I am a baseball extremist from Southern California. I've been married for over 20 years and have three children, including one accomplished ballplayer. I have worked in baseball in numerous capacities at all levels from the big leagues on down for over 30 years. In recent years, I turned to umpiring as yet another way to be close to the game, and it has worked out marvelously. My favorite teams are the UCLA Bruins and the Los Angeles Angels, and I have strong ties to both clubs, particularly the Bruins.
