  1. @Jimurray He got back in time, and the miss of 2B was appealed.
  2. @maven The defending team did appeal. I forgot to mention that.
  3. I guess this post would fit here... Anyway, 9U game about a month ago. The runner on first is stealing on the pitch, but the batter flies out to LF. The runner was roughly 5 feet past 2B going towards third when he realizes he has to go back to 1B. He decides to cut through the middle of the field (not re-tagging 2B). He is called out. The 1B coach was confused and asked why the runner was called out, and I explained that he didn’t re-tag 2B. Then, the coach replies, “Oh, I didn’t know we were going to be technical in this league!” I ignored the comment and was trying everything I could not to start laughing hysterically. For whatever reason, I found the response to be really funny.

    Mask Porn?

    Is this actually a +POS? I've never seen that before...looks kind of Diamond-ish.
  5. So I'm assuming that Wegner and Winters have a Wilson "W" patch sewn onto their mask pads...

    Mask Porn?

    In addition to what @codizzled said, since the frame doesn't curve as much and as closer to your face, it could cause much more harm than if you were to get hit in the face by a foul ball with a regular mask. So the best advice is just to stay away from those in general.
  7. Those two companies haven't made any new apparel in a while. Smitty has stayed up-to-date.
  8. When you say what I have quoted above, I'm assuming the energy goes to the pad right (hopefully not your face)? or am I just off?
  9. I'm pretty sure he wore those tan TWs on more than one occurrence.

    Mask Porn?

    In my personal opinion, I think the grey Wilson pads as shown above look better with the black frame. That's just me.
  11. He was wearing this for the first month and a half or so of this season, then switched over to the black pads, and now switched back.
  12. It also said on the page that Sky Blue will be available Jan. 2017.
  13. I haven't seen the +POS masks listed on ump-attire recently. Do they still carry those masks?

    I've seen both of these mechanics before - but is it ok to be in scissors when the catcher sets up inside, or is just staying box and being "higher up" (lack of a better term) correct?

    Paul Emmel

    I'm probably not the first person to post this but ICYMI… the batter lets go of the bat mid-swing and the end of the bat hits Emmel in the head and he started bleeding profusely from his scalp. Of course he did leave the game. http://mlb.mlb.com/r/video?content_id=850791683
  16. You can watch an out-of-market MLB on Fox game on MLB.tv. For example, this weekend's Fox games are Pirates-Cubs, Braves-Mets, and Tigers-Royals. If your TV has Pirates-Cubs zoned for your region, you can go onto your MLB At Bat app and watch Braves-Mets or Tigers-Royals, just not Pirates-Cubs b/c you would be blacked out. You're still unable to watch the postseason and World Series on MLB.tv
  17. I would also like to add to what you said by saying that travel hockey is also very expensive. I'm not familiar with the travel hockey world that much, but if I'm correct, parents are spending close to $2000 in total fees for their kid to play travel hockey
  18. I'll chime in here. Strike zone: I will echo what some have been saying which is more strikes = more outs = faster game time. If you shrink the strike zone, that completely contradicts what MLB is trying to accomplish with its pace of play rules. Intentional walks: How much time does it really take for a pitcher to lob in 4 pitches? 30 seconds maybe? Also, there are some instances (even though it happens one or twice a year) where since the pitcher isn't throwing 100% like he's been doing all game and sends one sailing to the backstop or shorthops the catcher which sends the ball to the backstop. If there's a runner at 3rd, he'll try to score and make a play at the plate, which is exciting, and keeps the viewer engaged. I remember that exact thing happening in the 2014 NLDS between the Nats and Giants - whoever the pitcher was sent one sailing to the backstop and the runner tried to score from 3rd and was out on a close play. So to sum up, IMO the smaller zone will slow the pace of play down, and the IBB doesn't take that long, and there's a potential for excitement if the pitcher sends one to the backstop.
  19. Well they are PROFESSIONAL umpires so it would fit in this section. But it would also fit in equipment
  20. Dale's at it again: link
  21. They both have been wearing the long sleeve powder blue shirts. I have seen those shirts listed online but I've never seen a MLB umpire wear them Scott - http://mlb.mlb.com/r/video?content_id=724454783 Hallion - http://mlb.mlb.com/r/video?content_id=718687483
  22. Since we're in the "announcers" category, which MLB team has the TV announcers, and MLB which team has the best radio announcers? Scully is a no-brainer, I also like the Giants (Kuiper, Krukow, Miller, Flemming) and the Reds guys (Thom Brennaman, Chris Welsh/Jeff Brantley).
