Sports Illustrated Kids - March

 This week I've started the newest round of illustrations for Sports Illustrated Kids so I figured it was about time for March's "What's The Call" illustrations!

This month I did pieces for baseball, football, and golf. Here are the scenarios for this month:

Baseball: Louisville Lightning catcher Omar Clayton jumps up to throw out a Jacksonville Sunshine's pinch runner who is attempting to steal second base and makes contact with the home plate umpire. Clayton drops the balls and the runner reaches second base. The Sunshine think their runner is safe, while the Lightning argue he must go back to first base because of umpire interference. You're the official. What's the call?

Football: During a third quarter kickoff, Heyward Hikers Bart Fuller boots the football toward Pasadena Pilots Sal Parrish, who waits for the ball near his own end zone. The ball lands just shy of the Pilots goal line and rolls to a stop at about the four-yard line. Instead of picking up the ball and returning it, Parrish puts one foot on the sideline and fields it. The Pilots look for a flag on the play as they believe the kickoff is out of bounds because Parrish's foot was on the sideline. The Hikers object. You're the referee. Is the ball out of bounds? 

Golf: Lynette Cordoza fails to get her first shot out of the bunker during a golf tournament. In frustration, she takes an extra swing and makes contact with the sand. Her swing doesn't affect the ball, however her opponents say she should be penalized for hitting the sand. You're the official. Does Cardoza incur a penalty for her extra swing?

I learned a few new things myself this month so let me know how you do. These illustrations are in the magazine this month so, if you want the answers, run out and grab yourself a copy!

Have a great day and I'll see you all soon!
