  1. That looks like the red light camera I got a couple months ago in Illinois.
  2. I'm standing on our corner in full field uniform, calling balks on the cars that blow through the 4-way stop at an average of 12mph.
  3. Since we're all on house arrest and probably bored, looking for something to do, I recommend watching Letterkenny. It's hilarious. There's lots of language in it, so don't watch if that bothers you. You'll add a lot of phrases to your vocabulary that work in game management. "Cmon that's two calls you've missed blue!" "Coach, take about 80% off there bud" "That pitch was outside blue!" "Give your balls a tug!" and many chirps about people's moms that are probably too inappropriate to put here. You'll have a good time laughing away the corona virus!
  4. No ****. I spent $500 on some upgrades, new warm weather stuff and sunglasses and after some cage work, I'm ready to go
  5. Wheel Snipe Celly Boys! I hope she chirped them hard
  6. Watching people deny all of this reminds me of trying to argue with people who don't know the rules/mechanics like we do, that they're wrong. But hey, they've played baseball or watched it all their lives, so they're experts. I tune out most media stuff and just try to look at the sources, like that British study (no, I didn't understand most of it), The WHO, CDC, etc. Everyone saying it's overblown, I assume they have at least made it halfway through medical school?
  7. One of the schools here emailed saying schools closed until April 13, they have to then get 10 practices in for players to be eligible to play in a game.
  8. I Read that they're doing so.
  9. If it's true that the coach spit on him, that started it
  10. That's the NCAA definition, but I'm looking for NFHS.
  11. The presenter was a friend of the umpire who called him immediately after the game and he said it was ruled an illegal slide.
  12. Well when I said straight line, I meant not veering at the fielder. The play we were discussing i can't find. It was Kent State @ Indiana and PU ruled it an illegal slide. He took off F2's glove and at the point of contact, his knee maybe was just starting to tough the ground.
  13. How about a tag play? 2-32 f says it has to be on the ground, but on a force play. Seems like a legal slide is a legal slide, no matter what type of play.
  14. This has come up in our association meetings. The rule book does not define a legal non-feet first slide. So if the player slides head first, what is the requirement to be legal? - not leading with the shoulder/hands - in a direct line
