    1st Player Ejection

    Never talk to parents and never give anyone your name unless they are signing the check!! In this day and age people complain and moan when things don't go their way. Even when in the wrong its always someone else's fault. Society cant handle authority figures. Just look how Law Enforcement is treated in this country. And of course its a daddy coach!!

    Thigh Protection

    I have been using the McDavid Hex compression tights since 2006. I still have the same pair and its still going strong. I bought them from Lesters Upstate Sports in NY. I currently don't see it on their website. Ump-Attire has these which are new from Force3 https://www.ump-attire.com/Baseball-Umpire-Equipment/Clothing-Apparel/Under-Apparel/F3-TIGHTS_Force3-Umpire-Tights-with-Kevlar-Pads

    Sizing Comparison Smitty vs Honig Pullover?

    I bought the Smitty Convertible jacket in XXL. It definitely fits like a 3XL.

  8. I bought a System 7 this season. I have had 2 shoulder surgeries over the last few years. The System 7 is what I was looking for in regards to shoulder and collar bone protection. It works. Shoulder strap adjustments did wonders for getting rid of that tight bulky feel. I like it. I have no issues in regards to throwing after the strap adjustments. But my preference is handing the ball to the catcher so I rarely throw it anyway. My old protector is the WV Gold. I will be sending it to Team Wendy for some love.
