  1. This has to be a Joke.
  2. Yeah I pack for the day and that's it. I take everything out of my car when I get home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I will be at BBUC or I could just drive to your house and get it?
  4. I have ordered from +POS on 3 separate occasions and have had ZERO problems with them. Just ordered a ZRO-G mask from them about a month ago. And I received it in less than a week. I guess I am lucky Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yep Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. We have the opportunity to work about 100 3 man games this season during the season. Included in that is a couple of 4 man tournament final games. Our playoff games are 3 man up to the semi finals then it is 4 man Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. So let me clarify a couple of things since @grayhawk mentioned me. I owned the Original Force 3 Chest Protector. I took a bunch of hits in it. And although I felt them, I never bruised or anything. So when the V2 came out, I wanted it. I bought it and sold the V1 to offset the price. I have had it since June. I have not really taken a shot in it until last week. I was working a D3 Winter League game. The pitcher was throwing 80 - 82 MPH. The pitcher and catcher got crossed up on a pitch. The catcher barely got his glove up so the ball barely grazed the glove. I took the shot in chest right above my breast. It knocked the wind out of me. As well it left a bruise for going on a week and a half now. And it was sore for 5 days. I get that you will feel something when you get hit on occasion. But this was a pain I have never felt before. And being that I routinely have pitchers throwing in the 90+ Range with the level of Baseball I do, I no longer feel safe using this chest protector. It seems like it would be fine for High School Level and below. But not when you climb into the College level. Atleast not for me.
  8. And he doesn't get to establish a baseline as you stated. Because he doesn't have absolute right to the baseline he established. The fielder has absolute right to field any ball and the base runner has to avoid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Which is good for the game. If people are trying to protect the kids, that is what matters. And it is a teaching moment for kids. Umpires are human. We all will make mistakes. Just like you might not agree on a strike or ball call. But 99% of us take this job seriously. And we are out there to do the best job we can. And we really don't care who wins.

  10. If R1 saw F4 and F4 was turning a play, then R1 has to avoid any contact. Just because F4 got rid of the ball right before contact doesn't mean he isn't protected anymore. That is where you have to Umpire. If R1 is doing what he is supposed to be doing then he should have already been moving out of the way of F4. Atleast that's the way I understand your post. And if he had been moving out of the way then there wouldn't have been any contact. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Why did R1 raise his hands in the Air? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I was at La Verne when you were playing. I was the good looking umpire Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah we might be having a beer or 10 right now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I think my first 2 seasons of High School I wore Combo pants. Now I have at least 3 base and 3 plate pants for every season. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I am an Insurance Broker. So I can pretty much do whatever I want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
