    At the risk of a complete hijack. Some years ago my little cousin was staying over. He was rummaging through the basement and came up with box of 8 tracks and asked “uncle Rich do you have the console to play these video games”

    Maybe more like this.....Invariably the batter hits the next pitch out of the park Coach goes off on umpire claiming “That’s on you blue, you called him out on an infield fly and changed the call. You need to learn the rules”.....An so ends this coach’s day on the diamond.

    Agreed. Just get the right length. In this case, too long is not better.

    Not an issue. As a mater of fact I've never even thought about it, or noticed how the shins sit next to the shoe. Get the force 3's.

    No, I met him and the rest of the MLB crew working the Mets/Phillies game for the LLWS/MLB classic. Chris Guccione (HP), Jeremie Rehak (1B), Mark Ripperger (2B), Gerry Davis (3B)

    Thanks @MadMax @boyinr @BT_Blue & @Richvee! I know now what I’m adding to the ever growing Christmas wish list

    I fully endorse my colleagues’ feedback ( @Richvee, @BT_Blue, @boyinr ) on this, and let me add... Unlike the Wilson Golds, Platinums, and Douglas shinguards, ankle wings on the Force3 Ultimates are soft. Yes, soft. Now, before that worries you, the ankle wing is comprised of a rigid half-sphere dome, backed by Kevlar. So with the midtop plateshoe, you get the benefit of overlapping protection without the Frankenstein-esque rigidity the other “premium” guards result in.

    I concur. Even though I wear the low top version of the NB460, I would never have come close to worrying about that if I wore the mids. Purchase your Force3 shins with confidence!

Second go round for me. This time I am sure that I will not be as edgy as I was last time. Can't wait for the match. It is a real joy having the best seat in the house to watch two really talented teams go at it. I will try to not suck. But, as I say to SWMBO, I can't make any promises

    Action photo of the match. Two evenly matched teams. Came down to the team in blue playing a great defense that kept their opponent from playing the power game they had played all year. And I didn't suck!

    Ray is usually has a finger on the pulse of MLB Umpire gear, so I'm inclined to believe him. Nike has a supplier's contract with Major League Baseball for select fan apparel, undershirts, staff shirts (polos, half-zips, etc.), hoodies, staff wear, and staff footwear. They share the footwear mantle with New Balance, who (of course) has it for staff footwear, as well as MLB Umpires footwear and supplemental shirts (undershirts, polos, etc.). Majestic still has the contract for on-field jerseys, shirts and jackets for both players and umpires. All the hoodies worn by the players / staff during the postseason were Majestic. New Era, '47, Nike and UnderArmour share (not equally, but do) the contract for hats. I would venture a guess that the Nike 1/4-zip pictured above isn't an Umpire article, as Ray points out. Instead, it might have been supplied to MLB Support Staff, such as the Video Replay techs, or the coordinators, or the Umpire handlers, or anything else that is in Operations on behalf of MLB, not the individual franchise team and/or the ballpark. There are alot of people involved in putting on a baseball game.

    with 2 sets of Wilson shin guards in my garage, my pair and my dads who doesn't umpire much anymore, I am so tempted to make my own. However, as a college student, money is usually tight. I, unfortunately, do not have the funds to make the best shin guard never made.

    These magnets are outstanding. I have forgotten and washed my shirts with the magnet still on and they never came off or moved. I recommend using 2 magnts.

    Just those 6 for now, the shirts and the pads peaked my interest. Our state association has opened up to the MLB shirt but our local hasn’t made the call on changing shirts. Wish I knew so I could pick up some at a discount.

    Wanted to drop a note here. We’ve had a few staff additions and changes! MLB Umpire 53 Greg Gibson will be attending UPC. A 1991 graduate of the Wendelstedt Umpire School, his 19 years of MLB experience will be a great asset for our students Matt Brown, MiLB Umpire Training Academy Instructor and AA MiLB Umpire, will be replacing Mark Stewart Jr., who will now be teaching at the Advanced Course.

    Look at the reverse image, particularly the lower U-bar. No way that's titanium. That weld has too much of a gap in between the pieces and too much filler. That would have oxidized excessively during welding and failed.
