    Samurai Gears Website/Mizuno Pro Plate Shoes

    I wish i could get them in 15. I talked to someone there by e-mail when I asked if Mizuno ever made larger sizes. He said no, but there have been several/many people who have asked about it. Maybe they will make some in the future.

    Stripes, Get well soon! I am going through sort of the same thing, but it's with a pair of bad knees that cost me my whole summer season, and a ton of really good games. I hate every moment of it, and it's driving me crazy. The only things I've found that help is to work really hard on rehab (if you can), and hope for a lot of grace to see me though. Sometimes we have to accept that our bodies break down sometimes and we have to let it heal. Thank God that we live in a time where the medical arts have learned so much about healing the human body that injuries that used to end careers are once we can come back from.

    Online Clinic

    UIC, I understand why you like this idea so much, but in all honesty I hate it. this year I got so busy with work, illness, and the other sports i worked that I missed the day i had to see the video to be tournament eligible (I literally thought it was a Monday, not a Sunday when it closed, I set a day aside to watch and study it, one day too late), not that it matters at my age very much. That weekend or even just two days to get away and concentrate on Baseball and enjoying the company of fellow umpires is such a great thing for me to enjoy/participate in, it was a perfect way to start getting mentally ready for the season. This year it was just another video presentation I had to do I really hope next year they will have on-site meetings, and especially because it might be my last one before I am too old/slow to umpire college baseball anymore.

    NCAA Exam Thread

    Gosh, I can't wait to see these answers, I only got a stinking 94% this year. What an embarrassment. I'm going to be kicking myself for days because of it. I have how any of those questions could be missed, though the ones I am worried for some reason are the appeal questions.

    FED OBS/MC rule

    Like Maven I've used this play to teach OBS/INT/MC in new umpire's classes and local associations, and his call is exactly correct. OBS/trainwreck, no MC.
  8. Thanks for the replies so far. I took the test as soon as I got the e-mail closed book and got a 90 or something like that. It was a classic FED test, with at least two or three badly written questions and answers IMO. If OHSAA decides to do this every year for Class 1 umpires they ought to write their own tests and stay away from the FED test.

    MadMax/Schutt XV retrofit

    Schutt is still making it but using the trade name "Adams" for the CP. I bought one in October to replace the original Schutt CP made like it (whatever it was called.) Even with the weird harness it fit me well, but Max might be seeing it soon too! .
  10. For those of you outside Ohio, we do not take a rules exam every year once we are Class 1 officials (top designation). As an experiment the OHSAA is offering a 50 question test to us and asking us to take it. If you are a Class 1 OHSAA umpire I'd be very interested in your opinions of the test and the questions on it. Thanks.

    Carlucci Hall of Fame Model

    I wear this exact protector, the one who buys it will enjoy it for many years. Best protector I have ever worn, and I worn just about all of them. GLWS

    Plus POS in Trouble?

    Just to update, I did get the CP yesterday, and other than the strapping it seems to be a very well-made protector. Looks like UA is getting some more $$$ in the morning.

    Plus POS in Trouble?

    Thanks for the report! The problem is I need the gear I ordered, and some kind of reply to my calls and messages on his site would be greatly appreciated.

    Plus POS in Trouble?

    Hello! I sent in an order to +pos on 10/3, got an e-mail saying it was shipped and a USPS tracking number. To make a long story short the USPS still has a tracking number but no package, and it should have been here last week. Anyone know what is going on? I cannot find anyone to talk to there? Thanks!
