Recently I was corresponding with the Editor-in-Chief of Officating.com. As some of you know, I am a basketball guy, not a softball whiz, and I write about basketball for this very website. But Carl and I were discussing how I umpired softball at a fairly high level in a previous life.
I offered to Carl the fact that I might have a few things to say about that topic. Frequent Officiating.com readers, and I'm sure there are thousands of you out there, know that I generally can't shut up about any topic. From Play Station to Boston, to my favorite movies, to helpful tricks to fool the wife – I just can't shut up. The topic of softball umpiring is no exception!
Where was I?
Oh, yeah, I was supposed to come up with something about softball!
