  1. Can you give some clues and I'll research the video
  2. Saw this in the Fed Facebook group. Whoof.
  3. Unless you're standing weird, the F3 would take most of that, even if it hits you on the side
  4. That pitch sounds like caught the hollow beneath the knee, especially for fall ball. I highly recommend the F3 shins. They're comfortable, and you won't feel anything that hits you. Another benefit to getting gear now is, you make sure they're the right fit and are adjusted properly before you wear them in a game.
  5. @Senor Azul Yeah, that's why I don't think I'm right in that thought.
  6. Oh yeah, that pure sharing what I just saw. I thought that was implied when I said that F1 was not trying to make a play at all, just standing there. BR had completely regained his composure and was in full control of himself running to 1B. The coach was yelling at the catcher for not just picking up the ball and throwing it to 1B, which would have negated all of this, because that should have happened before this trainwreck occurred. TBH, I'm probably following the ball and picking up the touch of 1B and not seeing any of that happen normally. But, since I have absolutely nothing to do at this point, I do. I called the OBS. BR beat the throw anyways, so I didn't even have to really come close to the **** end of the stick on this one. I think if the catcher comes up and throws around the time that the collisions happen, I'm not calling it. The kid had barely made an attempt to advance at that point, and is 85 feet from 1B. Probably the most interesting play I'd had in a while. I had even gone about a month without having obstruction, and got it twice in that game and again the next day. Gotta love fall ball!
  7. Had a bit of a third world play the other day. I'm in the field. Fall ball Middle School game, coached by Varsity coaches. R3, 2 strikes on batter, swings at pitch in the dirt that got away and goes to the backstop. Batter-runner backs up out of the way. F1 is standing near the cutout in the grass still. Batter-runner starts running to 1B and collides with R3. R3 scores. BR continues going to 1st and runs into F1, who still is no closer to HP than the cutout, is not trying to make a play. What you got?
  8. Wow, around here, Varsity coaches will be mad if you're not calling pretty much chalk to chalk. They don't want that tight of a zone for pitchers that should be able to hit their spots. Especially when it's under 35 and snowing.
  9. This was pretty funny. Most of the time, they really were wrong, but Gardner wasn't the guy!
  10. https://video.twimg.com/tweet_video/EA2LeozU4AEfYnY.mp4 WUG? I don't think he would have been out there, but runners could have advanced because of this.
  11. Yes, it's common. Most of the time, it's either super oviis and you say yes he did, or you're not absolutely sure and say no he did not.
  12. Well we're creating a brand new situation here, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    It amazes me that "are your players properly and legally equipped, to the best of your knowledge" is always answered yes! Then, here comes an illegal bat. Then, Catcher takes one to the step children and oh, he's not wearing a cup! Coaches aren't listening at any point
  14. I use the umplife one. It's so much easier to write on, and I don't have to go through the folding and unfolding. @noumpere what do you use as a surface to write?
  15. I would've tossed when they said to get a new profession.
  16. We got it easy - no bras, no makeup, and not to mention, no menstrual cycle.
  17. Don't go cheap on shoes. I wore some Nikes and stepped on something one game and my whole foot was purple. I had a full slate of middle school games and didn't get rest for it until Christmas and developed a little plantar fasciatis. It hurt and I could barely flex my toes. I bought Zigs immediately and they're so much more comfortable. I love the stretch pants. Get the Fox 40 with the rubber guard. Your teeth will thank you. I clean my whistle with that 3-minute denture cleaner. Drop it in water, dissolve, put whistle in. Rinse and I soaked in straight water for a bit to get any smell out.
  18. Here's what I had: Catcher pops up, bat hits him hard in the thigh and he (not on purpose) goes to his left, down almost to his knee in pain. I look down to see how bad he took it. I look up and pitcher is trying to throw home. Catcher jumps up and a few feet back to the plate to try to catch pitcher's throw, but cannot cover the ground in that state. Ball goes to the backstop, I think back through the play. I call "Time! That was interference! Batter is out!" and send the runners back to their bases, declaring "All runners return to the base they held at the time of the pitch" As I explained to the offensive coach, the act of the batter recklessly throwing the bat and hitting the catcher, took the catcher out of the ability to make the play. I think I could have declared R3 out since it would have been an easy 1-2-3 double play. Offensive coach accepted that it was INT, then started fishing with "well usually INT is called immediately." I countered telling him that I needed to make sure they were coming home. If they go to 2nd, I don't have an effect on the play. He complained that F1 hesitated to throw. My response is, because his catcher was down almost on the ground and recovered to try to field his throw.
