  1. Honigs PolyWools $60

  2. NCAA Exam Thread

    Answer would be C. The first pitch to Baker legitimized Charles's at bat, so the correct batter would be Daniel. Daniel is now out and you bring up Edward.
  3. Foul tip

    Only if it is strike 3. This is a foul tip since it went sharp and direct to the mitt and then was secured by the catcher.
  4. Looking to buy Honigs Polywools...

    I have two plate and two base of the pbs1 and pbs2 in size 36. They are only about 28.5 I’m in length and maybe have one in extra length for adjustments
  5. Douglas Custom Gear

    Gap protection for sure. I also recommend getting t-hooks for a more snug/slim fit.
  6. GA Contacts

    I am about an hour away and don't do Little League. Sorry. I do have a couple of travel ball contacts in that area if he is interested.
  7. Spiff, you still in GA?  I have a buddy in Kennesaw looking for a Little League contact.

      I am in GA, but I am about an hour away from there and do not do Little League.  I have a couple of travel ball contacts in that area that I call College ball with if he is interested.

    What happened to Tony Thompson having the ACC?

    Size might help you get them sold.
  11. 1st ejection(s) of the season

    I agree with you that it is poorly worded and think the intent is only in protest with an umpires call. I do not think they meant when a player throws a bat or helmet because he is upset with himself. The wording is not clear sketched way so it is up to interpretation.
  12. PIckoff throw to SS

    Everyone else has you covered on why this is a legal feint, but I want to point out what seems to be a misunderstanding of an occupied base. 2nd base is occupied because there is a runner there. The runner is what makes a base occupied, where it sounds like you were thinking the fielder was what makes a base occupied.
  13. sliding past 2nd on ball four

    They said the runner should have been out because the award ended when he went the past the base. They also said that the crew should have come in without being asked because it was a rule misapplication instead of a judgment call.
  14. 1st ejection(s) of the season

    Do you eject a catcher when he picks up the offensive teams bat and throws it towards their dugout in an effort to be helpful? A black and white reading of the rule would say he is ejected for deliberately throwing a bat, but I sure hope nobody would eject for that.
  15. 1st ejection(s) of the season

    I disagree. There has to be gray area in the rule. The rule states the player is to be ejected for deliberately throwing a bat or helmet. What would you say if your catcher was ejected for throwing a bat towards the offensive team's dugout? What if your catcher is ejected because he takes his helmet off and throws it ten feet away while trying to catch a popup? I know these would be two ridiculous ejections, but reading the rule without interpretation would lead to these ejections. So Ricka56 and myself interpret the rule to mean deliberately throwing equipment in disgust of an umpires call. Now if the player chunked his helmet in disgust of himself I would give him a warning and tell him he was on thin ice. I just don't think the rule can be read in black and white.
