  1. It's cute hearing Don Denkinger talk about what Clemens says. Did he hear what Clemens say, because everybody knows there is no way he is able to see what Clemens said. Go Cardinals.

    Everything You Need For Sale

    An inexpensive one.
  5. Powder that forehead. When I put you on the tv it's blinding me. Oh, thanks for the review.
  6. I don't believe our hs assigner receives anything from the schools. Our pay is $80 a game and the assigner gets $3 per game from umpire before receiving the next part of their schedule.

    At 22 you are the young umpire I am talking about. Our new guys, when we can find them, are generally 50 years of age or older.

    I just wish we could get more young umpires.

    Ump Attire Black Friday

    My body says old most of the time, but my mind didn't get left in the 1970's with some romantic memories that never happened. And I happen to think it sucks when people my age bash younger people. Lest they forget about older people bashing us.

    Not hijacking if it's that funny.

    * is correct. Same guys who will tell people how they never locked their cars or the house doors at night. Man, my brother locked his car doors and some guy still was able to break into the car and steal about $300 worth of 8 track tapes. And we didn't walk 20 miles to school everyday in 100 degrees with ten feet of snow on the ground. Oh, uphill both ways.

    Bunt to Chop Swing

    Was 12 years old and playing pickup game with a bunch of older players and was cheating in for a bunt. Guy had squared around and instead of bunting hit a line drive which hit me squarely under my left eye. After that I never wanted a line drive or hard hit ground ball hit towards me. Also could never crowd the plate again. In younger kid game I do believe it should be banned.
  15. Watch all of the videos on the page. Wild crazy stuff.
  16. Dang. Thought it might be me. Oh well, always next year.

    Thousand Oaks Umpire

    Guys, Not sure if this guy is a member or not, but I am seeing a father on CNN whose son was shot and killed last night in Thousand Oaks. CNN is showing a picture of the son wearing an umpire uniform and holding a mask. The son's name is Cody Coffman. I could swear I have seen the picture as somebody's profile picture on here.

    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.

    Why wouldn't Team Wendy work on the bottom mask pad?

    All Star FM4000MAG

    Received it yesterday and installed it, properly I hope. Adjusted the top strap of harness and it fits fine. Only issue is I have to use 2 of the 50 games on jv and freshmen fall ball this coming Tuesday. I'll admit it. Last time I bought it. I had even lost weight.
  22. CIF has a patch that goes on your breast pocket on the shirt.
  23. I always glue a thin piece of cardboard to the back of my patches, like from a cereal box, and then glue on the magnets.

    All Star FM4000MAG

    I stopped buying any type of plastic lawn furniture. After a few years they fall apart when you sit in them. I believe heat is also the culprit for the handles on my F3 equipment bag. A couple ripped in the middle of the handles, not at the seams.
