    The umpire who was hit during a championship baseball game in Stephens County is cautiously reacting to the incident. David Scott told Channel Two Action News, "It came as a surprise, disbelief more than anything. I'd say the video pretty much speaks for itself. Other than that, I really don't have anything to say about it. I'm currently under a doctor's care and still waiting for all the results to be evaluated." Scott's attorney says they're waiting for that medical evaluation to determine if they will take any legal action.
    Earlier this week, the Georgia High School Association levied a $1,000 fine against the Stephens County high school and put the school's athletics program on severe warning status.
    Stephens County Principal David Friend called the punishment "fair" and said he was very disappointed in his players’ behavior in the championship game.
    The catcher in the incident, Matt Hill, had been invited to walk on for the Gordon College baseball team. The coach of that team has since rescinded the offer.

    Charge: Catcher takes a dive and lets Ump get plastered with ball.

    Verdict: I say guilty.

    I used to catch back in the day, and while that was inexcusable, the catcher should have done a better job of "faking it" if he didn't want to get in trouble.

    Diving down like that was too obvious. He should have at least made a vain attempt and he would have been out of trouble.

    He gets what he deserves for being an idiot.

    While what the catcher did was chicken-s, that ball must of been going like what, 65-75 mph? The ump barely even flinched.
