  1. Yeah, you got that right about being the plate umpire, you're always moving around, you should never be mobile. I was always taught that your starting position is never your ending position. At least having the gear on made you feel warm. When you have a morning game on a cold day behind the plate, you're always moving around.
  2. 0421 is my birthday.........I bet it was cold on the legs there LVUmp34.......I was freezing all game and we went 9 innings.
  3. Greetings from the Lehigh Valley, PA area. I had my 2nd game of the year today and it was quite chilly out, but thankfully there was no snow out on the field.
  4. I use a throat guard on my Force3 silver/black. I use the magnesium throat guard that All-Star Sports has. I don't even notice the difference in the weight. I would recommend getting a throat guard.
  5. Also with the courtesy runner.....besides that it can be used anytime.......The courtesy runner must be someone that's not in the game at that time. I know in local rules, they can use the last batted out as their courtesy runner....In tournaments it's always someone that's not in the game.
  6. Gentlemen........I umpire all ages of FASTPITCH SOFTBALL.......been doing it for 18yrs.......been going to Nationals for the last 14yrs and you better believe that I wear the best equipment out there. I have a Platinum CP, Platinum Shin Guards, All-Star System 7 CP and Shin Guards, Unequal CP and Shin Guards and my masks that I use are the Diamond MLB mask, All-Star System 7 plus the Defender Mask. I really protect myself.
  7. I have a FM4000 mask and I love it........I've taken many shots off my mask and had no problems at all.........Maybe they should make a Matte finish for this mask or just do it in all Black.
  8. I wear presciption sunglasses all the time during the season, even games at nite, when you get the glare from the lights at nite when they turn them on to do a 8pm game here in PA.
  9. hello everyone....just wanted to chime in on this thread about the strike call.............it now is considered a strike if the batter holds the bat out and keeps it out there in softball..........she has to make an attempt at bringing the bat back for it not to be a strike.
  10. Most runners on a base on balls will touch the outside portion of the double 1st base. As long as the runner doesn't hesitate she can go to 2nd base, but only normally that happens when there's a runner on 3rd base, will the runner go to 2nd base. Sometimes, I've seen the runner just go through 1st base on a base on balls without any runners on base and then come back and touch the base.
  11. cool.............thanks for the info
  12. Thanks slo and NuBlue.........I'm trying to get my hands on 1 to use for this year's Fall Ball season. I have an MVP3000TI helmet, that I got a few years ago from All-Star. That mask is light as can be, but the straps can be a pain in the but, they come undone when I take my mask off and is time consuming to put them back on. Slo and NuBlue, what was the color of the SL bars on the cage of the MVP4000.
  13. Can anyone tell me........Does All-Star Sports send catalogs to individuals or is it just dealers that they send them too.
  14. Thank God........Fall Ball is here............I have 3 doubleheaders this weekend (6 Games in all). All the money I'm making goes to new equipment for next year.
