  1. Here you go. I honestly think I could take it my shoe repair man he could sew it back for me. It was rather funny that my partner was telling me that he was getting hit in these specific areas and literally stuck his finger and broke the stitching.
  2. Working a game, shoulder pad seem on my West Vest gold came undone. I could not believe it. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Suggestions?
  3. This seems like a great product. They made a insert for just the front of your head. Seems like the umpire foul ball protection. I would consider buying it. Force 3 is really leading the way with protection.
  4. Team Wendy pads are always a great pick up. Nothing really jumping out at me on the Black Friday Sale on ump attire.
  5. I am interested if anyone umpires in Iowa and knows how the Iowa umpires feel about this situation? Info on the teams and if the umpire crew has been disciplined for actions or inaction by association or State athletic association?
  6. The regular davis charcoal pants. I have plate and base.
  7. Do we Davis pants shrink after washing?
  8. Looks like force 3 put out a new chest protector. Looks exactly the same as the old ones, but says it is better. Has anyone tried it? Pic is on umpattire
  9. I went to the state interpretations meeting at Becton on Monday. They said with runners on a ball hit down the right field line the plate umpire take the ball fair, foul, catch, no catch...no problem with that. Then depending on how far down the line the plate ump goes the base umpire might have to take the play at the plate. Who is the plate umpire? An Olympic track and field athlete?
  10. @Scott Kennedy What equipment will be on special for Black Friday?
  11. At what point is the school responsible for providing a safe field that meets the rule requirements set forth by the fed. I can understand a rare situation, but when it is expected to happen that becomes a problem. The school has a responsibility to provide a safe field for the student athletes. We are required to enforce fed rules. If I just decided to change a rule that would be unacceptable. I see it as the same thing.
  12. I may have ran into someone on this committee in my state. He was hoping for an independent person to count pitches who would receive pay for services. For this year it would present a problem if you call games for non-affluent schools. School budgets are set months in advance and by the time baseball season comes around they are hoping not to run out of money for the teachers let alone another person to "count pitches" Have to wait a few more days for official word.
  13. Thanks for guidance. I had a video on my phone from a clinic this summer and then my phone died. It was impossible to get down at the clinic but something I wanted to learn how to do it correctly.
