  1. Along the same lines...from windup the non-pivot foot cannot be entirely in front of rubber correct? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  2. Google 60 ft base mechanics. There should be plenty out there. It is basically softball mechanics. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  3. Boxer briefs NB Jock Compression shorts or tights depending on plate or base Took one off the dirt behind the regular cup. NB since then. Luckily, haven't had to test it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  4. Agreed. Point it fair and signal the out. The way it looked, Bucknor was calling it foul after the play. Just my .02. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  5. On tv you don't get a straight on look so the box seen can vary from MLB's actual pfx Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  6. Fair or foul is determined by where the when touched. Fielder's feet positioning don't matter Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  7. Only "complaint" I have is they are so lightweight. My game last night had 25 mph winds and the pants weren't heavy enough to stay down over my shoes. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  8. I found a Mizuno on Amazon. I wish I could find one line Alfonso Marquez has during the Rangers game right now. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  9. From the rubber one, from the field two. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  10. I believe U1 was looking at the feet and missed the tag attempt all together. My guess would be the manager came out and mentioned the tag and U1 admitted not seeing a tag attempt and was then somewhat obligated to go for help. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  11. Timing...timing...timing. Oh yeah did I mention timing?
  12. My first and only was in a high school game. R2, R3 no outs. Line drive at F6's knees. Catch, tag R2, throw to F5 for third out. Funny thing is; the team that turned it is probably the worst around.
  13. I try to arrive 45min-1 hr early for High School games. For college games, they want us there 1.5 hrs early. Friday our crew was there 2.5 hrs early because the coach failed to update the game time in Arbiter.
  14. First college game is Mar 8 at this moment. Hoping to get some more games from the local college. Scratch that...I just got a call for a double header on Feb 11 and a tournament the next weekend.
  15. I would guess there was a discussion about what happened the night before in the pregame. So as soon as it happened, Bill just reacted. The pitch was WAY inside. I know it was after the ejection, but watch how the catcher bounced out and got between the two. He knew what was going on. Probably a little quick on the trigger, but if a warning was the only thing that happened, then there is another HBP and the benches clear, the warning is not enough. In my opinion, after the episode the night before, an ejection was used to put out the smoldering coals before they ignited.
