    Schutt XV-HDX Question Re: Attachments

    @Razzer, Can you remove the Gold pads and replace them with the Adams/Schutt pads? I'd love to see or hear the instructions on how to do this, I have both CP's.

    @beerguy55, I will give you one thing, you talk WAY too much. Glad I don't have to work with you. I can imagine going to you on a check swing, then the response taking 2-3 minutes as you explain your response. But, I digress. Yes, my position is in the absolute, I have ZERO authority in the stands.

    Schutt XV-HDX Question Re: Attachments

    This is all really interesting information. I bought an Adams. The question is, do you really want to have to do all of this stuff to your CP? I don't. I have a new Adams, worn once, for sale. Oh, and the neck is way too narrow, too!

    Ejecting Fans

    It's kinda hard to eject someone that's not in the game, isn't it? MLB umpires have somewhat more authority than we do in the levels we work. Take care of you business inside the fences and on your way from your site. What do you do if you get heckled as your leaving, do you have a post game ejection of the fan heckling you? You guys do what you want, eject fans, eject the concession stand people, etc. if you want to. Sounds like you guys want to be cops, not umpires. This horse is dead.

    Nope. All of the things you listed are for something that occurs on the field.

    I don't do youth leagues, so, if an umpire's jurisdiction does extend to the stands, I stand corrected.

    Nope, you have no jurisdiction. None.

    Need Pants!

    They stretch? When do they stretch? I've never had a need for my umpire pants to stretch. Just curious.

    I've said this before and I'll say it here again, "YOU HAVE NO AUTHORITY IN THE STANDS! NONE, ZERO." If you think you do, you're just making up rules. You don't. And, for @Thatsnotyou, if you play under Fed rules, you are supposed to have a game administrator at the site.
