    Catch or no Catch

    I would guess not. Think he is just merely showing a HS field that has sunken dugouts. My personal takeaway... it's good to play at Huntington Beach HS! Look at that thing!
  3. I dont recall having BR having closed bases?

    Feel like when they released the BB2000 chest protector it was the beginning of the end.
  5. I love the graphic at the end of the clip. "Tight inside zone" lol

    Back then? Yes. They were the cream of the crop back then.

    @Vegas_Ump, there is a GREAT video from Black and Blue Umpire Camps (it's on Facebook) with Adam Dowdy instructing, talking about taking plays at the plate. The main reason I bring this up, is that he talks about NOT starting point of plate for plays at the plate. Instead, starting 3BLX and adjusting from there. He states "since this is where you want to be to start, why start 2-4 steps away from that starting point." Or something along those lines. As for PB/WP. The whole 3BLX thing has to go out the window. You are just trying to not get into anyone's way. If you end up 3BLX, great! But it isnt a necessity.

    You sure about that? I think the minimum to claim if you arent one of the four select businesses is around $4000 I think.

    Shut a game down

    MLB has already reached the ejection number they waited until mid May to hit. And it's only mid April. Why should we be any different. Lol

    HS JV Ejection on Saturday

    One thing that I really like is a change in the written warning verbiage. Instead of saying "if you continue, you will be restricted/ejected." I now like "if you continue, I will have no choice but to restrict/eject." It puts the onus back on them to behave. That their actions, not yours, will result in their punishment. THEY are making you do this.

    Ejections. Ejections Everywhere...

    And being in Washington state... I can only assume you are south of me. This, AA is a Southern sympathizer! Lol
  13. I was pleasantly surprised to not see someone idiot get off a "well, he deserves this after the way he acted in Houston" blast. Or something along those lines.

    You can KEEP THAT CRAP!
  15. Anderson got ejected for rejoining the "fight" when Renteria and Sveum got a bug up their asses. HELL, nothing more than warnings should have happened beyond warnings if the pitcher would have just kept his dumb mouth shut! The day before, Maldonado hit one and pimped his homerun. So Anderson just returned the favor. You can even see the two of them talking and smiling at each other as Maldonado walks Anderson up the line. Anderson even pats Maldonado on the shoulder as a "yeh, I get it." It isnt until the idiot F1 starts walking over and yelling that any of this starts!
