  1. At what point is the school responsible for providing a safe field that meets the rule requirements set forth by the fed. I can understand a rare situation, but when it is expected to happen that becomes a problem. The school has a responsibility to provide a safe field for the student athletes. We are required to enforce fed rules. If I just decided to change a rule that would be unacceptable. I see it as the same thing.
  2. I may have ran into someone on this committee in my state. He was hoping for an independent person to count pitches who would receive pay for services. For this year it would present a problem if you call games for non-affluent schools. School budgets are set months in advance and by the time baseball season comes around they are hoping not to run out of money for the teachers let alone another person to "count pitches" Have to wait a few more days for official word.
  3. Thanks for guidance. I had a video on my phone from a clinic this summer and then my phone died. It was impossible to get down at the clinic but something I wanted to learn how to do it correctly.
  4. Does anyone have a video of how to properly complete the foot work for a double play from B and C position? Something I want to work on for next year.
  5. Clear gear ...spray all my stuff with it...buy it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Clear-Gear-Sports-Spray-Bottle/dp/B00BMLJOLM/ref=sxts_k2p_hero1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=2668835642&pd_rd_wg=lec9F&pf_rd_r=Y7C3648Z11S176CH524R&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-top-slot&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B00BMLJOLM&pd_rd_w=xeslZ&pf_rd_i=clear+gear&pd_rd_r=ESW7MH31KAWAZXWM19C0&ie=UTF8&qid=1478930293&sr=1 gets the stink out and disinfects...I spray when I finish my last game of the day. Also spray Oder eaters in base and plate shoes.
  6. This may seem like a stupid question but does this have a hard toe? It doesn't say that any where so far that I have seen. I like that the pad goes down lower. I have been hit a few times on the instep. If the shoe gets hit does it loose its shine?
