  1. I am working a High School County Semi-Final. For me it is a big game. I appreciate all the advice and detailed breakdown of what to do.
  2. Thank you for your help. Does anyone have anything on starting "on the dirt" with runners on 1st while working 2nd base?
  3. Umps, Do any of you have info on 4 man mechanics? I need all the info for positions. If anyone has specific info on using the wedge on a steal as well as how to get in positions for the double play on both sides of the field that would be appreciated.
  4. Have you seen the videos UCU has been putting out in social media with the laser plate? Does anyone know what company makes it and where you coukd find more information out about it?
  5. After All-star sent the wrong clip, one that fits came. To make it fit they want you to grind out the middle of the buckle to slide it into the strap so you don't have to take it apart. What is crazy to me is that it is not the exact same buckle. So the old male, doesn't fit the new female. The straps are pinched and just don't look great. I emailed All-Star and they sent me out a new protector.
  6. My clip broke my cobalt chest protector from a baseball impact. Any advice on how to replace the clip? Cobalt is sending me the male and female end of the clip system.
  7. I have watched a lot of Minor League 2 man baseball. This is a challenging play for a high schooler to make and then throw to the plate. Plate guy should get the ball in play/ out of play/ catch no catch, do the best with the play at the plate. I have never seen a Minor league runner test a fielder on something like that. This might just be chalked up to the level of play. Might not be a right answer to this question.
  8. I have always thought of it as an egg, but never heard anyone verbalize or write this. Be consistent. Call it in the 1st inning, call it in the 7th/9th inning.
  9. Has the crew size for MiLB increased this year due to the change in leagues? Are certain leagues up to 3 or 4 man?
  10. If you need a new bag give it a shot...it is cheep. I prefer my Amazon recommendation of Ump attire ball bags. High quality but expensive.
  11. We have a sportsmanship statement in NJ. No one listens...then when you bring the behavior to the player or coaches attention people just loose all sense of being human. My new line with HS coaches is "the student athletes/ coaches behavior is not acceptable for a co-curricular environment. It is not acceptable in the classroom and not acceptable on the field." Shuts the coach down and knows they don't have a leg to stand on with me or the AD.
  12. They are called Ump Attire...apparently Ump Attire was a clothing company before it was bought out by the current owner who made it more of an official supply company. Ump Attire website stopped carrying after a set amount of years after the buy out. https://www.amazon.com/Ump-Attire-Ultimate-Merchant-Factory/dp/B076DGQZL5/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Ump+Attire&qid=1626744291&sr=8-1
  13. These exact ball bags are sold on Amazon. They are fantastic....expensive...but worth the cost.
  14. Ok, are the guys from the US former minor league guys?
