  1. Buy it. Your wife can't get to your head if you're wearing that mask.
  2. The last one was my Uncle and he moved about ten years or so ago.
  3. That is actually the city she lived in. Last name Mautner. Attended Thayer hs.
  4. I have one and it's a fantastic mask.
  5. Mother is from Thayer. I grew up just west of St Louis.
  6. Missouri seems to take a little longer than the rest of the world to do anything. I grew up there and man. There have been 3 models of shirts that have come out since the navy blue shirt. The area in California where I now live had a rule against shoes with white on them. I was selected to work a final in my region and there was no way I was going to buy a new pair of shoes just for one game so I wore my NB with white on them. Two days later at the end of year meeting the wearing of those shoes with white on them was brought up by the president. After saying that he saw somebody wearing them he said that he thought they looked really sharp and that he thought we should change the bylaw to include shoes with white on them. Voted for unanimously in favor. We have been ok wearing the new model shirts as well as long as you matched your partner. Where in Missouri do you live?
  7. I'd like to add that there isn't anything wrong with wearing current model shirts, no matter if you're a pro or not. Nothing wrong with looking like one when you enter a field. And hopefully states have all gotten past the all black shoes thing. Should be a personal choice.

    Angle vs Distance

    No, I won't.

    Angle vs Distance

    I have never asked for help on a check swing because of angle. Catcher blocks me, tracking all the way on the aforementioned low breaking ball. Never because I have a bad angle.

    Schutt Scorpion leg guards

    The point is to take care of yourself right away, not afterwards.

    Schutt Scorpion leg guards

    This, I have gotten away with my 20 dollar, second hand, catchers shin guards doing high school ball for a few years, but you're right, it's probably not a good idea to risk that at the college level. I cut the tow flap off by the way Why would you want to risk yourself to high school pitching and catching using a pair of $20 shin guards? Unless they are a good name brand and you got them for a steal. But man, some of those kids can bring it and some of those catchers can't catch. Don't get yourself hurt.

    All Star FM4000MAG

    Looks to be wearing a black All Star FM4000MAG, but the mask seems to have the paint modified as if the black paint has been scraped off at certain points.

    You can never go wrong with the Force 3 shin guards. Coming from a guy who has worn numerous different models and manufacturers.

    Flat Black Allstar FM4000MAG

    I've had the silver one since early Aug and the stock pads are nice. If you feel the front of the chin pad there's a plate that disburses the force of the blow. I got hit twice last Friday and the stock pads do their job.

    Are you going to replace the pads with Team Wendy pads?

    I'm using the stock pads that it came with and love it so far.

    All Star FM4000MAG

    Well, used my FM4000MAG today and it impressed me. I took two shots and it did a great job. Of course one shot was to my right shin guard and the other was to my right thigh, but the mask was great during those two incidents. The big pads, especially the chin pad, absorbed all of my tears when I was hit in the thigh. Oh, it is unbelievably light and the view is fantastic. Of course Jim Kirk says stay tuned when the black model is mentioned.

    Gerry Davis's mask

    Do they mention if heat has an effect on the product? Some of us live and umpire games in a desert.
