Crew How-To: Pressing and Ironing Your Umpire & Referee Pants
Ty gives you detailed, step-by-step, instructions to keep your umpire or referee pants looking sharp and crisp.
Love the Smitty plate umpire pants! Size was perfect, and expandable waist is helpful. I like the quality and feel of the material, and the re-enforced seat. Plenty of room for shin guards too.
The expander waist band is nice. Wish they maintained their color better though.
Both the plate and base umpire pants are great. The expander waist is wonderful during the early spring and cold weather when wearing an extra layer.
