Softball/ASA softball umpire
If the first baseman pulls his foot off of the bag and the Homeplate Umpire can clearly see it but the base umpire calls the runner out can Homeplate umpire initiate a discussion with base umpire without an appeal from the offense team. Thanks
While it would be very unusual for the plate umpire to initiate the conversation, nothing rulewose prevents it. The biggest problem with this is the appearance of favortism. At what point do you decide to talk to the other umpire? As the plate umpire, I would say if the offense is ok with the call, there is no need to initiate a conversation.
