    Sad News

    My prayers for his family and friends and my hope that the "Chief Umpire" welcomed him safe at home...

    AITA?

    Not at all.............I actually think I have extended my career by not doing games under the 14-15 yr old age group. At one time I was that guy wold would work any game played with a white ball and red stitches..... The level of play, the "over the top" coaches and parents, working games solo, being mistaken for the backstop did me in.........
  4. I think one of the things we don't teach well is when its time to take a break. Be it a few games off in the season or a full season or two in an career. It can be just the thing the doctor ordered. Enjoy!......Like was said above......baseball will always be here, and there is never a shortage of games for good Umpires...............like you........
  5. I never had the GD plate shoes but I wore the +POS Hightops forever!. ( they were very similar to GD"s)...........I was so happy when the Reebok and NB plate shoes came out

    Personality

    Over the years, I have been in a number of associations covering a good swath of competitive baseball.........of those memberships, I feel type A's vastly dominated.....(not always for the best.) I have seen many people come and go and to stick with it, one of the prerequisites seemed to be a good "sense of self". Definition of Sense of Self. In psychology, the sense of self is defined as the way a person thinks about and views his or her traits, beliefs, and purpose within the world.

    Ejection

    Many a player has been ejected assuming the Umpire did not speak / understand another language.............
  8. I had one of those back in the day...........you might want to search ebay for one to use as a parts rig.........they were great protection! (but the heat retention factor oh my..)
  9. my first instruction many years ago was to make sure you apply "LB's" to your palm......and not directly to the ball.........if not you get a mud spot and not the dull finish you want......I still have the remnants of am LB's container in my bag.........great stuff.........although I havent been asked by a league to rub up baseballs in a long time....
  10. Been there.....done that..........I signaled out..but called safe..... Fortunately for me, the runner was out by a large distance, so it was just an inadvertent verbal call..............fix it........be embarrassed........move on.....

    Bats

    Team bats?.........yup I remember my playing days...coach brought the US Army issued duffle bag with the 2 team wood bats to each game. (The big one and the little one.).....I cant say I've seen any "Team" bats in many years............. The bats I see are high buck bats owned by the player himself. I cant loan what I didn't supply......... Just my .02
