1 - 2 weeks availability


In baseball, the umpire, when not ignored, is typically vilified, and yet he is as much a fan and an active participant as anyone else in the game. This memoir presents baseball from that point of view. Recounting his 35 years of experience, the author provides the reader with a humorous retelling of what it is like to work as an umpire in youth baseball leagues. It is a perspective that is rarely afforded to the spectator but which is a vital part of the baseball experience.
