    Shin guards question

    Again, it's an absolute FACT! I was the one that got hurt in the game. So, it ain't no opinion. I never said everyone would get hurt. And, 14U throwing 90? Yeah, right.

    It ain't possible, it's a fact.

    OBS at Home Plate then Malicious Contact

    Old catchers, I was one, back in the 70's were taught to hang onto their masks if there was a possibility of a play at the plate so they could put the mask back on. When I was in HS, it was still legal to run over the catcher. But, we could also chew tobacco, too.

    Force play slide INT video

    Wow, that's pretty wordy. How about, "Bob, I've got the runner legal, "But he made contact with my fielder," Bob, I've got the runner legal." " Let's play ball."

    You will get hurt in these. I tried them, used them 1 game and retired them.

    OBS at Home Plate then Malicious Contact

    Horrible call by the 1B umpire at the plate. Watch the catcher's helmet. The force was so violent it knocked his helmet from his head.

    NFHS Malicious Contact?????

    Jax, It's not HS baseball. This play checks all the boxes for MC under Fed. I'm kind of surprised you don't see it.

    NFHS Malicious Contact?????

    Someone a long time ago said, "I can't describe pornography, but I know it when I see it." It's the same thing with MC. As soon as I saw the video, i said, "that's MC." I don't know why you don't see it, but the runner lowered his shoulder, led with his forearm and in my opinion attempted to dislodge the ball. I know I'm mixing codes a little here, but I've got MC all day.

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    Just a suggestion, try and become a Wilson guy, too. Although somewhat outdated, their CP's, masks and shinguards are bullet proof.

    Buy both plate and base pants. I cannot stress this enough.

    Smitty's Poly-Spandex Pants Fading

    If you've worked 150 games in 7 weeks, 20 per week, you have other issues! But seriously, I'd call wherever you bought the pants from and asked for direction. If they have faded just from you wearing them on the field, I'd think you have a case. If you left them in your vehicle and they faded, then probably not. Of course if you wash them after each day, then that might be the source of your fading issues.

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    I just got mine on Monday, too. The harness looks really good. I won't get to use it until next year, but it looks really good.

    Time between games

    In high school in Tennessee, if second game of a DH is started after more than 30 minutes, we are paid 2 full game fees. If started within 30 minutes, they get to pay a reduced, DH fee.

    13" AA-37 All American CP and 15-16" shins

    This is an EXCELLENT cp. I have the same one and use it for levels up to NAIA and NCAA D3. Very comfortable and affords very good protection.
