doesn’t feel good either.
If you are a lightweight or a lightweight adult, everything hurts. Even with a cup, a baseball at the nuts is, um, let’s just say, an unpleasant experience. The audible moans from ump should give them. Plus, when that commenter saw the nut shot slowly, it sounded like he was witnessing something disgusting.
Yesterday afternoon, NC State defeated the referee and Stanford in the first round of the University World Series. The final score is 10 to 4. Needless to say, the referee would be fine. So it’s also a win, I think?
I haven’t felt all that bad about a university referee so far. About two weeks ago, a skinny referee (grumpy in short) had to ruin the fun on a grand slam in a regional NCAA game. The college ump shouted at a boy to play the basics while admiring his bomb. Chill, man. Let the guy enjoy his dinger.
Hopefully this ump can get a well deserved break at his Omaha hotel or anywhere he stays. He earned the right to put his feet up, freeze, rest, and take a day or two to get back on the field.
NC State will face Vandy next. Stanford will acquire Arizona, a Pac-12 competitor. Hopefully, going forward, baseballs will be the only balls hit in the tournament.
