    Mizuno Shovel - SOLD!

    We're saying the same thing. He needs to get permission from SWMBO, not me. I don't get asked for my permission to do anything.

    Mizuno Shovel - SOLD!

    Good idea, yes. Permission? Pffft. I ain't your SWMBO.

    Mizuno Shovel - SOLD!

    What I want is the height of the bow, both at the front and back. ^ __________________ | _____/ \_____ | _/ \_ | / \ | / \ V / \

    Can you get an end-on look with the ruler? Like picture #4 with the ruler vertical, one each with the ruler behind and in front?

    Mizuno Shovel - SOLD!

    Relating this to the discussion on 3-D printing one, before you ship it off, would you be willing to take more photos with a ruler and from several angles? I'd like to put together a 3-D model (even if materials are currently lacking) so we could at least have it for the future.

    Ebay finds

    I have access to one. As @CJK notes, I would certainly want to test it out on something-not-my-throat before putting into production. Anybody have a baseball cannon?

    Transaction Experience Thread

    I also had a great transaction with @codizzle. And another one with @42outs. Bought things from both of them last week. Both were exactly as described and arrived when they said they would.

    Bases Loaded Walk and Umpire Calling Time

    I get what you're saying, but if you're paying attention, you can see that coming, too (going straight to the base, as opposed to walking toward the outside, watching the fielders, and getting ready to make a break when he gets close).

    Bases Loaded Walk and Umpire Calling Time

    If he's busting his rear to first, yes. If he's lollygagging, he can stay there.

    2018 Mid-American Umpire Clinic

    One of my partners on Sunday and I were talking about attendees who stood out above the others, and he brought up "the guy who lost all the weight" who impressed him (and me, too). Good meeting you face-to-face!

    Roll Call- Mid-American Umpire Clinic

    I will be there. I'm pretty pumped, because I've never attended any clinic over 2 hours long and I'm looking forward to putting faces with names of guys I see here.

    Gerry Davis Poly Spandex

    1) I didn't have to do that 2) Kentucky Ave. is, but it's not anywhere near $500 3) Me too 4) I always thought the capital of Kentucky was 'K'

    Interference, Obstruction, or Nothing?

    Cool. I had that Albany team at regionals 2 weeks ago. ...and I agree it was obstruction, in spite of the baserunning.

    Quite well, actually. The jock keeps it in place.

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    First of all, as someone who has lost a significant amount of weight, I will never discourage you from trying that. But as for the NB, the idea is for it to "float" (as stated above). That means you don't put compression pants/shorts over the top. The jock lets it move around. If you put compression pants/shorts over the top of the jock, it's no longer floating, it's stuck right there. It definitely feels different, and I can see how some people might not like it. For me, though, I've never had anything more comfortable.

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    Wait, you have the cup outside the jock? I do compression shorts, cup, jock, pants. I find the NB to be much more comfortable than my old Shock Doctor.

    Fair ball goes out of play

    F6 used to show that he was under 250' from home plate. Canseco was near the fence - well over 250' from the plate, so this doesn't apply. And yes, it would have to be a walloping hit to deflect off somebody that close to the plate and still go over the fence in fair territory.

    Fair ball goes out of play

    I think it's clearly NOT what you think. It says "deflected at a point less than 250 feet" That to me, means what @beerguy55 says. A line drive hits off F6's head and goes over the outfield fence - still a two-base award, not a HR.

    MLB Balk Rule

    No shame in admitting you're wrong. Insisting you're still right on the other hand... My goal is just to not make the same mistake twice!

    MLB Balk Rule

    Since I posted earlier in the thread, I got it in my email. Thank you for that. Apparently I was, indeed, wrong. I hate when that happens. @BlueMagic - listen to what they said instead of me.

    interference/obstruction/play on???

    As long as it's not intentional? I guess the catcher shouldn't have dropped it there. As @LMSANS said... play on.

    MLB Balk Rule

    So in your particular case, the result of the play is that the batter and the only baserunner *did* advance one base, so the balk is ignored. If that runner had been on 2nd base instead of first, we still let the play run through. If R2 (the runner who started on 2nd) advanced to 3rd*, then the balk is ignored. But if R2 is still standing on 2nd, the result of the play is that we enforce the balk - so R2 goes to 3rd, the batter goes back to the plate with a 3-0 count. *which often happens when a balk is called - the runner will advance and the defense will not attempt to get the out, not realizing that they can - not that it will affect the baserunner (he still gets 3rd), but that it will affect the batter.

    Hello from CO

    Howdy from "next door" in Kansas. I did the same thing (a few years in rec before moving to competitive ball) - it only gets better from there.
