Re: sunglasses

That's what I've got. I think they're an amazing value. They're lightweight, clear, distortion-free, well-fitting (though admittedly may be large on smaller faces), and you can 20 of them of them for...

Re: Concussion protocal

It's admittedly a blunt instrument, but the more I've learned about other states, the more I've grown to appreciate the Ohio law and how it can relieve the competitive pressures and potential...

Re: GUTLESS - NFHS (Rule change)

I'd be more open to their talk of how this will promote smooth game management and their blather about 'educational-based athletics' IF at the same time they banned coaches coming onto the field...

Re: GUTLESS - NFHS (Rule change)

Has it really? Ejection is still an option on the first offense if it's deemed to be a major violation. That's still judgment. Now maybe that disappears in future years - but till then, it does seem...

Re: Hawk Harrelson

Wegner, actually, but yea, that one was entertaining. Great comedic timing, unintentionally of course.

Re: Hawk Harrelson

He tried to a few yrs back and Hawk had a pissy little hissy fit. Wouldn't sit next to him, ignored him all the time, just was a giant baby about it. Ran to ownership to complain, so they shackled...

Re: My partner

Depends on the area....I'd say 90+% of the youth baseball around here is FED-based, with varying degrees of local modification.

Re: Hit in back of head by foul ball

Well, it's not the only way, but it's a very good way. I won't get caught up in the hsm/tm debate yet again, but to me? False choice - I have both. I like the lower vision of my Diamond mask with...

Re: Color of Hockey Style Mask

Personally, because of design, comfort, and safety, I would never use any other helmet other than the All-Star MVP 2500 or 4000. I think the 2500 is the better buy for anyone short of college/pro -...

Re: how not to get drilled in back of head?

Also, one thing that may help is not to turn to the base till you read a good throw. You don't have to follow it in all the way, but at least watch to see if it's reasonably on line. If so, snap to...

Re: All-Star System 7 CP

I had a WV Gold and sold it to get an All Star a couple yrs ago. I loved the Gold, I had shots that I didn't even feel bounce off it. But with the stock harness, I either had to cinch it up tight or...

Re: Championship Game Ejections

So, basically, you're an enabling prostitute. It's ok, the money is good! Just don't be surprised if the "WELCOME" on the chest of all your shirts doesn't come out in the wash.

Re: What have been your most conentious (correct) calls?

Batter interference on a catcher trying to throw out a steal at 2B. Everyone's watching the play, no one sees what you call, almost none of them know the rule, plus since it's a delayed dead ball,...

Re: One Ball Bag or Two?

I like the symmetry of two bags, plus I keep my brush and one ball in my right bag, all other balls in the left. I'm right-handed and find that I'm quicker to get that ball and brush out quicker when...

Re: Need help, pitcher's feet

not Ken, but he sure could....as long as the pivot is entirely in contact and parallel to the plate and the non-pivot is somewhere in front of the plate, he's fine

Re: Remove the 45' line?

Harold Reynolds....Super Genius.

On the subject of the 45 ft line, I wouldn't have any problem really if the RLI rule was redefined as 2 feet on either side of the foul line or something like...

Re: Replay reviews

The problem lies with the unnecessary and IMO unwise reinterpretation of the catch/no-catch transfer rule. Absent that, I have very little problem with how replay is working, other than length of...

There isn't a lot of research on this, but I've read Brad from All-Star discuss some of their research that largely debunks the idea that a spinning mask reduces much force. As I recall, he stated...

Re: new eye black policy in NJ

That's because it's actually, explicitly against the rules (added last year). There is no specific prohibition in Fed baseball, unless a state adds their own. If a kid wants to put on warpaint,...
