  1. retirments

    The least surprising retirement in a while.
  2. SSK Japan Mask

    So it' worth signing up?
  3. SSK Japan Mask

    WOW! No joke! I was selfishly hoping you were going to Japan to buy one. I would have had you pick up a Mizuno Shovel, if you could find it, and I would have bought it off you. Lol
  4. Douglas Custom Gear

    The one Jeff and I worked out to purchase from a third party seller I was planning to send for black padding and orange piping (have to represent my SF Giants). But it didn't fit so it got sent for refurbishing on its way to another buyer on here. I will have to decide if I want to try and send the one I bought from Keith last year out for customization or not.
  5. SSK Japan Mask

    How much are those bad boys gonna run you?
  6. Father's Day Masks

    are you guys going to get this in just the pads?
  7. Douglas west vest any offers?

    Looks familiar. But in MUCH better shape than the one I got.
  8. 2018 School Roll Call

    (How we all feel about you going to school)
  9. Obstruction or Interference

    To add a bit of confusion to Rich's post. The fielder protection can change during the play. An example would be that you think F4 (2B) is the one to make the play. But as it develops, it becomes obvious that F6 or F1 (SS or P) will be the one to make the play. The fielder protection would shift to one of them. Thusly... originally, the contact with F4 would be interference. The change in protection to another fielder would change it to obstruction.
  10. Father's Day Masks

    I like his setup more than the blue-on-blue-on-blue look. Pretty sure it was @Thunderheads above that said that a black mask with the blue pads, or the blue mask with black pads, would look sharp. I tend to agree with him.
  11. I can vouch for the low weight of this combo. I has the same setup on my Diamond before moving to the Zett tg.
  12. Cricket umpiring scenario

    Unfortunately, you have found a baseball umpiring forum. Not a cricket one. Though it will be fun to see if anyone has an answer for him. Especially our international brethren.
  13. 2 umpire system mechanics question

    By the book... plate should have the touch at third.
  14. Where to start on learning NCAA ruleset

    I would start with the NCAA website.
  15. MLB Majestic jackets

    I don' know if I ever saw the copper or brown piping. But yes... Majestic, Smitty, and even Honigs, all made a black jacket with the vertical white piping with removable sleeves.
  16. Does Pitcher Have to Pitch Bottom of 1st

    But we are also talking youth ball which usually carries the extra game.
  17. CP advice for college games

    Also a full HALF, if not more, as expensive as the big yellow W.
  18. WTB 13-inch Wilson Platinum

    Probably doesn't help... But I have a used, but in good condition, L/XL Gold available if you are interested.
  19. CP advice for college games

    Your champion will be fine for college ball. Heck... I know guys that wear it at the pro level. Personally, I wear a modified Schutt XV for my games. I also have a Douglas that I need to break in. What ever you do. Make sure to properly measure yourelf. I am 5'9" and was around 260 when I wore my Gold. It didn cover my bottom rib.
  20. Looking for plate jacket

  21. Looking for plate jacket

    Pretty sure he actually ordered one.
  22. BI followed by HC EJ

    Wish I could say I was better than this. But this comment would get a snarky response from me.
  23. Appeal of pulled foot

    Actually had an umpire IN A PLAYOFF GAME tell me if he asks for help on a check swing, he wants me to agree. Asks another way... give what I got. And to never change his check swing call in the middle. I had a 10 month old at the time. I couldn't remember what I had for breakfast that morning!
  24. Strike Call

    We have a kid (and by kid I mean he is in his early 20s) in my area that says "strike one", "ball one", etc. It is for sure odd to hear it since we are more used o the normal ways of doing it ("ha", "hee", "hee-ha", etc). But when asked for ways he can improve and such... this never even entered my mind.
  25. Unorthodox rotation situation

    I completely agree. This could have ended very badly if not for Warren's hustle and the luck of having a partner that communicates better than most.
