Astudillo scoring from first on a double. "The most exciting two minutes in sports," as they say.
As a catcher, I do NOT block the plate against that runner, if the ball comes to me. "The tally is yours, good sir!"
Catcher? Pfft. If I'm the home plate umpire when Stu chugs around third and heads for home, then he reports the outcome of the play at the plate to me afterwards at my safe vantage point in the fifth row.
Honor system, like when farmers used to sell sweet corn by the sack and put out a coffee can to leave a dollar.
