Guess The Count #3 - With Brian Gorman

Hello again, everybody, and welcome to Guess The Count!, the umpiring game where we give you the pitches and you make the calls. Test your skills as an arbiter against those of a real Major League Baseball umpire.

Today's man behind the plate is Brian Gorman and we will be looking at the Red Sox/Orioles game from Tuesday, June 10, 2014. It's Mr. Gorman's second time at GTC; he was here just over a month ago, on May 8! Okay, make your guess and then see how you matched up against our big-time ump. One explanation before we start: There are no tricks. All of the pitches were taken by the batter; he did not swing at any of them.

Ready? Let's begin! Baltimore's Chris Tillman rocks and deals ... and it's time for you to ... guess the count!


How about this one?

I'm sensing a pattern. Here's the last one:

Check the comments for how Gorman called the pitches. ... How did you do? Do you have what it takes to be a major league umpire? If not, better luck next time!

Finally, we'd like to thank today's sponsor: Acme Robotics!

And that's all for today from ... Guess The Count!
