  1. Anyone have one they’d be willing to part with for a decent price?
  2. PUC/Indyball b4 Pro-School?

    I’m really comfortable with the fact that I’m going to be rebuilt as an umpire. The thing that I don’t want to happen is if I have to go a second time. The reason I’m thinking about 3man and Indy ball is that if work well enough and get offered a job Ill have “greater” experience to separate myself from the pack if I get to the evaluation course.
  3. PUC/Indyball b4 Pro-School?

    Hey all, so I decided not to go to pro school this upcoming year back in June. I figured I’d be better off waiting it out another year and getting some more experience in. I feel like another year of all the levels I call would definitely help me. Especially since I started learning 3 man, and going out and working some D1 fall intersquads. And then it hit me, why not attend PUC and get a better grasp on 3 man while trying to earn a job working independent ball for a season before going to pro school. Ive talked to some minor league buddies and have gotten some mixed reactions about it. One thinks the experience would definitely help, and another thinks it’d be a waste of a year (but he really wanted me to go to school this year). I’m gonna ask another what he thinks later on this week, but just wanted to get some more opinions from you guys. But ultimately I just might do what my gut tells me. Also if any of you work or have worked in an independent league what’s your take on it
  4. No worries hahah, did you not like my creation
  5. Hey that’s my hand!
  6. Mask Porn?

    Okay, so if use a knife just make sure you don’t have a really heavy hand. And after you get some done you can kinda pull it off. and I just slapped these pads on the nike frame while my TW pads are washing.
  7. Mask Porn?

    What I do is I pick at the stitches of the patch (around a corner) with an exacto knife until you got enough playroom to start cutting and picking more. Kinda easy after you get it started i have to cut a patch off some gray pads, I’ll post a pic in about two hours

    If im not mistaken, the memory foam pads have the patch on it. Been awhile, but you can cut that black patch w/ the W on it.
  9. How in the world can you change that call?

    Sorry, my honest mistake.
  10. How in the world can you change that call?

    I don’t like the overturn, but... If I’m Wolf, I’m telling Roberts “I didn’t have a foul, blah blah blah strike out. If any of us had it foul we’d call it.” Now if im talking to my partners, I’m going in and talking about how I should’ve worn a long sleeve tonight. “Hey that was just a straight uncaught pitch, let’s not accidentally pick up the wrong end of the stick.”

    I honestly forgot you were on here. Now is the sports coat just for the meeting Friday morning or to each location? And I’m shooting for both BBUC clinics next year

    Yeah, I wanted to go last year but I got caught up in something else. I’ll probably go to this upcoming one once my high school unit sends out the info so I know not to schedule anything
  13. College site apparel

    No, but I’m not going to BBUC. I was too late ): That’s the biggest thing I wanted to know, I don’t want to overdo it. I’m gonna look clean cut and professional, but I didn’t want to be that kid wearing a 3 piece in mid 80 weather.
  14. College site apparel

    So I’m attending a local college clinic, and I have no idea what to wear. It’s gonna be pretty warm so I don’t wanna kill myself with a full on suit. The host sent this in his email: School Site Attire: Come to the fields dressed like you believe you should come dressed for a College game (hint: it's not pre dressed or shorts. Think of it as an interview with the coaches before you even call a play. would business casual work? What do you college guys wear to the schools? :/
  15. Sunglasses Polarized or No

    @Stk004 if I remember correctly, little to no difference the in/outfield lenses. I remember the sales rep explaining that the outfield lenses were designed to help the ball stand out when looking up. I’m actually gonna stop by the Oakley vault tmrw, so I’ll try the “field” ones @BT_Blue I tried the golf ones for the lowlight reason after seeing Jerry Layne wear them (I’m pretty sure he wore them) on a night game in Anaheim this year.
