Recommended Posts

Hey guys North NJ ump here. Been doing this since I was 13 and I'm still learning new things or seeing things I've never seen all season long. Hope to learn even more from the guys on here!

Welcome! How old are you now, if you don't mind me asking?

Thank God. There's still time for you to get out of Jersey,

I'm kidding! I'm kidding. Half my family is from Jersey.

But they did all leave. So there's that.

hey now...watch it...It's not all bad. At least for umpiring. It's not like some areas where there's 7 schools in a 200 mile radius. We have hundreds in North Jersey alone. Our pay isn't bad either. So we got that going for us ;)

Welcome @bluejersey. I'm thinking there's a pretty good chance I know you?

Welcome @bluejersey. I'm thinking there's a pretty good chance I know you? 

Get in good with Richvee in Jersey.

Or!!!!!!! (using a little googling geography here) step up your game to NCAA D1 and move to UMP45 territory in Greensboro, NC to maximize your abilities and earning power even if you could care less about money with plenty of NCAA D1 within 200-210 miles.

NC, NC State, Duke, Wake Forest, UVA, VTech, Elon, East Carolina, UNC Charlotte, UNC Wilmington, UNC Greensboro, NCA&T, ASU, Davidson, Campbell, High Point, Radford, Gardner Webb, North Carolina Central, Wofford, Furman, VMI, Winthrop, Presbyterian, Liberty, Longwood, James Madison, East Tennessee State and probably others, (UNC Asheville, URichmond, VCU, Coastal Carolina, USC). The majority of the schools above are assigned through the ACC assignor or designated assistant assignors (non-Con) for the ACC assignor.

This is very true. There's no shortage of schools and town or club teams in the area.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm sure we've at least crossed paths.

now, I'm in PA and wondering if it is just me or hasn't anyone else noticed?  JERSEY is working the ultimate scam!!!  If you want to go to the Jersey Shore (no, not the TV kind), or Atlantic City, Wildwood or Cape May........That fine.  Go enjoy yourself, and I'm sure you'll have a great time.  However, when you get ready to go home, THAT"S when they've gotcha.

See, every bridge that I've been over getting into Joisey is a straight shot right into the "Garden State".  But if you try to LEAVE , you have to pay a toll to get out of the state!!

Also, if you fly into Philly airport at night, you get a CLEAR understanding of the line from Miss Congeniality where Sandra Bullock was asked why NJ was called the Garden State.  Her response seemed fitting...........Because it's too hard to fit "Oil and Petrochemical Refinery State" on a license plate?

I am originally from Union County. I moved across to PA in 2002. Love it.

Family still in NJ, but it doesn't take me 30 minutes to go to the store to get milk :).

The Lehigh Valley is a great area if you ever leave NJ!

You can escape" for free via the northern route into NY State. They seem to like to charge people for driving over water.

It is worth noting here that the fee is not for leaving NJ, but rather for entering PA, NY. 

Another piece of trivia, 60% of NJ is covered by pine barrens.

That's crazy. Then add all the forest, woodlands and farms up here in the north.....

Go down to Monmouth, Burlington, western Somerset, and Hunterdon and you will see amazing farms (horse and crops).  Yeah, Linden and the NJ Turnpike and parts of Mercer and Camden Counties are a bit rough, there is more than meets the eye.

(Bergen County Born, Somerset County raised.)

My stat may be dated, but when you started at the Driscoll bridge south to Delaware, from a mile or less inland across to Camden/Trenton was all pine trees. Back when route 9 was 2 lanes and dirt shoulder. Burbs have creeped in.
