    Ball Stuck in Glove...Lodged?

    @lawump Is this intended to be a change, or should we go with the rule as written?

    Officials Depot vs Ump attire

    If you ever do an all black version I will buy several. Unfortunately the gray on the sides means it doesn’t match for my conferences. They all have the all black from Majestic or Smitty.

    Anybody have any info on the OD jacket? I would love a jacket that is similar to the Majestic.

    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    It has a little bit of stretch or give to it. This helps to make it easier to put the mask on and take it off. With the Force 3 stock harness I felt like I would put the mask on and then have to adjust it every once in a while and there is no adjustment needed with this harness. It goes on correctly every time. It is hard to quantify exactly how much better it is, but I love it and think it is worth the extra money.

    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    I have only worn the Rayflex harness on the F3 mask. Since I started wearing the F3 mask about 2 years ago, I haven't worn any other masks. I have had the Rayflex for about 1 year and it is much better than the original F3 harness. Sorry I can't compare how it does on other masks.

    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    It is 100% worth it in my opinion. The extra money is less than 1/4 of a game fee and it is much better quality. I had a problem with getting my Force 3 mask to sit right with it having to be worn tight, and this harness makes it so much better.

    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    I have one and it is excellent. I have a Force 3 v2 and it works great.

    2019 Changes

    Thanks. I understand why you can't share. I am sure there will be plenty or instruction at the clinics and on the hub closer to the season.

    Is there anywhere we can get access to this Randy Bruns video and the spreadsheet? Thanks.

    Does this run count?

    This is a time play. Run counts if R3 touched home before R2 was appealed at 2nd.

    Trying out for College

    I thought that might be the case since we just had the meeting on Sunday. I sent you a pm. I have been in the group for 2 years. Good luck and don't suck. It is a great group to be a part of.

    Where are you located?

    Is the game over?

    Why would the batter have to touch first base after he is out? What would be the penalty to him anyways, since he is already out? You wouldn't be able to call him out a second time.

    A plea to all umpires (especially my partners)

    The biggest problem with using the verbal "catch" for the tag up is that the player is allowed to leave on first touch. So by the time we make sure that all elements of the catch are there to verbalize/signal the catch the runner could legally be several steps off of the bag.
