  1. She sat down and talked with them about it... I think she was ok with it. I think you’re trying way too hard to find something to be upset with.
  2. X is an unannounced substitute for H...
  3. I think a lot of people worry themselves with things that are of no consequence to them when they don't know the procedures that are actually in place...

    What rule set is this league played under so we have a better idea of what FPSR you are speaking of...
  5. Oh... Didn't know all runners advancing a base was complicated...
  6. Why not just make it the OBR rule?
  7. Then he was just fishing for a call...
  8. If I'm 100% sure on my call... There is absolutely no need to get together. Question for you. Did you wait until the voluntary release of the ball by F3 before signaling? Did you give the transfer mechanic as well?
  9. From the point that the ball touches the glove or hand as long as the defender maintains possession from that point
  10. Find someone that has a Cricut machine and just have them cut a W out of yellow vinyl
  11. Well the top is done through the existing Velcro straps on the F3 through the plates of the Gold plastic

    Overrule continuation

    I'm not coming flying in while the ball is still live... Once play has relaxed, I am calling time and calling my partner over to let them know that I 100% have the ball on the ground, then we fix it from there.
  13. Keep in mind that a bunt is an intentional act. While the batter may have squared to bunt, if the umpire doesn’t judge that the batter made an attempt to bunt the ball, I.e. was attempting to avoid being hit by the pitch, and the ball still hits the bat and goes foul, it would just be a foul ball.
  14. Every year I go back to the local athletic association that I started umpiring at and help run training classes for new umpires. I also try to get up there on days that I don’t have assignments to talk shop with the kids and do evaluations/in game teaching.
  15. Not the majestic one... but https://stripes-and-strikes.myshopify.com/products/united-mac-1-4-zip-pullover-plate-jacket
  16. @The Man in Blue I have sent you a message.
  17. What "games" aren't you willing to play?
  18. If you got a receipt then you are registered. It was the same when I went the past two years. They will send something out closer to the camp with all the information for the weekend. Get ready to work hard, learn, meet some great people, and have fun doing it.
  19. Well... it is home to more than a few D1 umpires... The home to a few very good camps... Home to SEVERAL colleges of all levels... Not a terrible drive to many other schools... Has an airport... I'm sure @MidAmUmp can shed more light on it for you.
  20. Order one from Ump-Attire right now and it will be there by Thursday.
  21. The plate is part of "the grounds"....
  22. It is extended at least 2" below the built in TG it is offering plenty of protection. You need it to hit something other than your throat... So if it hits the built in TG it won't hit your throat... same as your CP.
