  1. @Thunderheads, lock it up please. These are going to a new home!
  2. Have had a couple of inquiries, but no offer/sale yet. Someone take these off my hands please!
  3. Update - the pending sale on these large (and in great shape) shin guards did not materialize, these are available once again. Make me an offer, they are boxed up and ready to ship to you!
  4. Sale pending on these. And no, not to Thunderheads!
  5. Yep, 20", that is not a typo. In any case I am no longer active here (or in umpiring), but decided to post this to see if there is any interest in these shins. They are the newer gray shell/navy padding models, I used them for 3 seasons before my umpire retirement last summer. They are in great shape, and have been modified with plastic buckles as part of a Douglas factory recondition after season #2 - I did not care for the stock Douglas metal buckles. I sent Jeff Cook an email recently to find out if these could be reworked to a smaller size (to make them more sellable) and the short answ
  6. So maybe you should start a new thread for your sale instead of hijacking this one...
  7. The +POS pads are actually quite good, they are identical to the All-Star LUC pads. The value of the pads is probably less than $15 so you won't save a lot by buying a frame only.
  8. Hell, just call lots of them. Who cares how you do it? 😄
  9. My nephew plays 10U USSSA and the tournaments I have been to as a spectator have shown that they don't pay or respect their umpires, and they are getting what they pay for. It is apparent that most of these guys are not trained and at first glance they do not know how to manage a game or situations, but I do not blame the umpires for this; the TD's are treating umpires as a commodity and the blame lies with them. I say "at first glance" because I went to his last tournament of the season this past weekend and my seat in the bleachers was within earshot of the umpires' meeting that the TD

    You believe wrong!
  11. I cant get a guard on right with it,Sure you can.
  12. Your FM25 is a fine mask, worth investing in a new finish for it. I've had a lot of different masks and the FM25 is my favorite.
  13. Time shouldn't be called (in most cases) until the playing action is over. As far as the original question, the earliest time should be called is after the BR reached 1B, but you must also judge that all playing action has ended as well.
  14. I would have no "worry" of being known as the guy who habitually calls others on their BS excuses. If they suck on the dish, I wouldn't expect that they're much better on the pads. I think doing the pads well is harder. There are fewer opportunities to F-up on the pads , but those F-ups are usually signficant. I'd rather that he suck on the dish. You can't much care about what these guys think about you shaming them into working the plate. If this is a significant problem, then you're probably getting good at calling them on their BS. Why worry ? I disagree about
