  1. Glove Knocked Off - Detached Equipment?

    Here's your unicorn !!
  2. MHSAA Finals

    Don't Suck!
  3. Batter turning at first base

    now, lets take into consideration the level of "judgment". Would I trust most of the guys on this site to make the correct call, probably. Would I trust the umpire in a previous 7U post to understand what intent means. Absotively posolutley no.
  4. Base coach interference?

    Just dropped you a PM
  5. Head first slide

    LL is the only rule set I am aware of that discourages the head first slide, with penalty being "out". However, the umpire may not be trained/as trained as they should be in interpreting the rule. A stumble/fall/crawl is not to be interpreted as a headfirst slide. Now, while many of the umpires on this site may give you a different interpretation of what a headfirst slide is, it is just that. In the Umpires "Judgment".
  6. Base coach interference?

    I'm definitely getting an out with you coach.
  7. Called a Bad Game, How to Recover

    to use a basketball analogy..............
  8. Play at the plate

    damn @maven, I saw "depending"...........and thought you were going to say day game or night game.
  9. Umpire interference?

    It seems as though Maven's subtle remark was missed. Read the OP slowly. F6 (SHORTSTOP) collided with BU F4 (2nd BASEMAN) dropped the ball. Trying to get anything out of this is akin to trying to smell the color 9.
  10. Getting older vs. getting old

    Rely on the job "reasoning". I for one (assuming there are probably others out there) have had a knee replacement. It slowed me down for about 3 months during the off season when I was rehabbing.
  11. Getting older vs. getting old

    I always try to remember to pee before the game starts.
  12. How to explain "how to counter blocking base"

    <mic drop>
  13. How to explain "how to counter blocking base"

    and after you have been ejected for coaching your kids to do that...........................what do you tell the coaches and parents?
  14. While there have been several suggestions, solutions and reality issues mentioned, it's just that. Reality. It's part of the game. That sarcastic side in me wants to tell you to go play soccer. However, I think you have many solutions to choose from now.
  15. Mask

    Like many things in life, you get what you pay for. I would recommend paying what you feel that your safety is worth.
