Brandon Misun is going to Jarboe's crew in the PCL. There is a new Rover in the PCL and IL and one of the PCL crew chiefs has retired.

I enjoy your posts and appreciate your passion infollowing the MiLB umpires the way you do (I am VERY close to one of the AAA Umpires). You will have more work to do when short season starts next week!!

Thank you, and yes I will have some work to do with the upcoming short A season.

Just in case some people on the board have met a MiLBU or knew someone trying to become a MiLBU for whatever reason (local clinics, umpire school, personal friend, etc), I list this info so they can keep up with them if they are so inclined.
From reading, it is a tough road to haul. I will try and get the short A's up the day or day after they open if time permits. Hopefully the list will be accurate. There could be a local fill in that I would not know about in some cases, if by chance someone does not get to their league on time or whatever else comes up.

Added NYPenn and Gulf Coast. Both had rosters up. Northwest starts Friday. Pioneer Monday. Appalachian Tuesday. Arizona Wednesday.

Also, going back over the box scores, I noticed only 2 umpires not working the last 2 days from the list above. Max Guyll and Kiff Kinkead, both in the Texas League. Hopefully they are OK and not out for injury or concussions.

I also know from reading that the rankings for the umpires for the first half should be out around this time. There could be some personal decisions having to be made at this time of year.

Welcome to AAA----Brandon Misun is working his first ever AAA game, Colorado at Las Vegas and has 3B. 101 degrees and clear, winds are 7mph moving right to left.


Adam Schwarz and Gabriel Morales are working a 2 man in the TL as Misun's replacement has not arrived yet.

I worked some high school games with Mike before he headed off to the GCL. He's a good guy and a good umpire.

I've seen this roster posted a couple of times and I don't know why my name continues to appear on the TL roster. I fill in occasionally when someone is hurt/sick but I haven't yet this year. Guess I should see about getting some Texas League pay! ;)

"HDS. I know Funnerman was having some family issues.. I hope everything is ok.. that is who I filled in for."

Here is an old article from the IL where local college umpire Wally Bissett was working the bases and the League President backed him up. Glad you guys haven't had this.

Also, he just worked the plate tonight in Norfolk and guess what happened in the 2nd inning. You guessed it. I am not busting on him. Glad to see he is taking care of business when necessary.

Ejections: Norfolk Tides left fielder Bill Hall ejected by HP umpire Wally Bissett (2nd)
Umpires: HP: Wally Bissett. 1B: Jon Byrne. 3B: Will Little.
