  1. Who says it wasn't hard enough! "I would do exactly what my supervisors wanted me to do." Is the easy way to get out of any hard question
  2. http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=29690985 I'm not one of those fans (umpire not a fan ) who thinks every inside pitch is being thrown at the batter, but this one looks pretty intentional to me. I won't even try to put myself in John Libka's shoes, because this is a level light-years beyond me. Plus its MLB so it has all the egos and grudges intertwined into everything. But what do you think about this? I feel like the pitcher could definitely be thrown out after the second one.
  3. Now you know how her husband must feel.
  4. Wow that's great! I'll definitely keep this in mind for future CPs. Thanks for posting! Also, nice to see Wilson got rid of the giant W and started using a police flag instead! Definitely improves the look!
  5. For me, I actually like all-black better. But I couldn't care less if my partner had white on his shoes. And charcoal grey all day.
  6. Wow, just wow. For me at least, he's gone as soon as he slams the bat and walks out there with his fists clenched.

    Fair or foul

    Where can I find the MLB Umpire Manual?
  8. @SeeingEyeDog (Great username btw) As requested: That's Todd Tichenor in the Nationals - Blue Jays game Tuesday.
  9. I've had the same issue with the Wilson Memory Foams in the heat.
  10. But I thought people were moving out of California, not to it.
  11. Don't ever do it. Our job is to officiate the game, which requires impartiality and fairness (in the broad sense of the latter). An FYC is the complete opposite of that.
  12. The same CP is listed at $90 on Ump-Attire vs. $55 on the link you posted. The rest of the website is stuff like lotion, handbags, and backpacks; no other umpire gear. Plus its not a retail business, because the address listed on the website is for a house. Their website was only created a month ago, and PayPal is their only method of payment. IMO it seems pretty unlikely to me that a home business would offer only one umpire product (unless you want to count the deodorant) at a steeply discounted price. Sounds too good to be true to me.
  13. However, maybe the cause of their shock isn't always acting, but sometimes because the previous umpires didn't do their job and enforce those rules.
  14. @mac266 I do the same as you do, if leagues have the same base rules (OBR or FED) but slightly different modifications for each.
