    Palm Sunday

    I would ask if maybe they planned to go to a Ren Faire after the game? But then again... only the Queen is allowed to wear purple.

    Why wear a throat guard?

    A throat guard isn't NEEDED. But if it makes you feel more comfortable working back there. Then get one. I personally am a fan of the standard 6" throat guard. But I sprung for the Samurai Gears one.

    Damn! That's unfortunate and a little concerning!
  5. Didnt Altuve do this last year to the same comedic results?
  6. Kid is quickly becoming one of my favorite of the younger umpires. Always solid on the plate and bases. And knows when not to take crap but can handle when he needs to take a softer approach.

    Umplife Shin Straps . . .

    Nope. Perfectly happy with then straight out of the box.

    So, what I am getting is that neither the MAG nor the Shovel are baseball resistant like the Force3 mask or cp was for a bit there? Lol Get better soon Keith.

    Umplife Shin Straps . . .

    Ditto here. I have the Force3 shins and am more than happy with the straps on there.

    So... SWMBO thought she would be funny and hold them until Easter to surprise me. But I let her sleep in and take the kids this morning. So she decided to be nice and give them to me today. They got delivered yesterday and, thankfully she is a stay-at-home mom, so she was here to sign for them.

    Chin Chopped Mask

    Depending on where you live, most fabricating shops can do it for you. You can also send it to Tony at Maskitsports.com . You may not want to do that if you need a quick turnaround.

    Nike Ti or Adidas

    Saw it too on there. Also the Nike with black pads that the guy wanted $450 PLUS $150 shipping for it!!! And you guys got on my case for asking $400 shipped for my last one!

    Samurai Throat Guard

    That is the exact mask set up on my main rig for the last few years up until last season when I went to the Nike. I had thought about selling it. But now that I (allegedly)have two Samurais coming, I might hold onto it.

    My second one hasnt even left So's shop. It was ordered 3 days after the first one.

    Samurai Throat Guard

    This is the precise reason why I chopped one and left one. I think the larger throat guards like the Spyder, Zett, Shovel, Samurai, etc swing and fit better with the chopped chin guard. If I decide to only keep one Nike. It will be the chopped on. On a personal note... the one guy that has been wanting one for years (hey... that's me!). Has his Samurai throat guard sitting somewhere in LA (I'm betting US Customs) for the last 4 or 5 days! Its brutal seeing everyone with theirs. And I have no clue when I will get mine!

    Messenger was a blessing on this point. Since it seems to be difficult to get a hold of Tony, being able to contact him through DM was a blessing.

    I could have sworn is was a pitcher. But you are probably right. Thanks for finding this though.

    First piece of new equipment in a while!

    It's funny how much David Rackley yesterday in Houston is getting mentioned. Mostly for the tan LUC padding. But also a few times for his call at the plate.

    I think those are mine. According to the tracking numbers, mine have been in LA for a few days. Probably working through customs or something.
