    The person who shows up to a game 6 minutes after it's started... you know the type... the game is in progress and they are about to be up yet still continues to stroll down the entrance casually

    Catchers who constantly have to retrieve the hall from the back stop after the pitch

    Or the catcher that squats down to give a target for the pitcher

    OMG, we have that guy too. He actually doesn't even start to go get it until it's rolled back and stops. Makes me really appreciate guys who swing at the first pitch.

    Me too. I throw regular pitches if I'm pitching BP, however. I have more problems throwing a regular pitch for strikes than I do a knuckleball. lol

    guys who do warm up throws along the foul line instead of from the foul line into the field. If an errant throw gets away its in the other teams dugout rather than the field with no one there. From little league you throw from the line where are people learning this crap.

    My own teammates warming up on the infield. Don't be messing up my part of the field! I don't need any extra divots. I can make enough errors without your help.

    Infielders who are basically pylons defending OF throws. Won't move to catch something pretty easy on the fly, and try to one hand scoop balls in the dirt when there is no play (and miss it obv.). And the oufielder gets reprimanded for "missing the cutoff".

    An ASA umpire who allows the pitcher an unlimited arc and is told the arc is 6/12 and still lets the pitcher get away with it.

    guys who don't know how/when to slide but insist on doing it every time because they just HAD to try for that extra base. Especially when its dangerous to the infielders. Two weeks ago said guy almost broke our 3rd baseman's ankle by sliding super late and directly in her. I'm all for competitiveness, but there's a right way to do it...

    Starting the season out with 13 guys on the roster and struggling to find 10 to play league night...then picking up at least 5 guys for tournaments on Saturdays.

    Then guys who can't make either complain about playing time and being replaced.

    When women get to arguing over the score from across 1st base side to 3rd base side in between drags of the cigs they are smoking

    It's been said before, but when the one guy complains about the batting order every week. EVERY WEEK. You want to coach/manage the team? Be my guest! It sucks to have to deal with grown ass men acting like children. I just want to play the damn game. Stop getting out so often and you'll move up in the lineup.
