  1. When I'm logged in, I'm unable to see any forums other than off topic, and I can't message anyone.  Is this issue affecting anyone else?

      Looking at the map maybe more like 10. To drive it can take about 1.5 to 2 hrs. The secret is knowing when to go. I can make it in less lime if I leave my house before 8 am or after 2-3 pm. 

      Saturday traffic is horrible I have to leave an extra hour early to ensure I get to my games on time. But luckily there aren't as many games this time of year. 

      I've pleaded with my wife to get a boat. There is a public ramp about a mile from my house. and the Whalehead Club (If you saw that large yellow building in Corolla -- please remember it is not said like the car it is like Koala co-rah-la) has a public dock. We could load a cart in the boat be there in about half an hour then only need to walk 200-300 yards to the beach. 

      She hasn't said no, she just says we have better things to use our money for (ie bills).

      Ahh I wish I knew you were there. Would have loved to meet.

      I love Corolla. While it takes a long time to drive the 5 linear miles from my home to Corolla that's where we go to the beach. There and Corova ( North of Corolla no paved roads).

  5. SNOW! I'm losing games to SNOW!

  6. As many of you know last weekend I had a Florida Collegiate Try-out. Well all the hard work has paid off. I found out today that I made it. I am now a Florida Collegiate Umpire. Great opportunity and looking forward to it.

  7. Turns out the busted wrist is actually broken, not just bruised as the doctor first diagnosed. I'm on the Disabled List for 6-8 weeks.

  8. I'm at 109 likes and no sticker for under my username. I'm that special.

      Sorry it's not done automatically. It's something I do manually every few weeks. I will update you both.

      You're so lucky. My HS & College season is basically over and I had a record number of rain/snow outs.

  11. Wow - went over 1000 "likes" on this site. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing. Do I spend too much time here?

  12. I'm skipping my eighth grade "graduation" to instead overnight in SEATAC and fly to Atlanta for my first two MLB games, SEA@ATL!! Never been more EXCITED!

  13. First taste of college ball Feb 18 and 19...gotta sharpen up on my NCAA rules

  14. I have been assigned to my first High School Baseball Game that will be played next week. I will be working with Independent League/College Umpire Kurt Branin and my fellow Little League/Travel Ball and now High School Umpire Jim White who happens to be a World Series Umpire. Great Crew for my first High School game. I'm Blessed and Grateful. :)

  15. The purpose of a forum such as Umpire Empire is to communicate, right ?!

  16. Warren, I would still argue for the Nike pro combat shirts. Reasoning, yes they do cost more however unlike the c9 they don't bleed into other clothes when washed. They use flat seem stitching that means they don't cut into you. They come in regular, fitted, compression, cold, thermal and vented. Giving guys the largest array of options inside a single brand and known sizing/style. There is a reasoning that every MLB guy and most MLB players wear them even though nike doesn'...

  18. Hello, I've visited your site before but just signed up for the premium membership. I have a couple of questions. How can I order the book? Is there a code for the 10% discount at ump attire? Can you give me access to the blog? It looks like you need a gmail account so I signed up up as jaygfour@gmail.com.
