  6. Douglas Chest Protector vs. Team Wendy West Vest

    Get the T-Hooks for sure. Also, make sure you get the gap protection (flat plate-style). WV w/ TW I believe has gone for $250+ here? Try to do a search in the for sale/trade forum. I don't delete posts, I just lock them, so they should come up! Good luck!
  7. wrong name on lineup card

    That was my point with the number. If Joe Smith is on the card and it's Joe Smyth on the field (or vice versa) ..... if the number is correct for Joe Smi(y)th, then that's who that is. You can also look to ensure there isn't a Smith AND a Smyth.
  8. wrong name on lineup card

    Tha'ts easy ....2 words .... PLAY_ON ..... Smith, Smyth, SMithe, doesn't matter ......especially if you have a correct number. My God, a mis-spelled name? Please! Choose your battles and play the flippin' game
  9. wrong name on lineup card

    I've never heard of a line up card "mis spelling" that forfeited a game???? That's ridiculous, and umpires that do stuff like this give us ALL a bad name
  10. This forum has nothing to do with equipment .... let's keep it that way, thank you.
  11. Scott, .... you go up 2 sizes on this to do the plate?
  12. Nike Ti Black-Riddell Power-Wilson items-etc

    Sorry to say, but Aaron 'went dark' on me last year sometime as well. I'm actually surprised at his good reputation
  13. Keeping shoes white

    Just don't us SB on your shoes EVERY time you clean them. These cleaners aren't meant for shoes and their chemicals can be quite harsh. For lots of dirt and mud, and every now and then, sure, but I wouldn't do it after every game.
  14. Keeping shoes white

    This link should help. There are a TON of threads about cleaning your shoes. @BALL4 has my remedy, but to be more specific: Get a spray bottle from Home Depot and put in a cap-ful of Murphy's Oil Soap, then fill with water. This is a great cleaner that works wonders on keeping white soles clean.
