Even Aspiring Umpires Know Better

Recommended Posts

Hey, if a 10-year old kid can put on and wear a mask with his hat brim forward, you can too!!

Heck, he even wears black. Navy is obsolete... everyone knows it.

Stopped by a junior umpires field today and he was wearing his hat backwards. I walked on to the field and Gibs slapped him. Problem solved.

Also does a hell of a job at putting the ball back in play!

Man... This needs to be mandatory viewing for all the rec leagues with in-house umps in my area. Waaayyy too many hats backwards, of course that assumes they:

   a. Have a hat

   b. Have a black umpire hat, instead of a random sports team hat...

And don't even get me started on standing behind the catcher and what an appealable play is..

Well at some levels you HAVE to stand behind the catcher.  It's a matter of survival. 

And you know that strap on the back of the catcher's chest protector?  It also doubles as a handle... sort of a modified balloon chest protector. :D
