Dottelife Posted November 5, 2022 Report Share Posted November 5, 2022 After 25 years of being an ump I have decided to retire. I am 46 years old and in great shape, still love to ump but have had enough of everything outside of the lines. - travel baseball is destroying the sport. Complexes are now telling umps they can’t eject without permission, coaches and parents are allowed to act crazy and say anything to us, as long as they pay that money no one seems to care. - I am sick and tired of working solo and not getting both paychecks. I am doing the work of 2 people why am I not getting paid for it? - started carrying a gun in my car this year after a fellow ump was attacked in the parking lot by a coach who had a bat. If I need to carry a gun to work what does that say about my job? It’s been a great ride and I salute you boys for doing what you are doing but for me it’s enough and I have too much pride to be treated like this by people who don’t care. 1 2 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
