  1. New throat protector

    Here's a photo of the throat protector on my Mizuno Mask. The one thing I would say surprised me was how light it is.

  3. question about west vest platinum.

    I've used the Douglas chest protector. Very low profile, however that comes at a cost. There's a gap where the shoulder cap meets the protector. After a fastball from an American Legion pitcher found the gap I now have the system 7. I know people have contacted Douglas and they put a plastic piece over said gap, having seen one it's no more low profile than a Wilson with it added.

    Anyone know of a Riddell mask for sale?
  10. Test Question

    The set position is defined by foot placement on the rubber. The Set is when the pitcher brings his hands together and stops.
  11. Rubbing Mud

    I ordered last year and it took 7 weeks to get it no contact from anyone.
  12. No Called Pitches

    I had it happen this year. Top of the first three pitches three outs, all ground outs first pitch swinging. Top of the second lead off batter gets a base hit first pitch swinging, next batter hits a popup in foul ground just behind first base on the first pitch, its caught by the first basemen and the runner was running on the pitch gets doubled off. Next batter grounds out 4-3 on the first pitch. 6 pitches 6 outs.
  13. Calling a Strike on a Dropped Ball

    I think this falls under the path of least resistance on a pitch that is just flat out uncaught. Every defensivemanager and coach thinks that a ball that gets by the catcher must be a ball (outside orinside) because their catcher wouldn'tlet one get bythat wasover the plate.The offensive manager doesn't care because you called the pitch a ball. Call that pitch a strike andthe offensive managergoing to be thinking the same way as the defensive manager and as the plate umpire your going to hear about it.
  14. Unoccupied Base/Stealing/Pick

    As long as the pitcher stepped toward second base there's no requirementon how the pitcher disengages the pitchers plate. Legal play.
  15. Mask Porn?

    Where did you order the Mizuno from?
