    Situation From the Other Day

    Great job seeking out advice is the most important reply to the OP. Experience and your obvious willingness to learn will take care of the rest

    Time between games

    2 sixes??
  7. Looking for advice on how to better see the tag from C on a catcher throwing behind a runner on 2nd. I find that I can't really get around the throw to get a good look a the runner contacting the bag and the tag - I am often screened by the runner. Maybe I'm starting too deep? Anyone else have that issue and any advice?
  8. I love my Wilson Charcoal. Fits great with the harness that came with it and I feel very protected. I bought it used on craiglist 10 years ago and have used it for 80-90 plate games a year and i see no reason no replace it. I used a gold for part of a season and never felt comfortable in it.

    Rookie Tips

    Say only what you have to. Give an explanation in simple terms, either explaining what you saw or what rule you are applying. What you say can and will be used against you

    Base award

    isnt this similar to a right handed pitcher stepping back and separating his hands at the same time while spinning to throw to 1st? We (or I ) see this all the time - if he fakes the throw, are we calling the balk?
