  1. It's not too bad, you just have to split the velcro in a couple places and it work fine. Note I am using All-Star Luc in mine not Team Wendy but it should be the same. https://imgur.com/a/pqC2R3a
  2. That is a fair price. Ordering from Rakuten and shipping it from Japan was about $246 when I got one. Just know that you should probably upgrade the pads because they come with cheap vinyl pads by default.
  3. If anybody is looking for one there is a black AS Mag on Ebay starting at $150. https://www.ebay.com/itm/383405082419?ul_noapp=true
  4. Cobra and Wilsons have been sold.
  5. I still have both Wilsons
  6. They don't have them listed online so your best bet would be to give them a call and see.
  7. As contractors we can use a Schedule C under the sole proprietorship provision. The mileage deduction doesn't apply only to games, it also applies to preseason training and meetings as well.
  8. Got an update, apparently after I called they updated the website with the replacement Mag Pads, the graphite aren't listed but the other colors are. https://www.all-starsports.com/pfm4000mag.html
  9. You can call them directly for the Mag pads, They have also released a grey version for the regular lucs that you can see on the website. https://www.all-starsports.com/pfm25luc.html
  10. It's behind a paywall but if it is the Boston University one then the first issue I have is that it is unclear what strike zone they used in their analysis, in other articles I have seen it mentioned that they used a standardized strike zone which would both ease the data documentation, analysis, and comparison but would create severe validity issues as you would be introducing a known source of error since you are not accounting for the individual differences in strike zones for each MLB player. Unfortunately the actual article does not include how they determined the strike zone other than "Called pitches and strike zone overlay were populated from Baseball Savant, Pitch F/X (2008-16), and Statcast data (2017-18)." which does not inform me of whether they used a standardized strike zone or not. Listed is the link to the original study: https://www.bu.edu/today/2019/mlb-umpires-strike-zone-accuracy/
  11. The day's high was 83, at game time it was mid 70s
  12. After contacting him and sending him some additional pictures So is contacting the factory to investigate the issue and he said he will keep me updated. The other thing he said is that his is designed to be 3mm thick or 20% thicker than the original Mizuno.
  13. I just recently sent him an email through his website to let him know.
  14. My first HS scrimmage the pitcher bounced a curveball in front of the plate, hit me in the bottom of my jaw bone. Been wearing one ever since.
  15. Grabbed my backup FM2000 from the car.
