2016 Umpire School: Daytona Beach, 6 week proffesional course.

As most of you know I attended back in 2013 and learned so much about umpiring. I did not do as well as I would of liked, but they wanted me to come back the following year. Obviously that didn’t happen due to payments for school, car, and other expenses.  I would love to go back in 2015 but I do not think that would be enough time to save the large amount of tuition that it takes to get down there. I have been doing some games around the St. Louis area, and getting a lot more experience and trying to get better every game. I am still nowhere near the talent level of most umpires around here, but I know I will continue to work hard and eventually one day be half as good as some umpires around here.

            I enjoy running the umpire program at the local Belleville Khoury League as well, and I have always said If I cannot make it , maybe I can help train someone else too! I would love to gain more experience not only for my own chance to make it, but if that doesn’t work out, maybe I can bring back more knowledge, and help others live out their dream!

Every game I do, I feel like my passion grows for umpiring, and I know that is what I want to do for a career. I love it. The only way to get serious about moving up in the umpiring world is to attend umpire school and then a whole lot more has to fall into place. I know if I do not get back, it would be extremely hard to move up seriously in the land of umpiring.

            Time is also ticking, as it takes a long time to climb up. Most guys that attend school are anywhere from 18-24 so I do not want to miss out and wait to long. I need to get back down there. 

 there is so much to umpring that it really is like any other degree people  go for.  I know that I want to master umpring and become the best possible. I feel like I have a good oppurtinity so figured  I give this a whirl and see where it goes. 

 You never know where umpiring might take you in life.
