  1. I can vouch for this clinic. They do a great job, and it's highly organized.
  2. Can you lock this @Thunderheads
  3. Brand new West Vest Gold for 110 http://www.ebay.com/itm/361759093072
  4. Bought in January, Removed the wings, worn in about 10 games. Still in great condition. I'll include the original harness, since I cut my delta flex way down and it wont fit you unless you're as skinny as me at 6'0 150 lb $130/OBO with shipping included. Paypal or Venmo, PM for offers.
  5. I would say at least 25,000
  6. I don't know what to tell you if you don't believe the brooks baseball graphic. They're pretty accurate. Remember, the camera is coming from 30 feet up in the air, 400 feet away, and not centered. You can't trust the graphics on the screen. Regardless, it is much closer than you claim, and too close to take if you just got done showing up the umpire.
  7. Pitch 5, outside the zone a few inches Pitch 6 was in the zone Why should Miller be reprimanded for missing one pitch by less than 6 inches?
  8. Yea the welds are off a bit, so one side extends further down than the other. The frame itself isn't bent, it's just not symmetrical.
  9. Just turned my mask from little league into a respectable backup Before Melted off the rubber coating After some sanding and chopping off the throat guard. Pretty easy process, got a paint and primer in 1 spray paint. I will hold onto it as a backup, hope my new Rawlings Ti holds up and this never has to see the field. Just ordered a new pair of team Wendy pads, so I'll rotate my old pair onto this mask, and add a hanging throat guard.
  10. This is used to address a foul ball that might go sharp and direct to the catcher, but not the mitt. So, it's not a foul tip (must go sharp and direct to the catchers mitt and caught), and it's not in flight (I believe the approved ruling states it must reach an appreciable height). A ball that is tipped and first touches his protector or mask, for example, is a foul ball.
  11. I had bad luck with them when I ordered a few pairs of base poly-wools. The crease was off centered, and the fly wouldn't stay zipped. I gave them away to our local little league.
  12. Oh wow a koozie! TBH I was kind of hoping for a full ride scholarship
  13. Coach should have protested at the time the call was made - that is definitely allowed. There was a change in possession, he had time. But yea, I agree that rule misinterpretation protests should be allowed, but there has to be a time window on it - i.e. 30 min after the game ended. That being said this situation sucks, and I would never want to be part of this as an official.
  14. Would the dust of some of the baseball fields we work on show up more on black pants?
  15. https://www.amazon.com/Wilson-Umpire-Chest-Protector-12-Inch/dp/B002ZBOE3G/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1479502943&sr=8-9&keywords=umpire%2Bchest%2Bprotector&th=1&psc=1 Thought I'd share this - the Large/XL size of the West Vest Gold is listed at only $108 on amazon Right Now - that's about 2 sizes too big for me otherwise I might buy it.
