Umpire Walk

Recommended Posts

SO if any of you follow the MiLB Umpire Academy on twitter, you know they post different clips of the umpire "walk".......from the locker room to the field.  This is done on different fields.  Well, the picture below was at point stadium in Johnstown, PA after a torrential downpour. Those "little black rubber pellets" that are in the A-turf fields, washed down the steps of the dugout, down the steps to the hallway, and clogged up the drain..........I sent MiLB Umpire Academy the picture below asking if they have walks like this, and received no response.

Yeah, it really wasn't all that funny, I admit.

Honestly, I'm laughing now. :wave:

I was too..............but I just HAD to be "that guy"

 

The was one amazing thing to see ( not inside the flood museum).  I think it's the courthouse, and on the outside at the corner of the building (by the intersection) are high water mark plaques, mounted to the building.  Kind of puts things in perspective when standing there, looking UP at them.

No wonder they moved the PSAC Championships out of there.  Last game I had there this year (D2 conference play 2 7's) when we go let the HC know we have arrived he says "well if we get into an issue of delays, we are probably going to have to call the game because the transformer blew out and we have no lights"  A very historic field with some cool dimensions, but all and all a dump.

It is a fact (I was told this by Dave Mellor (head's groundskeeper)) that when this amount of rain falls at Fenway Park (every few years or so), fish end up in the dugout.  Somehow, the drains in the dugout connect to the harbor and the fish can swim up the drains and into the dugout.

And that's no fish story.
