    What mask is this? wilson titanium? Or did Wilson ever make a look alike??

    Looks like a dented Wilson titanium 

    Agreed. And the coloring is most likely due to the lighting or material it is laying on.

    We tried that a few times back in Little League - I don't recall it ever working.  Either R2 doesn't bite, or he's really fast, or F1 also airmails past F8 and R2 scores, or F8 makes a crap throw to F5.

    In other words, why make 2 or 3 throws when 1 will probably do?

    If I had a nickel for every time I or one of my partners missed one of those loops with a belt, I'd have a SH*#load of nickels.

    I'll have to pay more attention this season to what pants guys are wearing. For the longest time, this was a Honigs area due to them having a store close by in Salem. But since they closed, it has become more Ump-attire and Davis. Actually a lot of Davis since he is the shirt supplier for the state. So it is just easier to get stuff from him when you order the shirt.

    @JimKirk I know you work with Majestic. Is there any hope for us young guys to be able to get our hands on the Majestic jacket?

    We spoke with Majestic about this several years back. They were no longer interested in making it.

    It is time to let go of that ex-girlfriend who dumped you years ago.

    Plus, with Nike coming in, dollars-to-donuts we get stuff from them trickling out for us.

    If somebody is looking for a plate coat and goes to the Honig's web site they won't have any idea Honig's sells them if it's not on there.  

    I have to agree with Stu here. An online search would probably reveal both Honigs and Out West. But since Honigs doesnt even listvitvon their site. It could probably be mistaken as "old news."

    The Honig's website is a joke.  I visited better sites in the 90's when the web was just starting up.  I can't believe how many times they don't show all of a product, then say another color is available... but you can't order it unless you want to call them!  smh

    And I like some of their products, but that $10.95 shipping on anything under $100 kills. :smachhead:

    It's why it was so awesome to have one locally when I lived in SoCal and then again when they had a location in Salem, Oregon. It would be worth to drive to not have to pay shipping and try the stuff on.

  7. Would probably need more information on this. Such as what is happening that F1 would want to throw elsewhere.

    If you are asking about making a play on a runner. Such as the pickoff play (seen mostly in youth ball) with R2 where the Centerfielder comes in to take a pickoff at 2nd. Yes that would be legal.

    I'm kinda set on masks unfortunately, unless something really neat turns up.  My preference is to sell this one but I would trade for something interesting.

    I kind of figured. Just took a shot in the dark on two things I am not sure how the best way to get rid of would be.

    Anybody able to find this video? It's a little late now, but maybe it's floating around somewhere.

    Funny, I saw anout 10 mins of the game and saw this play, great call and positioning, I too wondered about the lack of slide. 


    This is the ESPN watch link  - play at 2:44

    To be fair, he does offer the iX3 in Ice Grey, which isn't a widely carried color... Too bad he didn't slap some usable pads on it too.


    Hes had that mask (as well as the black one) for sale on his page for years. It's the original version of that rig. Hence the horrible pads.

    It is the Diamond chest protector with his name on it, just like this is the Diamond mask with his name on it. 

    :Facepalm:how could I forget about the fact that Davis markets the Diamond iX3 mask with his logo on it. Had it for years on his site. And I just completely spaced it!

    I have a force 3. I’m curious - what does Douglas by force 3 mean, exactly? Force 3 frame with different Douglas pads? Different frame? Simply a logo on the pad?

    Simply a logo change 

    From what I understand, and guys like @MadMax and the like could probably go more into the back story, Force3 paired with Douglas as a marketing tool to get their masks out to the public. There are also Force3 v1 helmets out there with the Douglas logo.

    Basically, Force3 wanted a way to put their masks to market. One way to do so is to partner with an established brand. In this case one (if not the only) fully American made equipment companies I. Douglas. In exchange for putting the Douglas name on the product. Douglas would market the masks.
