  1. Sorry. Doing school at the same time doesn't work. Thanks
  2. The agreement from 3 days ago just says, "All suspensions of 80-or-fewer games will be served in 2020 if games are played. Should the season be canceled, those suspensions would not carry over to 2021." https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-players-association-season-deal-coronavirus-plan There doesn't appear to be anything about how the full-season suspensions would work.
  3. Uhh that's not a Hollow Steel FM25. Unless I'm way off, that's a titanium at a great price. https://www.ebay.com/itm/All-Star-Hollow-Steel-FM25-LMX-Traditional-Baseball-Catchers-Mask-Silver/164063966518?hash=item2632f97536:g:PG0AAOSwTRZeOW~p
  4. Ohh never mind. I wasn't thinking when I wrote that. Sorry.
  5. What about pitch that bounces and the batter swings his leg up and kicks it while it's in the strike zone?
  6. If the fielder touches the ball while the ball is over foul territory then it's foul. If he touches it while over fair territory, then its fair. OBR's Definition of Terms: "FAIR BALL is a batted ball that... while on or over fair territory touches the person of an umpire or player. FOUL BALL is a batted ball that... while on or over foul territory, touches the person of an umpire or player, or any object foreign to the natural ground." Side note: funny that in both definitions, the book lists the umpire before the player. MLB obviously recognizes who's more important.

    Foul ball or out ?

    Here's the situation at the big league level https://www.closecallsports.com/2018/08/ask-uefl-foul-bunt-or-ball-fouled-away.html
  8. $26?!? And with the tag still on it!
  9. Just for my own future reference, if a player points at the spot where he thought the pitch was, or steps there etc., he should be run?
  10. The same one brand new on Samurai Gears is $420. https://www.samuraigears.com/product-page/mizuno-pro-titanium-mask

    I umpire and I also work as a basketball coach and referee at a rec center. I could legitimately have more/better hours and make more money at other jobs. But those other jobs aren't umpiring the great game of baseball. Those other jobs aren't getting to coach kids and make an impact in their lives. Yeah I make pretty good money for a teenager, and its being saved for college, but its not as much as I could make... And I don't care. Umpiring and coaching are two of my favorite things I've done in my life. I don't, and never will regret it.
  12. Okay, I'll try that on my leather pads (I replaced the memory foams with those, I found them to be too soft.)
