Discussion: Pitcher does what?

Webbie25 ~ You don't have to move off the base.

Most F5's I know will get excited, and touch the base first. I'm standing on it. Might as well try to lead to confusion if I'm going to be toast.....LOL

Discussion: Pitcher does what?

One thing I try to do as runner on 3B with bases loaded is just step off the bag if ball is hit to F5.

They tag the base before they tag you, the force is off.

Discussion: Pitcher's Shin Guards

To be more exact, they are made by Wilson, are called the DaviShins.

Discussion: Pitcher's Shin Guards

While on the subject of safety for pitchers, I can make a suggestion on what shin guards are excellent to wear [in my opinion]. The best thing on the market are the Gerry Davis umpire shin guards. They are light weight, very easy to move around in, and are easy on and off.

You can find them on Gerry Davis' website, as he sells umpire equipment, or find some cheaper on eBay.

Just a heads up if some of you guys are interested.

I wore them for a long time when I umpired HS baseball, and you could really feel a difference as you had to wear them under your pants.

Discussion: Pitching masks revisited

Is it just me, but aren't the bats the real problem? When I first used the Miken Ultra, I probably added a 100 ft. or more to my hits.

Discussion: Umpire Mistake

If they are using two man mechanics, the base umpire should never go out on the grass. Much inexperience when a team talks you into an out. Tell the team that appeals you only have two eyes, and if they want to get that call consistently, they can hire extra umpires.

In my opinion, any umpire that puts a runner is jeopardy should have the sense to rule on their call in such they can correct it, and make the proper amends.

Discussion: pitchers mask

I would suggest if you have a huge head, not get a helmet. Plus helmets don't have a "true" fit to the shape of one's head.

Discussion: Hitting to RF by a RH batter

Discussion: Hitting to RF by a RH batter

What I do.

Move back off the plate a little bit, and open your stance some. When swinging, keep your head, and front shoulder in. When you stride with your front foot, don't step back in towards the plate. During the swing, don't drop your right shoulder. That will cause you to pop up more often than not, or hit a little grounder.

You will probably want to pull your hands a little closer to your body, while keeping the bat head back as you swing through. When you make contact, explode with your wrists.

See if that works for you.

Discussion: face masks

If anybody is interested in wearing protective shin guards, I would suggest the ones from Gerry Davis' umpire equipment site. They are super lightweight, and easy to run in.

Discussion: face masks

Fred S,

Do you know if you have a flat, or rounded mask? Could be the difference.

You could try smaller mask pads also.

Discussion: face masks

Don't get mad, and throw a titanium mask. Yes they are light weight, but they're not the most durable masks around. Seen guys in baseball wearing them as umps, and players. The foul balls will bend the cage on occasion.

Discussion: HR rule - why????

JBTexas & PattyMac, FYI~It's harder than it looks, and I wasn't the one whining in the first place. What good does complaining do?

Try playing a baseball doubleheader on a hot Sunday afternoon. Softball is a walk in the park compared to the real sport.

I've played both, and baseball can get very competitive at the National's in Phoenix. Some teams have gone as far as to fly in a pitcher to pitch one game on a certain day on more than one occasion.

Playing wood bat, the game goes by pretty fast also. You guys complain about senior bats breaking.......oye vay with the Louisville Sluggers.

Just be thankful you can still play.

It's a different animal that will devour you in the blink of an eye. Of an eye I said!!!!

It's SLOWWWWWW pitch softball for Christ's sake. Some of you need to get over yourselves.

So many areas now have adult baseball. Try testing your skills actually playing a game where pitching really matters, catching is actually a position, bases are 90", and stealing is allowed. Oh, and you get to use wooden bats where even greater skill is involved hitting a ball than with the watered down composite bats they used in high school, and college.

Just saying

Discussion: Positioning of screen protecting pitcher

Use a screen. Buy a pitching machine. Get the pitcher a chair to sit on (or not). Pitcher cannot field balls except for flies, but can go to back up bases, or retrieve errant throws. Thrown ball hits screen, immediate dead ball. Umpires place runners at all bases.

Sports played with fast moving projectiles will always have an element of a possible severe injury.

Sorry. No more Cheetos to go with your whine.

Discussion: ~~~TIMING~~~

Just look for a pitch that is over the plate from about the armpits to the belt high. Take a nice fluid swing. Follow through. When I'm healthy, and am able to do this, I'm usually pretty successful.

Just haven't been too healthy the last couple of years for the most part. Frustrating.
