    Volleyball State Finals

    Group Position Date & Time Sport & Level Site Home Away Fees Status Accept Decline 107584 R1 11/10/2018 Sat 3:00 PM Volleyball, State Finals William Paterson University, Rec Center TBA TBA $75.00 Accepted on 10/28/2018 State Finals for volleyball! Second go round for me. This time I am sure that I will not be as edgy as I was last time. Can't wait for the match. It is a real joy having the best seat in the house to watch two really talented teams go at it. I will try to not suck. But, as I say to SWMBO, I can't make any promises

    Batter runs to first on dropped second strike

    When this happens, please post the video. I will enjoy watching the OHC come unglued, being ejected and the PU grabbing the stankiest end of any stick ever.

    You Make The Call

    Note F2's non-compliant helmet.

    Angle vs Distance

    Because he was tracking a breaking ball that was falling below the zone, which took his eyes off the swing of the bat. That is different than being too close to make the correct call.

    @Richvee I think this is when it happened right?

    Batters helmet

    Next season I would venture that we will be dealing with the Stanton shield. I saw a lot of them on other than HS teams. FED 1.5.2 . A face mask/guard may be attached to batting helmets at the time of manufacture. All face mask/guards shall meet the NOCSAE standard at the time of manufacture. A face mask/guard specifically designed for a particular helmet model may be attached after manufacture, provided that procedure is approved by the manufacturer and meets the NOCSAE standard at the time of manufacture. Are they approved by the manufacturer?

    Trying out for College

    Don't suck? And I would suggest making some phone calls to those who matter prior to just showing up at a tryout. Letting someone know who you are and perhaps having others who will vouch for your abilities on and off the field will be very beneficial to your prospects rather than just walking in off the street.
  11. Even more so if BR was not on the bag and an out was negated.

    Following a ball that comes off the bat straight, or nearly straight, up and back. Occasionally when I do this, my throat guard gets caught on my chest protector when I lower my chin after I realize there is no play on the ball.

    Force Play

    I might go with "The ball beat him" or "The throw didn't beat him."
