    I live in a desert and plastic goes quick out here. Heck, the glue melted on the toes of my NB base shoes. I ordered that con-cushion today.

    Thanks. Just sent a message to Gerry Davis sports FB page asking him what his experience with it has been. Fit and hat coming off issues.

    Yes. The top pad definitely transfers the force to your forehead. Took a hit yesterday and it was a sharp pain. Any suggestions for a forehead pad to alleviate it?
  5. Those anger management issues.

    So, being as I'm not the Big and Tall build, more of the short and chunky, this chest protector wouldn't be for me?

    No problems

    Pine tar

    No kidding. lol Heard that so much during the league series. Starbucks is anti Christmas this year.
  9. Not so sure it's be good for fair/foul calls if they're next to the outfield wall. No way they see fair foul as good.

    New New Balance Shoes?

    Those sound cool.
  11. How does wanting to have up to date uniforms have anything to do with an umpires attitude?
  12. Buy it. Your wife can't get to your head if you're wearing that mask.
  13. The last one was my Uncle and he moved about ten years or so ago.
  14. That is actually the city she lived in. Last name Mautner. Attended Thayer hs.
  15. I have one and it's a fantastic mask.
  16. Mother is from Thayer. I grew up just west of St Louis.
  17. 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?
  18. 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.

    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.
