Do you flinch?

An umpire may utilize the product below to stop it.

http://www.baseballwarehouse.com/sto...artnerid=shcom

The product is designed to keep a batter's head in a positive position. Once the mouth piece is in place, you will know if you flinch or not. If you do flinch too often, then for a relatively small cost, this product will help you overcome that.

HA! I just see it now. Some old guys dentures, hanging by a chain, bouncing against his cup.

Nice.


I think I'd rather flinch like a spastic cat on crack than wear that nonsense. Thanks though.

Smile I can admit

I am not endorsing the baseball product. Just making it known to 10% of our umpire brethen who may want to come out of the closet and admit that they flinch much too often. It may not be political correct to make that public at the moment either.

I flinched when I first saw the following product. I couldn't figure out how a seamstress would make such an obvious gaff. Makes a good "your moma's so ugly" joke.

Did you flinch right away and have a second look?

Wasn't there a young lady in the LL softball WS that did that last season?

Yes there was.

But what if you saw the plate umpire do the same thing?

I would pay good money to see the umpire put the batter's collar in his mouth!
