    Mizuno Shovel (black) For Sale!

    I would love to have it. But I just can't match the price others would pay for it.

    I keep holding out hope that he will!

    It's been brought up in the past. But I think has been glossed over since we haven't been this close to obtaining one until now. Keith putting his up for sale has been the best think for trying to get this idea rolling down hill in a long time!

    Wouldn't your standard Juggs machine work?

    Interesting.... I've had both the Zett and Spyder. I would be interested in hearing more.

    Does anyone on this site HAVE a 3D printer? Or access to one? That they might be able to answer this question.

    Yeh... it had me really confused. Especially since I think I gave some pretty good advice.

    Dead ball?

    I was always under the assumption that it was. But also, that is what assuming gets me.

    Force play or not?

    Wait... didnt you already ask this question? And didn't you already get the answer?

    Fair or Foul Ball?

    Exactly. The qualification for a fair or foul ball in this situation BEGINS at the front of the bag. Once it passes that, everything else is irrelevant.

    Ah ok... it is the same question posted in separate places. But here was my response from the other location. " I wouldn't say that working alone is a "big no no". It is just that a majority if us on the page have reached a point where we no longer have to work solo if we dont want to. But I can also see how it comes off as that. As for calling the pitch up... it has to do with perception. As we set up, a majority of us do so at the top most point of our strike zone. It is then that we deal with the optical illusion (at least one played on ourselves that is) that anything eye level is to high. When in reality, it isnt. So now you need to train your brain that a pitch that would hit you square in the nose is a strike. Anything above that is a ball."

    Weird... wonder what happened to my response to this?
  17. Just came across a grey FM25 hollow steel at my local play it again. Has blue leather pads and a beat up Diamond visor. The paint job on it is pretty beat up. So would need some color to it. But didnt look like any dents or dings besides paint chipping off. If anyone is interested, I'll go grab it and send it off. $27 ($25 plus tax that I would pay for it) plus buyer pays shipping.

    without it, it leaves a space on both shoulders without protection on an area the ball finds quite often. I'm trying to remember who mentioned this, might have been @JSam21, but I dont think Douglas does black plastic for chest protectors anymore. And they use the same caps that are on the shoulder paldrons. I believe he either used plastic he found off a football pad or had someone local to him cut out two flat pieces of plastic that he attached on his own.

    That would look SWEET! When I had bought one with @Thunderheads help a few years back, I was going to go black padding with orange piping for my San Francisco Giants. Sadly, the original seller (not Jeff) had misrepresented the size of the chest protector. And it didnt fit me.

    I didnt think so. Just took the chance you would know or not. I asked Mark Heavy up in Western Washington. But haven't heard back.

    R1 may also NOT interfere with a throw to F3 because he is standing on the bag
