    First games of the year!

    Lucky! Not sure if the temperature will get above 0* today in SW Minnesota. I have 5-foot snow drifts outside of my Apartment! Had an indoor scrimmage last week and one of the first live pitches I had was 88 up and in.

    West Vest customization

    Agreed, Im 6'6 and weight 170 on a good day. I do not come close to fitting in the gold. I did the modification to mine similar to @NicNag and I still wasn't a fan. I'll keep my 17 in Champro 2xx.

    2019 NCAA Test Question

    To specifically answer your question about throwing four pitches. At our preseason meeting we were told that you could still do the 4 pitches on an IBB but why would you?
  4. That is how I have understood the rule. It is principally a safety issue. In this situation, if you have contact, the question is "is this a legal slide?" The answer here is no it is not.

    Officials Depot vs Ump attire

    @JimKirk I know you work with Majestic. Is there any hope for us young guys to be able to get our hands on the Majestic jacket?

    Pitch from the windup without winding up

    From what I have read, it is my understanding that so long as they are in a legal pitching position, this is legal.

    Shin Guards with Mid-Cut Plates

    with 2 sets of Wilson shin guards in my garage, my pair and my dads who doesn't umpire much anymore, I am so tempted to make my own. However, as a college student, money is usually tight. I, unfortunately, do not have the funds to make the best shin guard never made.

    Ump Attire Black Friday

    @umpstu @ATXBlue Not trying to hijack this thread but there are young umpires out there. I'm 22 and spend almost an hour talking umpiring with a 16-year-old who is interested in getting certified and making more than the 16$ a rec game. I don't blame the kid. I have seen him work and he has a lot of potential. I am trying to get gear lined up for him as we speak.

    Smitty's Poly-Spandex Pants Fading

    I saw on a UA Facebook post that the dye isnt set properly by Smitty. If I remember correctly, for the first wash, was with a 1/2 cup of vinegar.
  13. The guys that I work with have adopted the MILB motto of "we still wear black." I do think the state associations need to get on board with the new colors. There is nothing wrong with the college black or blue.

    New Diamond CP

    18 seems long. Then again I get made fun of for having the longest WV Gold ever seen. I still love my Champion P2xx. That is at 17 inches. I don't think that it's really too long. It's nice to have some lower protection. Took one to my WV Pad in an NAIA game. Hurt a lot. Then again I need a 17 in because I am so awkwardly made.

    All Star FM4000MAG

    I have heard rumors that there are tan pads in the works. I can only hope it comes on the market sooner than later.
