You Make The Call - Fingertips At Home
March 3, 2020 - This is a fun play at home plate. In fact, I can be heard to say, "Wow!", after it came to fruition. I had no obstruction due to the fact that the runner had already chosen her base path towards home plate long before the catcher ever started to come towards the baseline. The best part was the runner's ability to slide in and get her fingertips right on the most rear portion of the plate just before the tag was applied. But that is my take on the play. What would you have called? Would you have signaled obstruction and then safe? Or would you have been just as giddy as me when you realized that you had a front-row view to a great moment on the softball diamond? What's your call? Michael Leavitt - Orem, Utah
