    Team Wendy pads are always a great pick up. Nothing really jumping out at me on the Black Friday Sale on ump attire.

    NFHS Malicious Contact?????

    I am interested if anyone umpires in Iowa and knows how the Iowa umpires feel about this situation? Info on the teams and if the umpire crew has been disciplined for actions or inaction by association or State athletic association?

    Force 3 V3 Chest Protector

    Looks like force 3 put out a new chest protector. Looks exactly the same as the old ones, but says it is better. Has anyone tried it? Pic is on umpattire

    If only I was making this up

    I went to the state interpretations meeting at Becton on Monday. They said with runners on a ball hit down the right field line the plate umpire take the ball fair, foul, catch, no catch...no problem with that. Then depending on how far down the line the plate ump goes the base umpire might have to take the play at the plate. Who is the plate umpire? An Olympic track and field athlete?

    Has this gone anywhere? Did it work out?

    FED Rule vs. Ground Rule

    At what point is the school responsible for providing a safe field that meets the rule requirements set forth by the fed. I can understand a rare situation, but when it is expected to happen that becomes a problem. The school has a responsibility to provide a safe field for the student athletes. We are required to enforce fed rules. If I just decided to change a rule that would be unacceptable. I see it as the same thing.

    Pitch Counts

    I may have ran into someone on this committee in my state. He was hoping for an independent person to count pitches who would receive pay for services. For this year it would present a problem if you call games for non-affluent schools. School budgets are set months in advance and by the time baseball season comes around they are hoping not to run out of money for the teachers let alone another person to "count pitches" Have to wait a few more days for official word.

    2 man base umpire double play foot work

    Thanks for guidance. I had a video on my phone from a clinic this summer and then my phone died. It was impossible to get down at the clinic but something I wanted to learn how to do it correctly.
  13. Does anyone have a video of how to properly complete the foot work for a double play from B and C position? Something I want to work on for next year.

    NEW New Balance Plate Shoe

    This may seem like a stupid question but does this have a hard toe? It doesn't say that any where so far that I have seen. I like that the pad goes down lower. I have been hit a few times on the instep. If the shoe gets hit does it loose its shine?
