  1. All, It has come to our attention that there are a fair amount of transactions that take place between us U-E members. In an effort to improve the site and make everyone involved more comfortable, I am creating this thread (sticky) within the Buy, Sell, Trade forum where U-E members can mention their good transaction experiences, and, just in case, their NOT so good experiences. In the situation you do have a poor, or less desireable transaction, please be fair. No name calling, no embellishing, period! This is your warning. Good transactions should be mentioned as such, ....(think eBay): good communication, fast payment, equipment in good condition, etc, etc. If you'd simply like to start out by stating the members in which you've had good expereince with, you can list them, this way eveyone can see all at once, it's up to you. I have been on different forums that use a thread like this and it can be very helpful to people who are purchasing or selling something for the first time. If you have any questions, PM me. BE FAIR, BE NICE I will start: GOOD TRANSACTIONS WITH: Jocko Conlon FranklinT JaxRolo Slo8140 If I've forgotten someone, let me know, I'll add you
  2. he was seen many times during the CWS whining about things on the field .......... u2 clearly said to him "stop pointing Don" ....and he kept up with his antics
  3. COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't come on here like this and tease!! You just can't!
  4. Mike, ONCE AGAIN I've deleted a post that's a duplicate from you on this forum. Your post from yesterday was deleted and I just changed your post from April 28th and updated your weeks you're available. It's not that difficult. Please utilize the rules that everyone else follows for this forum. Just in case you haven't seen the rules: @tpatience
  5. maybe without the "flinch" it wouldn't be as bad?
  6. You do understand that this is coming down from above to the MLB umpires ..... "wear this stuff on these days please "'s a part of their contract
  7. Mark Uyl didn't look happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He's always at our umpire camp I attend in February, and MHSAA officials director ....
  8. No catch (DEFINITIONS) R3 scores, appeal answer is SAFE. 8-2-2 Art 6, a, 2 (leaving a base on a caught fly ball before the ball is first touched) Gee @maven ...I didn't know you could give impromptu quizzes AND hand out credits!
  9. what I noticed is that the Louisville coach is a whiner!
  10. I've stated this in a facebook post ............ I think it would look better overall with a standard black mask and harness, and just have the blue pads!
  11. All .... Here is a pair of All-Star LGU 2000 17" leg guards. Used pretty extensively, but still have some life. Make an offer I also have 2 UN-USED Shock Doctor standard cups that came with the Shock Doctor Leggings that Ump-Attire used to sell. Perfect if you have a bunch of young umpires just starting out. PM with interest ....... Paypal friends and family only Thanks .........
  12. obligatory June bump ............
  13. Hi all ..... Well ......It's time for one of my masks to go. I now have 4 and it's tough to decide, but original All-Star custom job is the one I've decided on. This was done by Tony at Mask-It ... Matte black, and he took the " i-bar vision" tag off for me also. On here is an All-Star sunshield and gray/silver LMX pads. Gray vinyl on the outside, tan leather on the inside. The FM25 is a work horse! Known as a catchers mask but anyone who's used them know that first, yes, it IS a dual bar mask, but you don't notice it because of the iBar vision bars (flat), and .... VERY light for a hollow steel mask. Plus, it's durable as a M4A1 Sherman! Throat guard I'm keeping (it's in the photo, but I'm keeping it) LMX pads are used, but not very much ...still in good shape! I have over $100 in this rig .... PM me with offers please. Paypal Friends and family
  14. Oh doubt ....... I agree 100% and have no problem with that at all! As a matter of fact, I think that's why he called it a strike!
  15. college and high school ALL DAY LONG ....... but at that level, that's 'in' ......
  16. sounds like laziness to me!!
  17. WOW is that INSIDE for an MLB game! High School .... all day long .....however ...... that being said ...kicking your helmet will get you tossed every time!
  18. that call would have pissed me off too!!! Nothing .....then all the sudden, ...OH, OK, go to first ..... geeeez
  19. I wish the bottom wasn't "modeled" ......
  20. My assumption is that they did it to sort of match the teams uniforms (caps) as they were all 'army drab' this year for Memorial Day .......
  21. I don't do that. thinking maybe that it's caused by small stones from the dirt when they get kicked up?
  22. like little chalk marks ..... haven't been hit that much!
  23. I thought I posted this but it may not have 'taken' ..... however's the final iteration and my goal from the start: I wanted a navy trim mask (MHSAA is still navy required) so here it is: Original West Vest Mask (pre Dyna Lite I think) ...I had Tony at Maskit take the vertical bars off of the throat extension so it looks similar to a Riddell Power mask ....and had him powder coat it in "primer gray" with a clearcoat over top. Pads are my favorite, All-Star LUC, in navy, Honigs sunshield, WV harness, and WV patch from old WV pads velcro attached over the All Star logo.
