  1. I've washed cold and dried on lowest heat setting and mine are holding up well after about 3 washes. Having the permanent crease sewn in helps keep them looking well too!
  2. Can any one tell me which shirts have open hemmed sleeves? Medium shirts usually fit me well everywhere except for the arms. I've got guns like Jim Wolf (no brag really he's just the only umpire I can think of with the same build I have) and want to get the same fit he has on his shirts without the circulation in my arms being cut off.

    How about this for a resume? I found this on a camp site. If you don't think he's got the experience and expertise to be where he was, you're a fool. Let's see your resume. Greg Street Camp Instructor Greg has 29 years of umpiring experience and training. He started his umpiring career back in 1988 when he attended the Harry Wendelstedt Professional Umpire School. He moved into umpiring Minor League Baseball for nine years and quickly worked his way up. He umpired in the Gulf Coast League, the South Atlantic League, the Eastern League, the Texas League, the Arizona League and then into the AAA Level in the International League. With a total of 14 years in College Baseball his knowledge and experiences are extensive. He has attended several camps and training sessions. Greg has worked in many conferences as follows: South Eastern Conference (SEC) for 12 years Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) for 12 years Southern Conference (SoCon) for 9 years Big South Conference for 6 Years Conference USA (C-USA) for 10 years Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) for 3 years Greg's most impressive umpiring experience happened in 2013, were he was privileged and honored to work the NCAA Division I College World Series in Omaha. Greg has umpired seven Division I NCAA Super Regionals and 11 Division I NCAA Regionals. Greg has also has umpired several Minor League Baseball tournaments. They include the South Atlantic League Tournament in 1991; the Eastern League Tournament in 1993 and the Texas League Tournament in 1994.

    Yes and as someone else said LSU took better advantage of it. Do you blame them? Also my question to the naysayers is, once he's called it there 3-4x, would you rather him tighten back up or stay consistent as we hear so very often?
  5. I can definitely see where more is being done to keep guys in the game. As in what we just saw after the strike 3 call in the LSU-OSU game. After the 3rd strike, the batter turned around and yelled some expletives at the umpire and the head coach also left his position to argue balls and strikes after being given the stop sign to not come out. Do I agree? I'm not good enough to decide that but it is what it is. There's no denying there's more rope being given in the CWS.
  6. I bought the combos strictly for the same reason. They work well with my force 3 shin guards.
  7. I guess we both watched the Dodgers-Cardinals game last night cuz I came here searching for one too!
  8. $50 per pair? Still out of my range. I'm looking for a steal as they're useless to you.
  9. Also, I love the interactions that MLB umpires have with managers. I couldn't make out much else Will Little said but I definitely saw "You're full of sh--. You know better!"
  10. Funny I came to post in this thread to inquire about the mask and here I've found my answer. Next question, I took a shot to my Nike Ti and it dented. Does anyone know where I can get this repaired? I'm considering sending it to Mask It to have it painted Black like Little's here.
  11. Just seeing this. I think I have a pair. I have no idea what the normal going price is so make me an offer.
  12. I wouldn't call it protecting dumb R3s or dumb umpires. Correct me if I'm wrong but this rule isn't new. It just hasn't been enforced and since been made an point of emphasis.
  13. My goodness! I don't NEED new plate shoes although I'm close, I may give in and buy the new New Balances thanks to the Equipment Forum. They'll probably pair nicely with my Force 3 Shins and Davis Fechheimer pants!
  14. Elaborate on these questions you don't ask if you actually want a job in MiLB....
  15. Too many pages to read through so how do the colors match up to others? Instead of another set of Davises, I'm considering buying a set of these as I can have the pants plus my creases added in for less than the Davises. Also, are combo pants usually tighter in the legs? I'm thinking of getting some and using them as plate pants since my Force 3 shins are so low profile.
