  1. It's working now.... sure wasn't there yesterday. Thanks.
  2. I think that I would do the same, especially given the fact that he intentionally threw the bat toward the field. Deliver it to the coach along with a team warning that the next display of unsportsmanlike conduct would result in the player's ejection and restriction for the head coach. This kind of Baloney Sandwich display sticks in my craw... I'm reminded of the admonishment that Bear Bryant would give to a player who overtly celebrated after scoring a touchdown: "Act like you've been there before." Now, having said all that... let me ask this question: in FED games (or maybe it's just high school games using FED rules), we are instructed to ask each coach "Are your players properly and legally equipped, and ready to play the game in a sporting manner?" To me, that last part is, in effect, a warning, is it not? Discuss.
  3. Yes, that's what they have done. One central (somewhat) location, pretty much online sales only (unless you happen to live near Denver).
  4. Yeah, but on the other hand, he's only wearing it half the time we're wearing ours. Looks pretty rugged, but those double bars seem to be ... well, unnecessary.
  5. They put the size right in the middle? Otherwise, what's that "L" for? WAIT - I think I have it.... it's a CP for a left-handed umpire.
  6. What a shame.... all the other team needed was one more touchdown and a 2-point conversion and they could have won. Oh, wait.... My knees ache just reading that score. Anyway, sounds like you got a nice gift when the defense got the two outs. Take it and run.
  7. Yeah, would still like to hear who those two others were, and who they were calling. I can understand conferencing on getting the application of the rule correct, but 20 minutes.... yikes.
  8. Anyone know what CP that is?
  9. Oh.
  10. And speaking of Vanover, check out this double-top-secret CP:
  11. Is this it?
  12. Copy that. I'd be out of there as well when "no further action was taken by the defense".
  13. On other items with a 'Size' option, they show the various sizes in a little black box and white letter.... S, M, L, XL etc... On that link for the LS black shirt, there are no sizes list, and yet it says the item is "In Stock". When I clicked on "Add to Cart", it gives me an error message stating that I "Must select a size" WTH ?
  14. Just wondering if any college umpires are using this. ... ? No luck in posting in Books section, thought I'dtry here.
  15. If we're in FED the rules do not REQUIRE the request to get help. Otherwise, we agree. The protocol used will also consider the totality of the circumstances with the coach coming out of the dugout, and my understanding of what his intentions are.
