Bill Guthrie umpiring physics
It was umpire Bill Guthrie who found the neatest way to throw a player out of a game. The batter, incensed by what he thought was a particularly bad call, flung his bat high in the air. Guthrie cocked his head to follow the flight of the bat..
"If that bat comes down," he commented casually, "you're out of the game."
