Back at it

Recommended Posts

I'm finally back at it. I umpired for about 5 years but changed careers and my schedule didn't allow me to do games. I went back to teaching and the first thing I did was to call my assignor and let him know that I was coming back. I have my first scrimmage today and I can't wait, except that it's going to be freezing.

Have fun! I don't know where Shillington is, but in where I'm at we're about to get hammered with more snow, so it may be a while!?

Younger people just aren't coming in,  many of those who do don't stay.

Reasons often heard is that:

  •  Unless Self-employed or retired, Game times do not match up well with availabilities
  • Parent/ Coach/ Fan abuse
  • Radically differing pay scales and procedures

That happened over here in Western PA.  there is one chapter that straight up told their schools "we can't do all your games."   So for JV they are bringing a few teams to one field on a saturday and using one umpire for 3-4 games
