  1. 1st time going to CDP, need some info

    I suppose you could leave them in the car, but you will do a heck of a lot of walking to get a uniform for each game. When I was there last year I was getting wifi coverage in the bunkhouse 33B. That had not been the case the year prior though. You can normally work as many games as you want. I averaged 3 a day for the first 4 days last year. The fields will schedule a 2 man crew but you can go 3 and 4 man to work on new skills. It gets cold. Granted I have always been up there in week 1, but my first time it was 93 when I left Georgia and 53 when I got there. Add some rain to that and you will want a jacket. Black jackets seem to be in short supply up there. I've been there three times and I have seen 18 year olds and a 93 year old. There is a wide assortment so I have no clue what to tell you about the average.
  2. Umpire looking for a team for week 13

    don't play the ump card
  3. CASV Umpire looking for teams

    didn't you have teams at CDP?
  4. Asking ump if a pitch would have been a strike

    I'm glad I haven't had the displeasure of working with jackasses such as yourself. You seem to be creating more problems than you solve.
  5. Fee for CDP umpire

    It's touchy to more than just the one. What you ask from a team should be in private. The team I went with this year still tried to screw me over and find another umpire the day before I left. I was not going without getting expenses in full up front. Those of us that have a large distance from the park have higher expenses and we are still bidding against those that live next to the park. There is no shortage of umpires here in Georgia that would love to go, but we have Georgia teams getting umpires from the Northeast. I'm not going next year as I will spend more time with my family. If I am not mistaken, those of you poopooing on MadMax don't go to CDP....
  6. gear needed at park

    It's colder than #%^* right now

    A very tall one.

    Do you have someone?
  9. Who's where?

    At CDP, @Umpirechick1 and I are on field 1
  10. Who's where?

    Where is everyone this week?
  11. Courtesy Runners

    Yes. In Fed and many like it, this courtesy runner can ONLY be used for the pitcher. A different courtesy runner will have to be used for the catcher.
  12. Umpire needs help with transportation

    I might see y'all in a week. Janet will kill me if you don't though. They are supposed to meet me today, by the way. The team mom thought she had paid me. She thought wrong.
  13. What happened to the strike zone?

    Getting further "IN" in reference to the slot is a tactic to see the outer corner better.
  14. Big sale at Honigs

    Consider yourself lucky. The last order I made with them, they lost.
  15. Force 3 Defender Mask V1

    Acpar, I will have a proposition for you via pm at asking price.
