A Decent Night at the Ballfields

Last night I had the opportunity to work a game with a Double A umpire. Ian started umpiring at my association when he was 18 and half way through his first game, the Umpire and Chief and I told him that he needed to go to umpire school. Well, long story short, he went and now at the age of 24 he is a double A umpire. Pretty cool.

Anyways, when he season is over, he always comes back and works a few games with us. Last night, I got to work with him and he is an amazing umpire. Unfortuanetly, the game, was not a very good game. He didn't have much to do in the field but it was nice to watch his positioning and mechanics. I took a few notes, asked a lot of questions and for once I enjoyed a 16-1 blow out.
