  2. Nike ti, Wilson pads

    I don't understand what ya'll are talking about. I also don't understand the attraction of painting the Nike black.
  3. Chirping Assistant

    Look at the head coach and say,”You want to take care of this or do you want me to?” Depending on his answer, restrict/eject the assistant or do nothing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The lengths parents go to

    Me too. Conversation went like this,”Time, you can run the scoreboard or criticize me. You can’t do both and if you choose the latter, you need to get out of the press box. Your choice, decide.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 2nd Mound visit/Non-Substitution

    Thank God for these jack-leg coaches. If not for them, we wouldn't have a job!
  6. I'm not saying to ignore rules, but, I've got a whole lot more things to worry about than where a defensive player's feet are. And, if I do see it, can't we just use a little preventive umpiring? How many of us have asked a catcher or an infielder to call time and tell the pitcher to come set? That's what I mean by preventive umpiring. Just saying....

    The pitcher I had went #7 in the MLB draft!

  9. Modified Force3 Tights

    interesting idea. I've never really had a problem or issue with getting hit on the thighs. But good new design.
  10. U1 in 3 Man

    Also, don't assume that 3-man is easier than 2-man. It isn't.

    Thanks Pal!
  12. I just finished my 2018 season with what I feel was a great way to end it. I was fortunate enough to be selected to work the Tennessee State baseball tournament this year. I also was fortunate to be selected for the Class A championship plate. One team had a Vanderbilt signee, probably top 10 MLB draft selection on the mound, throwing 91-95. The other team also had their #1 going, so I was looking forward to a good game. I was not disappointed. The game featured 23 strikeouts from both teams, went 12 innings and ended 1-0. MTSU stadium was packed, wonderful environment, crowd was loud and rowdy. I had two batters interference calls, one on each side, 2 runners on same base, both left base and were tagged out. It was just a great way to end my year. Folks that don’t umpire don’t understand why we do what we do, but I know you guys will be able to relate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
