  1. My Pre-game conference quote, "If we have an appeal-able play, pulled foot, swipe tag or bobbled ball, get a time out after everything happens and go to the ump that made the call, if he needs help, we'll get it, if not, then we are playing ball. You'll lose your appeal if you do it wrong. And only you 2 managers are allowed to appeal."
  2. would he not just be on first safely? In the judgement of the ump, where would he be if the OBS had not happened? First Base IMO.
  3. Situation is this: Little League rules, 9-10U District Tourney, in between innings, the 3rd Baseman picks up the game ball at the edge of the mound and begins to toss the ball with the shortstop, and pitcher until the catcher is at the plate. Third baseman never toed the rubber and never warmed up with the catcher. Offensive team claims that since he picked up the ball, he is now the new pitcher. Tourney director never found specific mention in rule book, but umpire judgement was that since he didn't toe the rubber, he's not the new pitcher. Who's right and can you cite a specific rule? Thanks, Ax3
  4. Just to answer, the President of the League, who's son was on the scoring team, called the District President and they made the ruling then and there, after looking at the green book.
  5. Big question. LL Rules. Is Umpire interference limited to interference with a throw? Situation: R3, 1 out, Pitch in the dirt, Catcher and Umpire go same direction and catcher's movement essentially trips the ump, who reaches out to keep his balance and basically knocks the catcher down on the ground, impeding his scramble to the ball so the catcher cannot make a play on R3 scoring from third base. Umpire rules ump interference and puts runner back on third. Long story, short, a big discussion ensues and the ump is overruled cuz apparently they read the rules and figured out that Ump interference only applies to a throw from the catcher. Can Blue invoke 9.01© in this situation?
  6. Looking for two nice navy ball bags. Can anyone help a brother out on the cheap? Got Paypal, hehe P.S. I'm in Houston
  7. My 14 yr old wants to start umping with me. We need to find him some inexpensive charcoal pants, and powder blue and cream shirts. His pant size would be 34 or 33 waist x 30 or 31 length. His shirt size is Med or Lg. Thanks for any info/leads.

    Quiet Swearing

    I can take anything he says and NEVER feel the need to reciprocate, at any level. I personally won't toss him until: 1. I feel that he is trying to show me up with emphatic body language and/or loud verbal abuse w/ or w/o vulgarities, 2. uses the words 'you' and 'you're' in a negative light. As soon as either of those happens, in the words of a great bunch of duck hunters in La. that I love, "He Gone!"
  9. I took the microplane from my kitchen and shaved my blunt-nosed Rawlings cheapy down to a NICE edge. Can even karate chop a sunflower stalk with it. hehe
  10. I am also in need of some plate/combo pants. Charcoal is the color and I need them a big 42 or a regular 44 with an inseam of 32/33. Any help is appreciated, just pm me.
  11. words to look out for: from my upbringing in South TX. hehe puto - male prostitute hoto - f*gg*t fondio - D*ck verga- D*ck penocha - P*ssy culero- slang for '*ssf*cker' cabron- bastard anything preceded by 'pinche' usually is bad also. - Damned, or GDamned
  12. Sorry I double posted this, but it might belong here better than in Free for All.
  13. No, it is flexible and can be sewn, taped or velcro'd inside your existing CP, adding that much more protection. I can do that for $90 easier than a full $180 and totally different CP. I mean the dude hit his head with a hammer with this stuff. If I'm not totally mistaken, I've seen a different video(will search for it) of a guy putting this stuff over his hand and slamming a hammer down on it, not hurting his hand at all.
  14. I personally wouldn't buy the $180 CP before I bought the 'Dead Stop'(18"x18"x5/16") for 80 bux, or the 'EGIS' (18x18x3/8") for 90 bux and installed it on my existing CP, whether it be the WVG/P, Douglas, etc. They have the CRT that is used to peel and stick inside football/baseball helmets. It would work the same on a CP, in my opinion.
  15. Yeah, you sound like my size range. Any big stuff you're clearing out might find a good home here. hehe
  16. Just wondering, anything BAD about the Champro cp23? I checked into the P210 and like it alot, however. I have pretty much settled on the Honigs w/ TW pads after investigating further, but I never saw anyone address the +POS ZRO-G mask I was considering. Shins I'll be looking into a little more, thanks for the suggestions. Thanks again for all the input from everyone, I appreciate it a lot.
  17. Stretch em out to 42/44 and I'll take 'em. hehe
  18. Just want to get some thoughts on equipment as I get back into the fray. I've got some ideas on what I want to get and it seems I've come to a couple choices on both the mask I want and the chest protector. I need experienced input to help finally choose one or the other. Tell me the GOOD, the BAD and what is the Biggest consideration to take into account in the choice. I found both items of each brand in the same price range, so it won't be based on that. If there is another comparable Brand/Model in the same price range, feel free to add that info too before I pull the trigger. Thanks in advance for your help. Mask: 1- Diamond iX3 2- +POS ZRO-G Chest protector: 1- Champro cp23 2- Diamond iX3 Need Ideas on Shin Guards too. Thanks, AX3
  19. I think I remember him saying that a few times, hehe. Papa Carl actually taught me the art back in the early nineties. Umpiring, that is, not being a Smitty.
  20. Hey everybody. Please call me Axe. I have recently got the umpiring bug again, as I took something like a 20 yr break from it. I don't even remember why I stopped in the first place. I hope I can make some sort of contribution here as well as learn/relearn a few things. I have to note that this forum struck me as the place to be, as an umpire, to discuss umpiring and everything related. Thanks for that.
