  1. 2 answers above cover you completely .......... "like it never happened"
  2. great, ...you're getting some good guidance here, and that search link should help too. You can also search by using "mask pads" or "mask pad replacement"
  3. @MadMax would say is .... "it's all about the pads" ...so .... replace your pads w/ Team Wendy pads, keep your mask and you're good to go!
  4. @conbo61 nails this here ......... I concur. That being said, please go to this forum, upper right corner and search for "mask recommendation" ...it comes up with 237 posts. Not all of them are exactly what you're looking for, but there's enough info here for you to read about masks for days and days! I did the search here, and I copied the link for you, I hope it works. If it doesn't work, let me know .... https://umpire-empire.com/search/?&q=mask recommendation&type=forums_topic&nodes=9&search_and_or=or&sortby=relevancy PLEASE .... DON'T
  6. You are being too technical/literal .... YES, it's still FPSR because, as @Kevin_K points out: it is a 'force play' (force play in effect)
  7. His elbow was IN FRONT of it because HE PUT IT THERE ..... YES, I've been saying for years that MLB needs to have retired umpires on call for the major broadcasts to go over calls and situations so people understand (like NFL)
  8. OH MY GOD ......... makes it SOOOO much worse!
  9. Any age official needs to understand the generic grasp of this before stepping on the field. I mean, please!
  10. I know you weren't the official .... Ugghhhhhh! So stupid! Like I said .... gives ALL OF US a bad name!
  11. Thoughts? This umpire is the REASON coaches HATE US before we even do anything! Making crap up and causing/looking for trouble. This is NOTHING all the time, every time, everywhere! This kind of stuff makes ALL OF US look bad!
  12. Happy Opening Day! And here's to a 'full' / healthy season!
  13. It depends on the lighting and how the photo is taken .... it can 'appear' a touch glossy, but it's not....
