But 4b, wouldn't it be easier to wear a ball cap with a dark visor?

Interesting idea 4b.

Discussion: EYE BLACK?

It seems like anything black will help keep the sun from deflecting off your skin just below your eyes. I use the lipstick occasionally and it seems to help. I'm going to experiment with electrical tape some day. #5 welding wrap around glasses work very well. Currently I'm using a pair of #5's that fit over my prescription glasses. Best of both worlds.

This late in the LLWS, they probably are using the best umpires they evaluated during the series. Yes, the plate ump had a very fair and consistent strike zone.

Discussion: Little League World Series

I imagine over the decades of the LLWS, just about every state has had LL umpires take part. Probably not a year that the umpiring hasn't had questionable calls at the plate and bases.

The umpires at the LLWS are volunteers. As for the strike zone, go here.

As for the Major League strike zone.

Rule 2.00: The Strike Zone
The STRIKE ZONE is that area over home plate the upper limit of which is a horizontal line at the midpoint between the top of the shoulders and the top of the uniform pants, and the lower level is a line at the hollow beneath the kneecap. The Strike Zone shall be determined from the batter's stance as the batter is prepared to swing at a pitched ball.

The problem for me is I feel the plate umpire calls the catchers glove, not when the ball crosses "over home plate". The plate umpire is supposed to picture the batters strike zone at the plate, especially when many batters are deep in the box. That puts the catcher probably 5-6' behind the plate. So a pitcher might have a pitch go through the batters strike zone but caught by the catcher 6" off the plate or a few inches off the ground.

I believe the low point is moving up to the knees next year (?).

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Using screen for pitcher

Our St. G senior leagues use the portable style screens that teams travel with. One league calls a strike if hit. If you have two non hit screen strikes you're allowed one more screen hit. Another league calls it a dead ball. The pitcher didn't get hit and they don't penalize the batter. Screens are placed about 10-12' in front of pitcher. One league allows batter to request pitcher to move up to 6' to either side of the rubber if the sun is an issue. When requested, the screen moves in front of pitcher. Pitchers can still play defense. Thrown balls during a play that hit the screen are live. Balls for the game are kept in the screen base.

This is the one I've had for 2+ years now. Easy to pack, the top holds up very well. Like any of these products, don't over tighten the screws.

Until Sacramento can prove otherwise, one must figure they do not want to spend the time or money to get the results in a timely manner, but damn it, you best get the check in on time.

A lot easier when there's only 59 teams, but one would imagine if an hour a week was set aside, the April Vegas resulsts (194 teams) would be done by now.

To pass mustard, the bat would not have enough tacky stuff in order for a round ball to have enough surface space to attach to a round bat.

Discussion: Calling all pitchers.

Good info from everyone. Thank you. If I had 30/40+ plus years of pitching experience this topic would not have been submitted. A field is 1/4 mile away. Time to chip away at those million pitches and use my regulation sized towel plate for pitching more so than BP.

Muscle memory keeps telling me I have enough velosity, but I'm usually short. Until I get this figured out, it's OF & IF for me.
