  1. Finally!!! This will look great with the deerskin.
  2. I have the grey ones. I just picked them up a couple months ago so I'm gonna hold onto them. Got them from @wolfe_man.
  3. They're very comfortable for me. I have both deerskin and the LUC pads and I prefer the deerskin. The grey looks pretty cool though.
  4. Best experience for me was this past June, visiting team destroying home team, 9-0. It's my 2nd plate of the day and getting late so I was tired and the zone was getting wide. Bottom of the 6th, and they pull a rally outta nowhere. And 15 minutes later, I'm walking off the field with a 10-9 victory. Little League can be amazing sometimes.
  5. Awesome, thanks for the helpful answers guys! I've never had a steal of home on a pitch yet in two years of umpiring, so I wanna be ready for it in case something crazy happens.
  6. Just saw this video and am wondering what would've happened if the pitch were called a strike but the runner still ruled safe. In this situation, a strike would end the game. Can anybody point me to a rule? This is definitely something I need to study up on. Thanks!
  7. @wolfe_man Would you sell just the grey pads by themselves?
  8. Thanks for the feedback, and glad to hear I made a good choice with the mag. I have the black frame with leather pads and think it looks absolutely great. I'll be sticking with it then
  9. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/617HILTnqgL._AC_SL1000_.jpg I've seen a couple of MLB guys using these All-Star frames with various pads. I already have the All-Star magnesium, just wondering how the view/feel compares.
  10. Personally I like John Gallante. He has a few good cage videos, along with mic'd up instruction videos.
  11. Is this still available? Also what color are the pads?
  12. Anybody know how they do their umpires on old timers day? It is a 4 man crew but they're not MLB guys considering they take the mask off with two hands and they don't wear numbers. I do like the added detail of the Rennert stance behind the plate though Picture from 2019.
  13. Ok so keep it more discreet, got it. Sounds like a less confrontational option. Yep, Fairfax County.
  14. Ok, I guess I thought it was a bigger problem than it was. If it does get to something personal, for example "Hey blue, do something," should that be addressed directly to the fans or ignored like any other quips from the stands? Is there ever a point where you should address the spectators personally? Thanks for the advice.
  15. Thanks for the advice, I've never had this situation before so I didn't really know the best way to go about it. Would it be better to talk to the coach right away or wait between innings?
