Hahaha!

I agree with mbyron. I'm not arguing that he's a bad UMPIRE, but his mechanics are something not to emulate as a young umpire.

Please don't shoot the beanie cap wearer! I still wear one; have no aspirations to get to the majors, I'm too old. I just like its old school look, and frankly, it gets me remembered by coaches (sometimes good, sometimes bad). Now if I can just get my hand on a balloon protector............

I find comments like "call it both ways blue" are best to ignore. If the comments about balls and strikes persist, I might call the coach out of the dugout and ask him to keep his players under control.

My advice would be to never do this again.

He used to use the 50" laces but they weren't very strong so he had to keep a backup pair of shoes with him at all times in case a lace broke. Now he found a stronger pair of laces but they only come in 48". He switched to these and now only has to keep one set of plate shoes in his trunk.

He's been on a strict diet & excersize routine - he's down to the 44's now.

Older, basically 16 and up. Anything in which the dugout is far enough away that I would have to raise my voice for their dugout to hear me give a warning.
