  1. Masks that have an insert in the upper seam that allows the user to make a more complete seal are far better at preventing glass fogging. KN95 and N95 masks have this feature as do some commercially available fabric masks. The wire insert is exceptionally malleable and will adapt to most faces. Mrs Kevin_K has made a boat load of these masks and they work exceptionally well. She also designed them so they have thin elastic that goes around our heads and necks rather than tugging on the backs of our ears. We both work in schools and are required to wear them at all times when in the school

  2. Agree here; I guess I tend to think like you. I really don't like the idea of bad-mouthing him to all of your umpire buddies either. Expensive lesson learned, move on and don't put yourself in a position to be taken advantage of again, but no need to trash the guy. Sure, it shouldn't have happened but there could be lots of reasons that he didn't get you what he said. Life tends to throw things in our path sometimes and we forget what we were going to do. Sometimes we even think we did do what we were going/planning to do, only to get interrupted by our job/kids/spouse and then move on

  4. No negative meant. I was just trying to understand why an umpire would be conducting surveys. Now I understand that the organization wants surveys and you as the honcho, need to get them conducted. I get that.

  5. We start with this lineup: Smith Jones (P/DH) 3rd inning, we have this: Smith Jones (DH) — Doe pitching 5th inning, we have this Doe Jones (F/DH) When Smith leaves the game, he's a starter and will have re-entry. Doe has to drop into his spot in the order (because Smith is not in it). If Smith re-enters, he'd be in the 1 spot still, and Doe would have to leave the game. Jones left on defense and returned. The rule limits the number of times a team may do this. Because no DH provision was violated by the changes, the DH role is still alive.

  8. In this case, it sure feels like they're dodging you. Each person would handle it a bit differently as the responses have indicated, but you'll need to do what is best for your situation and your personality. Best of luck!

  9. Just to play devil's advocate. You said the man had health issues, and obviously some more pressing issues than assigning baseball. Did you ever ask him for the money? Could have been an oversight. I would have made an effort to ask him after the season. A call to ask him how he was doing health - wise, and a quick mention.... "Hey, didn't you say you were gonna pay me $100 for assigning for you this season?"...After that, yeah, block and move on.

  10. 2020 - ZERO 2019 - ONE 2018 - TWO, in conjunction with 3 other state organizations I hope this one bylaw excerpt doesn't have the appearance of being negative, because its not. No set of rules or standards are perfect. This specific one is in the interest of, continuous improvement, not to criticize anyone. I shudder to think what baseball rules we would be playing by today if it hadnt been for forward thinking people with open minds. Please read the entire bylaws 'PURPOSE' section pasted below. I hope it will provide you with a better understanding. ARTICLE II

  12. Agreed. $100 has a different impact on each person and for that reason, I'd have no problem saying go for it, but it seems like no matter what, you aren't going to get what you were promised. However, that person has earned whatever they get from you sharing the truth whenever and wherever you choose.

  13. You can "not like" the rules and still work the games under those rules. You can work to get the rule changed, if you want. I don't like the "immediate dead ball on a balk" rule -- it didn't stop me from working FED games.

  14. Twirly finger. *I don't know if the "according to Hoyle" procedure is to signal a dead ball because it hit the pole, and/or signal that is was a fair ball, before signaling a home run, but I'm thinking giving the universal sign for a home run tells everyone everything they need to know....it's dead, it's fair AND it's a homerun...all which are true on every "over the fence" homerun, whether the ball hits the pole or not.

  15. +1, all points. For whatever reason, a lot of daddy coaches seem to have bottomless pits of empty souls that require constant validation from children's games that they're worthwhile human beings. No lopsided victory is ever enough to satisfy these awful specimens. That's not illegal in baseball, just bush and unsporting.

  16. If you go on the Force3 Facebook page and go through their videos, I think they have a bunch of "kill shot" hits while wearing the Force3 mask. One I remember in particular, was a few shots in the same game, that Mark Wegner took.
