  1. I'm making room in my closet and getting rid of stuff I'm no longer using. I don't have any firm prices in mind so shoot me a PM with what item(s) you are interested in, along with an offer and we can figure it out. The final price will include shipping so please take that into account. Payment via Venmo.These items are no more than three years old and have limited use, with the exception of the base pants (They got me through pro school). Force3 Version 1 (4-springs) mask - It's in great shape since with no dents or bends and the pads are also in great shape with some discoloration from sweat on the interior of the chin pad. (3) Smitty Poly-Wool Base Pants - 34" waist and hemmed to 30"-31" inseam. Good condition and still have a few seasons left in them. (2) Gerry Davis MLB Poly-Wool Plate Pants - 36" waist with 1.5" flex waistband and hemmed to 30"-31". These have only been dry cleaned and are in excellent condition. (2) Smitty Black with Grey Panel Short Sleeve MLB Replica Shirts in Size Large - Great shape. These are the first run Smitty produced, NOT their second version. (1) Smitty Black w/ White Piping Short Sleeve Shirt in Large - Great Shape (1) Smitty Black w/ White Piping Long Sleeve Shirt in Large - Great Shape
  2. Call them. Their customer service has been absolutely outstanding. A piece of the V3 protector I had purchased had loose stitching, and they shipped me a replacement part that day. They take care of their customers.
  3. Thanks all for the replies. I'll make sure that in the future, I will say my piece no matter what and let my partner do with it what they wish.
  4. No on the postgame. Evidently, he had to get home and didn’t have time to hang out. He was gone off the field before I had even dumped the game balls on the plate... I have always gone for help with an open mind and preparedness for needing to change my call if I kicked it by being blocked, etc. and my partner clearly saw what I did not. Thanks for the feedback @Matt
  5. Varsity HS game and 2 man system- ground ball, F3 is pulled off the bag several feet on the throw, BU bangs him out because he didn’t adjust for the offline throw. I’m the PU and straddling the first base line about 20’ up from the plate and see what happened. Head coach for offense is asking for time and goes to my partner. Partner comes in, we meet, and tells me he had the guy on the base and doesn’t ask for my help. I ask him if he wants to know what I saw and he says no, runner is out. I said okie doke and start back toward home. HC is pissed (as am I) so I give him a little extra rope. He is pissed at me because it looks like we got together to go over the play, and I missed him getting pulled 4-5’ off the bag or wasn’t paying attention. We have a quick, firm discussion, and I allow him to quietly vent while I don’t dime out my partner for refusing my help. I keep him in the game and we move on. First off, I will pregame this with my partners from this point forward. My question is should I have immediately overruled him since I clearly saw it or did I do the right thing waiting for us to meet, or should I have initiated a meeting with my partner before the coach had a chance to call time?
  6. I talked to Honig’s this week and they have them. Call them and they’ll send you the fitting instructions. $295 plus $12-15 for shipping.

    F3 mask

    Like Panther32 said, these masks are built like tanks. The weight hasn't been an issue for me, but it is worth considering as these are heavier than traditional masks. F3 masks are designed to be wore snug on your head, so that may be something you need to get used to if you wear your current mask loose. The field of view is good and the bars are a shade slimmer than bars on other masks like the Wilson Dyna-Lites. I like the mask enough that I am purchasing one as a backup to my current one. If all else fails, buy it through ump-attire.com and return it within 60 days if you don't like it.
  10. @gnhbua93, I know. I was just updating in case anyone read Thunderheads' comment and thought I was successful in my hunt.
  11. PM me if you have one you'd like to part with. Thanks!
  12. Sent you a PM about the TW pads.
