Rookie from Southern California

Hey guys,

 

Name is Jacob. I live in Ontario, California. I just recently started umping but literally have played baseball since I was walking. I played catcher all the way up until I was 19 years old (29 now)

 

Completely lost interest in baseball when I hit college. Played a season at a small college and just lost the love for the game..... I really didnt even watch a complete game until about 2 years ago when my boys wanted to start playing (10 and 5) Little League I was even skeptical about putting them in due to having no interest in it....

 

Of course.... Once I got the beautiful game back in my blood it just ignited my love for it like never before.... Now I help coach both teams and another Junior level team. I basically live at the park so I decided to start umping.... The umpire association literally could not tell that I've never umpired a game before so they set me on my way pretty fast. 

 

Now I cannot get enough and I want to keep learning and making my way up to the higher divisions as well. Right now I am just doing minor, major, and Junior games as of now but I can tell this is just the beginning...

 

Any tips are always offered and I'm here always looking to upgrade my gear lol

Hi AJ - 

I just got back into umpiring as an adult. Started as a Junior Umpire back in the day. I'm in SoCal as well. Feel free to reach out if you ever want to compare notes.
