  1. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077D3G25G They're sold out right now. I hope I can find mine in the next 6 weeks. These are pretty great. One charge will last the game. If you have a DH, use one at a time.
  2. My friends and I swear this is a dude we know from around here.
  3. I don't hate it at all. Make baseball fun again
  4. Wear thicker/layer socks. We're not too far from each other, and I have done a few games in that temp range, and thicker socks saved my feet.
  5. I seent it. If he'd been running in the runner's lane, he wouldn't have twisted his ankle. I didn't think he was trying to hurt Muncy though, just bad route.
  6. It's not just a nice chair for after game drinking, you don't have to clean the whole mess if a bottle leaks!
  7. Dang, yours is as poorly organized as mine this year? I'm pretty embarrassed about my lack of organizational skills this season.
  8. Last night, Babe Ruth Double Header. First game goes to the time limit, so we're already behind. . I'm on the bases 2nd game. Partner rings up a kid on a beautiful pitch to end the 5th. He throws his bat, then throws his helmet. Partner says "Hey 2, you're probably gonna want to hold onto that helmet" and turns to retrieve some baseballs. I see that the kid is about to be stupid, and he stops, turns, and flips off my partner behind his back. I said "2, you're done!" and tell his coach. They only had 9 players, so game over! Coach comes up later and tells us he kicked the kid off his team
  9. This year, I was replacing some pants that were getting worn, and I got some combos mostly to wear in sub-45 weather. Replaced my F3 shins because they had worn through in the ankles from wearing high tops with them. This week, I got cleated. 18U, RHH, Batted ball comes to a stop an inch fair and an inch out of the LHH box. I pop up and observer the fair/foul, possible B-R running into the ball, and obs/int/tangle/untangle situations F2 grabs ball and comes back at R3 coming home, who tries to jump around tag (a good 8 or so feet up the line, not right near the plate
  10. I did one game, it felt awkward. We used a modified 3-man, I'd take the lead runner, and if there was only one, partner rotated home. He stayed in A the whole time. Thankfully, we didn't have anything down the 3b line
  11. The MAC doesn't think we'll make it past then
  12. This was a hit with my core partners, mostly with the cooler full of beer part
  13. I made a bit of a parody of the Wedding Singer song - I wanna Grow Old with you I got a cooler full of beer for after the game I'll take the plate if you're feeling lame Oh I wanna ump games with you I've got medicines if your body aches I'll loan you equipment if yours breaks That's all I came up with the other morning drifting in and out of sleep
  14. Not sure on that type of rule. He said that according to 2019 rules, it's a foul ball once it hits the chest.
  15. In the one with Ted Barrett, he said that this year, the foul/foul tip rule is changed, so that if the ball comes off the bat and contacts any part of the catcher, and he catches/traps it against his body, that it is a live ball foul tip. He says it's starting when they start up play again. Has anyone heard anything on this? I cannot find anything anywhere.
