A 30-year-old life-long Marylander whose first sporting love was baseball. He likes Star Wars way too much to ever be considered a normal person. As his handle may suggest, he thinks that no trip to Camden Yards is complete without eating an Esskay hot dog, with the ketchup on one side of the bun and the mustard on the other. His real name is Mark.

Well... blocking part of the plate is ok as long as they have a lane to the other part, right?

He got the hand on the plate, so that would seem to suggest he wasn't blocking the plate
