    Masks & Base Shoes

    All .... I'm thinning the herd and wanted to throw these out there ...... 1. Old West Vest (Dyna Lite) w/ the throat guard removed, powder coated medium gray by Tony @ Mask-It. The TW pads shown should probably be replaced due to age. Throat guard and visor not included. (2 photos, one of the frame only, one dressed) 2. All-Star FM4000 powder coated matte black by Tony also. The Navy All-Star pads should probably be replaced due to age.(NOT SHOWN IN PHOTO but can provide one) Throat guard and visor not included. 3. Nike Trainer 1 cross trainers. Size 11. Got them used, wore them once, still in impeccable condition! Each mask $40, shoes $40 + shipping PM me please w/ any questions!

    Umpire Clinic Funny Moment

    So, ... at camp over the weekend doing field drills in a field house. The instructor putting the ball in play throws the ball down the first base line and it hits one of the basketball nets that has been raised up out of the way. He says, sorry, do over, but the instructor that's with the umpires in line to work the field says " ok guys, let's say that batted ball hits a bird " fair our foul? I step up right away and say "HANG ON .......the ball hits a bird, ....doesn't it have to be FOWL??!!" LMAO I know, boo hiss, boo hiss !!!

    Anyone see the LSU Army HBP

    no ...read the rule jimurray posted: I think the "or" phrase applied here: "a) If the ball is in the strike zone when it touches the batter, or if thebatter moves to intentionally get hit or freezes to allow a pitch that isnot within the batter's box to hit him, the ball is dead, it shall be calleda strike and the batter is not awarded first base."

    Anyone see the LSU Army HBP

    ok, but you see he called it a strike because his elbow was in the zone?

    Force 3 V3 Chest Protector - any reviews?

    There have been reports on here of people being bruised pretty good by shots. Some report nothing, some report feeling A LOT of a hit .... it depends on who you talk to. It's not for me, further ... one of my head scratchers is why no one at the MLB level uses this (or MiLB for that matter) AFAIK

    Why Follow The Pitch Into the Mitt?

    well ...... first off, thanks for this, secondly, this was intended / directed at Rich's comment. Lastly, it was posted based on other quips/responses he's posted in the past before your time.

    Why Follow The Pitch Into the Mitt?

    coming from a highly trained umpire
  12. While perfectly explained, and true ........ there are also a handful of coaches who don't understand "That's nothing!" and the safe signal
  13. Hey, let's be honest ....regardless of all of the above, .... prepare for a large argument after you make the call!

    Wilson Special Masks (Flag, Camo, Pink, Blue)

    to the best of my knowledge, ....... Dyna-Lites have always been hollow-steel, yes?

    Wilson Special Masks (Flag, Camo, Pink, Blue)

    Concur w/ Wolfe_man ... the best !! Hey Jim .... I'd like to assume that the wrapped finish would be less than the powdercoated finish, but there's probably more labor in the wrap?

    Wilson Special Masks (Flag, Camo, Pink, Blue)

    true .... but I'm doing 99% HS stuff, so I'm not getting a ton of 'flexibility' in what I wear

    Wilson Special Masks (Flag, Camo, Pink, Blue)
