First Anniversary for the Road Umpire in Arizona

10 posts in this topic

Today is my one-year anniversary since departing my native state of Wisconsin so as to pursue the dream of climbing as high up the the mountain of baseball quality as I can go. Factoring in that I was also working at Huge Rainforest Company full-time, overnight shifts for 9 of the 12 months, I managed to call 384 gamescovering the entire range from 10U Little League thru 12U Academy ball thru 14U-18U Travel and Showcase Ball thru Arizona HS Varsity ball thru Collegiate ball thru MSBL / NABA / Adult -league ball thru to actual, bonafide MiLB Spring Training games.

Many of you here receive my thanks for your support, as do more than a few people outside of this forum; but, none receives my appreciation more so than @KenBAZ.

Now to see where this next year takes me...

Only, 384 games in the past year? Not bad considering you spent the first three months whining about how no one was ever going to assign you

 

We're lucky to have you here and it's been great to add such a good umpire and friend to our community. Just learn to stay on your side of the fence!

You also forgot performing surgery on multiple chest protectors and introducing the world to the Schutt MaXV.

Congrats, buddy! That's a lot of games, my man! I lived down there for 4 years in the early 00's. Got transferred for work. Missed it ever since.

I look forward to joining you in Arizona next week! I'm calling my last game in Seattle tonight.

Ken, thanks again for the info you emailed to me. I've been crazy busy lately but I will start reaching out to assignors this week.

Jealous. 

Oh wait, I'm moving to LA. 

Nevermind Johnny :D

That sounds too much like a dubious invitation for an evening of adult libations.
