Umpire School Questions

Recommended Posts

Guest Teenjunkie92

 I loved all the stories on Umpire Schools this year, Does anyone know the following answers to these questions?

 

1. How many students attended Harry's and The Umpire School?

 

2, How many went to the evaluation camps/school/How many were offered jobs?

 

3. Does anyone know if the man who lost 100 lbs then attended Harrys made it to the evaluation camp?

    (Great story, look it up Allan Park)

87 attended TUS, and I heard from a student at Harry's that they had over 120.

 

27 from TUS went on to the eval course, not sure how many from Harry's. Not sure how many they hired from each school. I heard from a student that 15 went to rookie league, and another 15 went to short A, but I'm not sure I understood exactly what he meant.

 

Sounds like Allan Park is a great story

Thanks JonnyCat!

 

I loved your daily post on your experience at The Umpire School. Sounds very similar to Jim Evans school I attended in 92/94 while I was both 18 and 20 years old. While I never made it Pro. I would not take back those 2 years and would attend again in a heartbeat. The experience was worth a lifetime. Thank you again for the stories!

The final number I heard on Wendelstedt was 142. This could be off though, and I'm guessing it includes their two week students as well... 28 went to the eval course from WUS.

 

I will check with some friends on that story and get back to you. I don't personally know him.

Brent Rice was an instructor at Bruce Doane's camp earlier this month.  I asked him and he said that there were 150 students and 30 were sent to PBUC.

150 Wow is that the norm?

Not sure, Jax.  From what I've read, it appears the class size typically ranges between 120-150... :shrug:

No offense intended - just for the record, his name is Matt Cowen. The story line is from a geographical area called Allen Park, but we are none the less inspired by his determination and success. Great job. Matt!

No offense intended - I'm so happy to know this information 13 months later...

I'm not sure if Matt made it.  He was one of my instructors at the Southeast Michigan Umpire Camp Feb 13th and 14th.   Maybe @mjr_2013 can find out ......
