I mean, seriously, JLyon (another certified official) has already pointed this out, and the OP is obviously trying to learn something here, so why fill his head with incorrect information.
Now, here I am, another certified official saying the opposite of what you are saying, and you will probably come back and say again, "No, the rules are that the player has to appeal". LOL.
Ok Im glad thats the way it is, because most younger kids seem afraid to ask the officail. I just hope they install it more because I have seen cases where an umpire will tell a kid afterward that he saw the call but didn't overrule. I guess i was just mistaken because i had never seen it that enforced. My bad on being wrong as you guys would obviously know over me.
