  1. What is Your Primary Mask?

    Wilson Titanium with black/tan leather pads. Classic.
  2. Totally Confused

    BU watches the ball, glances at the runner. On the basehit, PU has R1 into 3B.

    Is this mask still for sale? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 12" Douglas with T-Hooks

    Pics? I didn't know Douglas made a 12", thought 16" was the shortest.
  5. Best low-pro shin guards?

    You need to try my Platinums and see how they fit you.
  6. New NAIA Brainshark Video

    2 different things. 1 is choosing to lean outside to hit a pitch. The other is moving to avoid being hit by the ball. 1 is making a choice. The other is reacting. But, like I said, just umpire, make the call, I'm good either way.
  7. New NAIA Brainshark Video

    This is different. Joyce had a runner interference. We're talking about a batter in the batter's box. The pitch(er) causes the batter to have to avoid the pitch, thereby losing his balance, and if the HP umpire judges, interferes or doesn't interfere with the catcher's throw. Just umpire. I'm good either way.
  8. New NAIA Brainshark Video

    I watched the video and I see your point, but... I guess the PU judged that the batter could have avoided the pitch and maintained his position in the batter's box. Judgement.
  9. Batter interference on strike 3

    PENALTY: When there are two outs, the batter is out. When there are not two outs and the runner is advancing to home plate, if the runner is tagged out, the ball remains live and interfer-ence is ignored. Otherwise, the ball is dead and the runner is called out. When an attempt to put out a runner at any other base is unsuccessful, the -batter is out and all runners must return to bases occupied at the time of the pitch. If the pitch is a third strike and in the umpire’s judgment interference prevents a possible ­double play (additional outs), two may be ruled out (8-4-2g).
  10. Odd colored shirts

    Buy 2 shirts, 1 for you and 1 for your partner.
  11. Opening the Season

    No, on the snowman. But, I've had to delay a game when it snowed so hard that I felt it was a safety issue. We did continue after the snow stopped.

  13. Nike Titanium Mask Pads

    LOL, good luck on this one!
  14. New Balance Plate Shoes

    The only issue I'm having is that these new shoes are higher than the older ones. My shins now ride about 2 inches higher, not a huge problem, just something to get used to.
  15. My Place To EJ?

    Your jurisdiction is on the field, not in the stands. Follow Maven's advice, get game/site management to handle the stands.
