  1. Have you guys seen the prior black Douglas CPs without significant mods going for north of $190/$200? If so thats kinda nuts
  2. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/umpire-joe-west-on-president-george-h-w-bush-rod-slap/id137699414?i=1000472930366 for people with iPhones, etc with a link to the Apple podcast app
  3. They were clumsy and awkward (I never used them or even considered using them). Think I put them on once when I got the CP in the mail in my house and thought "nooooo way." It wasn't a bad protector I compared it with a veteran guy in our association who had one of the original Wilson West Vests from 25 years ago its pretty similar.
  4. Wilson doesn’t make this anymore, and I bought one about 5 years ago and wore it for a few months, but this was the successor to the Wilson original “west vest” protector. It was relatively low profile, not nearly as protective as a gold or platinum, and was a step up from the above referenced Wilson Gray/Charcoal CP.
  5. I recall a dust up about 10years ago or so when Joe West’s crew would wear their “plate coats” on the bases. He kept getting fined but didn’t care.
  6. I did this about 20 years ago on a pair of spot bilt leather plate shoes...compete pain in the ass would never do it again lol
  7. Got mine back today. Sent it in and it was ready two days after they received it. Douglas is quite a pleasure to deal with. In case anyone is wondering, the shoulder flaps added in this picture is all they offer. I spoke with Jeff and he said these are the only ones they put on. There are old pictures on this forum of other people having various sizes and types of flaps added by Douglas (some white, black, etc).
  8. I can vouch for him too if there’s anybody out there not sure about buying from him. With all the stuff he sells, everybody on the forum has probably bought from him!
  9. Its funny how we have seen recent promotions (Whitson during 2019, and now Lentz, DeJesus, and Visconti) nowhere near the top of games worked. A quick ascension. Makes you wonder if the guys at the top of this list won't get a full-time job. 2019 Call-Up Umpires, sorted by MLB experience (Underlined = most gms ump'd that season):1) Chris Segal - 513 Games (111 in 2014, 116 in 2015, 21 in 2016, 124 in 2017, 141 in 2018).2) Ryan Blakney - 475 Games (88 in 2015, 142 in 2016, 119 in 2017, 126 in 2018).3) Ben May - 404 Games (30 in 2014, 88 in 2015, 69 in 2016, 104 in 2017, 113 in 2018).4) Sean Barber - 393 Games (92 in 2014, 58 in 2015, 67 in 2016, 67 in 2017, 109 in 2018).5) Tom Woodring - 380 Games (102 in 2014, 54 in 2015, 36 in 2016, 107 in 2017, 81 in 2018).6) Nic Lentz - 363 Games (105 in 2016, 109 in 2017, 149 in 2018).7) Chad Whitson* - 332 Games (7 in 2014, 8 in 2015, 52 in 2016, 124 in 2017, 141 in 2018).8) Ramon De Jesus - 260 Games (97 in 2016, 81 in 2017, 82 in 2018).9) Roberto Ortiz - 142 Games (8 in 2016, 66 in 2017, 68 in 2018).10) Ryan Additon - 129 Games (55 in 2017, 74 in 2018).11) Nick Mahrley - 108 Games (31 in 2017, 77 in 2018).11) Jansen Visconti - 108 Games (108 in 2018).13) Jeremie Rehak - 98 Games (98 in 2018).14) Shane Livensparger - 86 Games (40 in 2017, 46 in 2018).15) John Libka - 77 Games (19 in 2017, 58 in 2018).
  10. This tweet provides some more info
  11. Can anybody post a side by side comparison pic of the GD poly spandex pants and another popular pair (such as the Smitty poly spandex pants)? I’d like to see the GDs before pulling the trigger on an order.
  12. Sold, please lock @Thunderheads Thanks!
  13. Im somewhat confused on the initial post. Id like to help out the original poster but am not sure what exactly he is referring to. Is this a "rookie class" being held in the classroom and then field work is being done by some other group?
