That segment when you discussed Hoberg aligning himself with the catcher should be part of every umpires annual training.
panner11 10 mesi fa
Yeah as much as people say you shouldn't have older umps. It probably doesn't have to do with ability as long as their eyesight isn't going. It's probably that a lot of the older umps are stuck in their old ways, and aren't adapting to newer, better umping techniques. So some older umps can be really good, even if most are kinda bad now.

@panner11 100% agree with this , too many people just say old umps when that’s not the problem
Ryan Alexander Music
Unfortunately, a lot of training camps and schools will tell you setting yourself up like Hoberg is "wrong". I've been to a handful of camps and only one instructed us to get in a position where we can best see the ball. It's absolutely goofy

This was taught to all umpires whenever they started it's not hard but the amount of times I see umpires out of position in mlb cause they don't want to get hit or something is insane angel blindnandez is one of the most blatantly bad positioned umpires in the entire mlb behind the plate

Hoberg was adjusting what the slot is with every pitch. Umpires taught by outdated method seem to stay in the far end of the slot and just sticking there.

It’s honestly insane that it’s even possible to be this accurate considering on every close pitch the catcher is basically trying to lie to you and say t has to be tiring bending down and keeping focus just like a player for a full nine innings with less of a break than anyone else on the field

It’s amazing. He in it 100%s Umpires should be paid by accuracy. Higher accuracy. Higher pay. This ump. Deserves a BIG bonus for being perfect in the World Series. He should also have a very nice salary. He’s well worth it

The thing is it really should have nothing to with the catcher or the batter. He should solely be focused on when the ball crosses the plate. The strike zone really should never changes regardless of the batters size or stature.

I have to say, it is pretty refreshing to hear someone heavily into the sports scene calling out an individual ump for perfection. All too often we focus only on the blown calls. And your analysis on what enables him to make good calls is fantastic for anyone considering becoming an ump. Why anyone would put themselves through that for little or no appreciation befuddles me, but I worked a lifetime with little or no appreciation (other than remuneration) so I should not be critical.
PsyMar 6 mesi fa
The main reason why I would consider it is because I love baseball and think I could do a better job than Angel Hernandez.

The Estimated Umpire Strike Zone (EUZ) generates the consistency rating that Jomboy mentioned a few times through the video. It consideres all the pitches that the umpire called strikes and tries to draw the strike zone based on those calls. The program trying to draw this zone doesn't know what the strike zone actually looks like though, so for really well called games it can get funky. If no pitchers in a game pitch high and away then the EUZ will have a big hole high and away because it believes that a pitch there wouldn't have gotten called for a strike simply because there were no strikes thrown in that spot. The consistency rating really doesn't matter for very well called games, since it's based on the EUZ, which struggles to properly rate well called games. When Jomboy mentions any of the pitches that "go against the way he called the rest of the game" he's referring to pitches in the EUZ that were called balls and pitches outside of the EUZ called strikes. Usually this can cause troubles since the EUZ will leave holes in the strike zone if not a lot of pitches are thrown to that spot, and it will extend the strike zone if a lot of pitches are thrown to that spot.

Your analysis is incredible. I've never seen anything like it. Here's how that's important to me: it's brought me back to baseball after I defected due to the 1994-1995 strike. Sure, I've watched this game that I have truly loved since I was a kid. Mostly World Series and playoffs. But, since I found your approach using this media, I find my love reinvigorated. I'm even looking at baseball cards again. I don't know what to say, other than, "thank you." I mean it. You are of baseball. Like Harry Caray. That may be goofy, but that goofball loved the sport as much as anyone ever. You know, like you seem to.

I'm a Phillies fan and watched every inning of the World Series. I also umpire at the HS level, so I appreciate good umpiring. This was an absolute gem of a game called by Hoberg. This excellence was elevated even more, when you think of how atrociously the rest of the games were called. It was bad for both sides, so I doubt it would've made any difference in the big picture. However, you have to expect, in the World Series, that every game should be called the way that this umpire did. This was not only the best called WS game, but may have been the best called game all season, period. I hate to say it and I'd hate to see it, but the other umpires in this series were a very good argument for robo-umps. We need many more Hobergs and way less Angels.

This is the first time I have heard of an umpire having a perfect game. I have seen my dad umpire at the High School level for a few years here in Minnesota before becoming my baseball coach, but I never really paid attention to how he operated, but I do know that he never had a player or coach argue balls and strikes. I have seen them argue safe or out calls however.

Great analysis! Keep in mind even though half of the pitches are swung at, umps still must make a decision on them. Therefore umping home plate is the most mentally taxing day of their week.

