    Question re: Plate Shoes and Schutt HSM

    The HS Quarterback/Home Coming King/Girlfriend Stealer was named Wilson and drove a black and yellow Camaro is my guess.

    Equipment question

    Diamond BL is my recommendation for what you describe. The pads that it comes with are good enough for most games and can be upgraded later to TW. The frame is good for any level that most of us will ever see. I like the finish on the BL better than the painted finish on the standard model. Between the pads and the finish its worth the extra $30 IMO.

    Shin Guards with Mid-Cut Plates

    Agreed. Just get the right length. In this case, too long is not better.

    Champro Rampage

    @Thunderheads. Jeff- Lock it up please. It's sold. Thanks.
  8. Looking to sell an All Star steel that has had the lower plate removed and has been repowdercoated in gloss black. His is in very good shape and was used mostly as a back up. No dents or bends. This would be a great frame for a special occasion project (I can sent direct to Tony if you would like). I will ship this frame the next day for $30 PP F&F.

    Game 4 - RLI No Call

    I thought the Red Sox should have at least asked for video review. They said that Cora spoke to Ted Barrett. I thought it was RLI at the time of the play and nothing I saw on replay convince me it wasn't. That might have been my rooting interests coming out and clouding judgement. after all, I am still "convinced" that Armbrister interfered with Fisk in the 1975 WS. https://www.mlb.com/video/turner-scores-on-error-in-6th/c-2518182983?tid=63106348

    Problems with Plus POS Orders (again)

    Nope. I ordered the same thing earlier this year. I wanted an inexpensive lightweight black mask. I registered as a user and got a confirmation email very quickly and had great hopes. Waited a month with no response to any attempt to communicate. I finally called my credit card company and they sorted the mess out within a couple of days with a full refund. In the end I bought a Wilson AL from Offer Up. Good luck to you

    Epic Sports.com. Ever had any issues?

    I have bought from them and never had a problem. You should note that they don’t stock a lot and most stuff is drop shipped from the manufacturer. If you return something there is a significant restocking fee. I have never bought any thing used from them.
  13. I had t Hooks installed so I only had to send the lower plate. It was $32.50 inc shipping. Turned it around ASAP.

    Cheatin SOB

    Let's see @Jimurray.....4 of the best mlb umpires standing 60' away didn't see anything, no one on the Astros bench or on the staff saw anything but, Cody's uncle managed to figure this out from his basement man cave and you call someone you likely have never met a profane term and insult his mother? Really? Stay classy. Don't believe everything that you read on the Internet. The link below isn't from Codys uncle but, may have some merit about certain unsporting behavior in the ALCS. https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2018/10/16/report-astros-employee-accused-of-suspicious-behavior-throughout-postseason/
