  1. I had games hitting over Christmas and New Years... I know he was still making assignments when this all hit, so there were more games out there...
  2. I had one lone hold out game on my schedule from one of the Trinity league schools... they just cancelled. Officially it is over, all hope is lost. Man... this is a lot of red!
  3. OK, watching this makes me sad... that is Amerige Park in Fullerton... I umpire there during the HS season!
  4. I was actually thinking along the same line... at least for our HS units. When I started in our group, we had +/-260 umpires, this season we are down to +/-170, maybe less who were actually working. If jobs are impacted, we may see a decent influx, at least until the economy comes back, at least for the HS units. What I can see happening however is a decrease in game fees. Being in So. Cal, weather is normally not an issue, so we play year round. If there is a sudden influx of people willing to take games, I can see the travel teams and other leagues lowering game fees. You or I may not be willing to pull a 7-9 inning solo game for $45-$50 versus the normal $60-$90, but someone who is hungry will. And I doubt, even if there are more officials, that teams will suddenly be willing to spring for two officials. Now you want to pay me $50 for a 7 inning game with a partner for a travel game? Sure, that I can see doing. $50 for that same game solo? Sorry, not interested.
  5. Many of you may be seeing this on Facebook and around the other social media sites... Just post an umpire related pic, hopefully of you, in happier and more on the field times... something to keep us all entertained. No comment needed about the pic.
  6. I don't look anything like those models, so I am scared to use it.
  7. Just got the email as well. At this rate, fall ball will be postponed next!
  8. I don't recall... I just screen shot it when I couldn't read the thread.
  9. I access from work most often and cannot use browsers and other tools which I would like to use. My issue is not the ads themselves... but that they are displaying over content.
  10. So in my day job, I work for a national ISP. We just announced that if schools close and students need to be shifted to distance/on line learning, we will provide them, assuming they are not already customers, free basic internet for up to 60 days. When the cable industry starts to be proactive, I get worried! Now if Waffle House closes, I know were screwed.
  11. LL in our area is closed until at least 4/6, per the recommendation of LL HQ. HS - My son's district has cancelled all games, but they can practice. Many other districts are cancelling, or they are currently moving to a 'no fans in attendance' policy, although in the next week or so, I bet that changes. As for the hysteria... if our media could stop being a debate channel and get back to actual reporting of facts, and if our leaders could stop bickering and actually lead, much of the hype surrounding these events could be quelled. As it is, the lack of information, conflicting information or just passing of bad/poor information is driving people to react, thus the fun at the local Target or Costco. Stay safe.... wash your hands and wait for the zombie apocalypse.
  12. Our LL District is on hiatus until 4/6, but unless something drastic changes, that date will most likely move again. HS - my sons district cancelled all sporting contests, although teams can still practice. I was scheduled to umpire at Anaheim Stadium on Monday for a HS game, but one of the schools district just posted they are cancelling all sports contests as well... so although my Arbiter still shows the game as current, it is not going to happen. Several of our districts are stating games can commence provided no fans are in attendance... should make for quiet games . I bet within the next day or so, these districts will come around and cancel these contests as well. I know many umpires who, regardless of the districts stances will not work games due to the increased risk factors... especially when you consider a HUGE swath of our umpires are in the higher risk age category. Sucks for Seniors, but such is life. Stay safe my friends. Kevin
  13. That... and the ads covering the content is pretty cool.
  14. The placement has some to be desired...
  15. I guess they just want to make the game unwatchable... Let's keep tweaking rules which the players grew up having to follow, and then just overnight expect their muscle memory of how they play to be replaced by something new. Ugg.
