Making the Call

By Stuart Shea

Is it worse when an umpire blows a call
Or when a player–in righteous anger–makes a mockery of it all?

It’s hard to support bad umpiring work
But who wants to watch some player act like a jerk?

Why don’t we even it out.
Let’s increase fan applause-o.
Let’s make umpiring-baiting legal
And let plate umpires call batters out like Enrico Palazzo!
