    MLB pitcher "cheat sheet"

    Joe West just told Phillies pitcher in inning 8 Sep 1 that he couldn't pull a laminated sheet out and check it on the mound. At least this is the speculation. Watching the video, it is just after he did so. Is there a rule against this? Is it just the pitcher? I've never seen this be an issue before.

    Watch out for the bat

    Had plate in a fall ball babe ruth senior game last night. R1, BR gets a hold of one to left center and I start rotating to 3B. CF gets toasted, so I say "goin back home" and start walking backwards, keeping an eye on the play. I hear the catcher saying "heads up ... heads up ... heads up" and I'm thinking "yeah, I know where the ball's at" when I step on the bat, and it's like being on a roller in the dirt and I fall on my arse. I spin on a knee, put the mask hand down and stand up ... and fall again because I didn't get my feet under me squarely. After the inning, I ask the crowd if anyone has video. I've got friends that would pay good money for it! My partner was mad because he missed it. I was embarrassed and just laughed about it, cause what else can you do?

    Watch out for the bat

    I am not lying about any part of this. I wish there was video. Pretty high up Midwest Babe Ruth guy runs this complex, saw it happen and called me safe twice. I know I'm not doing this justice in describing how hilarious I had to have looked.

    Watch out for the bat

    My one friend said she'd quit her job to have more time to watch if there was one. Nobody got it. If this were 12-year-olds they'd all have moms video taping it!

    warnings are only as good as the person listening to them

    Is the player out

    Woody Allen is a creepy weirdo and has nothing to do with Mel Brooks, who is a comic genius.

    The trash can and base were Indy league. Hopefully the college kids behave better.

    It is all Angel's Fault

    Yeah, it was just a big package of times when Angel and Chicago teams butted heads. I did always laugh at that one.

    It is all Angel's Fault

    It's like a slump to start the season - people pay more attention to the start and end. Media here's been running a "best of Angel Hernandez" clip that includes him tossing Bears' legend Steve McMichael out after the 7th inning stretch.

    Smitty's Poly-Spandex Pants Fading

    Target and Amazon both show they carry them. I have 4 sets of pants, the oldest pair being 2 full seasons in (about 150 games a year) and don't see a difference.

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    Last year I took one from below that hurt still. I never felt like I had the Nutty Buddy in place right. Combine that with the selling of the company, and I wasn't as sure for the future. I upgraded to the Diamond and it's so much better. It fits better, I don't need a pair of compression shorts on top of it and below, so I cut a layer. I've taken 6 varsity level pitches/fouls to the cup directly and have not felt a thing. It's more comfortable and as protective. It's just a superior cup to the Nutty Buddy.

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    Where's the cup recommendations? Diamond MMA has protected me so well this year. I haven't felt any of the 6 or so good shots I've taken.

    NFHS Malicious Contact?????

    I read that as "Time! That's MC!" at the time of MC, not in between the two acts.

    Time between games

    Here, it's a reduced amount for DH in HS. Some schools though pay the full, or pay more at least.

    Stepped off but kept his hands together -

    Some fields have crappy mounds and it can be tough to see exactly where the rubber is as well.

    Hand separation in delivery

    Jake Arrieta does this almost every pitch. Tons of guys do it. This is not a balk. If the ump says it again, ask if he has ever seen Arrieta balked for it.

    Umpire jacket

    The Honigs shirts I got this week seem to be better. How's the Smitty's convertible sizing? I really like the Smitty's MLB light blue MLB replica. It's so comfortable.

    Another "OOO"??

    Yeah, even if they did call him out, if they ruled INT, it's TOI and runs had previously scored. Umpires might wanna check their hands after grabbing that end of the stick.

    Another "OOO"??

    Live ball still? Issue warning imo to the team.

    Umpire jacket

    Honigs' convertible jackets are like 3 sizes smaller than they say they are (comparably)
