Discussion: Pitchers Chest Protection

I just finished my league game wearing the chest protector. It didn't bother me at all, pitching or fielding. As for batting I was 3/4 & hit the ball hard. Didn't notice the vest at all even while running the bases. Oh, we won 21-10.
Did not get hit by any balls, which is ok by me!! I'm sure that test will come someday.

More to follow next week in Vegas, but for now it's everything DOWNS said it was!

Thanks,

Chief

DOWNS & JETHRO...Received it today & have tried it on & have been swinging a bat. I am going to wear it tonight in my local league game & see how it goes. As I said above, I found it on Amazon, ordered it on Apr 10 & received it today.

Jim, thanks for your input & Ed says hi & thanks for the + comments.. We play against each other tonight!!

More to follow,

Chief, Win, Ret AF

Jim, I found the same protector on Amazon for the same price. It will be delivered on Wed. Ed Daniels is my driving/room mate most of the time. ISt Geo last year. R u going to Vegas next week? I'll be sure to say hi for you.

I spend a lot of time in the SeaTac area, Burien, as my wife is from Tacoma.

Thanks for the info & I'll let you know how it goes.

Take care,

Jim, are you the Jim Downs from Fresno? If you are I play with several players who used to play fast pitch with you. Never played fast pitch but umpired many games at Holmes & Romain. I manage/play the Game On 70M team. Chief

Discussion: Pitchers Chest Protection

I have seen many pitchers using a form of chest protection. Any thoughts on which may be the best. I am a fairly large "target", 6'2, 215 & am thinking about getting some sort of protection. I also TD at times & might need it sometime! LOL
I would like to hear from others who use chest protection, what you think & where to get something.
Thanks

Discussion: Sun rule

#19 - What position do you play? If you don't pitch, may I suggest you get on the mound & see how you like it! If you are a pitcher, then good for you.

Discussion: Sun rule

As a pitcher I can relate to the sun rule & the sometime benefit of delaying the game to protect the pitcher.
I also know that sometimes I make a pitch & know it is coming back at me. No problem with that.
However, when you have a M+ team playing a AAA team & coming up the middle 9 times in 5 innings, I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT! I was hit 5 times & not one word from the hitters! It was a seeding game in St George & they were beating us by 10+ runs. They said because we were not playing a rover, "the middle was open"! If they wanted batting practice, go somewhere else!

If that is "crying", so be it!

Discussion: Ruling clarification

It happened this past weekend at BLD & it was called correctly by the umpire & the Field Director. Batter was called out for stepping out of the box & hit it over the fence, batter out, HR added to teams total.

I loving playing out there in "hell"(fields 3&4)! Not only do you get to play some great softball, you almost always get an airshow thanks to the USAF! How many times do you get to see the AF Thunderbird's perform while standing in the outfield!!

AF retired guy!!

The Seals didn't want to play the Champ game or possibly the if game. So there was no Champ game played, Roofing won 1st place with the Seals taking the 2nd place awards!
