  1. It would be a pretty crazy play, but had that been immediately caught by the catcher, you've got an out?

    LLWS 2018

    Found on the front page of MSN: http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/more-sports/watch-umpire-gets-in-way-during-walk-off-at-little-league-world-series/ar-BBMcuUX?ocid=ientp
  4. Used but in good shape. $30 shipped.
  5. It's odd that faking receiving a throw isn't illegal, if that's the rationale, because as soon as a base runner thinks a fielder is in position to get the throw on a steal, he's going to slide. The damage has already been done. He's not waiting for a tag attempt to start his slide.

    Kids that are the size of 14 year olds are throwing gas on too tiny of a field. There’s zero need to call a wide zone. They don’t need the help. It’s hard enough to hit most of these guys.

    Caveat Emptor-A Force3 Story

    It took me all of 30 seconds to adjust, and that's the first time I had to do it in 2 years. If it wouldn't adjust back easily enough/always moved, that's another issue. You can buy a 100K car, it's still going to need maintenance and have a part shift or need adjusting.

    Meh. Gear sometimes needs adjustments or fixing.

    Caveat Emptor-A Force3 Story

    I recently noticed that this happened to mine. Using the photo above, that little silver piece was all the way to one side, meaning the one mask was all the way to one side. Not sure if you’re having the same issue. Couldn’t move it using my hands. I took a small folded up towel, put it over the side of mask, and lightly hammered that part of the mask so the mask would be centered again and that piece would be in he middle. Not sure if it will happen again, but it was a relatively easy fix for me.
  10. Maddon said postgame that he understands the rule (doubtful, and if so why are you out there). He’s every travel coach out there when it comes to rules. He doesn’t know them, and every call against his team is an awful judgment call. It’s embarrassing.
  11. Black Wilson Dyna-Lite A3009X. No cracks on the vinyl of the mask. Two tone pads - lightly used. Pads and harness both have the West Vest logo and are in good shape. PM me with offers.

    Botched Appeal Attempt on R3 Leaving Early

    And if I call time to clean the plate, I'm depriving the runner on 3B from possibly advancing home if the shortstop overthrows the pitcher from 10 feet away. On and on it goes. Again, OP is OBR, I said FED.

    Botched Appeal Attempt on R3 Leaving Early

    Sure, but relaxed action to me (when wanting to call time) means the ball is in the infield and the base runners are standing on the base, so not depriving them anything but running into an out.

    Botched Appeal Attempt on R3 Leaving Early

    Agreed, though in FED, with relaxed action and a coach hollering at me about leaving early or what they want to appeal or even walking towards me, etc, I will sometimes just call time and ask them what their question is and get the dead ball appeal out of the way.

    CWS TOR Bucknor situation

    This just happened in tonight’s game. Bases loaded. Pitch bounces. Goes up, hits Bucknor. Ball comes to rest in his hands/arms on accident (though showed some pretty poor awareness). Finally “realizes” it and drops the ball. Calls time. Awards all runners a base. Sox would have had an easy out on the play had time not been called/ball just dropped. What’s the call in FED vs OBR? Did they consider it a lodged pitch? Because it wasn’t trapped in equipment. My understanding is you could keep that play alive if dropped more or less right away.

    Botched Appeal Attempt on R3 Leaving Early

    @MadMax, I just feel like the vast majority of players/coaches/fans don't understand how to appeal, even if OBR. They think the only way to appeal is to always get on the rubber, then step off, etc. You'll have coaches yelling "we're going to appeal 3rd, Timmy get on the rubber," etc. Meanwhile it was just a SAC fly, no one else on, the ball is clearly still live.

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    I’m not familiar with a nutty buddy compared to a “normal” cup. Thanks for explaining.

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    OK, I finally have to ask this. Am I missing something, or doesn’t the cup go in the jock, if using one? Whenever I see people list an order, I’m imagining a floating cup with a jock over the top of it - not in it. Which is weird. Technically, if in the jock, it goes compression, jock, cup, jock, pants (or whatever).
  20. Bucknor is bad, I really don’t get how he is kept around.

    Time between games

    I get a fee per game. Don’t know or care about how the sausage was made. Should be 2X for two games. Most tournaments are 2X, 3X etc. There is a documented shortage of officials in all sports around the country. Probably time to not get cute with “travel fees”.

    Haha. Not knocking it, just pointing out the hypocritical nature of their comment. I totally get using that for little guys.

    Time between games

    I don’t know how anyone determines a travel fee or what it equals, but if one game is X, two games should be 2X. You can slice it any way you want, but the “you didn’t travel twice” is nonsense. Is there a wait around fee for the time between games?
