  1. Numbers

    I was going to say, we could defer this question to guys that work the conferences that UA provides uniforms. Guys like Scott and @Fittske24. Or our MiLB brethren like @Mbaldwin43 And the others who get their uniforms supplied by Ump-Attire.
  2. Numbers

    Sounds this might be a @Scott K or @JimKirk kind if question.
  3. Mask frames

    I would be curious about photos if you want to shoot some my way.
  4. Diamond Masks

    Interesting... how much are you looking for it.
  5. I pulled a Suzuki

    Good call about contacting him... we all know he has stock in them. lol
  6. So do they have an assistant to the ASSistant Hitting Coach?
  7. Diamond Masks

    See... I went the other direction. I went back to my Diamond after giving a Nike a try. Now I kind of wish I had it back to give it another go. Also want to give a steel a try and see what I think there.
  8. All Star FM 4000 MAG

    Man... those bars look much thicker than I thought they were. Also, even though we all know the reason why, it's interesting how much smaller the too pad is. I wonder if there is an option for a thicker pad there? Funny... I just told The Boss the same thing. The smart woman that she is. First question out of her mouth was "how much is it?"
  9. Momentary adjustments

    But he would have to deliver the ball before he replanted his feet to push off. We can't have Carter Capps situation.
  10. Benidtenei out of baseline

    I'm going to venture to guess that was more like 4 feet out of the baseline. He runs up the chalk line. And to avoid Olson' tag, he ends up with one foot on the grass cut out.
  11. All Star FM 4000 MAG

    Spencer, can get photos?
  12. Balk to 2B?

    From what I have heard, Tim is back working with the group in Portland again. He had fallen on hard times after hanging up the gear. But sounds like he is back on his feet and in charge of training.
  13. MadMax/Schutt XV retrofit

    Can't wait! My new Schutt XV is almost in @MadMax's hands. I look forward to him retrofitting it and shooting the "how to" video and getting it back in time to show it off at our HS on field clinic and the Wendelstedt local clinic at the end of February.
  14. Jeff Nelson

    What's funny is that not 2 minutes before you posted this thread, a friend of mine from Spokane asked me the same question. Lol
  15. All Star FM 4000 MAG

    @MadMax, this has your name all over it.
  16. The Ump hard shell chest protector

    Want a backup? Lol I happened to see one of these at a local used sporting goods store.
  17. Game Management - Ejections

    Totally agree. One from a few years ago still haunts me to this day. And one from last year where I lost control still gets me. And the one from last year I DID eventually get the ejection.

    I have only gotten to hold the WOW shirts. Haven't gotten around to actually buying one. The feel cheap to me. I don't want them to do a jacket cause it probably won't be a good one. And I rarely ever wear the half zip shell. Which is probably what they will go with.
  19. Diamond Masks

    As far as I am aware. That is the only difference. I believe the frames are the exact same. I also want to say, somewhere on here, @MadMax went in depth about the difference. But I am not sure where.
  20. Game Management - Ejections

    I won't have any this year due to having to take the spring off (hoping I can get a game or four in during the summer depending on how my knee feels). But I have around 25 years on the field. Some years I have none. Some I have a bunch. By my count, I have averaged an ejection a year for my career. It isn't anything I am overly proud of. But is something I do like to chuckle at on my own time.
  21. Jeff Nelson

    If I remember correctly, the throat extention is a custom add on.
  22. F3 helmet failure

    Wait... you mean the Big Yellow W is selling a bill of goods regarding protective equipment? About time those catchers get treated the same way we have for the last 20 years. I'm looking forward to seeing what Force3 comes out with. Would love to see the extended cage that Hedges wears being standard. Especially if they take the route you suggested and do an umpire version as well as a catcher version.
  23. F3 helmet failure

    This is not correct. As stated at. The start of this thread, and in earlier ones this year. Austin Hedges still wears his Force3 HSM. Of course, that is on the same lines as A.J. Ellis being the only Wilson catcher, but wears a traditional mask. The statement still holds true.
  24. The Ump hard shell chest protector

    I think Max just called Ray "old" lol
