  1. Douglas Custom Gear

    https://www.refereestore.com/smitty-by-douglas-umpire-chest-protector/ $259 here. What a bargain.
  2. Equipment Suggestions?

    At the level you are at and giving a nod to your finaces I would buy a Champion hard shell and a Diamond Big League mask. I would use the remainder to upgrade to the NB plate shoes and buy a Nutty Buddy. Good luck. edit. Also upgrade the stock CP harness to a razzer, delta flex or force 3.
  3. Fred Munster Feet

    Whose feet? Fred Gwynne or Herman Munster? I would check an industrial safety shoe company for something that size.
  4. CP Help Requested

    On my 13" Douglas the lower plate is 14-3/4" x 4-1/8". Hope this helps.

  6. Veterans Check In

    USNR 4 years active duty, 17 years reserve. Thanks to all for your service and wells wishes.
  7. Keeping shoes white

    LA's Totally Awesome is well.......wait for it.......AWESOME. I used to use Murphys but this is better and cheaper. Dilute it and it works very well. I seldom need to use Scrubbing Bubbles.
  8. I am pretty sure that was the All-Star FM4000 Magnesium with Wilson memory foam pads.
  9. Hunter W leaves game

    After being hit in the mask with a warm up pitch in the 6th inning umpire Hunter W. had to leave the game. U2 had to get the gear on.
  10. And I would never flip another mans meat either........
  11. Navy mask harness

    Call All-Star and order one although LRZ has a great deal.
  12. New ATL stadium

    Can't say much about the walk. I would Uber. Go early and enjoy the area. They have really tried to give you a reason to be there and have fun. We ate at Sweetwater Brewing.
  13. Shin Guards

    IMO the best for the money are the Honigs K2010. The come in four sizes and are absolute tanks. They are a little bulky and hot but, you will not feel a thing from a bat or a ball and they are only $60.
  14. Has anyone used this website?

    I have used them in the past for some things. Never had a issue. Quick shipping and reasonable prices.
  15. Mask with Two Separate Pad Colors

    I bet he has a pair very similar home on his other mask.
