  1. Never talk to parents and never give anyone your name unless they are signing the check!! In this day and age people complain and moan when things don't go their way. Even when in the wrong its always someone else's fault. Society cant handle authority figures. Just look how Law Enforcement is treated in this country. And of course its a daddy coach!!
  2. I have been using the McDavid Hex compression tights since 2006. I still have the same pair and its still going strong. I bought them from Lesters Upstate Sports in NY. I currently don't see it on their website. Ump-Attire has these which are new from Force3 https://www.ump-attire.com/Baseball-Umpire-Equipment/Clothing-Apparel/Under-Apparel/F3-TIGHTS_Force3-Umpire-Tights-with-Kevlar-Pads
  3. Even with snail mail and order coming from China you should have received it already!! Crazy!! Ump - Attire, Honigs you just cant go wrong.
  4. I bought the Smitty Convertible jacket in XXL. It definitely fits like a 3XL.
  5. Little things starting to get better. Slowing down!! Timing!!

  6. Havent been on the field since October 2013!! Ready to get back into the swing of things!!

  7. He has babies crying and trains blowing there horns! ! Lol!! And towards the end why did it feel like it was after midnight? ? To funny!! Sent from my SCH-I605 using Tapatalk 2
  8. I bought a System 7 this season. I have had 2 shoulder surgeries over the last few years. The System 7 is what I was looking for in regards to shoulder and collar bone protection. It works. Shoulder strap adjustments did wonders for getting rid of that tight bulky feel. I like it. I have no issues in regards to throwing after the strap adjustments. But my preference is handing the ball to the catcher so I rarely throw it anyway. My old protector is the WV Gold. I will be sending it to Team Wendy for some love.

    Had to go!!

    Too funny! I did a DH with him and he was telling me the same story. Those 2 teams met again 1st round of the playoffs, I did the game with Alfredo...no fireworks at that one thankfully. I had that team the week prior to this incident and had to put them in there place. From what I hear they bitch and moan during every game. They are the epitamy of "DADDY COACHES!!!!!" The coach I ran makes a comment after I toss him " In all my 17 years in baseball this is horseSH*#!!" I then say to him " I agree!! in my 27 years of umpiring I have never seen such nonsense!! " He stops stares doesn't know what to say and continues his long treck to shower time!!
  17. I used it when I first started umpiring LL my freshman year of HS. It was normal to use it back then when you started out. After a year or 2 I put together a few shillings and bought my 1st inside protector from Models. It was a Rawlings model. Sent from my SCH-I605 using Tapatalk 2

    Had to go!!

    Had my 1st ejection since 2007 season. After a close play at the plate in which runner was out sliding into home (I was base umpire) 3rd base coach starts screaming from the coaches box. Then he walks down to tell PU that it was a horse sh!t call! ! As he is walking back to coaches box he turns to his bench and screams that's why next time you F'n run that catcher over! ! You F'n hurt him next time! ! I then yell over coach you are gone! ! Long story short as a little more went on. This coach has a history from what I know. It was 15u travel team. But he had to go! !

    I have done the long stare that cut through some coaches like a knife. I had one coach start mumbling to the point he didn't know what to do? Sent from my SCH-I605 using Tapatalk 2
  22. For me I track the ball much better and stay locked in using the scissors. As for back issues not feeling anything yet. My daughter approves my stance! Sent from my SCH-I605 using Tapatalk 2
