  1. Coach demands Ref be removed... and she is.

    This happens all the time. I couldn't tell you how many times coaches have demanded I get removed from a game, difference, my UIC would remove all the officials from all the fields if a tournament director tried to pull that stuff on me. Please, share this on you social media platforms. Tag Adidas, make sure they know that you have seen it and will stand up for her. This will continue to happen until it cost them money and makes them look bad to the general public. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  2. Replacing the foam in the Gold or Platinum

    Nope, they don't. The umpiring buying community is a small population with women being a tiny percentage of that, so I understand why the don't. Engineering, development, testing, and minimum manufacturing requirements don't make it very cost effective for companies. I personally would rather see a more modular vest that is basically ala carte. You start with a base narrow center plate then add additional pieces to suit the frame of the wearer. Force is on the right path, but their product isn't engineered for women's bodies. Our bumps don't allow the vest to dissipate energy the way it was engineered to work.

  3. Replacing the foam in the Gold or Platinum

    I'd be perfectly willing to speak to a rep about the unique common issues I've been speaking to other women umpires about. I, personally, have tried 6 different vests and I've been injured wearing every one of them, including the force. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  4. Appeal able?

    Not asking WHAT the rule is, asking if it's erroneously enforced (OBR), is it appealable? Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  5. Appeal able?

    It was a hypothetical question. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  6. Appeal able?

    Had this question from a coach today. I've had the same 5 11u teams for 4 days. Day one, kid is taking the signs off the rubber. I tell him he has to be on the rubber to take his signs, coach walks to the line and says "that's a balk right?" "no coach" we continue play. After the inning same coach asks if that's not at all a balk or if it's not an age appropriate balk, I tell him it's not at all a balk, it's a don't do that. So today, after the championship same coach asks me if that erroneous balk is called on his team, would that call be appealable. I told him I believed that it would be as its really a rule interpretation not a judgement call but I wasn't absolutely positive. Was I right? Ps, these 5 11u AA ball players, coaches, and fans, we're the most respectful and positive groups I've ever umpired. For a Utrip worlds, it was a pleasure doing these games even in the 100 degree plus cook house of fields. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  7. Rain, No Pay

    Here, rain outs don't pay. Even if you're there and dressed. Unless you start the game, once the plate meeting ends, that's when we get paid. Cancelled games less than 24 hours (really it's 6) or no shows, then it's paid. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

  10. Replacing the foam in the Gold or Platinum

    I'm actually making my own vest. I bought a memory foam mattress pad, some wicking sports material, and some wicking mesh. I'm going to re-engineer my padding altogether. If you can wait a few weeks, I'll tear apart the interior of one of the vests I'm cutting apart and will let you know what's possible. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  11. Earned or unearned

    Don't call a catchers balk, ever. Never. Ever. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  12. Required Shock absorbers on catcher's masks?

    What!? Wilson got rid of the shock 2!? Damn, I'm gonna have to buy a backup quick. I love mine but the springs are starting to wear down since my local umpires are constantly borrowing it so it's seen a lot of ball games. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

    Hey bud, you're coming off as deliberately obtuse and confrontational. Might think about that people have lives outside of UE and aren't running from you. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

    No, orange bag is for the first play on a batter runner only. Any play on R1, the orange is closed. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
