  5. Volunteer UIC survey help...

    Best part of it he got his a$$ tossed in two tournaments Guess who was doing the games, his former UIC in one tournament and his former safety officer in the other tournament. Both tournaments had a rule that if you were ejected you were out for the remainder of the tournament. We both had drinks to celebrate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Volunteer UIC survey help...

    Our UIC Is also Exec board member. Still he $hit canned the UIC and replaced him with one of his do as I say people. He also tossed me as Safety Officer for forming a Colt team. League did not cover that age before. Sadly no one wants to be associated with him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Volunteer UIC survey help...

    First of you need the chairman of the league that you are associated with to have your back in situations involving all league matters. Not a person who is two faced. Also the chairman as a non coach. The league that I was associated with, the chairman just disrespected the umpires. He got ejected and threatened that the umpire will never do a game in the league again. All the umpires took a stand and formed a protest at his next game. The league is now on life support with possible LL charter being removed. Also the volunteers need to have room to do their own thing, not being constantly micro managed and throw under the bus.

  8. East Coast Stadiums

    I am from Pittsburgh and I agree PNC Park is one of if not the best park in MLB. Need to take incline to top of Mt Washington to fully see the 'Burgh and take a trip to the Strip District to Primanti Brothers on 18th street. Sandwiches with fries and coleslaw on it.

  10. Cell Phones

    Umpiring does not take a back seat to your day job. You would not like it if you were the backup and the calls started going to you would you? I have since changed departments which will make my day job a little easier as far as oncall coverage is concerned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Cell Phones

    I am in banking and support applications for debit cards and fraud. Usually it is quite but when I get a call I normally have 2 hour resolution time. Normally just inform my backup and continue game Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Cell Phones

    I carry one on the field due to being oncall for my full time job. Need to be available incase I am needed on off hours. It is kept on mute and in back pocket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Foul Ball correction

    No, not in this situation due to PU killing the play with the Foul Ball announcement. But I would get with him either between innings or at post game to talk about this.

  15. Respecting An Organization's President

    I wouldn't say financial motive. Just wants to push his own agenda and doesn't give a crap how he goes about it. His day is coming sooner than I thought. Just got my fall schedule tonight and I have 2 of his games that his team is playing at another teams field. Plan on going into those games with no resentment but his rope will be shorter than normal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
