Why then does the umpire use the expression make a call? Why call?

comment “It's up to you to make the call”
My first thought was that it came from sports but then I wondered why the word call was used. Call must have originally come from a phone call that needed to be made or a shout and then it began to be used in sports. That's my hypothesis anyways.

comment why do we say “too bad”?
You are correct. At first glance I did not notice that it was being used sarcastically. But even so, I'd still like to know why we began to use it that way. I've updated my question to explain what I mean a little better.

comment why do we say “too bad”?
Ah I see. That makes sense. It seems that even in non-sarcastic situations it still has a kind of different non-literal use. It's too bad you can't come to the party does not literally mean that the level of badness exceeds some acceptable Mark. It means more that I am unhappy because you cannot come.
