  1. Nashville area college group- Mid South, they have a Facebook page HS- TSSAA, https://cms-files.tssaa.org/documents/tssaa/BBAssociations.pdf Nashville group and Murfreesboro is a strong group too, maybe 30 mins east of Nashville.
  2. SEC and ACC have been doing this for 2 (maybe 3) seasons now. Little reliever pack attached to chest protector, earpiece in ear, bench has a walkie. Unfortunately I have seen some that still go a look at the wrist card to decipher what was said. cant believe MLB/MiLB haven’t advanced it
  3. Shoes are sold. all pants available. Price is for both the plate and base pair not individually.
  4. $115. Thread in Buy/Trade section has a pic
  5. I feel the same way about the sizing on the low cut. I wear 13 in everything daily. Wore 14 in zigs, ordered 14 in NB and felt like I was wearing Shaq’s shoes. Ordered 13 and thought they were good but wore in a game, had heel slip and loose feeling, now up for sale (if anyone is interested) going to order a 12 and give those a run.
  6. Only shipped to US, PayPal NB Plate shoes, low cut, black with white accent, size 13 regular Worn maybe 5 games, thought they fit but NB run big on me $115 shipped Pants: dropped close to 100 pounds so got to clear some space, length is taken from top of waistband to end of cuff, I wear a 30 or 32 inseam in dress pants Honig's Poly-Wool: practically brand new, perfect condition, permanent crease glued in already Plate: 46W x 41.5L, Base 46W x 41L $80 shipped for both pairs Smitty Poly-Spandex (non adj waist): worn less than 1 season (20 game each pair tops) Plate: 46W x 41L, Base: 46W x 40.5L $50 shipped for both pairs
  7. There is a between innings clock for maybe 5 years now, and the specifics have changed a couple times. In the same amount of time there has been a 20-second pitch clock with no runners on base. If there was no visual clock displayed then base umpire (varies on # of BU) kept it. Was not strictly enforced. Needed egregious violations to be called.
  8. My take on old school is the “squared off” ear wings and throat extension. The new titanium shape is more of a rounded off ear wing that mimics the look of the aluminum.
  9. I’ve heard of people using a cover from a check book with some cardboard slid into the pockets to stiffen it up. Would need to be in ball bag pockets, to long for shirt pocket. Old thread too Amazon’s prime https://www.amazon.com/Adams-USA-Holder-Style-Black/dp/B07B9XHK2Z/ref=sr_1_1?crid=27WXGR89DFSS1&keywords=umpire+lineup+card+holder&qid=1563746368&s=sporting-goods&sprefix=Umpire+li%2Csporting%2C133&sr=1-1

    I’ve worn these the past couple years. Knee length, cotton feel but not cotton (can’t stand the polyester soccer sock types). Want to say I got them at Dicks as a two pair pack around $18 https://www.underarmour.com/en-us/ua-over-the-calf-team-socks/pid1270244-100 have almost pulled the trigger on the Gerry Davis ones or the Force3
  11. Trust me I did a search for this question. Searched for New Balance, lacing, laces, metatarsal guard. To many threads to read through. Just got got a pair of V3 lows in size 13. Snugged them up while trying them on. Metatarsal plate seemed to get pushed towards the toe and away from the shoe. Is this common and normal or is there a way to lace them. Worried about ball hitting the “lip” that is created now. There was a thread in 2011 that addressed this issue, but for the Reebok Mag’s.
  12. Reviving a semi-old post because I just ordered a F3 V2. When I put the mask on and do a hand compression of the lower spring I can feel the corner of the metal support hitting my chin. It in the area as the pics, and also where Kurt Suzuki got cut. I do believe it’s that compression force being applied to a thinner skinned area with a hard object (bone) behind it that causes that laceration. Anyone with the F3 added anything in that area to maybe lessen the sharpness hitting the face? I’m thinking of adding a small piece of adhesive foam somehow between the pad and support. Want to lessen my chances of needing stitches during the middle of a game.
  13. There is a phone number in these forums if you search for it. I used it earlier this year, Dan picked up, told me what the “issue” was and I got my mask a couple days later. Know it’s an extra step you shouldn’t have to take but the phone call helped me. Its in a post that Dan tried to defend himself about his bad customer service. It may even be at the beginning of this one.
  14. U3 calling out of baseline on over-throw ball trick? Saw the left arm extended out around time of the tag.
  15. I’ve worked in several college groups D2/3/JC/NAIA. No shoe restrictions in any of those. Most at high D1 wear varying shoes too, but mostly black, usually with some white, some have had grey too. Just can’t be over the top. A good reference point would be the New Balance base shoes as to how much white is acceptable. Most wear some type of baseball trainer styled shoe. I wear Nike running shoes and have gone between the Air Max line, Excellerate and started with the Pegasus 34 this year MiLB that I’ve seen in recent years are mainly New Balance, but have seen other brands though. Don’t believe they have restrictions. Could be trying to stay with MLB standards, could be they are cheaper or get a discount or hold up longer. Dunno.
