never heard of this. NEVER!
« Topic Start: July 03, 2011, 10:51:47 PM »
link below...find the headline on this page that is called "DUDE OF THE WEEK" and read the brief story about Terry Collins. There must be a mix-up by the writer telling the story. I do not see how this can be done. I have never heard of it before. Have you?

43 people have viewed this an nobody has a comment??? did I do something wrong? Is it not interesting? This is something I have never heard of happening in baseball before, but maybe its more common than I thought.

I've never heard of it before, but it seems possible.

I love how it's assumed that he gave up a home run because he didn't warm up.  Maybe he gave it up because he's...Tim Byrdak?

I agree about Byrdak. I have just never heard of an umpire controlling who can come into the game from the pen.

Oh, I didn't even notice that. :lol: That is strange.  I would have thought it would have been up to the manager.

So the ump is the arbiter of hand signals? What the h? Remember that Guillen used to signal for Jenks by miming a fat guy?

If Byrdak had been announced then he has to pitch
