    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.
  2. Watch all of the videos on the page. Wild crazy stuff.
  3. 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.

    Unusual activity warning

    I use a chromebook and don't receive what has been posted. Your site, however does come up as Not secure.

    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?

    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.
  9. CIF has a patch that goes on your breast pocket on the shirt.
  10. 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.

    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.

    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?
  16. 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?

    Pine tar

    No kidding. lol Heard that so much during the league series. Starbucks is anti Christmas this year.
  20. 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.
  22. How does wanting to have up to date uniforms have anything to do with an umpires attitude?
  23. Buy it. Your wife can't get to your head if you're wearing that mask.
  24. The last one was my Uncle and he moved about ten years or so ago.
