  1. Wilson Platinum Shin Guards 18.5" - Not game used

    Sold @Thunderheads
  2. I went to CDP for the first time last summer and had a blast! So far, I'm available for weeks 1 and 2. If you are looking for an umpire for those weeks please email me. Thanks, Jesse Hein jhein1992@gmail.com
  3. The title says it all. Anyone who has one to sell please message me.
  4. Appeal of pulled foot

    Right, but if you're 100% sure, you're not going to change your call. And if you're not 100% sure his foot was off the bag, you're calling him out. This is just how I've been taught...
  5. Appeal of pulled foot

    Right, and if you have hard evidence that his foot was off the bag, you wouldn't go to your partner for help.
  6. Appeal of pulled foot

    I've always thought that a "safe, off the bag call" could not be reversed since the BU is confirming he saw with certainty that the foot was off the bag. Similar to a "yes he did" call on a check swing.
  7. Appeal of pulled foot

    I always include "I'll come to you(or I'll be looking if I'm on the plate) for a pulled foot if necessary" in my pregame, but I guess I'll have to be more specific. I've had situations where a BU will come directly to me without making a call, but I've never had a PU refuse to give input if I've already made a call.
  8. Appeal of pulled foot

    Here's the situation: R2 and R3, I'm in C, two outs. Ground ball to F6, throw to F3 requires a decent stretch, I call BR out. Immediately, the batting team begins to argue that F3's foot came off of the bag and request that I get help. I go to my partner and ask if he held the bag. My partner then calls time and motions for me to come talk to him. He asks what I had in the play and I tell him I had an out, but was not in a good position to see a pulled foot. He responds that if I had an out we're sticking with out. I assumed he blanked and didn't watch for the pulled foot so he couldn't make a call. However, after the game he told me I shouldn't have made a call and should've come to him immediately since it was an obvious pulled foot. I responded that in my view it looked like he had the bag, but he had a better view which is why I went to him after the offense appealed. He then said that he couldn't change a call after I made it. What is the proper mechanic? BTW for context this was a men's baseball game using OBR.
  9. CP under plate coat

    Those of you who own plate coats, do you wear something over your CP? If so, what? I'd like something that won't make me overheat and will fit nicely over the CP without being too loose(or tight for that matter) around the neck.
  10. Navy blue plate coat 44L

    Pics? Also, I wear a 44R. Is this sized to fit over a CP?
  11. 1st time going to CDP, need some info

    I got back home yesterday and the experience exceeded my expectations! Every umpire should jump at any opportunity to attend a week at this facility. The guys I met were great people and I had so much fun interacting with the kids through pin trading. My bunkmates in 41A along with the other guys I formed friendships with made the week fly by! The only negative part of the experience for me was that I was slightly unprepared for the cold weather. Mornings and nights were extremely uncomfortable!!! However, I now know exactly what to bring next summer...
  12. 1st time going to CDP, need some info

    Thank you so much @MadMax, this is some great info! I'm currently packing and feel like I'm embarking on months long vacation! My gear and uniforms take up two bags on their own!
  13. 1st time going to CDP, need some info

    One more question as I prepare to drive up tomorrow: What interaction, if any, do I have with the team that I am representing? I hooked up with a random team through this forum so I don't have a personal relationship with them. Thanks for the replies. It's a bit unnerving for me to go into something knowing next to nothing about what I'm getting myself into, but I'm looking forward to it!
  14. Hi All, So I decided on a whim to look into CDP for this summer and ended up hooking up with a team for week 13. The info provided in various threads on this site is excellent and I've read through the info provided on the website as well. However, I still have some questions/curiosities... 1. I keep all of my uniforms hanging in my car and my equipment in my trunk since parking lots are the umpire's locker room. Will I be able to continue this practice at CDP or will I need to bring all of my stuff into the bunk? 2. Do most guys bring laptops/is this acceptable? I plan to disconnect from the "real world" as much as possible and focus on the experience, but I may need to send the occasional email for work. 3. Once the tournament portion starts, should I still expect 3 games per day? Will I know my entire schedule in advance? 4. How cold does it get? Do I really need to bring my jackets? 5. What's the average age of umpires at CDP? I'm on the younger side, but don't care either way. I'm just curious. Thanks in advance guys. Also, any info worth noting that's not covered in my questions would be greatly appreciated!