Sojan 10 mesi fa
I umpired about 6 years for high school age school and travel leagues and one of the first things I was taught and consistently heard among colleagues was to not let the batter or catcher influence your calls on balls and strikes. It was stressed that the job is to call based on the zone you envisioned regardless of whatever dance went on around it. I assume that is the case for Hoberg as well since he's an outstanding professional. With that said, allowing myself to be the armchair umpire for a moment, it does kill me to see him rest his hand on his thigh as that ball comes in. Foul balls happen and they strike umps often, it's only a matter of time before he takes a strike to the hand and nobody enjoys a broken finger. When I was learning the ropes I was always instructed to rest my hands behind my thighs and let my legs do the work of supporting my crouch. While it's a minor nitpick, I think it is indeed better form to do this and it serves as better protection for yourself behind the plate. It's not going to affect the game in any major way but it's worth it to yourself to protect your body.

Great breakdown. I have to tell you where he sets up is a tiny reason why he's dam good behind the plate. As a matter of fact the reason he had a couple of issues with low pitches is a result of being too close to the catcher in other words looking over the catcher. What happens is the ball will disappear because you cant look through the catcher. and on low pitches it could cause a call to be inconsistent There is a lot more that goes into being good behind the plate. I would say that his timing calling the pitch is why he's really good. In other words he doesn't make a decision until the ball is all the way in the mitt. So he probably doesn't get fooled on pitches very much. Also, in this game both catchers used the Tony Pena position behind the plate which gives you a great view of the zone. I wonder if there is a way to find out how often he is hit with foul tips. ,But, yea he was obviously nails back there.
Benjamin Rodriguez
Just from seeing his stance and the bad umps’ stance, seems like not having to use your hands against your legs to keep you up and knees bent matters a lot. Good knees/core and good back.
Damn fine breakdown of the nuances of doing a difficult job to perfection. I only wish I could match your skills with my own perfect breakdown of your perfect breakdown.

lg78 10 mesi fa
For the WS yeah you want the best HP umpire like Hoberg behind the dish as much as possible, but even for a younger ump he needs to rotate with at least one or two other guys. Part of what makes him great is the movement to the center of the zone as you pointed out and he's going to tire after a while. Teach all newer umps to do this, and if the older guys can't then they don't call balls and strikes anymore.

Would love to see you do a breakdown like this with an umpire or even better the next umpiree that throws a perfect game.!

Saw the title and HAD to click on it! Plate umpires have such a tough job, and it is so nice to see the good ones getting time behind the plate they deserve and the recognition for their hard work that they deserve. The job is hard enough normally, but it's even more impressive to do this well in a world series game of all things. It does not get more important than this.

Didn’t even realize how much it takes for these umps to get it right and also how much variation there is between good and bad. It’s not just luck or anything, it’s an art,

Agree 100%, especially in the playoffs, the premium ball/strikes ump should be behind the plate every game. In the middle of the summer when it is 100 degrees in most stadiums, I get rotating them through so they don't die of exhaustion, but the playoffs are rarely an issue heat wise.

usually we’re making fun of how bad the calls are but this time it’s a bit more wholesome

This is great! People always talk about bad umpires but there are lots of amazing ones that do a great job!

I like how you didn’t just shout this guy out for such a great game, but you explained WHY he did well and why others did not

I love this breakdown. I’ve always said that when an ump does bad everyone notices and when he does well nobody notices. This ump was amazing in this game and he deserves tons of credit.

for the mlb world i hope he stays this good whole life its impossible but i got mad respect for him for calling a perfect game cause some umps are so bad i started thinking its easier to have a perfect game as a pitcher than a perfect game as a ump XD mad respect to this man right here

The issue with being in that area is that you are far more likely to take fall balls off the mask. Still, strong consistency in his calls. For Gibson, his position is good (and contrary to Jomboy, the angled fixed view is better for calling outside pitches. However, he is too angled, and his back foot should be far closer to the catcher. Bucknor is in the scissors stance. That's pretty much the issue.

Great job, Blue. We won't need robots if we can get more officials like you.

I think you suggested in another video having specialized home plate umps I love that idea and put this ump as #1 on the list.

The fact that he is getting into position on every pitch is extremely impressive. That has to be very hard on the knees and legs to do that all night. Goes to show this is a young mans game. Umps included. They should can these old guys and get newer, younger, guys, and teach them this method and pay them better. EVERYONE can respect this. They may hoot and holler during the game. They always will they are competing. But after everyone will see the consistency and over time the respect will come and people will start to hoot and holler less.

Man deserves a bonus….I’m talking about Jomboy of course, for working so hard and going so in depth just for the love of the game. Very admirable

This was probably one of best breakdowns I’ve seen and definitely my fav!
