  1. Gear and Apparel Setup

    You umpires who use the rods across the back seats, aren't you afraid somebody will break in your car and steal gear?Just wondering.

  4. Game management Q

    The funny remarks about mooning,that's two coach etc. would be great to do in the last game of your umpiring career.
  5. Throat Guard

    Listen to Brian c14,guard needs to reach cp.
  6. Shoe shining

    After each game clean with a mixture of Murphys oil and water mix.Then use one of those shine sponge from the shoe store.During the season 3 or 4 times,clean with saddle soap .It is especially made for leather.If you rub hard enough it will remove the marks on your shoes.Then buff and it will give a good shine.You can also use the shine sponge on it or hair spray.I use shine sponge instead of shoe polish because it gives almost as good as shine and only takes a minute to put on and after the first inning the shoes are dirty anyway.The key is saddle soap or some type of leather conditioner.Give it a good work over after the season before you store than away.
  7. 1st EJ in 600+

    The ejection you regret the most is the one you did not make.IMO good job.
  8. LLWS - Williamsport

    Congratus John.I know a fellow umpire who went in 2010.He said it was a life time experience.They have discussions after the games wanting your input and giving you input.According to him, a very rewarding experience.Do not worry about getting hungary plenty of food and it is good. GOOD LUCK

  12. No Clue Partners

    I work little league.Never had a problem with coaches that they had too many in the dugout as long as I did it before first pitch.I support Tank,he did not write the rule book,he just enforces it.That's all you have to tell them if they ask but be nice about about it.
  13. First EJ of the year

    Depending on what rules you are playing under,their is usally nothing in the rule book that reads you have to give a warning.
  14. Blood boiling ... and it's prevention

    You could go to drastic measures by telling the coaches you have one minute or what ever ,then you are leaving.No umps,no game.Do not put up with this folishness
