    I believe the technical term for that is “logo creep.”

HP Umpire Dan Bellino ejected White Sox pitcher Jimmy Cordero (throwing at Cubs batter Willson Contreras), manager Rick Renteria and pitching coach Don Cooper (ejection/warnings Unsportsmanlike-NEC) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Cubs-#WhiteSox game.

  5. I don’t think we need clarification if you read all of the thread and the threads referenced and the links referenced in the other threads.

    Runner interference

    That ump kicked the call. You kicked the rule. Would you like to refrase your post for better clarification.

  10. Ump kicked the call. Fielder gets one chance to field the ball if they boot it such as told he’s lost his protection. What noumpere said OBS on fielder fo sho

    Runner interference

    Unless the slowpitch softball rule on this is different from the baseball rule, this should have been OBS on the fielder
  13. I saw several posts about hydro dipping. Just wanted to weigh in on the durability factor. I had this Wilson aluminum dipped in a carbon fiber pattern by a local shop, and it’s extremely durable. So if you are concerned about that, there’s no need to be.

    Runner interference

    Slow pitch softball bases are loaded and batter hits ball to third baseman. Runners are moving on contact. Third baseman boots ball and it goes into the outfield. Runner moving from second to third is on a path to take him behind third baseman’. Third baseman turns and heads towards outfield to get ball. Third baseman knocks runner down and umpire calls interference on runner. Third baseman had opportunity to cleanly field hit ball and committed error. Ball was in outfield and there was no chance for him to make play at any base. How can there be runner interference when third baseman has no play to make?
  15. Two important things to point out regarding this rule change: There are two other participants in the home plate area that affect this rule, which we’ll need clarification on. With them expanding the scope of the rule to include all of the catcher’s body, if the ball subsequently touches us (the umpire) or the batter before being secured by the catcher (but before touching the ground... or a very close backstop) is it still a Foul Tip Strike? While it uses the similar definition of a caught live batted ball (such as a pop-up, or liner), it is a Foul Tip Strike... just as before in regards to Runners stealing. It remains Live, and they do not have to tag up (or are liable to be put out in appeal). ... I can just see some umpire getting that wrong.
  16. I can, and probably will, remove some. I may go to just a logo on the visor.
  17. Look for FED to adopt this around 2030... a year or two after they outlaw the feint to third.
  18. Living in San Diego, most dry cleaners know this, but my uniform shop, where my LEO gear comes from, does a great job on proper pants hems.

    @wolfe_man, I'm sic'ing the Brand Police on you, for gross over-use of the Nike Swoosh.
  21. I never let the seller do a pant hem for me. I've paid for Honig's to put numbers on my shirt and jacket sleeves, but that's it. I've gotten very fortunate that with all 3 places I've had pants hemmed, they've understood what the break should be. The first one was the athletic equipment repair & reconditioning shop I worked for in high school, who just so happens to do all the alterations and equipment maintenance for the Milwaukee Bucks, Brewers, Admirals and nearly all the universities and high schools in the area (Yup! This is where I cut my teeth on becoming a gear geek!). The founder and proprietor (my boss during high school) was Old World Italian, and appreciated the cut of a fine suit. He and his staff would do all the uniform tailorings for the pro players off hand measurements, and I can still remember him dawdling around the shop with a cloth tape measure draped over his shoulders. I fell out of touch with them, and I since found another seamstress in Waukesha who designs and fabricates her own clothing line. She does alterations, but insists on doing hand measurements based on you wearing the garment in her shop. This is key – you wear the plate shoes and the shin guards (if plate pants), or wear your base shoes and get into a hands-on-knees stance (if base shoes), so the tailor/seamstress can see how the pant rises and falls. This same lady also altered and tailored my plate coat exceptionally well, and constructed the ball pockets from scratch. In Phoenix, we have the benefit of having a fairly large population of Armed Forces servicemen (and women), as well as a good amount of LEOs. I just so happened to locate a seamstress who understands and performs a "parade ground break" when she stitches a hem. Several of my fellow Vultures are former military, and they insist and expect us to get "parade ground" -worthy alterations to our uniforms. See if you can locate a tailor or seamstress who does alterations for Armed Forces, LEOs, or Fire Service. What I also recommend, for proper draping, is to double, hide, or add additional fabric in the hem, along the bottom edge. This will aid in keeping the pant leg lying straight and falling down to a proper break in wind, or when you complete a mad dash.
