    They are nice. The color is SLIGHTLY lighter. The cut is much better than Smitty. The adj waist band is a better construction. The price difference is up to you....

    Has anyone reviewed them, and compared them with Smitty's golf pants? I don't mind spending some dough to buy the best (read: years of Honig's polywools), but I'd like to know if they're that much better. Also, do they come with a permanent crease? p.s. I still can't forgive him for the Davishield.

    Let's not forget that, in umpire gear lore, this is the ACTUAL name for this piece of mythical equipment!

    I was responding to Lou B's question - evident by the fact that I quoted his post in my response. But keep 'em coming.

    It asked what happens to the batter. Maybe be asking about a call. May be hypothetical. Just answer it. Adding wouda shoulda couldas just confuses people.

  15. When tmac announced some retro teachable moments late this season, he had no idea there were so many plays our audience wanted to see discussed. Without further ado, let's take a look at this play from a 1979 Braves-Pirates game, as viewed through the 2018 prism. Chuck Tanner's ejection is today's... [[ This is a content summary only.

    They’re made by fechheimer
  17. Who actually making these? and $90.00 is pretty steep for an amateur level umpire . I will stick to my Smittys poly spandex for now. https://www.gerrydavis.com/product/B08PTMLB001PL/MLB-Pro-Style-Plate-Umpire-Pants.html

    Shin Guards with Mid-Cut Plates

    F3 make a great shin pad for sure and I wear them. I have been taken many a good shot and the occasional bouncer. If I were to change anything on the F3 SP it would be adding an outer plastic ankle guard like the Wilson or Douglas. It would be the best shin pad never made...lol
  19. I’m a big fan of Chris. Enjoy watching him work. Got to meet him a few times at clinics and hang with him a bit the night before the clinic. Great guy. He’s been doing the fill in role a while now. He’s got to be close to the top of the list for full time.

    Yes - we know that. This is why I asked if the ump called him out anyway. That would imply I'm well aware the ump called it foul. We don't know what the umpire did after calling foul ball, nor do we know what the coach did/said. So, we don't know, for sure, why the question is being asked (except that the OP doesn't know for sure - and belittling him for not understanding that is unnecessary). I can see a scenario where the umpire somehow got this wrong, and the poster is asking because now they're not so sure of what they always believed to be true (ie. the poster may have always figured this was just a plain old foul ball, but the umpire called something else) The other possibility is it's just a hypothetical, and not actually experienced by the OP - he just doesn't know the answer - and, again, belittling him for not understanding that is unnecessary. You may guess to the reason for the post, and you may be right, but it's still speculation. As I stated above, I've seen it all when it comes to IFF's, from coaches and umpires alike - so I'm leaving all possibilities on the table.

    Beerguy55 - the original post said the umpire called it a foul ball. That's the correct call. It's the manager/coach that needs to learn the rules (which is true in most (but not all) cases)!

    Well, we don't have the context, do we? That is, what happened on the field to spark the question? Ump call batter out anyway? Or dead ball, no strike added? Or did coach argue one of those positions? (more likely) IFF tends to confuse people and shut their brains off in the moment - especially if they don't see it a lot. I've seen all these things argued by coaches, players and umps alike: IFF is a dead ball Runner must tag up until the ball LANDS IFF is in effect with only R1 IFF is in effect with two outs IFF is in effect with R2/R3 (no R1) And I've seen complete and total confusion around runners advancing on a foul ball, and the whole laws of foul balls changing when IFF is called - (ie. because IFF was called it's not REALLY a foul ball) So, yeah, it should be easy to understand, but I've seen many umps, coaches and players completely forget, in the moment, that once you throw the IFF out of the window, it's still just a plain old foul ball - everyone's focused on whether or not it's an IFF. I'll throw out a twist on this - if this is slow pitch with two strikes the batter is out regardless. And, again, I can see confusion in everyone just remembering it's not an IFF so the batter is fine, and forgetting that it's still a foul ball.

    New ump in Austin

    Welcome! I've always wanted to take a road trip down to the Austin area. I've heard it's one of the faster-growing areas of the country at the moment.

    Infield Fly IF FAIR - it was Foul so it is Not an Infield Fly. Why is that hard to understand? As others have stated, it's just a foul ball. Play on.
