  1. Force3 Defender doesn't help here....

    I think they're getting closer with the v2. I like the concept, but, like the v1, I think there's still room from improvement.
  2. All New equipment NEEDED!

    Get the new Smitty "golf" pants, in plate and base. They're revolutionary.
  3. I just went through my gear (fall cleaning), and I have a pair of 12 D's. Do understand that the 450's ran 1/2 a size small. They're in terrific shape, with 80% tread, and no big issues on the real leather.
  4. LL Championship Plate

    I've worked with Chris since 2000. Yeah, he's a really good umpire, a superior instructor, a super LL representative, and a great guy, too. Oh, and the pre-game, "don't suck" punch to the c/p can be devastating.
  5. Anyone used the All Star FM4000 Mag?

    He may not be endorsing that model after that. It'll be interesting to see what rig he comes back with. We should learn from that incident. When you take a shot like that, it's really important for our partners to watch out for us, and get us off the field. Not to listen to us say, "I'm fine" as our judgment has just been quite clouded, and another shot could prove quite dangerous. We need to trust our partner's judgement on this, and not try to man-up for an inning or two, and risk serious injury. Those of us who've been concussed know it creeps up on you, and 5-10 minutes later you really start feeling it.
  6. HA! The heathers sold, and no one bid on the polywools. Go figure. Oh well, they'll be donated to a program to develop umpires overseas. I'm cleaning out the garage of old stuff, and getting a big box to send.
  7. Out with the old, and in with another set of "golf" pants. http://www.ebay.com/itm/202020423744?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/202020415743
  8. Football reconditioners or repair places?

    One of the reasons I like, and trust Team Wendy gear is the science and testing that went along with the Zorbium® padding. Not sure if going down the local fabric store, or auto upholstery supplier is going to give anyone the same level of trust. I do understand the wanting to do this, but do think this through (along with any liability issues that may arise down the road if you wish to market safety gear).
  9. Cheering or Jeering?

    As to referring to spectators, when my partner puts three fingers on his left shoulder (check out the Mom in third row, left side), do I eject him?
  10. Cheering or Jeering?

    "He might be bunting, here" "He's really fast, let's watch for the steal" "Back up, he hit it over your head last time" all refer to the opposing players. Where shall we draw the line?
  11. Cheering or Jeering?

    It's not our call, though.
  12. Cheering or Jeering?

    What you can't do is something intended to induce a balk/illegal pitch. Stop that, but don't go down the other path of wanting the pitcher to have golf putting silence. That's just creepy.
  13. Cheering or Jeering?

    LoL at you guys who've never umpired girls softball, or varsity baseball. You need to get out more, fellas, as this is a normal thing.
  14. Riddell Power 2.0

    I would think the one hitch in producing protective gear would be liability insurance.
  15. +Pos

    Well that's odd, because we've been getting glowing reports for the last couple of months about them.
