  1. Cleaning New Balance Plate Shoe

    I do the same thing. Keeping it simple. My shoes still look brand new.
  2. I prefer the Fetcheimer by Davis over the Smitty Poly Stretch. I have both and will wear the Smitty on a crazy hot day. The Fetcheimer just look sharper to me and hold their look and crispness longer Just my honest opinion. Pants are a mans personal preference.
  3. Looking to buy Honigs Polywools...

    Me too. Just ordered some more today.
  4. CP under plate coat

    i I am looking for a gray that matches my pants. The black in the picture is a moister wicking shirt. Anything other is too hot on most days. I don't like the look of my WVG TW under the PC with no shirt, but to each their own.
  5. Replacing the foam in the Gold or Platinum

    You guys are all making me really glad that I did not procrastinate on the Team Wendy deal for my Gold. Normally I would have but for some reason I didn't. Thank God cause the Wilson foam was hot and thick. If you can go with Kevlar. I feel nothing when hit and am low profile.
  6. Under Armour "Base" Shoes

    I just clean my white bottoms after every game. Dawn dish soapy water in a spray bottle and a stiff brush does the trick every time. They still look like new. No breakdown of the heel cushion as of yet. Then gain I have several base shoes that I use depending on the quality of the field I am working on. Usually after 2-3 years I want something new anyway.
  7. Hit by Pitch or Drop 3rd

    I know what to call. Just posting and asking for others.
  8. Had a SS do it this year. I figured I did not have a rule to hang my hat on and his coach let him do it so I left it aline. He made the plays but his team got 10 runned so we left early.
  9. Hit by Pitch or Drop 3rd

    OBR & FED RULES: R1 & R2 are on....2 outs...3-2 count....batter swings...no contact BUT Pitch hits batter in the foot....and gets away from catcher...everyone runs...WHAT DO WE HAVE? Please cite the rule number...
  10. Bullpen interferes

    We had this today in the Illinois HS State Tournament semis...the 'protector' in the bullpen fielded a two hopper... then dropped when he realized what he had done...batted ball would of been a true triple....the runners were scored and the B-R was awarded 3rd....
  11. I have a hat coming in the mail that is said to be made of the same material as the Smitty pants. This should be interesting. I will report back.
  12. I like both the Fetchheimer Poly Wools and the Smitty's. Just depends on the situation. Normally I go with the Fetch's but today in the Regional finals (75 degrees today) both my partners wear Davis so I will attempt to match with the Smitty's which are much darker than the Fetch's. The comfort factor between the two is minor to me. I do like the feel of the Smitty on my body and also like their interaction with my Force3 shins. I say have both and then you have options.
  13. "New" Reebok Magistrate

    Nice find.
  14. Why is this umpire smiling?

    Me too. I just loosen them up in the first inning by simply mashing them with my fingers. As far as the protection I feel nothing when hit. TW's do their job which is all I really care about.
