  1. I took a foul ball off the throat guard in a Palo game. The throat guard flew off and I sustained a minor cut. I can only imagine how bad it would have been if I wasn't wearing that throat guard.
  2. He was in the A position watching the whole thing take place. I honestly don't know why he didn't come over to help. He's been umpiring for many years and I would think he should know better than to stay away when one of his partners is in a situation like that.

In two days I will get the chance to use it and we'll see how it works for me. BTW, I would like to put in a plug for Ump-Attire. They not only have good deals on top-of-the-line equipment, but they also have great customer service. They ship qui
  6. I was at a Mets game against the Mariners a week ago and I noticed that when there was a runner on 3rd, the 3rd base umpire actually had BOTH feet in fair territory. I was specifically looking at his positioning throughout the game, and he used that position in several situations. Other times he straddled the foul line.
