    NFHS - Hit by Pitch or ???

    Last time I checked the hand is part of a body. HBP.

    Well, somebody has to bring it to the forefront. That people believe what they want to believe is extremely selfish when it comes to vac's.

    First piece of new equipment in a while!

    I have taken a hit wearing the All Star fm4000mag with and without the con cushion. Without it stings when getting hit. With it greatly reduces the blow to your head. Don't feel it near as much and it doesn't sting.

    At my age it's probably another time I get out of bed, go to the bathroom and then dribble. Ahh, to be young again.

    Did you get a black con cushion from Gerry Davis?

    No kidding. That they have any umpires in a coach pitch.

    I just can't believe a coach pitch 8U has two umpires? I've seen where they don't even have one.

    Check out Brandon James on facebook. He was a AA umpire last year and the league had him and his partners wearing retro uniforms for a game last year. A photo is posted on his page. I've known Brandon for a while now and I'm sure he will point you in the right direction.

    Unusual FPSR Play

    So what was his ruling?

    Multiple appeals

    I just think it's cool that the lead singer of Aerosmith would take the time to troll umpires. I remember him from before as well.

    And beerguy is correct. We do have the authority.

    3n2 plate shoes

    Some people got lucky and found a pair of Reebok Field Magistrates after 3 years of searching. But, that was last season and I can't find any more unless I were to chop off half my foot to be able to fit in them.

    Fed 10-2-H Talks about forfeiting a game and mentions infractions by spectators as one reason.

    I guess Tim Welke didn't eject that fan who was heckling Harper. Welke probably didn't realize he didn't have the authority to do that.

    The only concern I had happened the first time I took a shot towards the top of the mask. It actually stung and Mad Max explained the reason for it was it is designed for a catcher wearing a helmet so not as much protection in the top pad. Saw Gerry Davis wearing a Con-Cushion pad one night and ordered one and it solved the problem. Love this mask.

    Ejecting Fans

    Saw it happen the other day and it was warranted. A team which had won a state title had a tom of helicopter dads decide to camp out behind the backstop and criticize my partner and after an inning he called the coach down and walked to the backstop and told the parents and the coach that the parents could no longer be behind the backstop. I ran down at this point and told one parent he was embarrassing his son and not to take the fun out of the game for the kids. Have to say the dads were being assholes for no reason. Pitching was pretty rotten for one team and their catcher was very inexperienced and my partner was trying to grab every strike he could. We even had a minor league umpire attending the game and he said he had never seen anybody act like those dads.

    New All-Star Skull Cap SC500

    I have the stock black pads that come with the All Star magnesium so I chose the black cushion. Gerry Davis might be wearing the blue so you will notice it. That way you know it's out there and it gets people talking about it. Free advertising.

    New All-Star Skull Cap SC500

    I use this and it does help. Used to feel a sting when hit and the cushion helps immensely.
