Hello all - 

A fellow teacher is wanting to umpire for the first time this year. Since everyone in this community is amazing, I thought I'd reach out and see if anyone has some extra equipment lying around to help get him started. I've got him hooked up with base shoes, shin guards, and ball bags that I wasn't using anymore. Here's a list of other things we're looking for (preferably at a cheap price and in good condition):

  • Mask (just a basic Dyna-Lite if available)
  • Chest protector (XL or 13 inch)
  • Plate shoes (Size 13 2E would be ideal, but 13 D will work, too)

Watch craigslist, there seems to be a couple guys cleaning out their closet up here in the PNW. If you buy local, you'd save quite a bit if you didn't have to ship. 

@codizzled (Cody), I notice you're not requesting one of the most important pieces of gear – a personal protector. I'm sure there are some umpires on here who might have a spare.   Otherwise,

I'm sure there are some umpires on here who might have a spare. :jerkit: :sarcasm:

Otherwise, too bad on the size 13 shoes... I have size 11 NB 460's here that need a little TLC, but they are serviceable.

If you need umpire shirts on the "stupid cheap" (and that aren't navy or softball powder blue), consider this guy on eBay:

He's a fellow umpire (former) trying to scratch out a go of it. He slashed his shirt prices in half, and I'm not sure if he's getting out of the business or not, but he has some shirts left. One of my junior umpires is around the same size as me (6'2", 206) and I bought him the '10 Black and '10 Sky Blue in XL, together, for less than the cost of one new TOC, Smitty or Majestic.

      EQUIPMENT FORUM ATTENDEES (primarily new folks)
      Warren (Umpire in Chief) works tirelessly to make sure this site is beneficial for everyone.  Please, let's help Warren keep the site clean by utilizing the SEARCH function before asking questions.   Most of what you're going to ask on this forum has "probably" been discussed, sometimes ad nauseum, and re-creating a NEW post on a subject that's been talked to death just clogs the site up with unnecessary threads.
      First and foremost ...... Welcome! 
      Please feel free to ask questions and LEARN,... we're all here for that purpose for sure, HOWEVER .... please make sure the information you're looking for isn't already available to you on the site by doing a simple search before posting a question, shown below:

      Then, choose where you want to search, either THIS FORUM, or you can use GOOGLE as shown below:

      The attachment below shows a sample search for a Wilson Mask in the Search area.  Both Google and "this forum" produced the same results.   HINT: You can use quotation marks around the words you're looking for to create a 'phrase' which can fine-tune your search.

      Here is the 'results' page showing 109 'hits' and 5 pages worth of information.

      This information can be used for all forums, but we have found that 'searches' help the most on the equipment board.
      Finally, this post is NOT MEANT to be rude or condescending.  It's simply a good way to ensure that information we have on this site is maintained in the same area instead of having great info and answers to common questions scattered all over the place.  Nothing less, nothing more, I promise!  
      Enjoy, and happy reading!

      Hey everyone,
      So I have a Force 3 V3 CP which I absolutely love. However, one problem I have is the edges of some of the plates are protruding out. I want to try and form the plates to better contour the CP to my chest. Any suggestions, methods that have worked??

      Was watching the game last night and was wondering if anybody knows who the manufacturer is for the mask the plate umpire was wearing last night?  And the throat guard as well?
      And wasn't it great to watch live baseball again?

      I've seen a lot of umpires take their mask off with their right hand; both partners I've worked with and even high level umpires online.
      I thought you weren't supposed to use your right and I personally only use my left hand and would never go right.
      But it okay to use your right hand? If you're an evaluator/assigner, would you ding someone for using their right?
