    Selected to State

    Super happy for you! Well deserved and you are one of the best umpires in that chapter. I'm bummed we never got to call together while I was there. Enjoy every second of it.

    2019 CBUA Video #9 - Catcher's Interference

    Thanks for the great explanation Jason. The coach from Sam Houston took it much better than I was expecting. I figured someone was gonna go ballistic on a play like this.

    Ejections. Ejections Everywhere...

    Welcome to Texas @HokieUmp. I just got back and couldn't be happier. There really is some fantastic baseball here. I'm in the DFW area too @BlueRanger. Just moved back a month ago. All of your ejections are good in my book. Good job trying to get the HC to handle the bad parent. There is a reason I don't call those age groups anymore and its the parents. You don't see it quite as badly in the HS ranks luckily.

    2018 Mid-American Umpire Clinic

    I did the clinic twice. You will have to do some pretending, it is part of getting reps. But the instructors are great, you will be on information overload. Just be a sponge, hustle everywhere, and go in with an open mind. They will make you a better umpire. I plan to try the advanced clinic next year, can't make the clinics this year.

    Shin guards question

    Agree with all said above. I bought the F3's a couple years back and they are by far the best ive ever tried. Comfortable, stays in place, and you don't feel a thing when you take a shot head on. The diamond lites do not offer enough protection. I took a straight shot in a game, and immediately retired them. It almost dropped me. Save up the money and only buy a pair once, it is worth it.

    Another Force play slide INT video

    Great to see you back @Grayhawk. After slowing down the video you can see that he is still in the air when he initially makes contact on the slide. Im sure thats why he slid late to break up the play. I would have called this FPSR at full speed most likely, its just not as cut and dry as others. I know people want to see the hard contact and automatically say "its FPSR". It's very close to being a legal slide if he starts to slide just a foot earlier and then makes hard contact.

    Another Force play slide INT video

    Do you see interference on this play Maven? It looks bad because the contact was hard going into 2nd, just curious how others see the play. I've rewatched it a few times and it is definitely a bit of a late slide, but he appears to make contact with the defender on top of 2B, and he slides directly into the bag.

    Horrible news - @grayhawk

    Don't know how I missed this. Terrible news. All wishes for a speedy and full recovery to @grayhawk. I've always appreciated his insight and advice. Please keep us updated on his recovery.

    Left handed pick off (with video)

    I have him stepping towards home. Look where his foot ends up and the direction he runs off the mound. But thats just from a couple viewings on this angle.

    Force3 Shin Fit

    Wolfe, Did you pull out the inner padding? it makes them lower profile that way if you prefer.
