  1. Thanks for the correction
  2. Yes in Florida High School baseball. FHSAA allows for the PDH, He can pitch and DH, but that is it, no other defensive position can be played by the PDH same as college.
  3. same here
  4. Shortstops the ball intentionally???? Do you mean dropped it? If so, this is an immediate dead ball, the BR is out and all runners return TOP. The defensive coach is more than likely coming out for an explanation, Coach, in my judgement he intentionally drop the ball BR is out, all runners return to base occupied at the Time of Pitch. How do you know he intentionally dropped it??????? Coach you would not roster anyone that could not catch that line drive, so it had to be intentional, right? I do not endorse nor promote the use of sarcastic responses to coaches, the italicized example is purely for entertainment purposes, stick with response in bold. Strikes&Outs!!!!
  5. Com'on Kid don't fool around. Just let your hand drop to your side, don't let your mask fall out, so they'll know you're still on the job. They're gonna be staring at your face. So, walk outta the place real fast, but, you don't run. Don't look nobody directly in the eye, but you don't look away either. They won't know what to do, believe me. So don't worry about nuttin.
  6. I love mine!!!!!!! Just found out the have a new one the Nutty Buddy Flex http://www.purchaseofficials.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?search=action&category=1085
  7. Hey, you gotta respect these guys sticking to their guns. Luckily they didn't burn down the house. One can only hope the crew looked it up themselves in there post game. Was that a dream???? Where are you getting your umpires? Talk to the association assigner, if these guys are volunteers from your league, the league should have a clinic.
  8. 99% of all statistcs are made up. That being said, 99% of people in uniforms working games don't call the most basic balks, no stop, no step, start stop, let alone a Hybrid in FED. I have heared some of these guys say this proudly "I have never called balk" aaaarrrrggggg....... Then there are Umpires,
  9. BrianC14, No Shave level, that's funny. I keep saying I'm going to quit working that level, that day hasn't come yet, and with someone swinging a round stick at a round ball somewere, 260 days a year in FLA, it may never come. Age old problem, to much baseball not ehough umpires.
  10. My apologies for the late update. In my judgement, this will always have a place in ametuer baseball, until we are replaced by camers. It Paid back the $30 the first night. For timid newbies that need to delvelop behind the plate confidence, dramaticly decreses blunt trauma injury to the arms and other aeras not coverd by the inside protector, remember 2" above the belly button. Like any other piece of equipment you have to train. Use the slot as you normally would, taking the mask off tucking it away, you may be altering your srike three call, and you will need to practice the quick doning of the protector and mask after trailing batter runner, or a rotation to third. Hope this helps and would appricate any constructive coments and those that make me laugh. Strike&Outs!!!!
  11. Just had this come up the other night. All levels of LL start with 9 and finish with 9, no exceptions.
  12. 90 seconds if you let it play in your head 3 times. No need to break out the stop watch.
  13. Spoke with Cece in 2004 we were on the phone for 15 min and he was able to call out my build to a T. Regret not spending the money. He was a great guy and umpire. http://www.milb.com/content/page.jsp?sid=l112&ymd=20110505&content_id=18678914&vkey=league3
  14. Very helpful, agree with you about laying things on the ground, hanging the mask on the fence or throat protector tucked in your pants... can't stand it. I want to give our fore fathers of umpiring the respect they earned using this piece of equipment. I will however draw the line on the using this
  15. For the others that may be considering it i will keep you posted.
