  • How did you hear about Umpire-Empire?
  1. If a ball were to be delivered in such a way that it hits R3 before he was at a point less than halfway to home plate, we would have to determine if F1 stepped more towards third than home. If we judge that the step was towards third, then this is a legal pickoff, and play on. If not, this is a balk.
  2. Just like me.
  3. Given that no one saw it as being funny...
  4. In one of the leagues I work, there is a player with only one forearm. He uses a special bat with a prosthetic 1) Is the hand part of the bat? 2) Is the bat illegal due to non-conformity with specifications?
  5. No, it's not. The ball is not dead immediately, as shown above.
  6. I want to use a giant version of those retractable ID badge holders.
  7. With all the things that mad scientist is working on, I wouldn't be surprised. I also wouldn't be surprised if he was working on an improved jockstrap, or restraints for unruly coaches, or...
  8. I don't ever recall seeing a Rawlings titanium that wasn't double-bars.
  9. I find that trying to keep an adequate supply of baseballs in one bag that drags your waistband down on one side and requires you to fumble around to get a grip on one and request more balls every third pitch looks far more ridiculous.
  10. I'm still looking for light blue pads to put on my matte black frame and throat guard to match the new blue shirts.
  11. Because of the redefinition of voluntary release, which now includes two, and only two, situations. This is not one of them.
  12. I might be interested...I really only want the frame, though.
  13. I am arguing with the opinion of your state. It is not defensible and is incorrect. And if you feel that someone pointing out issues is bullying, I'm not so sure that this is the right profession for you. I have never implied, indicated, or even had the opinion that you are lying, so I have no idea where that came from.
