  2. I love my force 3 shin guards. They have always taken care of me. They are light, low profile, and don’t irritate my legs. The only problem I’ve had with them is that the top of the knee snags my pants so I have to untuck the pants after I stand up, run or basically do anything. Which gets really annoying and I don’t want to look dumb when I forget one time. This happens because the shin guard is very stiff and does not conform to my leg at the top. So I did a modification to help stop this. I used the shoulder caps from a Force 3 CP and using some Velcro, attached them to the top of the shin guard. Then I added some loops from an old pair of shin guards and I got this. A double knee Force 3 shin guard that does not snag the pants.

  3. So, using the OP's piece of information about the ridges, sunset can be well after it's too dark. For example, there is a university I work, located on and below river bluffs. We had to call a game for darkness two years ago at 5:45. I just checked to evaluate your idea, and the official sunset time was 7:37. We would have had no way of knowing the large difference in daylight unless someone collected data day after day as to when the field was in darkness. Given my past career and training in surviving isolation, I can suggest that holding your hands perpendicular to the ground and measuring the distance between the top of the horizon and the sun, each finger is about 15 minutes of daylight. I like the idea, but I see challenges in practice.

  4. https://youtube.com/user/swanamaker It's mainly a bunch of short clips for training. But it was a pleasant surprise when I noticed the channel name on one of Kevin Fitzgerald's Facebook posts of a case play video. I also recommend checking out the Strong Beach Umpires (Long Beach, CA) youtube page. Also newly discovered today by joining their Zoom clinic this morning... New Mexico Officials Association (NMOA) has a bunch of great videos for all sports. But in particular about 15 hour long videos with the likes of Billy Haze, Brian DeBauware, Mike Everitt, Bill Miller, and more!

  5. If the field looks like this, it is time to stop.
