  1. Research Needed for Graduate School Project

    I completed the survey. I believe any tool that will help do the job should be considered. Having said that, the tool needs to be perceived as 100% accurate. It wouldn’t do to give participants another way of questioning our calls.
  2. PUC/Indyball b4 Pro-School?

    Going through the school will trump any additional experience at a lower level. It will automagically qualify you for better baseball.
  3. Veterans Check In

    Army - Finance Specialist. Fort Benning, GA 1976 - 1978.
  4. New guy on the block

    I’m a Jersey City native myself. My grandfather founded Washington LL and was part of the founding of Pershing Field Babe Ruth. what part of the city?
  5. "play"

    I asked Ted Barrett the question about MLB and here was his response: "The plate guy is responsible for putting the ball back in play, many don’t point it but they have it." Very succinct.
  6. When is it time to hang it up?

    I have one reason to keep umpiring. My grandfather umpired in 1930 and there has been a member of my family (uncle, father, cousin, brother) umpiring since then. As it stands right now, I am the last of the line. I want to make to 2030, I'll be 73. There will b 100 years of Sansevere umpiring. All that other stuff is a factor, too.
  7. Hit or Fielders Choice?

    I locked this topic. The guest area is supposed to be free of our normal sarcasm. Let's keep it that way.
  8. New Feature - Member Map

    We are talking Cleveland...

  10. New Feature - Member Map

    @Umpire in Chief It may be me, but I can't save my location. I tried on my iPad and my laptop through Chrome. The SAVE button is unresponsive.
  11. Strike 3 Mechanic

    The guy that hooked me up with umpiring has a 5 syllable strike call and has been known to moon dance. He is liked by a lot of the schools. I don't understand it.
  12. Softball vs Baseball

    During the drills, I didn't move my head, only my eyes. The head instructor happened to be standing there and commented "that was a good job except you didn't move your head to follow the pitch." Me: "I work baseball where we are taught not to move our head, only the eyes." Instructor: "Really? I never heard of that before. It seems to work OK."
  13. Softball vs Baseball

    I had the same experience. They also taught to move your head when watching the pitch as PU.
  14. By popular demand...
  15. Captcha

    Warren is back. I think he's done some tweaking. I haven't had it since he came back.
