  4. Thank you for your service to our country
  5. Wow I wish I knew about this clinic earlier it looks like something I would like to attend I see it's an annual clinic so hopefully next year
  6. . A pitch came in so obviously and hit the batter, and before I could get the words out of my mouth, "Grandpa" said "it hit the batter . . . it hit the batter!!! . . . he gets 1st base!!!". I couldn't resist, so I turned around and merely said "thank you Sir, I wasn't sure" ;-) . . . (wink, wink) . . . his Granddaughter(?) said "quiet Pop, he knows what he's doing" . . . . alas, I vote of confidence from a spectator :-))))))))))) I'll give the old gent the benefit of the doubt and think that he just wanted to impress the other spectators in the stands that he could still see ;-) Good Times, Good Times! :-) Everyone have a SAFE and GREAT Memorial Weekend!!! SJA :-) Hey it's not easy being me
  7. I would have to agree with the posts above that you called a good game and there where other points in the game where it was lost. It is easy to blame the officials, because that's what people do, it's ALWAYS somebodies fault not mine
  8. I worked a 9u game this weekend and it sounds exactly the same I worked a 9u game this weekend and it sounds exactly the same

    I got this image in my head of a 9mm on the outside of the ball bag " Hey Blue where's that pitch " Then you tap on the 9mm and he say's "OK"
  10. Yeah I got the same message as well I'm gonna just chalk it up to the cost of doing the job
  11. Yeah I'm from Jersey ha ha Thanks Noumpern always good to get different opinions and views
  12. Ok so I have a brain fart on this question and thought I would ask for some help I'm wondering if it falls into last time by ? With R1 on second and R2 on first, B1 hits a ball in the left centerfield gap. R1 takes off and touches third base, but retreats because he believes the ball may be caught. The fly ball is not caught and R1 goes directly from where he had retreated to and advances toward home. After playing action stops, time is called. The defense executes a proper dead ball appeal of R1 for a baserunning infraction. The umpire allows the run to score since R1 had touched third base. a. Correct b. Incorrect
  13. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. After thinking this through I have to admit I am rushing the call, just another example of needing to slow down
  14. Sometimes it really feels that way ha haaaaa
  15. I should have been more clear I am starting in C and work towards 1st in the working area. I keep thinking that my biggest issue is that as stated I am rushing the call. Thanks Maven
  16. In the past three weeks I have had trouble with three bangers on first base, two where when I was in the C postion and one in A. I have asked my partners post game about them and they say they were ok calls, but its just a nagging feeling I have done alot of games so I'm wondering if I'm just worn out. I could be rushing my calls as well I just can't put my finger on it. So I am asking for any insight or suggestions to get over this hump. I have been putting off signing up for All Star games because of this. Is there any way to practice something, because these plays don't always happen in a game. Thanks in advance for any ideas
  17. Just remember the players and coaches are also responsible to know the situation. So shame on them

    My first is for 3-14 That is not gonna happen with all the remaining snow. Where the heck is the sun haha
  19. I saw once on the Red Wing web site that they had a safety shoe that looks like plate shoes. Might be an alternative
  20. Thank you to all our brave souls in the military, past, present and future.
  21. I always have trouble with this play. I continue to work on it but I feel being behind the runner your automatically at a disadvantage
  22. All I can say is wow. I think we can talk about different ways of doing things and their pros and cons without getting personal or expressing negative attitudes. I really like this site and the diversity it has to offer and I have picked up a lot of really good info but I hate it when guys start getting into pissing matches. Just my 2cents
  23. Safety is a very personal issue. You see it all the time, roofers with no safety harnesses on, welding with no goggles, using power equipment with no glasses and on and on. Most people don't learn until injury happens, I have seen it to many times. I have no problem with it as long as it doesn't affect me and when injury happens please don't complain about it. I feel bad for the person that protects themselves and still gets hurt. Then we get the almighty lawsuit because it must be somebodies fault I got hurt not saying that you Rulekeep will sue just a general statement. Wear what you want just stay safe
  24. I have both the Honigs and UA. I like them both but cover up the Honigs patch with an American Flag patch, I don't like the advertising either
  25. My magic number is three. Since everyone has bad days calling games I was wondering what do you guys do if your having one and have 5 games to do
