  1. Wrapping it up!

    I am sadly done as well took my shirts and pants to dry cleaners to help store until spring. I am unable to umpire summer ball because I work at a golf course and that job comes first.I think this site is fantastic. Oh I think we need to stop warning and just start booting the RATS
  2. Leg Guard Feedback

    I bought a pair of catcher leg guards and cut off the toe flaps they breath very well and give great protection. I would like to find umpire guards that are low profile and agree with all the men in blue as far as low profile. I would like to change the inside hardware so it wouldn't rust. Imho i prefer the clips they fit more snugly

  14. to toss or not to toss

    I had a u 10 game almost a week ago and had a coach you know the guy I know the rules I have umpired 18 years. In a nutshell it was a league rule play at the plate slide or a he avoid and his runner crashes into the catcher and hits the ground and the ball comes loose. The kid is one the ground in serious pain and the rat comes at me in a vicious manner and argues for about a minute about the out or safe call. I hear a parent tell the coach why don't you check the kid he at this point quit barking at me and bent down to help the kid off the field and a trip to the ER. I overheard his parents ripping the rat for caring about a Ffing run and not about their kid. My reason for not running this guy I felt it would be a mess of trouble bitching and whining all the way to the parking lot. Oh by the way he shut his rat hole the rest of the game. He told my boss the next day he would have tossed himself. I learned my lesson I will take your guys advice and pop my EJ cherry next time this happens
