  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    That, my baseball friends, is called PEAKING TOO EARLY!

    OUCH .................
  5. Old West Vest Frame (converted - Riddell)

    SOLD!! Thanks Griffin! @grk17
  6. Ok ...here we go ... I found an old West Vest frame on ebay last year. I had it fixed (right upper ear) and powder coated by Tony at Mask-it a dull-ish plain old non-metallic gray which I think turned out great. I used this frame last year for high school as you see in the photo (Michigan is still Navy required). I'm keeping everything but the frame. I've got more than $50 into this right now, but I'll let it go for $50. PM me if interesting (frame only) Paypal friends and family
  7. Old West Vest Frame (converted - Riddell)

    I'm not aware of anyone else that I work with that does. Like I said, I just did this to go with our navy required uniforms......And I must admit it looks pretty slick Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. No sht fair

    I've noticed this also @Jimurray .... obvious fair points, and rarely, on routine plays will you see the MLB guys signal a 'catch' with an out call
  9. Sunglasses Polarized or No

    I believe it's a perception / depth perception thing with the polarization, but you can call Oakley or chat w/ them online and they'll tell you.
  10. Burn out

    Because of a death in the family in early June, .... I had a difficult decision to make, which I knew was the right one. This year I was assigned a State Quarterfinal that I had to turn back because the family issue, and all of the minutia that follows such an incident, I chose not to umpire this summer and just be with the family as much as possible. BEST decision I've made in a long time because for the first time since 2010 .... I HAD A Summer that wasn't spent on a baseball field for 5 to 7 weekends in a row. Did I miss it ....yes, a little bit, but it was nice to get away and remove myself. What it did was refresh me and now I must say I'm looking forward to Spring and the next High School season! Stepping away for a bit helps considerably.
  11. Kneeling for National Anthem

    we're not talking about their issue though ...., we're talking about the 'pot they're stirring' amongst fans because that's all this 'kneeling' is doing.
  12. Hi everyone, ... if this is in the wrong forum, tell me to move it. Does anyone know how to change your indicator/notification light color for Tapatalk? Thanks!
  13. Tapatalk - Android (Samsung Galaxy S8)

    I found out via Tapatalk that the level of 'settings' aren't that refined yet. So, whatever color your phone's LED is for Tapatalk, ...that's what it is
  14. Kneeling for National Anthem

    you know, that's true ...and a good point that supports mine. He started all of this 'kneeling protest stuff' and it's gotten him no where but out of a job ....so the protest isn't gaining the real issue any attention, but only bad press for him. p.s. it's not working ....
  15. Kneeling for National Anthem

    exactly my point from earlier ...........
  16. Kneeling for National Anthem

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THIS!
  17. Kneeling for National Anthem

    They've stimulated a lot of 'outrage' ..... These so-called 'preliminary steps' have only created frustration so far. We may disagree that they're 'protests' are doing nothing, but what have the accomplished so far?
  18. Kneeling for National Anthem

    Fixing what's broken has NOTHING ....and I repeat, NOTHING to do with the National Anthem. Fight your fight someplace else, not on a field during the National Anthem. All they're doing is drawing negative attention to themselves and it's doing NOTHING to solve what they THINK they're fighting for. Idiots!
  19. NB base shoes

    Last place I'd look .... Why doesn't it show up on the New Balance site? That's strange to me .....
  20. NB base shoes

    Thanks Max, ....can't find that "Elements" version on the NB site, oh well. But ...yes, ....as you know, in the Great Lakes area, HS baseball starts out flipping COLD!
  21. Cuzzi's unusual position, mechanic

    agree. The photo posted appears that he's good where he is, but I need to watch the video closer
  22. NB base shoes

    Breath-ability is certainly important yes, and NO, they don't HAVE to be shiny. But that being said, .... they can't be DULL, like a suede shoe looks either! @MadMax .... you know shoes ....why can't they have a 'semi-shiny' shoe that breathes ?????
  23. Zett black

    Arik ..... geeeeeez
  24. NB base shoes

    as long as they're not in that 'matte' finish like the link photo. They better be more 'shiny' or at least 'shineable' ...but I think NB gets how the officials are about their shoes, considering they're the only player anymore
