    Size on the shoes might help...
  2. Use 1st names

    This is how I look at it. If you were a co-worker with someone would you want them to call you by your first name? The catcher/umpire relationship is like that of co-workers. You don't necessarily have to get along the entire time but you're both after the same goal and that kid is putting his body in the way of a speeding projectile to help keep you safe.
  3. They’re back!

    What would you want for the frame
  4. Watching umpires while I watch my son

    I've done it one time... I was going to work the bases and as I'm sitting there, my partner calls me... flat tire is going to make him arrive less than 5 minutes before the game... I had to change anyway.
  5. Watching umpires while I watch my son

    And it is amazing that they can find a place for the football crews to change inside... but baseball and softball... oh the parking lot will do just fine for you.
  6. What's the Call?

    In your opinion did the batter have time to vacate the area?
  7. Add on the ones that are calling it foul before it touches anything or has been touched.... If it is far enough foul to call it foul with it still moving... EVERYONE ON THE CAMPUS knows it is foul.
  8. Association startup

    Many states allow schools to hire their own umpires, but you mostly see that for small schools and rural areas. If you are in a metro area, you're probably going to have to join an association in order to get any amount of games higher than the youth level.
  9. Contact by itself isn't illegal... it is where the contact took place. If it happened past the base or on either side of the base, then in FED that is interference.

    Tough but fair...
  11. It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...

    Will Riddel refurb this?
  12. Force 3 V3 Chest Protector

    This might make me spring for it. But $300 is a lot to spend to try something
  13. Weight Loss Group

    From a start of ~350lbs... I'm now down to 276.. I'm now hoping to be about 250, or less before I get to @MidAmUmp's camp in September. That would make it the 1 year mark.
