  1. totally different - I like and wear them both -
  2. I have several pair of pants (34 x 30) that are used but fine and maybe a few other miscellaneous umpire things. Just trying to free up some space and would like to donate them to either someone in need or a group of kids or whatever. If your group can use them pls email me atsimko.paul@gmail.com and I’ll stick them in a box and send them
  3. I have two pair of used Honig polywool plate pants size 34, hemmed to 30 length. I bought them a few years ago and never quite made it to a 34. In my defense, they are a tight 34. They are in very good shape and nice pants. I was thinking $50 plus shipping for the pair.
  4. Great job seeking out advice is the most important reply to the OP. Experience and your obvious willingness to learn will take care of the rest
  5. thanks very much for sharing @maineump I havent been on this site in a while and didnt know we had someone on the WS - congratulations on that honor! Did you have Hawaii at all - they were my wife's favorite by far!
  6. since when are navy shirts bad? I missed that

    Its funny that you say that Rich - I sometime feel like I am TOO close and have to work on finding the right distance
  8. Looking for advice on how to better see the tag from C on a catcher throwing behind a runner on 2nd. I find that I can't really get around the throw to get a good look a the runner contacting the bag and the tag - I am often screened by the runner. Maybe I'm starting too deep? Anyone else have that issue and any advice?
  9. I love my Wilson Charcoal. Fits great with the harness that came with it and I feel very protected. I bought it used on craiglist 10 years ago and have used it for 80-90 plate games a year and i see no reason no replace it. I used a gold for part of a season and never felt comfortable in it.
  10. these guys do a good job
  11. i used to be a stickler about not calling time - now I just do
  12. why not change into your pants at home or at work?
  13. Say only what you have to. Give an explanation in simple terms, either explaining what you saw or what rule you are applying. What you say can and will be used against you
  14. especially since "catch" is irrelevant when it comes to a tag up

    Base award

    isnt this similar to a right handed pitcher stepping back and separating his hands at the same time while spinning to throw to 1st? We (or I ) see this all the time - if he fakes the throw, are we calling the balk?
  16. So fed there can be obs but obr only if intentional?
  17. And would FED be different? I know that softball would
  18. In the yankee game today there was R1 and the ball was hit on the ground to F3 (actually deflected off F1). F3 fielded the ball well up the line maybe 15 feet in front of the bag. The BR, rather than run into the tag, retreated back towards the plate to give R1 time to get to 2nd. F3 chased him and ultimately tagged him. My question is how far can he retreat? Would he be out if he retreated back past home plate? And what if ( and this almost happened) F2 “obstructed” him while he was retreating towards the plate?

    fair or foul

    if the fielder touches the ball over foul territory before it reaches the base, it is a foul ball. position of the fielders feet is irrelevant

    Strike Call

    i say something close to "hike" and I hammer
  21. How are you calling safe if you cant see the pulled foot but the ball beat the runner? I would think that you would only be calling safe if you had him safe regardless of the foot or if you saw a pulled foot. no?
  22. If the fielder took the throw on the bag like a 1st baseman before Judge got there (like a force play), he would still be out right? It was obvious that they were appealing. Judges running almost got them to screw it up by making the more difficult tag play
